Why oh Why Can't They Use Their Powers for Good? Bad Mr Lin, Bad Bad

Do you ever wonder if anyone really falls for this crap? Do you think someone opens tStop Reading This Stuffheir email, reads this and says "oh no!, I'm going to miss the chance to get almost $6million!" Then after reading through they immediately provide all that sensitive information?
If they do, then they have a dishonest streak running through the stupid streak. Except that their family would suffer, perhaps these individuals responding kinda sorta get what they deserve? 
 
This is what I got this morning...should I give my social security number too?

Good morning Mona. I think you may be missing a big opportunity here because if they called you the beneficiary, you must be. So personal. Merry Christmas.

I keep telling people that they do this on purpose.  They send out the most obvious scam.  They're not looking for the 99.9% of the people who will KNOW it's a scam.  They are looking for the 00.01% that won't.  It's called Phising for a reason.  They don't want to deal with you.  They want to deal with the real idiot.
