    I got an e-mail that read like this:
    Justin Reed wants you to join Yaari!

    Is Justin your friend?

    Yes, Justin is my friend! No, Justin isn't my friend.

    Please respond or Justin may think you said no :(

    Thanks,
    The Yaari Team

    I always google before looking at anything sent from anyone unknown, and some from people I do know. It turns out Yaari is nothing more than a phishing site, so beware and do not click the links in mails like this. Here is one of the links that came up on the first page of google:
    Miles to go ...: Boycott yaari.com - "Spam 2.0"

    By the way, I got three of these in rapid succession, so someone I know got duped.:evil:

    That's what I did as well. Deleted the mails and clicked nothing in the body of the e-mail. I have no idea who Justin Reed is anyway, so I figured it was junk mail.

    I know the feeling. In the past week I won 2 million euros from a lottery
    in The Netherlands, and I won an Australian lottery for over 2.5 mil.. Then
    there's the engineer in Botswanna, David Cheeseman, who, with his family
    was killed in a plane crash and...... you guessed it, I'm his only heir. He's
    got 15 mil squirreled away. Oh, the pain ! What am I going to do with all
    this money ?

    Charles, is Cheeseman a common name in Botswanna;) Can I be your friend as well, you seem to be pretty lucky winning all those lotteries, maybe some of you luck will rub off.
