Patrick, I'm surprised at you! The web site displayed is almost
certainly not the scammer's web site but a web mail service similar to
Hotmail (well, actually, it looks like some kind of portal, but they
probably offer free e-mail.) Most of these scams use free web mail
services so the scammer doesn't have to operate their own, more
traceable, mail server. Surely had it been Hotmail, you would have
realized this and not suggested that it be targeted.
