I love the e-mail scams. They’ve been out there trolling for suckers ever since Al Gore invented the Internet. Somebody must be falling for them, to. Or the crooks wouldn’t keep trying them out. Usually, these con jobs come from guy claiming to be a lawyer from Nigeria.
But here’s new one I just got from “Jill Rothstein.”
