Received the following in my e-mail this morning. Guess I won't have to worry about insurance adjusters and getting my roof fixed sometime before next July. Now I can buy that island I've had my eye on...... :rainfro: :rainfro:


International Promotions/Prize Award Department

International Promotions Program.

You/Your company, attached to ticket number 6X22-X-4X6, with serial number X9-1X drew the lucky numbers 33-X2-78-X5 (XX) and consequently won in the

..... This is from the total prize money of $13,000,000 shared amongst the winners in this category.


Your fund is now deposited with our transfer agents and insured in your name. In your best interest and also to avoid mix up of numbers and names of any kind, we request that you keep the entire details of your award strictly from public notice
until the process of transferring your claims has been completed, and your funds remitted to your account. This is part of our security protocol to avoid double

Please contact your claims agent immediately for due processing and remittance of your prize money to a designated account of your choice:

Note I've changed the numbers so none of you greedy starving appraisers try to hone in on my action :rainfro:

Wonder what else they would need if I really was gullible enough to e-mail and fax them back?

60 minutes did a piece a few weeks ago about the Canadian Lottery Scam. The scam targets senior citizens in the US. You get a call that you have won the lottery but first you have to pay taxes on the winnings. You can't tell anyone about the prize or you forfeit the winnings. I was surprised to see how many senior citizens got suckered. Most lost tens of thousands, some lost hundreds!
