the Jane Taylor Email Scam

I have received emails like this before, and if it's your first time to receive such emails, you may probably think they're real. Unfortunately, they're not. And fortunately, we have the internet now, where we can try to track down if there are similar emails that have circulated before... Here is the email I received recently, which, good enough, went straight to my spam folder.
