The best scam email of all time

That's a bold statement to make, but you have to admire the genius of a scam "cleverly" disguised as a compensation program for scam victims. What was the old saying about "Fool me once..."? I particularly like the professional-sounding "We shall feed with you more modalities..." phrase, as well as the fact that the email address for correspondence is in, of course, the yahoo.com.hk domain. Keep trying guys, at least the entertainment value is continually rising.
