I never thought that I would be mentioning Michael Jackson’s name in a scam blog, but I guess this just proves that the scammers will stop at nothing and will use anything they think will get people’s attention. I found the following email in my spam folder the other day.

I cannot believe it! I never even when to one of his concerts . . . I did purchase the Thriller album . . . but out of all of the people in the world to pick from, Michael Jackson picked ME to a beneficiary to his will.

I guess this means that I need to add a new section to our message board for Dead Celebrity Scams.
