Another Internet Scam: "I received an email from claimsdept@bh.blackberry.bz..."

I received an email from claimsdept@bh.blackberry.bz saying I won a phone and $275,000. I sent an email back to them ( perhaps I am gullible) using ref # BBP/20/11 to claim the prize. Have not heard from them yet. This sounds like a scam and too good to be true.

I have a theory it may this email here:
birdhankar@hotmail.com
This person I had to block on hotmail a few times before they got the hint. Some folks have nothing better to do with their time than harass others and invade them. please have authorities look into this.

Yes i got one today too. Replied because its not very senstive information they asked for and hey what the hell right but am looking into it now. Theres a phone number provided on the email thats international so these people could be anywhere. At the very least if nothing comes back from them i will be reporting to blackberry because their using their good name to spread this around.
