I HAVE RECEIVED THE SAME

I HAVE RECEIVED THE SAME EMAIL FROM A JULIA GEORGE IN AFRICA, STATING THE EXACT SAME INFO AS THE REST. I WANT THIS PERSON CAUGHT AND WILL GO TO EXTREME MEASURES TO DO SO. A TEAM EFFORT WILL INCREASE THE CHANCES. THE EMAIL ADDRESS THIS CAME FROM WAS julia_g4real2000@yahoo.com. IF THE URL INFO CAN BE TRACKED DOWN IT SHOULD PINPOINT THE LOCATION OF THE SCAM ARTIST. PLEASE HELP ALL WHO HAVE BEEN SUBJECTED TO THIS SCAM. THANK YOU
