    Subject: CRIME Hi all
    One of our customers has a story to tell.
    Apparently the "give me your bank account number and you will get the $"
    scam has gone one step further.
    Today, they received an email informing them that they had died. This
    email was sent to anyone w/ the same last name.
    They started receiving call from relatives.
    The email (which I do not have a copy of yet) said. So and so died. I am
    the executor of their estate. Please give me your bank acct. and the
    $40Mill will be dispersed ASAP.
    1.	Who can I report this to. 
    2.	Has anyone seen this one yet? 
    3.	What steps does my customer need to take. 
    I am aware that this is a spam. That it should be ignored. But I'm
    trying to stop all of their relatives from being cleaned out.
    Any thoughts?
