Now if only UEFA would give me tickets instead of cash

A scam, but I might have clicked for tickets.

It's just a scam (see below), but I might have been duped into clicking had they promised me tickets to Arsenal's next Champions League match in Milan.

Clearly spammers need to tailor their messages to their audience a bit better. Promise me football (soccer) tickets and I'll be happy to send my firstborn. :-)
