    Rhetorical question, right? I didn't click them but can tell you they were scams or a vindictive soon to be ex-spouse. The scammer will tell you they've been transferred to London and will use some outfit like USX or something to complete the transaction and get the goods to you. I messed with one of them once, telling him my parents had taken me when I was 9 years old, a few decades ago. I talked about enjoying the Trevi Fountain across the street from Buckingham Palace when we watched the changing of the guard. He said he like that too (and didn't tell me the fountain isn't in front of the palace since it's in Italy). Then I told him my best friend is a petroleum engineer and goes to London every 4 weeks so I'd have him bring the cash and pick up the gear. Never got another email after that one.
