On-Line Fraud

Following a spate of bogus emails, BMW UK would like to underscore that it does not offer cash prizes or cars as part of free prize draws. An email entitled ‘International Awareness Promotion Department of the BMW Automobile Company’ is not a bonafide BMW campaign and the firm has no relationship with the people responsible for issuing the notices.

Richard Price, BMW national customer service manager, said: “We are aware that there are a number of similar emails in circulation and we are currently investigating how to prevent those responsible from using BMW’s name in such a way. We advise anyone who receives the email not to enter into correspondence with the sender.”
