Nuclear CERN lads create black hole
The following is one of the weirdest Advance Fee Scams that we ever came across.
The scammers claimed to be scientists at CERN in Switzerland about to wreck the planet. Anyone who replied was
asked to pay UKL 3000 a head for plane tickets to an island in the South Pacific that somehow would be spared.

My name is Professor FRANK, senior data analyst here at the CERN institute based here in Geneva
(http://public.web.cern.ch/public/) CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the worlds
largest and most respected centres for scientific research. Its business is fundamental physics, finding out what the Universe is made of and how it works. You may have seen on the news that, in recent days, our Large Hadron Collider machine has been colliding high-speed beams of energy in order to explore new physics and understand how the universe began. CERN have been adamant that this is safe, however I KNOW THE TRUTH.
The truth is that this experiment that CERN are conducting is extremely dangerous, and could cause global disaster.
This experiment has a 95% of causing a black hole, thus swallowing a large area of the planet. The scientists do not want you to know this as they know it will cause panic.
However, I can help you.
I am arranging for a number of selected people to be evacuated to a safe location on an island in the South Pacific via aeroplane. You have been selected from random to take part in this evacuation, thus continuing the survival of
the human race.
