are people still falling for this?

I hardly ever get junk mail/spam, but this was in my inbox (not junk folder) this morning. Is it that this trick is so old my spam filter has forgotten this is a scam mail?



Greetings from Dave Yorke,

I am Dr. Dave Yorke, Group Accountant However, I have
already sent you this same letter by post one month ago, but
I am not sure if it did get to you since I have not heard
from you, hence my resending it again.

I discovered a dormant account in my office,It will be in my
interest to transfer this fund worth $28.5M Dollars (Twenty
Eight Million Five hundred thousand Dollars) in an account
offshore. Can you be my partner?

Regards and Respect,Dave Yorke

You are obviously at the top of the Nigerian child witch mailing list. Send a large clove of garlic to your correspondent and all will be well.

Falling for what? I'm here, kickin' it in the Caribbean, after following through with this guy. It's totally legit. I swear.

Pool boy? Another Cuban Breeze, please.
