Just got some BS email telling me I won some Mazda National Lottery crap, and I just wanted to give everyone a heads up, as it could possibly be getting email addresses from this site and targeting us.* Or, it could be completely unrelated.* Either way, the email I received is below.* To most of us, it's completely obvious it's a scam, but if I can stop* a single person from getting ripped off, then I'll be happy.*
P.S. Sorry if this is in the wrong section, feel free to move it, I just felt it's something everyone should be aware of.
The email was as follows:
