   I received the following email recently.  Looks too good to be true!  $1.5Million united state dollars!  Maybe I should reply? :-)

   The only thing missing is a link or attachment.

   Of course, there are tons of emails like this around.  And people do respond.

   Would you respond?  How many people at your workplace would respond?  How would you help people recognize this kind of email and not respond?
