I fell off my chair when I received an email starting:

I am the credit manager in a bank here in the United Kingdom...>>

Now I know he lives in the UK and has banked a lot of fees <LOL> but it CAN'T be the same one, could it?!
Reading on, it looks like one of the Nigerian scams..deceased relatives, unclaimed inheritance etc.

Amusing coincidence though. I'll take a bit more notice when I get one "From the desk of Yuri Gagarin."

I recieved that same spam earlier today and for a brief moment thought it might be from the one and only, David Randolph Scott! Then I opened it!

During a particularly bad bout of e-mail virus of the sort that searches your address book and sends out e-mails from addresses it finds there, someone at NASA or in frequent contact with the agency apparently became infected, because I was getting a lot of virus spam from addresses.

Among them were several very inappropriate messages "from" Peggy Whitson.

Famous names- in all- I just delete them.
Asking to buy this and that- SPAM, SPAM, SPAM. [The olny good thing- their tins of meat- very tasty.ha ha;

Yes, I too, received an email from "David R Scott" today. It landed in my bulk mail folder so I just deleted it. Mine had a file attachment, too. I just figured the name was a coincidence - there must be a lot of people with the name David R Scott - but it certainly got my attention for a moment.

I fell for it, too. At least enough to take a look. I'll have Spam and eggs and Spam, Spam, Spam.

No, WAIT!!! Let's not get started on that again!

I received it too, this evening.

His e-mail addy got my attention - tiscali is affiliated to 12move, the provider I am a client of.

Tend to frequently get spam mail from that tiscali provider in the UK - maybe another Trojan Horse ???

Even received it twice ...

All the best,
