I got this in my e-mail last weekend. While I have to assume that most internet users are savy enough to realize that this is utter bullshit, I am sure that there are some folks that will fall for it. Even though it has no logos or graphics, or even good grammer.
I am still waiting for the 3.5 million dollars from the Nigerian bank account that I sent my social security number to.......so I sort of doubt that 'Google' is telling the truth here. (my comments in blue)
