A new phishing email spam scam arrived in my inbox today from someone claiming to have Muammar Gaddafi's blood money, but no way to legally transfer it from Gaddafi's account to his. Now he needs my help moving the money and to show his gratitude he is willing to share it with me.

I don't even need to respond to his email to know that the next thing he will want is my bank account number and information so that he can access it to make a deposit. After I give him information I won't see a single penny of Gaddafi's money and he will take my money.

He says he is in Florida, but his IP address 120.140.114.142 is in Malaysia. Maybe that is why his English isn't so good.

WATCH OUT FOR EMAILS LIKE THIS ONE:

Dear Friend,
