I feel sorry for the person whose life is so screwed that they fall for this scam.

Also...what are the odds that someone who has talked to a married woman named Adriana on Facebook, did have an affair AND deleted her, would receive this email?

I got one of these just the other day. For just a moment I thought I had amnesia.

I must be naive or dense or something. I cannot quite figure out from this e-mail what commercial use could be made of it.

I would assume the recipient has to respond but then what happens. It seems that any play for money off of a response would be so obvious that very, very few would go for it. About the same probability of someone giving an unknown Nigerian their bank account number without the possible reward.

I would assume no one on this board has responded to such an e-mail but maybe someone could enlighten me as to how it could be used.

If anyone replies, then they know the email is active - even if its a 'you have the wrong person' - hence why 'she' mentioned not being sure if 'she' had the right email.

Once you reply, they bombard you with something that will eventually cause you to bite.

I know of a guy who regularly responds to spam emails such as this, and leads the people on for comedic purpose.

I like how 'her' name changes.

Also, I removed the links from the text. Some of these link to malicious sites that attempt to install spyware/malware to your computer when you visit.

Thank you TE and Skeeve, oops DW Adams, I suppose I should have realized the possibilities on my own.

I use g-mail which is quite good at recognizing spam and moving it to a separate file which one can review and delete in mass which is what I usually do. I do have one problem with g-mail. Spam which gets through their filter has to be opened to be deleted. This makes me somewhat worried about things that are activated on opening an e-mail.

TE your friend who plays with spammers has more patience than I do, I hope he is at least selective with those spammers he responds to.

The guy isn't a friend. I know of a guy. Here's the link:

I have been tempted, but I would need to sign up for a new email and I can't be bothered.
