      This has got to be a con:

      I recieved this message about a week ago through my email linked by several blog sites:

      Charity

      Dear friend,
      Greetings in the name of the Lord,As you read this, I don't
      want you to feel sorry for me,because, I know everyone will
      die someday.
      My name is Mr Sal Rabb a merchant in
      Dubai, in the U.A.E.I have been diagnosed with Esophageal
      cancer. It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and
      right now I have only about a few months to live, according
      to medical experts.
      I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never
      really cared for anyone but my
      business.Though I am very rich, I was never Generous, I was
      always hostile to people and only focused on my business as
      that was the only thing I cared for.But now I regret all
      this, as I now know that there is more to life
      than just wanting to have or make all the money in the
      world. I have willed out most of my property and assets to
      my immediate and extended family members as well as a few
      close friends.
      I have decided to give alms to charity organizations,as I
      want this one of the last good deeds I do on earth.
      So far, I have distributed money to some charity
      organizations in the U.A.E, Algeria and Malaysia. Now that
      my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this
      myself anymore. I once asked members of my family to close
      one of my accounts and distribute the money that I have
      there to charity organization in Bulgaria and Pakistan,
      they refused and kept the money to themselves. Hence, I do
      not trust them anymore, as they are not contended
      with what I have left for them.
      The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash
      deposit of eighteen million dollars $18,000,000,00 that I
      have with a finance/Security Company abroad. I will want
      you to help me collect this deposit and dispatch it to
      charity organizations.I have set aside 10% for your time.
      God be with you.
      Sal Rabb

      I know this is a dead on con artist, but what do you all think?
      Live for the day.

      That is the latest internet scam. I get about 20 "offers" like that a day in my email inbox. It is just another scam...delete it.

      Yep, I get those all the time as well. My favorite one however is the one I got from the widow of Yassar Arafat wanting me to help her transfer money.

      sounds like a good deal. go for it. and next time you get one of these good deals how about you keep them to yourself (you make more money that way).

      My personal favorite was a forward that claimed to have an embedded address tracker. Anybody who doesn't forward this to ten people will DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE [email protected]!!1!

      Yeah, it was pretty amusing. I saved a copy, but it was on my old (evil) AOL account, so it's lost now...

      Oh wow! I just got an email from 'Mr Alfred mambo'. He wants me to safeguard $18.5, and if I agree I get 30% of the money! He says it's '100% risk free'- I'm in!

      Why do these people target me?- am i sending out some kind of hillbilly/dumbass vibe?
