I’m getting immensly rich! What should I do with all this money I keep winning? I have already won a million Euro at least ten times this year, and today I received the below notice that I have won two more millions.
Now wait… Why didn’t they tell me until now? The draw was in July 2003 and they didn’t tell me about my riches until now? And why have they formatted their mail in such a bad manner?
Of course it’s a scam. The sender (the alleged Eddy McGavin or if it’s Lylian Donald) wants me to confirm my email addres. Then I will go inte their files as a gullable person. After that they will want me to fill out a claims form, and most probably register for a sum that can be just about anything between 100 and 1,000 €. But I won’t. And anyway, I have now breached the confidentiallity of their notice, and disqualified myself.
