Email Scam: Freemason Society of Bournemouth

A message from Brother Victor Sereno in Britain warns of a Masonic email scam making the rounds:

I have been told of a scam which seems to be aimed at US brn.
There is a message purporting to come from the Freemason Society of Bournemouth offering grants for masonic purposes.
This `society' doesn't exist; the telephone numbers are not local Bournemouth numbers.

It appears to be a phishing ploy.

Please delete such an `offer' if you receive it.

See the 3rd Annual Nigerian Email Conference.
