Recently received an email from so called COCACOLA PROMO saying that I have won few hundred thousand pounds and asking me to contact  an agent in UK.

I know this is a spam, a fraud mail to get hold of people and ask them for money before the actual prize is handed over which actually never happens.

But what is more terrible this time is that these guys have started using good brands now to do all these fishy things.

Hope Coca-cola get hold of these people and do something in this regard. Many people have already forged under this damn name.

Following is the email I received from “cocacolaoffer33@rediffmail.com
