Never got an e-mail from an ambulance chaser, before? Good. But just so that you know, here's one example I got from one trying to solicit me to work for them. They're actually pretty rare. You probably won't get something like this unless you run a scanning web page, and you're, thus, fairly easy for them to find. In the 7 years that I've been on the web, I've only received perhaps three e-mails like this in all that time. I lost two of those e-mails. This is the only one left that I could find in my files.

I promptly reported this guy...
