Mass spam uses BMW to dupe users


Spammers are using the lure of a BMW car to trap users into falling for their latest scam, security firm Sophos has warned.

The spam emails state that the recipient has won a BMW lottery and is entitled to 950,000 and a brand new BMW 5 Series car.

The bogus message advises recipients to contact the 'claims department' and includes a fake corporate address, email address and telephone number to enhance the legitimacy of the ploy. Mass spam uses BMW to dupe users - vnunet.com
