Does it actually say "*dead person*", or are you trying to protect the name of the person they made up?
#3
it's meant to catch your attention. Of course it's spam, the telephone/fax numbers are mobile numbers, what sort of company would have mobiles as their main numbers?
You're using UG classic, congratulations.
You should be using UG classic.

I had a few of those. I even got an email saying that my mother was extremely ill from someone I didn't know.

I went upstairs to check and she was fine.

This is pointless, nobody needs to know about your spam mail, everyone gets them all the time.

Wait.
