ID thieves brew up Coke spam scam


Security experts have published details of a newly discovered email-based fraud that tries to ensnare recipients with a bogus notification purporting to be a lottery win from Coca-Cola.

The emails, which have the subject line 'Coca Cola Promotion', have been spammed out to internet users claiming that the recipient has won $2.5m in a lottery held by the soft drinks firm earlier this month.

The recipient is told that they are one of 50 lucky winners around the world selected randomly after computers found their email address on internet websites. ID thieves brew up Coke spam scam - vnunet.com
