In a freakish way, I find scams fascinating. The only people I'm interested in scamming are the scammers. What's the saying, the honest man will never be scammed?
I've decided to start posting the scams I receive, so those who Google emails too good to be true will see yes, it's a scam, back away.

I want to solicit your attention in receiving funds on my behalf. The
purpose of my contacting you is because you live in a country where I
want to invest. On receipt of your response, I will send you full
details and more information concerning the funds and myself.
I Google'd the name and found threads stating this name claims to be a soldier stationed in Iraq, got hold of some money, yada, yada, yada. Don't bite, it's a scam!
