Exclamation Buyers Warned on Fake BMW Scam

Admin might want to pin this notice for a while.

Buyers Warned on Fake BMW Scam

BMW owners are being duped by email scammers

Auto Express



Watch out for fraudulent E-mails claiming to be from premium marque BMW.

Messages entitled 'International Awareness Promotion Department of the BMW Group' have been sent to thousands of motorists, offering cash prizes and free cars. The firm claims it has no link with the E-mails, and has launched an investigation aimed at shutting down the fraudsters.

wait till BMW gets a hold of them.
BMW can do anything...
examples:
BUY a font (yes, really)
Get Blacklisted on Google.. (yup, that one too...)
...and cause every enthusiast group to take BMW or the Roundel out of their sites, etc (e.g. www.bmw-forums.com)

Hate to piss in your cheerios but,

We got the internal press release at work and BMW said the source of the fraudulent emails are generating from a server in Nigeria. And it is "unfortunately of their legal jurisdiction".

I'd post the press release, but I value my job.

I think you ment an "internal memo".....

If it was a "press release" -- as the name suggests it would be an announcement to be made to the press -- hence a public statement.
