Spam scam mail of the day


Received today. Apparently, this nice mister Benny Tao wants to sell me 22.4 Karat gold at U$19,000/kg. That's U$590.90 an ounce, so subtracting the 6.66% difference of this stuff to normal spot gold quality, at today's spot price of U$1,100 that nice mister Benny Tao is offering us all a discount of U$436/oz on an ounce of gold.

What could possibly go wrong?
