...even more amazing is that I didn't even play.

OK, this is another one of those scam emails I am sure everyone has received. Just in case there are any new-to-the-internet people out there, I thought I would post this to once again to warn everyone against falling for this scam (and the many other variations of this scam).

These scams usually get around to trying to get your bank account information so they can steal your money. Or they will insist on a "processing fee" or some "tax" be paid prior to you getting your "winnings." Although they may seem innocent enough in the beginning, it will always lead to an attempt to get your money.

This paticular scam email has mistakes in it (notice the spelling of Mackintosh).

Maybe tomorrow I will be able to post about winning a real lottery that I actually bought a ticket for...

      Is it from John Titor?

      Scared

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      Lep

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
