Why post about letters that are bogus?  I mean, why on earth would the United Nations be concerned with little old me?

Somehow, I just don’t think @vnc.bc.ca is going to get me to the UN and again I ask, why is the UN looking to me? Don’t worry there’s more…

Somehow, “Beneficiary of HUGE Funds…” just doesn’t ring true.  If you’ve seen the movie, “Captain Ron”,just picture Martin Short saying “Huge difference!” and you get the picture.

Now, I did start this out by asking the question, more or less of why the bother?  While I might find this letter somewhat amusing, there are folks out there who might be taken in by this…  ‘nuff said.

Besides, this one is so over the top it is funny…

Not to rhyme with fast but at LAST, we get to the meat of the matter, we need to mail Freddy (by the way, I love how his email changed from vcn.bc.ca to yahoo.co.jp) bank account and stuff.

I’m sure that second the email is sent, disaster would befall my financial situation…

So very nice.

They want to help me…

But who’s Ning?

Why do I need this help?

Was I trying to do this in my sleep?

Ok, Sarcasm aside… the whole email looks like..

So, it seems to be pretty well written.  Nothing really glaring.  Everything looks ok except the Sneaky Link…

When you take a closer look at “Login to Your Account” you get…

Sounds like a Pharmacy scam to me.
