Default OT--Anyone else received this spam-scam?

I think the worst part about spam in my inbox is that virtually all of it is
boring, repetitive and completely lame. I mean, does anyone *really* fall
for that "I'm an important person from Nigeria and need your help to smuggle
money out of the country" crap that keeps showing up?

But today's contribution is a (small) step above most others: it actually
*almost* looks legit if one isn't paying attention. Of course, the fact
that I got three copies in a row kinda indicated "scam" :-)

So here it is--the latest (for me) spam-scam:

"User just send $974.50 USD with E-mail to you:
