Another Scam - Be careful out there.

Extract from my local paper.

"I have received a very odd email from a victim of Hurricane Katrina in the US. He says he has lost his home and business and now wants to transfer his savings to Britain to make a fresh start. If I let him send his savings to my bank account, he says I can keep 30 percent! He is not asking me for a penny, so what is the catch?"

Answer:

"The catch is that there are no savings. The whole email is a scam. Once you are hooked, the writer will ask for money to pay legal fees, or he may ask you to put up some cash as a sign of good faith before he makes you rich! Whatever the excuse, part with your money and you will never see it again."

Be aware.
