The "kelly Konan" scammer is up to his/her old tricks again, as this letter is repeatedly doing the rounds.
Sad to say, there are some people who fall for this.
Quite why that "kelly" does not use a capital letter for her first name, and the dupes who fall for this don't spot that obvious point, is beyond me.
