Toyota’s Troubled Times?

More spam to highlight on the slight chance that gullible Google key words before falling for this scam. If one were foolish enough to believe it, they would have to believe that Toyota gives away money and/or cars for free to random people, when at the same time they are so financially strapped that their employees in charge of the distribution of all this money are forced to use free Hotmail and/or Yahoo! addresses.

Please learn critical thinking skills if you find things like this plausible. I recommend Carl Sagan’s Baloney Detection Kit as a good place to start.
