    LMAO....

    Let's see, a German auto manufacturer holds an unnanounced drawing in Spain to award a cash prize in British pounds Sterling, the whole thing administered by an American-sounding bloke working for eBay who has a Chinese email address (gray.richard@msnzone.cn) and a UK telephone number (that's one damn big desk). Nope, nothing there to raise any eyebrows, not even any speling or grammars errors--this must be the real thing!

    Damn your luck CR, I'm jealous, that is one SWEET ride. :D

    Wow CR, that reminds me of the $45,000,000 I inherited from my rich and famous dead great uncle twice removed! Still waiting on that check though...

    Ignore the scams!

    I recognize these schemes for what they are. :eek:

    I'm just waiting for my real parents to show up with the keys to the family vault!

    And they'd better get a move on!!:D

    What blows my mind is that these emails are still around. Which means... somebody is falling for them or the senders would have moved on to the next scam.

    There are even Newegg bogus invoice charge e-mails being sent daily where people get duped into providing their c/c details and personal info. so their c/c and bank acct. can be drained in less than 30 seconds...

    P.T. Barnum knew nothing about the Internet but he was right about a sucker being born every second - except it's a million suckers per second on the Net. :(

    Well, the only emails I get like that are all trying to sell me male "enhancement" medications.

    What I'm trying to get a handle on is how they found out....

    I doubt the senders do much cost/benefit analysis or study yield performance data. I envision some poor unemployed 20-something in some small Nigerian town with nothing to do but spend his days at the local Internet Café spamming away dreaming of "the big catch".

    No; it has already occurred, so, if you haven't had a phone call or email, you didn't win.
