starbucks and the marines

There is an email doing the rounds about starbucks and the marines. It is completely untrue and if you get such an email - bin it do not forward it on.  You are free of course to forward my message to everybody in your address book so we can kill this one off.

Also, look out for a mail from a Nigerian prince. It turns out that he doesn't really have a lot of money and it's a scam. Feel free to pass this on to 10 people within 10 minutes and you will be lucky in love within 3 days. Your lucky number is 4 and your lucky sealife is the urchin.

Guess if the Nigerian prince hasn't got a lot of money we won't find him in Starbucks Wink

They don't seem to worry or they would have done something about it.  I've never used WU but I understand the reason they are used by all the con artists is because money can be transferred anonymously, making it impossible to follow any audit trail.
