Ok, FIRST off, Shell is a Canadian Gas company, so uh, how about stop telling me there’s over 10 million “pounds” (UK money) waiting for me to claim, so I should just send you all of my contact information. Seriously??? Ok, first off, when I select “show more info” on the address it was sent from? 1) It is NOT the reply to address. 2) Both address have nothing to do with either the lottery after the “@” symbol. Clearly a scam and 3) I can’t claim money when I have nothing to do with the country, because I have not been born there, lived there momentarily, visited, nothing. Just been in Canada my whole life and visited the states once so far. And OH RIGHT! I didn’t enter a contest related to this subject you emailed me about. DELETE!

Sad thing is that there are people foolish enough to fall for these goofey things otherwise they wouldn't keep sending them. I get the microsoft one regularly. Heck if I won as often as these people say I do ( since I get a dozen different ones every day ) I'd be richer than Trump & Gates together.

I got the same exact email from Shell and I don't know why. I usually don't get spam like that directly in my inbox. I find it strange that I started getting a few emails like this after I applied for some jobs on Craigs List. I even got a couple of telemarketing calls...I will no longer use Craigs List.

Annoying aren't they - there is an internet one going about saying my account is blocked even though I have never had an account with them. (I thought Shell was a Dutch company though)

I noticed that too, both that Shell is a dutch company, as well as the email saying the account is blocked. They annoy me, thankfully the majority goes straight to my spam folder. But what doesn't change, is that I still didn't enter a contest for them hehe. Thanks for responding and happy myLotting!
