Too bad. You could have used the $2 mil to sue CC for invasion of privacy or something and get like $10 mil!! :)

IMHO, advertisers are only one step above lawyers, and those that use spam to advertise are way below!

It's scam not spam. Coca Cola didn't send that out. Some one got one for Microsoft the other day. People use these to attempt to pull off the infamous Nigeria scam. Pretty crafty seeing as some people still fall for these.

I've been reading a lot of stuff from 419Eater lately, lots of fun with scammers to be had if you've got some time on your hands! Check out the letters archive for a good read.
