Once again I am recieving a lot of e-mails saying I have won a lottery in the UK! I'm also getting e-mail from Nigeria saying I have money over there aand to get it I have send money! Even have e-mails from some dying person,supposely from csncr snd has alot of cash to give away! I know they are scams! People will come up with anything to scam out of money! Just be forewarn and don't fall for that nonsense! they are all scams!

I also get emails as well as letters and i delete the emails as soon as i get them just in case they carry a virus.The letters that come i tend to rip them up and they go in the bin.I feel sorry for people that do reply to things like this as they are so convinced that they have won.

It amazes me that people are so gullible when it come to that! It is like they don't think when they get e-mails like saying they won a lottery in the UK! You'd think they wouls realize they never did enter a lottery from the UK?

Not only you but all having email id and cell phone get such stuff, they come from Nigeria i am told, once you submit your details, some body will make you a call to deposit some money as legal expenses, you gave means it is gone. many get trapped lol. thanks for sharing. happy posting, cheers kalyani

Like the P.T. Barnum said "There is a sucker born every minute"! That is so true! It amazes me that how gullible people are! Even Mylotters! I started this discussion because someone here was falling for all of those scams/scenes we all seem to get on our e-mail! There was someone who needed advice on a scam that they thought were true,too! As long as there are gullible people there will be scams!

Hi Blue65packer I always get those kinds of emails I have been getting them for months now I always just delete them ,,,I'm not sure who they thinkk they can fool with that nonsense evidently some people must fall for it because they continue to send them a lot of times the spelling is bad ,many typos and what really gets me is that you know you haven't participated in any foriegn or overseas lottery from Nigeria or the UK (Iv'e even gotten them from Scotland , China, Japan, ect..) If it weren't so annoying it would be funny that someone could have nothing else better to do with their time then something as stupid as that.

Sometimes I delete those e-mails before I read them. Sometimes I do and I get a kick out how many I get for a while! Then they stop and a it isn't long I get them again! Of course this people don't give up and never will!
