    I received the following email today. It was so clumsy it just made me laugh. Whoever is sending this stuff out is really amateurish.

    A BMW Promotion Department with a Yahoo email address.... :twisted: [​IMG][​IMG]

    Ah yes, but it doesn't ask you for bank details... you may be passing up £450k (almost $5 zillion dollars at today's exchange rate)... I'd investigate further... :twisted::twisted:

    The address is false as is the post code.
    Probably want you to ring the number which will be charged at £££££ per minute.

    Suggest you contact BMW as they will take a dim view of their good name being used for a scam!!

    Incidentally - don't try and ring those phone numbers. They are 50ppm on a landline, and goodness knows what from a mobile.

    Hey, go right ahead. I have so much money now I don't know what to do with another approximately a $1,000,000 US. I'd probably have to finally open a savings account, and I sure wouldn't want to have to do that.... So, you would really be doing me a favor. :biggrin

    Nah. I took my Sarcasma today so I couldn't be possibly be having a sarcasm attack.... I might be being just a tad facetious, but even that's debatable. :biggrin
