THIS is a first.

How to react? Jan 18, 2018

Deal with it as "spam" or "undesirable mail". Sometimes replying, even in the negative, can trigger something off.

How unpleasant Jan 18, 2018

I would do as Nikki suggests, and you've probably done yourself.

The other appropriate response would be to somehow find out all the personal details of this person and spread them all over the Internet. I loathe these schemes to make money without any thought for the potential inconvenience, and even damage, they're likely to cause to other individuals.

scam Jan 18, 2018

I haven't received that one. However I had a good chuckle the other day because I got something similar from an e-mail address with a domain name that was literally "scammer.com".
At least they're honest!icon_biggrin.gif
