A scam email message has been doing the rounds congratulating recipients that they have won a Toyota Yaris 2010 model.
The email congratulates you on winning a Toyota Yaris 2010 model. To dispatch the vehicle, winners are urgently required to contact Mr Daniel Adams on 082 365 2218 with instructions as follow:
"To claim your winnings, you are requested to pay the following fee:
Car registration fee of R370
Car insurance deposit fee of R1 560
The total amount of R1 930 is to be deposited into a FNB account and faxed to 086 620 4849."
"This is a scam and Trudon has nothing to do with this so-called competition," says Chris Deeks, GM: Online and Search for Trudon, publishers of Yellow Pages.
