Has anyone else received email similar to this? I haven't got the headers
yet because this was forwarded to me by management. megasuccess.net isn't 
listed in InterNIC but there are similar domain names. I don't want to
contact or complain about the wrong organization or people. Replies to
me only by email, unless this is some massive UCE campaign, please.

Maybe they have already been shutdown by their provider?
