    Hi All

    watch out for this one, claiming to be, but not from Pay Pal, not run it to find out what it does... I'll leave that for some one more suicidal

    I look for poor punctuation, sentence structure, and spelling errors in these messages. You can usually tell they aren't legit by the way they're written.

    "...in next five business days" should really be "...in the next five business days" to be correct.
