I received a variation of the old e-mail lottery scam this morning, so I thought I'd post it to warn others.

It comes under the subject line Visa Card Award Promotion.  It's amazingly silly, but you'd be surprised just how many gullible and desperate people there are out there who fall for this scam.

I love the part that warns about breaching confidentiality -- you can't tell anyone that you won!    (The grammar is also a wonder to behold.)
