    You can forward it to [email protected] but your pretty much wasting your time, these scams are mostly out of africa, former soviet block countries and china and there is virtually nothing anyone can do… The key is for people around the world need to realize these are scams, and to ignore them all, yet morons keep sending these people money to “process” the oil inheritance, package handling fees, etc in the insane hope that it’s legit…key is it’s not, never will be and as long as people are stupid and greedy, spammers will keep sending this nonsense.

    They are getting crafty huh? The only reason these don’t work anymore is because they are so poorly written. But I could definitely imagine this stuff working if they presented it correctly….which is really scary. How hard could it possibly be to find a scam artist who speaks english?

    Anyway, report it, but don’t expect anything. These things are a dime a dozen and can’t be stopped.
