LOL, I love how they think anyone would believe BMW would be using a GMAIL/HOTMAIL account for their contests.

Dude this looks legit!

You better send in all your info. I think they also need your social security #, Driver's License, and account # to all of your bank accounts along with a signed and dated blank check.

I used to fuck with these people all the time, its called scam baiting. It is actually a lot of fun and a great cause. The more you waste their time the less of a chance the get some old person to send along their information. If you are interested in doing this send me a PM and I will give you a site that will tell you everything you need to do to mess with them and have some fun.

I just sent this fellow an email

"Hi, my name is Jay Goodwill. My friend asked that I help to claim his
prize from him, and I would be glad to do so. He is giving me 10% of
the winnings. How can I claim this prize?

Thank you"


... this should be fun

Generally, as a rule of thumb, they never read the first reply, nor do they care who replies to the email. They send out mass emails, usually they collect the email addresses from guest books and things like that. For my first reply I always write "I am interested, tell me more." Once they start asking you for payments, as they soon will. I will give you the tools to fake payments. They will want to talk on the phone, they will also want your fax number. I use netzero to make a phone number which they can leave a voice mail on and you can find free fax numbers online. There are several cool tools to help with these baits, if you are interested, let me know.
