    Today's effort was sent to an address hacked from NTFSUndel software website. Now has Ramaphosa as President, and offers US$5,000,000.

    Apparently sent via a mailserver in Japan bousai-uchiko.jp [], with reply-to antifrauunit-za@webmail.co.za.

    Quite tempting to give them the address of the Fraud Squad as contact.
