as most folks with an e-mail account often do, I get plenty of SPAM/scam e-mails. But this is the best one I received so far. Basically, the e-mail is telling me that I should receive compensation from scam e-mails. I know there are some dumb people in this world, but if anyone actually responds to them and gets scammed out of their money, I have zero sympathy for them - as the saying goes... "A fool and his money will soon part".
I highlighted the best parts:
