I am not a spring chicken or stupid. The first thing I done was ran a search for:

the bmw international awareness promotion uk

Just as I figured, it is a scam and has been running for quite some time, "years". Some people must be falling for it and sending money for phoney fees and that is so sad!

Re: Oh Lucky Me

or maybe that guy on Lifelock- says his identity cant be stolen..
heck he might like getting some new id alerts to show it works...lol


Scammers are all around , even using job hunting as a way to get the information they need..

Don't be afraid to say what you feel, as those that matter DOnt mind and those that mind Dont matter.

Re: Oh Lucky Me

I got one the other day that my American Airlines frequent flyer account had drawn and I was selected to received a cash reward of $150,000.00 and all I had to do was "click here" and answer a short survey.

That's funny, I don't even have an AA frequent flyer account! Proof that there's one born every minute. I wonder how many people click anyway hoping they'll still get the money?
