One of the reasons we like Gmail

This e-mail just came in. See the notice at the top of it? That's one of the reasons we like Gmail. No, we're not trying to sell you anything, but as a general rule, those of us who are, shall we say, under-teched, and don't always remember to update our anti-virus, etc., we get some protection from our e-mail service provider. In any case, it's an interesting scam: One Adam George, supposedly out of a Lagos, Nigeria (a haven for scammers, indeed) pharmacy -whom we've never heard of, ever- wants to order a whole lot of medication from us, who are not in the pharmaceuticals business at all, at all. We're going to fall for it, are we? Many do, that's why they keep trying ... But Gmail tells us not to provide any personal information. Thanks, Gmail, and Adam George, go fry!
