not boring you with all the details at thistime, Which has already been
disseminated by the international media during the Controversial dispute
that erupted between her and her late husband Relatives concerning the
huge estate he left behind.

To save my time and yours I ask that you go to this link,

<snip>

As you will learn after going through the link above, all sorts of stories
Have been assumed concerning the huge sum of money she left behind. Some
Stories even say she left the bulk of her estate to me .But the truth is,
Although I am the sole custodian of a huge sum of her estate, she left
strict Instructions that I hand over the money to charity and also that
under no Circumstance should I let any of her late husbands relatives and
even her own Relatives lay their hands on the money. Contrary to media
reports, she made Sure her immediate family is well catered for since she
had no children of her Own,Before her death Nina Wang went ahead to
dispatch the sum of Eight hundred and Twenty Million British Pounds (820,
000,000.00 GBP) in cash with the assistance Of a foreign diplomat who now
resides in Europe, but I will ensure to make her Wish comes through.

Funds in the tune of $12,000,000.00 with the Hang Seng Bank China,and I
want Your assistance for me to transfer these funds in your name to your

I’ve really irritated by these kinda mails. Keep getting *atleast* 3-4 of these mails. So what’s the big deal you may ask? Well these aren’t going to the SPAM box. they’re landing straight to my Inbox. Despite it going through google apps and gmail. Are spams getting harder to be detected? OR are Gmail’s filters getting less stricter?  OR am I expecting too much from GMail? I suppose 2-3 spams from nearly 30(yup that’s the amount that comes to my spam box DAILY) isn’t such a bad ratio, after all.

The problem is that spam evolves with time as do filters, they made the filter parameters, the spammers found the loop hole, now the ball is back in mail providers’ court.

Actually if you come to think of it, it is pretty difficult to filter such mails, they don’t use any of the keywords that are generally associated with spam and don’t contain more than 1 link, so chances are that if they try to mark these mails as spam, they might end up having too many false positives and the non-spam mails will end up being marked spam.

Yeah, It’s always a cat-and-mouse game isn’t it?
