Here's an email I found in my spam box from 2 days ago. The email addresses associated with this email are firstname.lastname@example.org and a reply-to address of email@example.com. This is a typical lottery scam email aka 419 scam. If you reply to this they will tell you in order to get the money you must wire "taxes" or "fees" to someone via western union. Once they get your money they will keep asking for more and more until your completely broke. Then they will move onto the next victim.
