Well, this is unique

Today I got internet spam that starts out, "DEAR INTERNET SCAM VICTIM"!!

Hmmm. Nothing like showing your hand right away. But it goes on to say:

"ATTN: Sir/Madam, How are you today? Hope all is well with you and family? You may not understand why this mail came to you. We have been having a meeting for the passed 7 months which ended 2 days ago with the then secretary to the UNITED NATIONS. This email is to all the people that have been scammed in any part of the world, the UNITED NATIONS have agreed to compensate them with the sum of US$ 850,000.00 each (Eight Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars).
This includes every foreign contractors that may have not received their contract sum, and people that have had an unfinished transaction or international businesses that failed due to Government problems etc. Your name and email was in the list submitted by our Monitoring Team of Economic and Financial Crime Commission observers and this is why we are contacting you, this have been agreed upon and have been signed..."
