I got a letter from Spain, it's pretty well worded and I can see a fair amount of people falling for it.

My dad received it in the mail, full Spanish stamps and all (I doubt it's not from Spain). It has his full name which they probably got from the internet from his old work website or hacked it from some 3rd party.

It basically says some unknown relative died (Newman YOURLASTNAME) and is leaving you millions.

I am pretty pissed off by the audacity of this, and was wondering what are the options for scam baiting. Luckily my dad just laughed it off but others may not be so luckily. Could you email them with a fake name, say you got their letter and scam bait them the regular way or is this a whole different kettle of fish?

If anyone is interested in scam baiting the email address provided (or even the phone number) or more details let me know.
