Pathetic scam attempt

Yeah, I know,... there are a lot of scams going around, fortunately, I am not normally targetted, and so when I do get one, it is "something of note" so to speak  ! ! ! ...

 

Recently, I posted, what I thought was a quite "sophisticated" scam attempt of a spoof PayPal... but this one goes to the opposite extreme.....

 

The "subject matter" was      " We need your help"  

 

and it was from... amazon-update-id541618@applevps.247-hosting.com

Re: Pathetic scam attempt

Most of us have seen this kinda thing repeatedly over the years.

Why the hell people continue to fall for it is beyond me.

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

I've been asked if the Nokia 3310 I was selling has 3G so it's not a mystery to me.
