Postal Spam

Just received a very rare postal letter from France.

I was curious as to who in France would be writing to me, and opened it to find it was the usual spam con, offering 90% of $3.5 million as next of kin, if I will only donate 10% of the legacy to some charities.

The con artist is actually in Spain – a is their claimed name.

What surprises me is that they are doing it by post. It must cost a fair bit to send letters from Europe to NZ. E-mail spam costs nothign to send, but mail does.

However if they send out 100,000 letters and even one person is stupid enough to believe it, they will make money.
