Forget it.

Just erase the mail and move on w/ your life, you're never tracing the source of a spam mail, and neither is any investigative agency. If you go lodge a complaint on junk mail, you'll just be lol'd at by the police.

Just delete it and forget about it. this mail has origionated somewhere in Nigeria and no Indian legal authrority can do anything about it, because the origion of the mail does not come under Indian territory. I am receiving, on an average, 5 mails every day. i just send them to trash and forget.

Please just ignore all these scams. I had carried out some investigations and found out that these are simple bluff. Still even educated people fall for such mails and finally end up crying from the top of their house.

It is a scame. Recently RRBI,Mumbai has issued a warning to general public on this. The sender of the email entyce you and amke you to send some good amount say about 5 lakhs..down to 5000 Rs towards the cost of processing, couriers and sundries. After getting the money they will go into cybernation.
In some cases they get your bank detais and withdraaw money from your A/c without your knowledge. Please avoid such emails. My daughter lost Rs 43000 in this way but nobody is able to help us.
Beware.
