Do you think that this half-price automobile offer comes from Ford Motor Company? Of course not, it’s a spam scammer. While I admire this scammer’s creativity (there’s even a fake dealer sticker included with the message), you should not respond. Don’t be fooled!
The message I received was generated by a spam zombie in Florida, and was routed through ono.es, a web host in Spain.
