Just received an SMS advising me that I was the winner of a “£1750000 in a prize draw”, that is not bad considering I do not live in the UK. Being the suspicious person that I am, I did some searching on the Internet and found this: Coke Promo Scam.
I was reading up on these type of scams and was amazed at how successful they are, we are talking about people giving millions of dollars to these low-life scum. The thing that I cannot understand is how anyone can fall for this? The scum ask for your personal details and then ask for money to pay fees and taxes – the first thing that would come to my mind would be “Pay the fees and taxes from the winnings”. It just so happens that just a couple of days ago there was story on TV about an old man who had been conned out of $50,000 by a similar scheme and he still would not believe that he had been conned.
