Fake/Spam letters taking foreign scripts path to look genuine

Recently, I have been getting emails written in different scripts on diversified topics like Money transfer, dead millionaire and one even of a marriage proposal. No doubt all of them are scam. Please don't sic for proposal one too. Each such emails aim at making a fool of you. And, to attract you into a trap where you can shell out some hard earned bucks.

See an example below:
السلام عليك 
انا اسمي مدام / ملك الشايب ارملة من سوريا دمشق , لقد ولدت في اسرة مسيحية قبل ان اتزوج من رجل مسلم متدين ساعدني في ان اعتنق الاسلام والحمد لله على هذه النعمه الكبيره.

انا سيدة مسلمة تعمل بجهد في مجال الذهب ومستحضرات التجميل في دمشق سوريا , وزوجي يعمل في مجال الاستثمار العقاري وهو مهندس ولقد انشاء شركته الخاصة للاستثمار العقاري قبل ان يلقي حتفه بعد صراع مع المرض باحدى مستشفيات القاهره.

لقد تم انقازي بواسطة الامم المتحدة المفوضية السامية لحماية اللاجئين  UNHCR)) ديسمبر2013الي ميامي فلوريدا بالولايات المتحدة الامريكية , لان افراد عائلتي كانوا يريدون قتلي لاني اعتنقت الاسلام , كل الذي احتاجه اخ مسلم يخاف الله استطيع ان اثق به امام الله ليساعدني باستعادة بعض المتعلقات الخاصة بالاسرة التي امنها زوجي الراحل قبل وفاته في مصر .

ولهذا ارجوك اخي في الله ان ترسل لي رقم الهاتف الخاص بك لكي نتواصل ونتعارف قبل ان اعطيك المزيد من التفاصيل .

مع خالص الشكر
مدام / ملك الشايب

Using PS command to get Time a Process runs (etime) On Mac Unix etc

Its a simple command but very useful.

To see the results for a single process,  just add a grep at the end for the process' name. For example:

$ ps -ax -o etime,command -c | grep AnwarApp

Please note above that AnwarApp is nothing but your Process name.
You shall get a detailed running time information of this process the.

Result:
08-02:10:05 AnwarApp

This means that on my Mac, the AnwarApp has been running for eight days, two hours, ten minutes, and 5 seconds. 

I believe you got your work done.
So, cheers!!
