Fraudsters try another trick

Well, virtually everyone around the work knows about the Nigerian Prince trick, or the displaced rich refugee trick of conmen. It is the butt of jokes of many people across the world. So, the conmen have had to keep trying new tricks hoping one will click.

I get loads of mails in my inbox and delete them on sight. But this one sent by some lazy idiot this morning is quite devilishly creative:

This is a personal email directed to you as one of the lucky recipients which we have voluntarily decided to donate the sum of 1 million pounds ($1.56 million) to as part of our own charity project to improve the lot of 5 unknown lucky individuals all over the world plus 15 close friends and family.I am Dave Dawes,I and my fiance won a Jackpot Lottery of 101 million pounds ($156 million) in October. Provide your NAME,ADDRESS and CONTACT NUMBER for claims. You can verify this by visiting the web pages below.

We anticipate your earliest response.

Best of luck,

Dave and Angela Dawes.
