    Consider this: Did you actually fill out an entry for this particular lottery? Chances are you did not. So yes its possibly a ruse.

      I got one last week that said I won $27,000, but asked for a one-time processing fee of $29.00. Why don't they just deduct the fee from the winnings?

      What the heck.....I'll give you 500 bucks, just take it out before sending me the difference...LOL

            I won over 20 times on that one. But still have yet to see a penny. As well as the Nigerian lottery that I won $50 million about 10 times now. fortunately I decided not to send them the $3,000 in tax money for my prize, as with that kind of money you would think it could be deducted from the prize amount very easily. That is if it was a LEGITIMATE prize. DING DING SCAM ALARM RINGING! Dupe Alert

              you won the nigerian lottery? me, too!!!

               

              and i didn't know i had so many dead relatives in nigeria, either.  you'd think with all the dead relatives, they wouldn't have to go so far to contact lil ol me here in america to find a living relative.

               

              man, nigeria must be the dump of planet earth, if people have to resort to scams like that to make a living.  the bad thing is... they do it because it works.  was it here that someone posted about a little old lady who spent like 100,000 of her own savings to try to get winnings that didn't exist from people who recognized a sucker when they had one?

              i wonder how quickly the scam artists set up fake charities for the families of those dead school children whose plane crashed inside the country recently? as soon as the plane took off?  if only the scam artists could be nuked while leaving the good people alive and well.
