The “BBC Lottery” scam mails are in circulation once again, with the following missive appearing in mailboxes:
—–Original Message—– From: BBC ONE NATIONAL LOTTERY
Sent: Wednesday, February 16, 2011 12:05 PM
Subject: “Final Notification”
Contact (Mrs. Winifred Peterson) with your Payment processing form for
payment of £1,263,584.00 POUNDS which your email won in THE BBC ONE
PAYMENT PROCESSING FORM:
(1) FULL NAME:
(2) FULL ADDRESS:
(6) TELEPHONE NUMBER:
(8) COUNTRY OF RESIDENCE:
Mrs. Myleene Klass
Lottery Presenter General.
BBC One Lotto.
Apart from the fact that Myleene Klass is NOT going to send you a random email claiming you won lots and lots of money, “Mrs. Winifred Peterson” is a dead giveaway – appearing in many BBC Lottery scams time and time again. Of course, not actually playing the Lottery but winning anyway might also set some alarm bells ringing. Thanks to MrTom for sending this one over.
