"The amount of money Americans lost to Internet-based scams and fraud soared to $559.7 million last year, more than double the figure for 2008, according to a new report.

    I was able to receive this kind of scam email as well. Another notorious email scam is an emai from Paypal. I believe it's still circulating up to this moment.
