    Funny Scam

    I'm posting this mail on Entertainment section and also with a title as Funny scam because I just lol'd and felt that it is too stupid trying to cheat someone with this kinda mail. If someone falls prey even for such mail, he has to be dumb.

    Here is the mail

    We are pleased to inform you that you have been Awarded the sum of
    950,000.00 GBP in the Mercedez Benz 2010 Program. Send your
    Names:............
    Address:..........
    The mail comes from [email protected]



    Look at the way the message has been framed, only a kid would believe it.



    If those who framed the mail expect people to get fooled fir the mail. Damn, they need some brain.

    I totally agree with you. The mail is kinda retarded with no information at all, but I don't know what they earn in to know their "victims" adress and name? What are they going to do with that? Send a bill maybe, but on what? It would be better to ask for their credit card number to put in this large ammount on.
    Probobly It's a kid who is trying to learn about all this with email spam and made this one for a example or test.

    Would be better if they puted all the facts you need to "get" the money in same letter. Alot easier as well. Then they don't need to respond the victims when they are answering. It's just to make an bot witch sending all theese e-mails and just look in the inbox. Then all the emails in the inbox would be enougth to scam them.
    P.S, It would make more sence if they had to give the credit card number to put the price money on instead of knowing where they live. In good letter they also have a discription why just YOU, a specify human got this incredible oppotunity and luck.
