Frankly I can be a curmudgeonly so-and-so when it comes to big events that I have to pay for out of my taxes, and the Olympics is one of them. But it’s a bit late to hand it to the French I suppose, so I was quite pleased to get this email from the “British Olympic and United Kingdom National Lottery” saying that I had won £950,000

Of course, it’s all a scam. The email originates from 216.172.135.112 (EGIHosting / AFNCA) which claims to be based in the US, but I’ve seen this ISP so often with Advanced Fee Fraud emails that it may as well be in Lagos.
