Wow! I'm a multimillionaire. I have won the Irish Loterry, the Microsoft Lottery, the Tiger Woods Lottery, and a few dozen others, all because I have the lucky email. Hmmmmm. I don't know, but in Connecticut where I live the loterry had a slogan that you can't win if you don't play. Still every day, I just keep winning millions and millions of dollars daily. I anyone else being bombarded with these lottery scams?

Hey Karlag....thos emails comes from the third world countries, they get to anyone and everyone by using a software called extractor to get email addresses, so they send eevryone d same email u receieved and if ur fool enough to think u actually won a lottery u never played then ur on ur own. they later ask u ur phone number, contact address and bank account all for you to be duped....stay far from it and always report such email as scam. my wife was once scammed dont be

i think all of us are getting mails form such lottery that we won a million. the funny thing is we didnt even purchase any lottery tickets still we won. some people buy this kinds of email and end up losing a lot of money. my wife has a friend that she believes that she won a lottery from coke and she was really believing it just because she drinks coke har har har. my wife was convincing her not to believe but she said the people from coke even knows her name and her email address. so to make a long story short she realized that it was a fake.

I'm actually wondering why I never get those types of emails! I hear of people getting them all the time but they never seem to end up in my email box. I get tons of other junk mail but nothing telling me that I've won money..

These types of scams just drive me crazy. And what makes me really sad is that I know some people fall for them. I'm a bank teller, and many times at the bank I have stopped customers from depositing the checks sent for these scams and wiring out money. Even otherwise intelligent people often fall for these scams, usually because they are desperate. It's so sad that so many people out there are trying to scam honest people out of their hard-earned money. I'm glad I've had a chance to stop a few people at least from losing money this way!
