Now this wouldn’t be some kind of rip off spam would it?

You’ve won the sum of NINE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND POUND
(£950,000.00) from the UK GOLF INTERNET emails Lottery Edition 2010

TO RECEIVE AND CLAIM YOUR PAYMENT OF PRIZE

The English seems a bit shaky.

You are therefore advised to send the following information to our claims agent(Mr.Piland woods) to facilitate the remittance of your winning prize to you at once from the UK GOLF INTERNET EMAILS LOTTERY.

They want the kind of information that scammers usually want:

1. Full name…………
2. Country…………..
3. Contact Address……..
4. Telephone Number…….
5. Marital Status………
6. Occupation………….
7. Company…………..
8. Age………………..

They don’t really have a company Internet presence. Their “site” is a LinkedIn account.

They are “fully special” and they “glob round the world” – yea, that sounds REAL legitimate.
