Well, lucky you. $2.5m - you can buy me a drink. :D

They just always give themselves away. Capital letters in the middle of sentences, United Nation and United State Government, "agents who has money" and "your provided information’s required " etc. etc. And, of course, the motto - No Body is Above the Law.

I particularly like "We guarantee you 100% safety and wish you the best of luck". You will certainly need it. :D

Must say, I'm always tempted, when I get one of these, to give them deliberately false information that will keep them busy for a few hours.
