OT Wow I just won a BMW! (NOT)

Just got this email....

Aren't I a very lucky boy ?

Suppose I can cancel my E90 320d order,although I'll lose my deposit

Wonder who's behind this racket,are people still taken in by these ?

What it's not a scam!! Oh *uck!!!!

I've just e-mailed them all my NR account details along with all the required PIN numbers.

Fortunately I forgot about all my offshore accounts, so the 56.5 million in the Cayman Islands will be ok.

The 2.7 million in Northern Rock is just pocket money!

but dum shmucks have used gmail.
what dodos


just like those spanish phone calls, " Sir you have just a won a share in the spanish lottery!" we need to get your bank details to transfer the money but before we do that we need about 5,500 for admin purposes...

you know the rest..
