Cheeky beggars.

Trying to scam people with an e-mail saying they are compensating you for a scam.

It's a new variation of the old 419 scams.

Scam? I doubt it! ;)

Turvey, please PM me the email address of the UN officer, as I feel I am due compensation as well!

Yeehaw! Soon I will be putting a deposit on a new Mustang :D
