Using Oprah to sell a scam! What's next?


Just when it looked as though scammers couldn't get any lower, the FBI pointed out that yes, indeed, they can. These email banditos have pretended to be from banks, Ebay and even posed as the head of the FBI himself. But now they're using Oprah's good name to try to take your money. For shame.

The FBI issued a warning that the Internet Crime Complaint Center has been collecting complaints about some very bad person(s) sending out emails telling them that they have been nominated for the "Oprah Millionaire Contest Show." They're asked for some limited personal information. That's just the hook.
