Hmmm..
I hope they have reserved a special corner in a certain warm place for spammers/scammers like that..
A lot of similar mails were sent just after the Tsunami tragedy as well,
and the Nigerian Scams are already well known to most people.
But if 1 of 1,000,000 replies and falls for that scam, it's a pretty good income fot the scammers since they usually send out the same mail to many millions...

I get at least 3-5 mails like that every week.
It's actually quite amusing to read them..
