I replied to this guy, asking him what his little scam was. I never got a response. I wonder why LOL. Hotmail.com and gala.net are, of course, free e-mail addresses, which is about the biggest red flag there is that screams "scam." The point to the spam below is that I didn't get any details about it.
Here's an interesting financial scam, similar to "next-of-kin," but instead you are being asked to stand in as an "investor." It's in the upper left column. The scammer identifies him or herself only as "OV," with a free e-mail address to respond to. Click Here. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated for news about more scams as I get them.
