I got this spam email forwarded to me from one of my friends who himself is working for a software company. The mail goes like this.

Dear Reader,

I am writing this behalf of my loving husband.

Everything was fine, me, my husband and our two children. We had ahappy family. My husband was an Engineer in a big company. He comes homeearly and helps me with the house chores and plays with the children.

Our dreams was shattered in front of our eyes last week. It was adrunk lorry driver, came on the wrong side and hit us and went.

It killed my little baby girl and left my husband paralyed. My husbandis still in the hospital. His brain is damaged and he needs a operation. Ineed 5 lahks to save his life. I collected about 3 lahks from my friends andfamily. I need another 2 lahks.

I don't want to lose him. He was such a wonderful husband & father. Hestill doesn't know we lost our little girl. I am looking after my son now.Without my husband I won't be able to takecare of him.

Please help me save my husband the one person I dearly love. I alreadylost my daughter and I don't want to lose my husband as well. Please helpus.

Thank you very much for your love & support. May God bless you.

(I know you don't like to forward mails. I am really sorry to botheryou. If you have a heart and like to help a family, please forward thismail. Every mail you forward will add 5cents to AOL and they will deposit itto my bank account. Which will help me save my husband.)

Points to be noted here.

1.) In the subject the Mail Server itself shows that its a SPAM
2.) The Content
3.) IT states "Every mail you forward will add 5cents to AOL", Here note that there is no Track Back url.
4.) If any service provider wants to pay for this kind of activities they might get a small space for donation in their website.

Note: If you are going to make a donation online, see if that the website is a legitimate one. Also you might have noted and experienced as well that you would get money if you forward this mail to 100 people etc and so on. So inorder to do this the SPAMMERS they use the reputed companies name like Microsoft Corporation, AOL and so on. Also sometimes it comes with some attachments which might be a virus file.

Though there are Spam Blockers installed in the system, people anyway manage to get thest kinds of email and forward it to their friends in their contact list.

So it is in the hands of us, not to encourage these kinds of emails.
