An email offering cut-rate Fusion Hybrids is actually a hoax

We've all gotten the email telling us we've won eleventy million dollars and all they need is for us to submit our bank account details and 'socal (sic) security code'. But a new and enterprising scam is offering a brand new 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid for about half price - $15,500.

Unfortunately, despite the novel premise, it's not a legit deal. Ford also recommends that people receiving the message leave it unopened and do not open any attachments.

The real 2010 Fusion Hybrid starts out at $27,270 - before applicable tax credits - and offers the best mid-size sedan fuel efficiency available at 41mpg city/36mpg highway. For more on the Fusion Hybrid, check out our release story here.
