Seriously, now...who falls for this?

I must get an e-mail similar to the one below at least 4 times a week. Seriously, now...who falls for this stuff? Obviously many people do if thousands of cretins continuously spam this crap.

Oh, and by the way...
  • You did not overpay the IRS $186.30
  • Neither Steve Jobs nor Bill Gates is going to send you a check for $100 for passing on an e-mail
  • Your friend or relative most likely did not get robbed in London and does not need an emergency loan of $1,000 wired to the account included in the e-mail
  • You did not win the Irish Sweepstakes
Enjoy your day...and remember the adage: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't.
