I don’t know if the lottery scammers have taken to writing more and shorter mails because of sites like this, but the last few days I have received several e-mails like this one. Very short, and with very few searchable keywords execpt for the names of the person who writes them and the so-called payment agent.
I don’t think they will get very far with it. Their scams are even more unbelievable without a name for the lottery.
