    I had to share this, it made me laugh. Look at the subject and sender then the email content.

    For you guys not from the UK, British Gas is a domestic energy supplier and virgin media is a UK cable TV operator.

    Doesn't seem that bad... Simply selected the wrong template before sending.

    The message itself is good enough to get some people. They might have not gotten you for the scam but they still won as you loaded an external image; now they know your email address is good for spam lists.

    Isn't that what makes it bad or am I missing something!! lol

    I get hundreds of spam emails on that account every week, its just one of about 50 mail.com accounts I use usually for verifying accounts or obtaining "freebies" so long as I provide my email address. I'm one of these people that doesn't actually mind spam because things like this give me a laugh, I think I'm wise enough to not be caught out by most of the email scams.

    haha :) funny, though sirsmash is right, many might not have looked at the whole thing. All was left for him to add to the email was that you also inherited like 5 mil dollars but needed to pay some taxes first :D

    I'm disappointed, they should have included something about a nigerian prince too.

    I beg to differ, If you read the article it clearly states that Richard Branson opened his first record shop under the name virgin in Oxford Street London in 1971. His later venture in Australia came about in 2000 named Virgin Blue.

    Kind of irrelevant though.
