Cape Town - The South African Rugby Union (SARU) is alerting people to an email version of a Rugby World Cup scam aimed at Springbok supporters.

In the latest version of what was once a cellphone-based attempt at fraud, individuals receive emails telling them they have won £1m in cash in a Rugby World Cup promotion, purported to be run by SARU.

Typically, the message reads: “We wish to notify you that your email address was automatically selected during the RUGBY 2011 world cup finals in New-Zealand and has won you GBP1 000.000.00 Cash (One Million Great Britain Pounds) Payable through our Paying Bank.”

A SARU spokesperson said: “We can categorically confirm that no competition has ever existed of this nature and that the email should be ignored.”
