Again, I’ve won two million Euro lotteries in one day! Not bad. Even though the mail below asks me to keep this confidential, I’ll publish the winning notice. After all, it is nothing but a scam.
One thing that keeps surprising me with these lottery scams is that they so often are sent to an undisclosed list of receipients. After all, I am to be lead to believe that I won on my e-mail address. And, they just might gain some trust by spelling the word superball correctly.
