    I also just received this email, and to a government email address at that.
    Has anyone gotten to the bottom of this problem?

    I received this email on 31March o8 and played along until Iwas sent an Invoice for delivery from White Arrow Express, Douglas, Isle of Man.
    Names and addresses are given. Surely the responsable people can be tracked down and held accountable.

    Seem to be statistically surveying our people's (and the MDs') genetic traits of gullibility and financial insatiability

    I admire their devotion to the trade they have chosen, these scammers!! They will try anything to get you interested in the scheme, esp. if you feign interest and play along. They got to be got!

    I just received one of these emails (July 8, 2008). Can't believe Microsoft hasn't gone after these low-life scammers.

    They got me today 6Jan, 09. Gee, and I played along with them, till I got the office - White Arrow Express, and called them and asked whether they are scammer, (i know its a silly Q, but anyway) and then I realise that this is way too far to be true. and these scammer return and ask me to deposit the delivery fees to them, and the account goes to personal account, Ms. Margery Everitt, also in Douglas, Isle of Man. Surprisingly not to a business bank account, White arrow Express bank or etc...
    Wonder why these people needs our details for...
