BMW Scam - Interesting 419 variation
We all get spammed with "news" of how we have won a lottery. The amount is usually obscene and is CAPITALISED IN CASE YOU CANNOT BELIEVE IT. It is often the story of someone who has died and left a bank account unclaimed. But lately, the scams are changing the story. I got this one from "BMW", which claims it has something to do with BMW and clean energy. I didn't know that Stamford, Lincolnshire was so close to London as the letterhead claims. So yes, of course, I will share my bank account details immediately. What a nice surprise!
