[Sca-cooks] Awful Trip...Marcus Loidolt

I'm sorry, you've just hurt some poor scammer's ego.  I'm sure he was 
feeling clever using an email address with an extra "r" tucked in the name 
on the address, but Marcus doesn't spell his name "loidorlt".

In any event, the message is a rip-off of a variant on the Spanish Prisoner 
con that's been on the net for over two years.  The original message I saw 
was for London rather than Madrid, but the opening is almost a word for word 
crib of that letter.  Unimaginative and unoriginal criminality, 
unfortunately, the scammer probably won't get his desserts.  Couldn't they 
at least be entertaining?
