new to the internet and e-mail, nahh, I guess its the first time I have ever recieved an e-mail like that.

I mean, I didn't plan on giving out any of my personal information, just trying to see if many others have recieved this mail and make others aware incase they get a similar e-mail.

As has been said, this stuff has been around awhile. I have also personally won the Dutch lottery 5 times in 18 months. Due to some clerical problems, all they need is my bank account number to deliver the money. Once they have your e-mail, you will be surprised at how many "friends" you have in Nigeria and other African countries that have selected you, of all the millions on the internet, to help them. The amazing thing is that people actually lose money to these guys.

two most annoying things on the internet, spams and scams, for me spam is more of a problem, I'm about to close my hotmail account because of that, and just use my personal business account to communicate with friends, the problem is, I just have this feeling that someone that I dont have in my address book will need to contact me some day and I'll wont know.
