  2. Wait... you believe that??

    It's a frigging scam... :roll:
  3. Sounds like one of those 'CONGRATULATIONS! - You've won <insert ridiculous amount of money>' letters.

    I've had a few of those before. Like sonja said, it is probably a scam or something that'll waste your time/money.

    I really don't know why people send these dodgey letters! Some things are just too good to be true. Drew, I could've sworn there is a huge hint of sarcasm in your topic subject... :)
  4. To release the funds into your account, all you have to do is deposit 1000 euros into our account as a processing fee, which will be reimbursed to you upon completion of the transaction.

    We also require you account numbers, log in details and passwords for your bank accounts so that we may complete the transaction in a timely fashion.

    We would also like to know the location of your valuables in the house and the whereabouts of the spare key to gain entry.

    As soon as all of the above has been passed to us, then we assure you that the million euros is yours. No really, it will be. Honestly.

  5. Easiest way to tell is google a detail like the REF number. That's what I did, and guess what...

    It's a scam.
  6. [sarcasm]
    yep i'm lucky

    of course it's a scam...i can tell that simply by the address of the idiot who sent it to me in the first place.

    as its not actually addressed to anyone in particular every Netrider could claim it.

    i guess i'll just have to work for that dream garage of bikes. :(
