Life is good! I was just notified via E-Mail from Great Britain that I have won 800,809.00 British Pounds, or US $1,509,053.44 at todays exchange rate. I am so happy, that I don't know what to do. Not bad for an Immigrant who was a victim of World War 2. Persecuted by the Commies and Natzies. When I came to this country in May of 1950 my dad, mother, and I had $3 in our pockets. Now I am a millionaire. Next month my bride of 50 years and I will be celebrating our Golden wedding anniversary. We will be dancing in the streets of Las Vegas. And here is the message about my win:

RE: AWARD NOTIFICATION.
This is to inform you of the release of THE NATIONAL LOTTERY INTERNATIONAL PROMOTIONS PRIZE DRAW, held on the 5th April,2004, but owing to some mix-ups of numbers and addresses and the holidays, the results were released on the 21st December,2004.
Your name was attached to ticket number 085-12876077-09 with serial number 51390-0 that drew the lucky numbers of 03-05-12-14-28-38, which consequently won the lottery in the 5th category.

This is from a total cash prize of 70,020.225.00, shared among the twenty-five international winners in this category.
Your fund is now deposited with our Bank/Payment centre and insured in your name. Due to mix-ups of some numbers and names, we ask that you keepthis award from public notice until your claim has been processed, and the money emitted to your account, as this is part of our security protocol, to avoid double claiming and unwarranted taking of advantage of this program by participants, as has happened in the past.

Is this real? Or is this one of those hoax emails? Did u really buy a ticket?
If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!
You never know when you will get another hit.

Sadly, so sadly (and not to put a damper on any excitement), but these are usually hoaxes. So-called recepients are required to send the "organization" a fee via western union in order to receive the money. I just say, if I've one so much money, just take out your fee and send me the rest...right?? Not so. I did some research when I received this type of email and discovered they are ALL hoaxes. I mean, how can you win a lottery without buying a ticket or selecting some numbers? Ya know?

i know you're really excited about this, but i"ve gotten these too, and if you did not purchase a ticket, you did not win. it's a scam. do not send them any money. this e-mail was from someone who really needs money, and will stop at nothing to get it.
I've redone my website. Go to www.dr-ew.com. I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff. Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

Not sure if you're trying to be ironic or mean what you say. Do you remember having bought any tickets?
Better check with this webpage to see if it's listed on Fraudwatch International.
It seem to be listed under "T" - The National Lottery.

Amazing! My three winning e-mail notices I received last week had the same number on them! It's so cool how we both happened to choose the same numbers, and we're both big winners!!!!

It's a sad state of affairs, when someone is always trying to rip off someone. If in fact hosni, you truly won,then I am very happy for you.

Carbob: Hosni did not win. It was sarcasm. Nobody reading this should have even a glint of hope in their mind that the e-mail hosni received was real.

I get these fraud letters in the mail and i have got them in many emails. It's fraud if you didn't actually purchase a lottery ticket then by all means you didn't win.
The only site i know that buys tickets for you is free lotto if you sign up for the offer. When the Mega or powerball jackpot reaches a certain level they offer a promotion.
Still the operative word here is sign up.

May the warm winds of heaven blow softly upon your house. May the Great Spirit bless all who enter there. May your mocassins make happy tracks in many snows. And may the rainbow always touch your shoulder.
