Thousands Fall For Hotmail Prank On BBC

by | 4th, November 2007

THE second most e-mailed story on the BBC is a scam about MSN hotmail and how the BBC covers it:

It is not unusual for pranksters and scammers to back up their sting with links to well-known websites.

I regularly get scam e-mail from alleged bankers or relatives of deposed dictators, asking me for help to squirrel away some money. The claim is usually backed up with a link to a CNN or BBC story about the firm or dictator.

The BBC could not refer to it and publish news instead. Or do they need the traffic?
