I don’t get enough lottery scam mails these days. So few that I almost like it when I get mail from people like the alias Dan Singh, who tries to get me to believe that I have won ”Eight Hundred And Fifty Thousand Pounds Sterling ” (not my capitalization). Furthermore Dan Sing sends his mail from a free Canadian e-mail service but wants my reply to a UK free e-mail service. One could expect that someone handling a million dollars would have access to a mail domain of his own…
And imagine… I didn’t even buy a ticket!
Of course, Dan Singh is a scammer and I have won nothing, just as you haven’t if you receive a similar mail.
Here’s the mail. As usual, with the mail header below.
