It happened again. I won another lottery without even entering!
Seriously, with all the warnings for these types of scams, how can they keep it up? How many gullable people are there out there? Of course, it could be interesting to call one of those numbers… ask them why they use such strange email addresses when notifying their winners, why they mass-mail to ”undisclosed-recipients”, why they don’t know my name…
