e-mail offer turned up in my Spam today.
General admin. tickets for 2018 Canadian GP Sunday for under twenty bucks
Did not copy link here in case it is not legit.
Apparently only available this Friday

-Seems a little odd

Seems a bit too good to be true. What details is it asking for?

I'd be pretty suspicious of that. I don't even think legit Canadian GP tickets have gone on sale yet, so why only this Friday?

~95% chance it's a scam.

The best way is to check the URL of the return email. If it does not lead directly back to a legitimate, trustworthy, and established source, it's a scam.

99.99% a scam. If it sounds too good etc... but do you want to bet $20? :D


You can call 1-888-495-8501 to talk to RCMP fraud dept if you are in Canada. (according to google anyway)
