Christmas displays seem to be arriving in the shops earlier and earlier. Not to be left out, the scammers are already sending out 'Christmas Lottery' results.

It seems that I am meant to believe from an email that starts 'Dear Recipient' that I won a lot of money in a Christmas Lottery Draw in September 2007 (September??). Then again, it's still August. Maybe the 'cliams agent' could buy 'Williams' a calendar?

Dear Recipient,
You have just won FIFTEEN MILLION EUROS in our CHRISTMAS LOTTERY DRAWS for SEPTEMBER 2007. Contact your cliams agent via the email below.

Sincerly,

Mr. Williams Chester

Search engines find multiple mentions of 38.119.107.74 in relation to an alleged hacker from Gdynia in Poland. Quite possibly it is a proxy that is now being used by someone else.

Never trust a smiling duck.
