Look what I fished out of my spam folder this morning. This is a variation on the usual lottery scam, and more enjoyable than most. But really, a BMW 760Li? While the 6.6-litre twin-turbo Rolls Royce engine would be zippy on Phoenix-area highways, we certainly don’t need the cold-weather package here. Anyway, the M4 two-door coupé is more my style.
To be serious: When you get spam like this, simply delete the message. Don’t reply, don’t click any links, including unsubscribe links.
