I periodically check my spam folder for errant emails that shouldn’t be there. Sometimes I find things like this:
“I believe we spoke a couple months ago about what you could do with a few hundred thousand extra in your back pocket.”
I’m sure I would remember speaking with someone about a few hundred thousand dollars, but just in case I don’t, maybe I should email him back. Just like with lots of scams, not many people need to respond for him to make some money.
