When I get them I send them to the spam folder. I know I didnt win any lottery because I didnt enter in any lottery.

I have taken one that far before as well, and when they ask me too send money to receive the winnings I emailed them back and told them to send me my winnings and I would pay them what they wanted.....never heard from that one again
