I had registered at freelotto.com about 3 months back. Within a few days of registering I started receiving emails, a part of which looks like the following: MEMORANDUM Office of Prize Administration DATE: December 18th, 2006 TO: C. Alison, CFO FROM: S.

Oak Harbor OH $100,000.00 PENDING Bill Herriott Glasgow UK $1,000,000.00 PAID A number of the pending winners listed above may be qualified to receive a check in the amount specified by verifying their PIN # on the following F.A.S.T. form, in conjunction with submitting the winning entry in accordance with FreeLotto rules, terms and conditions. The convenient F.A.S.T. service guarantees that a winning check in the amount of $1 Million will be released to its rightful winner upon said submission in conjunction with the rules. Now, everyday is has been the last date for them, since they keep on urging me to accept my prize and whenever I open the given link I am asked to submit my credit card number, which I never submit. Now I would like you all to help me in finding out whether this is real, and if there is any way to get them punished if they are not.
