The following is one of hundreds of emails I have received over the past two years informing me of millions of dollars awaiting my reply:

Serial Number: 652-662

We wish to congratulate you over your success in our computer balloting sweepstake held on Saturday 30th June 2007.
This is a millennium scientific computer game in which email addresses were used. It is a promotional program aimed at
encouraging internet users, hence you do not need to buy ticket to enter for the game.

However, your email address was attached to ticket number 021-33600041;with serial number 652-662 and drew the lucky numbers
83-14-11-21-69-92-57 which eventually won you the lottery in the first category of the draws. You have therefore won a lottery jackpot prize awards of £800,000.00 (EIGHT HUNDRED THOUSAND GREAT BRITISH POUNDS STERLINGS). This is from a total prize money of US$30,000,000.00 distributed to winners from 1st to 3rd categories.
Note that this program was largely promoted and sponsored by a group of philanthropist, industrialists from the internet ware
industry and some other multinational companies who wish to be anonymous,as part of their social responsibility to the
citizens in the communities where they have operational base.
