Email scams aren't just from Nigeria

They used to be called "Letters from Nigeria", but it's not such a good name these days. Because they can come from any corner of the world, in a multitude of languages. Many of us are all too familiar with the emails we can receive out of the blue, suggesting that a fortune is within our grasp. Unfortunately, just as there's no such thing as a free lunch, there's also plenty of scammers out there waiting to take advantage of you with fake lotteries and false inheritances.
