most of these scams prey on social behavior : in this case what some people
call the 3 'ta's = wanita, harta, takhta

in this case, the email is
1. 'sent' by an alluringly named female (wanita)
2. 'claims' to someone in authority (takhta)
3. 'promises' the reader 'wealth' (harta)

it works like a charm to those middle aged people (in their late 30s and
early 40s) who feels they are 'stuck' married with a fat spouse and
screaming kids. working for a 'heartless' boss, with credit card debts
creating a noose around their necks (keliling pinggang).

maybe someone on this list can create an algorithm based on these 3 'ta's ;p
