He died in 1898, but that doesn’t stop Baron Otto von Bismark from wanting to scam you from beyond the grave. Sure, he’s calling himself Diplomat Otto Bismark, but that can’t fool me: We know he’s the First Chancellor of the German Empire, seeking his revenge.
Amusing though this email is, it is a scam. After all, why would a United Nations official be sending email from the lee.org domain, and want you to write him at a free address hosted by a German mail service? And you’d think the wily Baron would know if this was an inheritance or lottery winnings, right?
