My email hosting company, Webmail.us, appropriately tagged the following email as spam.....and these spammers are the worst. It sickens me to think that falsifying deaths to lure people into helping these spammers get the so-called "fortunes” out of the bank would actually work. I seriously would like to respond to these types of emails with extreme amounts of anger….but you know how that goes. Shame on you "Dr. Musa Sani", but kudos for getting the math right!
