I received this email last night, and it's obviously a scheme. I spoke with someone else (not a member of Treasure Classifieds) and they too received almost the exact same message a few weeks back. It's painfully obvious from the writing & structure of the email that this is a blatant scam...stay away!!! Below is the EXACT message I received...

I have been subject to certain types of scams in the past via email.  the best thing that I have been told ( by the authorities)is to contact the authorities of that originators country and let them try to do their job.  The powers that be in England don't take kindly to scams. as of 15 yrs ago they had an entire department devoted to scammers.

just fororward the entire document to the english authorities ( you will have to Google their addy).

Located in Durham region Ontario.  Always looking for local md'rs to hunt with.
