This e-mail is identical to the Global Sweepstakes Lucky Day Annual Lottery Promotions example, both e-mails come from a Netscape account, they both contain horrible spelling and grammar and they both refer to some Dr. and Mrs. (people that probably doesn't exist). How can they suspect a response to a piece of garbage like this? If this e-mail was really important, they would have taken the time to format it properly.
