Some internet biz scams

I got this email about a "free credit report". Yeah, it was free for 30 days and then they wanted 79.95/month to keep it going. Kind of steep don't you think.
Next are these emails that say "Congratulations, you won".
That means "congrats sucker, you won an opportunity to pay the sender of the email money". So be careful what you reply to.
From what I know, they can even tell if you've opened up a letter.
Of course, the best one is the "Nigerian business scam".
You get a letter from someone claiming to be the survivor of an
important banker, politician, etc and they want your account # so they can wire money to you.
If you believe in any of this stuff, I've got some property near the Booklyn Bridge you can buy off me real cheap. No, honestly I'm not kidding.
