    I rec'd this one today. I'm just including the 'hook' here...

    You should note that, if we do not hear from you, we automatically assume that you
    are actually dead and the information passed to us by Mrs. Cynthia Edward is
    correct. Hence, you are hereby requested to reply [to] this Email immediately....

    WOW! I sure do HOPE it's SPAM....

    Because I am not answering.

    AND I am not dead. I know because I took this photo today!

    Blessed be!
