Nowdays, I don’t publish every single lottery scam I receive. It’s a sad fact, but this site would look way to boring if I did. These iScams just don’t have enough ingenuity and originality to be worth publishing.
But hey, I just have to pop the question: Who would even start thinking the below mail was legitimate when it is
- sent from a Hotmail address?
- sent to an undisclosed-recipients list?
- doesn’t know my name or email address?
Still… Some people seem to bite the bait.
