Have you ever received email similar to this? For those "unlucky" readers and anybody who still do not know about this, let me warn you. This IS a scam email. The sender is stealing another person identitiy to cheat in the internet.

Normally they pretend to be unfortunate rich and famous, begging for help to transfer their money and will pay you for the service. I found this email in my Outlook Express Inbox folder.
