Fake Email Solicitation for Fund Transfer from Mahroo Rafi of France

First off, be wary of people addressing you as "Dear Friend" when you obviously do not know the person! Second off, read carefully its content and know that any huge amount of money involved for "distribution" and to share is bogus! You do not know the person, why would he/she offer you money for anything??

Third and so on, we can't stop these emails from coming into our inboxes no less as they always somehow manage a way to beat the filtering system of even the major free-webmail service like Yahoo, Hotmail and Google and the fraudulent emails wind up in our inboxes NOT spam/junk folders where it belongs! Caution is best. Be suspicious. Be vigilant. As we keep saying, "if it's too good to be true then darn it, it is!!"
