seriously?

Do people seriously think that we'll fall for scam emails like this:

Dear Friend,
Good day,Im Princess Chantal S.Yonli,the only daughter of Late, Mr/Mrs Yonli S.Kamara, a licensed solid mineral (gold, diamond,cocoa marchant Importer&Exporter) during his days, resently before my father passed away,he called me privately that he had a deposit valued ($4.5 million)and a deposit of 350 kilos,(22 Carat) ALLUVIAL GOLD DUST which he intended to move abroad for investment on my behalf.
Please get back to me so that i can tell you why i contacted you in this regards. I will be waiting for your response.
Thanks,

Princess Chantal.

I end up reading these just because I find them highly amusing. I especially love it when the English is just plain bad. They often don't do their homework when translating their scams, which consequently a dead give away. This one is a little better. I love the mystery. "contact me so I can tell you why I contacted you" OOooooo. Maybe I'm the lost heir of mer Late Yonli Kamara. Maybe I was actually adopted and I never knew it. How did this ever get in my spam folder, its important stuff!!! lol
