Ripped from the headlines spam...

Glad to see spammers are keeping up with the times... Got this variation on the famous Nigerian e-mail scam today:
Assalam-o-Alaikum
I got your email address through Islamic organisation directory over the Internet.
I hope in the name of ALLAH that I have the right person who will assist me.

I want to transfer money for investment into your country/business as such I would like to make contact with people like you residing in that country for assistance Note,the funds are already with a security company which also has branches in Asia, Europe and America for safe keeping. If you are willing to assist me.

This is all you will do for me,You will help me contact the security company for the release of the funds to you as my next of kin, as I cannot travel out from iraq at the moment because of certain conditions which I will explain to you if we work together(my travelling documents are not yet complete).

The fall of Saddam Hussein has brought destruction / Hell to our great country and everything is practically difficult now and opportuinities are closing up,the new government is trying to frustrate our businesses. ...
