I find these so funny. They are sooooo transparent...

Think of it - you are asked to add your name to the bottom of the list
and set $XXX to someone at the top of the list (some even ask you to
send to all people on the list).

Well, if the sender followed instructions, he/she did the same thing.

So - if he/she's at the bottom of the list and money's going to the top
of the list, how did he/she get all that money?

(No answers expected - just a thought <G>).

Note: cross-posted, FUs set; re-formatted to conform to Usenet norms.

It would help if the original article had not been quoted entirely,
propogating the spam.

I sometimes get this type of thing in e-mail. When I can be
bothered (e.g. if there's a UK address) I look up the 'phone
number of the person concerned and ring them up. The mention
of a possible enquiry by the Computer Crime Department of
<<insert relevant police force here>> generally produces
gratifying results. Harsh?? perhaps....
