I received this mail....it is another phishing scam.

Good Day,
On behalf of the Trustees and Executor of the estate
of Late Clooney I once again try to notify you as my earlier letter was returned undelivered.I hereby attempt to reach you again by this same email address stated on the WILL. I wish to notify you that late Clooney made you a beneficiary to his
WILL. He left the sum of Nine Hundred and sixty Thousand Great Britain Pounds (GBP£960,000.00) to you in the codicil and last testament to his WILL.
Being a widely travelled man, he must have been in contact with you in the past or simply you were recommended to him by one of his
numerous friends abroad who wished you good. Late Clooney until his death was a member of the Helicopter Society and the Institute of Electronic & Electrical Engineers. He was a very dedicated Christian
who loved to be involved in charitable projects. His great philanthropy earned him numerous awards during his life time. Late Clooney died on the 12th day of July, 2006 at the age of 75 years, and his WILL is now ready for execution. According to him this money is to support your humanitarian activities and to help the poor and the needy in our society. Please if I reach you this time as I am hopeful, endeavour to get
back to me as soon as possible to enable me conclude my job.I can be contacted with the contact detials below.I look forward to
hearing from you as soon as possible.
Yours in Service,
Barrister Terry White.
(Head of Chambers.)




I actually receive ALOT of 'ads' like this. However..............ONE particular ad ACTUALLY had my name as 'Beneficary' ( had my name in my MAIDEN name). How funny because I sure the heck had no idea who this person was!! BOY..don't these people stop?

I just recieved the Helicopter Society and the Institute of Electronic & Electrical Engineers scam email. How do we locate, arrest and prosecute these phishermen? I have been recieving about 10 per day with this and other similar phishhooks. I reply (without opening any attachments) with "Im not sure what you want from me. Please elaborate further. Meanwhile I will forward your e-mail to my attorneys and the FBI to see if you are a legitimate business. If there is a problem with this you may e-mail me back with an explanation. I find it oddly coincidental that I have won twenty lotteries in the last week." I don't know how to report these phishnets, but I'm sure the government has a committee or something to investigate these claims. It is my belief that they are terrorist funding organizations sucking american money to use against us. It just seems too organized.
If you know where to forward these messages to have them tracked and investigated Please email me with the link and 'phishfood' in the subject line.
If we as Americans want to protect ourselves and end terrorism (which this is a form of) we must network the nation by utilizing the internet to our advantage and catch the culprits, not just ignore them. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired.
Thank you for listening.

It does amaze me that people actually think people are going to fall for these, but what's even more incredible, is that people actually do.

Crazy.
