I recently found this in my spam folder. The sending email address is a French domain, with a male-sounding name. The purported sender, a well known Australian mining magnate, is currently embroiled in a legal battle with her own children over the family fortune, and not, I understand, of a particularly philanthropic nature.
"My Dear Beloved Greetings to you my Dear Beloved, my name is Mrs. Gxxx Hxxx Rxxxxxxx, a great citizen of Australia,born in Perth, Western Australia,I have a mission for you worth ($200,000,000.00) Two Hundred Million Dollars which I intend to use for CHARITY.Pls reply if intrested God Bless You.

Yeah, right... Please try harder, Mr Spammer.
