Mr Briggs is very generous.

I've noticed some quite sophisticated phishing scams landing in my junk inbox lately - they are really raising their game. The following isn't a bad effort. The grammar isn't perfect, but this is probably enough to part a warcraft obsessed 14 year old with his credentials. The link actually sends you off to some carefully crafted .ru. Sterling effort though.

world of warcraft: Cataclysm Beta Test Invitation!

Get those opt-ins ready for the World of Warcraft: Cataclysm closed beta! The sundering of Azeroth is nigh, and you don’t want to be left out in the cold of Northrend when you could be enjoying the sun-drenched beaches on the goblin isle of Kezan. To ensure you’re opted-in and eligible as a potential candidate, you’ll need a World of Warcraft license attached to your Battle.net account, have your current system specifications uploaded to the Battle.net Beta Profile Settings page, and have expressed interest through the franchise-specific check boxes.

Get the Installer - Log in to your Battle.net account: http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/account

** IMPORTANT ** To avoid graphical bugs and other technical issues, please ensure your video card drivers are up-to-date.

Enjoy the game!

That is a lot more credible than Mr. Briggs' effort to give me a 100.000.000.00 Million Pounds!

Amusing though scammer-baiting is as a concept, don't normal, well adjusted and, above all, employed, people with friends and family have better things to do with their time? Like posting on here?

I'm watching Jeremy Kyle as I type.

I prefer Jerry Springer, it just lacks a cage and bladed weapons.

That would make it the perfect entertainment show and be cheaper to society than funding compulsory sterilisation.
