So, all out of the blue the 419 scammers want to give you money because of the global economic crisis? Get real, they are just going to steal some more.
So what is this, a lottery or a charity fund? There is a reason why they only gave you 4 digits, they don't have the rest and the first four is fake anyway. They only want a reason for you to contact them.
This is interesting. This e-mail came from a South African ISP, but the telephone number you need to dial is in the UK. So this spam was either sent from a malware infected computer, or 419 scammers in South Africa is helping their friends in the UK to distribute this spam.
Even the reply to e-mail address is UK based. 9.cn is an organisation that provides email addresses powered by Windows Live Hotmail and 9.cn e-mail addresses seem to be popular among 419 scammers these days.
