I think it is appalling, how many of these scammers latch on to the idea we were all born yesterday! I tend to get hundreds of this type of email, and Mr Benrichards name rings a bell, although I cannot be certain, as I delete so many. I recently had a very convincing plea, to help a Nigerian doctor ( funny how so many of them are doctors!) he was desperate to get his children back from china, where he had sent them in the post, by mistake. In the post? they must be very malnourished! Anyway, he only needed me to send him 150 Dollars, and when he got his children back he would pay me back 5,000 dollars to show his gratitude!, Absolutely amazing, they expect us to believe it.
