I'm so unco-operative...

I received the following email in my junk folder yesterday. I am going to try to co-operate and fulfill my obligations so I can get my inheritance. When I do get it I will be happy to share with you. Just email me your SSN#, bank account number and any other incriminating evidence that might help you to get into trouble too.

Secondly, if you are one of those "non-officials" I am dealing with...woe be unto you if you hinder my inheritance.

LJW-well, I assume they DO get some responses from people, else they'd give up. But this one is rather out of the norm in that it borders on being threatening. Usually they are sugary sweet and have lots of "please help me"s and "God Bless you"s.
