Here’s another in our series of stupid, but actual, emails we’ve received from folks trying to scam us out of money.

Make sure you keep a list of the trusted people you deal with online when it comes to your finances. Never open attachments you’re not expecting or are not sure of.

That said, this one caught our eye because the name of the sender is the same as one of the noted members of the long-running comedy series Monty Python. We did not know Terry Gilliam was in the business of sending people money. What’s next? An email from John Cleese next week?

Read and enjoy. Stupid idiots.
