I was listening to the "Clark Howard" show yesterday and he warned about the scams. Part of his warning was "don't engage in any e-mail discussions with them because some have gotten so sophisticated that they can embed worms in your computer to capture your keystrokes and get a lot of your personal information". I don't know if he is correct but I wouldn't chance it.

From Nadia Arafat 202, Kamel El Shennawi street, Garden City, Cairo, Egypt.
In The Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful Aselamu Aleikum.
Forgive my indignation to contact you through this medium without prior notice. I am Mrs Nadia Arafat, the wife of late Fathi Arafat brother to Yasser Arafat) who just died on Wednesday 1st December, 2004. In military hosptal cairo egypt.
It did not take more than 48hours after his demise when I was contacted by his security firm in Asia as his next of kin. Before his death, he entrusted many documents to me and told me to let things be since he knew that he would die considering his cancer ailment. One of those documents bore certificate of deposit from the said security firm that contacted me in London.
Hence I`m requested to correspond with them in the shortest possible time to avoid the demurrages that will accrue following the death of my husband as nobody except me can attend to such transaction. Thus I`m contacting you so that you can help me to retrieve this clasified deposit from the security firm and for safe keeping pending when it will be convienient for me to travel out of Egypt. All eyes are on me now and as such I will not like to attract any attention now either by monetary transactions or by international travel.
As a result, I request you to reply to me as soon as ossible so that we shall know the way forward and how to streamline issues and procedures towards the successful retrieval of this clasified deposit which bear the sum of US$ 25.5 Million, I`m quite convinced that this classified deposit is enough for any investment of ones choice in a life`s time.
Endeavour to keep this mail very secret even if you are not keen to cooperate with me as I beseeched you.
