Win a New BMW! (scam alert)

The only thing better than winning a new car is winning a new car plus a million dollars! And all from a lottery you never entered! Unfortunately it’s all a scam. The message below, which thousands or maybe even millions of people received this month, is a classic lottery scam message. If you respond, you’ll be told you need to pay a “service fee” or something similar before your prize can be delivered. Once you pay the fee, the scammers will disappear and you’ll never hear from them again.
