Scam From "Steve Jobs"

Dear oh dear, the scam merchants really are scraping the bottom of  barrel these days.

I received this email today, purportedly from the executors of the late Steve "Job" (sic).

Aside form the obvious point that the late CEO of Apple was in fact called "Jobs" not "Job", why on earth does the scammer think that I would be stupid enough to believe that Jobs (who would have never heard of me) leave me any money?

Oh, and by the way, what is "Fourthy"?



On behalf of the Trustees and Executors of the late American Philanthropist Steve Job, chairman & CEO at Apple Inc. + Director at The Walt Disney Company. We wish to notify you once again that the late Steve Job. made you one of the beneficiaries to his (WILL), he bequeathed the sum of Four Million Great British Pounds Sterling Only GBP 4,000,000.00) to you in the codicil and last testament to his (WILL) which is eleven (10%) of his total funds of GBP 40,000,000.00 (Fourthy Million Great British Pounds Sterling.

This may sound very strange and unbelievable to you, but it is real and true. Being a widely popular traveled man, he must have been in contact with you in the past or simply you were nominated to him by one of his numerous friends here or abroad who wished you well. Late Steve Job, the reclusive American-born philanthropist born in San Francisco, California.USA.

According to him this money is to support religious and humanitarian activities and to help the poor and the needy in your society. Please if I reach you as I am hopeful, endeavor to get back to me as soon as possible to enable me conclude my job. I hope to hear from you in no distant time.
