I copied & pasted the above letter exactly as I received it. Misspellings and all. I'm stunned that this kind of ploy works on some people. Do people actually rush to provide the information requested? It's ridiculous!

I know. Sad. Even more sad is that the elderly fall for it more because they are so naive! My gradfather-in-law used to not be allowed to read his mail until his kids sorted through it. He would fall for scams. Big time!
