It's my lucky day!

Or not.

As much as I'd be amused by a free Mac Book Air, given to me by the CEO of Craigslist, I'm thinking this is a scam, what do you think?


Hello, my name is Jim, Ceo of

We fairly recently combined up with Apple about a 1 time advertising event lately, we're giving freely complimentary MacBook Air to randomly selected men and women who have posted an advert that use C-list. You've been selected as one of our most current winners for this week. We now randomly choose stats to match up with advertising on Craigslist and your advertisement matched with this latest drawing.

You'll find we combined with Apple to promote their best device yet, the Apple MacBook Air. Remember, were running this campaign for 1 day only. All you need to do is Click On This Link to visit our web-site designed for this promotion and put in your email to acquire yours cost-free. Be sure you you enter your email therefore we may find our records to be sure that we've reserved one for you personally. That's all!

Congratulations on winning a free of charge Apple MacBook Air (valued at $1,499.00). If you ever get any problem or problems, at any time email me back. Regardless, be sure to claim your cost free MacBook Air firstly to make certain 1 is booked for you prior to the deadline ends. We do know that you could possibly not receive this mail until following the due date, nevertheless, we advise you take a look at the web-site and provide your email to find out if we still have yours on hold, which we often do because others haven't claimed theirs on time.


Ceo, Cl
Now, given that I'm never this lucky, I figured this was fishy, especially since the CEO of Craigslist is named Jim Buckmaster, and the originating address for this email was Jim Bassi <>.  The poor grammar doesn't help either, but I figured you don't have to be a genius to be a CEO (take a look at several of them out there)...

But of course, this is a scam.

Darn, I was hoping to get addicted to Apple products so I could help pay to keep Steve Jobs' corpse frozen in nitrogen until they find a cure for his cancer.  (too soon?)
