EMail Scam—NOT a Book

At the risk of losing out on a million dollars, I had to share this gem that arrived in my eMail today. (Just in case, I have removed the critical reference numbers [grin].) I guess this person working for "William Henry Gates III and His Giant" is exempt from using even the rudimentary tools for spell- and grammer-checking built into Microsoft applications.
