Email Scams - Will It Ever End?

I wonder if it will ever end?  The one million dollars you can get by sending a mere $1,000 dollars to some poor soul in Nigeria.  I must be a very popular person over there since so many people want to send me money! Then all of the sudden I am also qualified for all this great loands if I just pay up front.  Who knew money was so easy to come by? I thought I would include a recent email I got ( I particularly enjoy the gmail part of it) that I put below.  How lucky am I!
