    Default Beware of this scam!

    Hi,

    Just thought I'd bring this scam to your attention and please be aware of these type of emails ending up in your Inbox. I think it's part of a Nigerian 419 scam.

    Kind Regards

    Cass

    I've received a few emails similar to this one. It wasn't good enough for me to act on it, but it was convincing enough for me to read most of the email.
