I didn't get this but the number of spam e-mails I get with my Gmail account has climbed rapidly in recent months. About my car being towed away, Obama care, Walmart (I am in the UK), exotic ladies, etc! I get fed up having to delete this carp!

well - - you get the same stuff, here in AU
& the assumption of all of that crap - is that you reside in the USA.
- you delete it, as it's not relevant.

Indeed, it does sound a bit fishy to me, also.
