Phishing Scam

About an hour ago or so, I received a contact message here on ActiveRain from someone named "Mr. Kona" that was one of those Nigerian-like phishing scams.  I copied the message below (below the line).  I was wondering whether anyone else here on ActiveRain also received this message or anything similar.  This is the second time in the past few months that I've received one of these messages.

Thanks!

I haven't seen an phishing scams since I've been on ActiveRain, although I have gotten a lot of sales pitches via eRealEstate.
