image for Latest Internet Scam turns out to be a Hoax

The latest scam put out by unscrupulous spammers turns out to be just a simple hoax.

The scam mail was sent to the inbox of anyone with a government email address in the UK, but is also thought to have been circulated using other mailing lists.

The email urges people to click on a link contained within the body of the email, otherwise the world will end. However, when clicked it turns out that it just re-directs the tricked user into visiting the website of Rap Star Dizzy Rascal. Internet science people experts assured the public that the end of the world does not come about if the link is left un-clicked, but many people were unwilling to chance it.

Disappointed at the hoax, many of the hoodwinked people who suffered from the viral scam have taken to coming through their junk mail to see if emails from people with bad English can improve their sex lives.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
