Recently(today) I received an email stating that I was the winner of the amazing amount of 918,000 Euros as a result of a lottery. WOW!!!!. I continue reading in disbelieve because it sound so legit. While your reading you maybe thinking of all the thing your going to be doing with this money.
But then again I think "hey wait a minute, this is to good to be true". One thing I have learned and I think you will agree is that, if its to good to be true... its not true. I never entered any web lottery, so why should i win one. And by the way how in the world just gives out that amount of money?
The deal is that they ask for money to process the paper work and also ask for your phone number and personal information. WOW, i have to pay to get the prize that I won, that I never applied for. 1+1=2. This is a SCAM!!! So I quickly went and erased the mail.
Here I include a similar email(not exactly mine, since I went and erased it quickly), but it looked just like this one. So if you get an email like this, dont even think about it and delete it.
