Everything is baitable. Cool

It's a lottery scam, so you'll be asked for upfront for fees via WU like just about all scams.
Reply from your baiting address. The lad won't notice.

And just tell him you weren't able to open the attachment. He must send the content in an email in plain text. I always seem to have problems opening attachments from lads. I use Linux and require them to convert attachments to all kinds of god-forsaken file formats. Cool

My favorite is telling them it has to be lzma compatible signed with a certified GPG key.

Normally, they just respond with plain text after that.. throws them off script. Smile

To answer your first question (Wink), it landed in your inbox because the scammers cleverly worded things so the spam filter didn't recognize it as spam. You can tighten the spam filter, I'm sure.

I have gotten a few, just report it as spam and you won't see much more of those scams.
