Has anyone ever recieved an email like this before? Once I click the link they want me to sign up for gold games club for $9.25. Do you think that its just a scam to get members to sign up? Congratulations! You are the 1,000,000th DonkeyMails visitor! YOU WON $400! Recently, we have reached 144,000 members. DonkeyMails has over 4,000,000 visits monthly, so we decided to give cash prizes every 1,000,000th visitor every month. This month, you are the one of 4 winners who will get $400 from DonkeyMails! Your prize ($400) will be transferred directly to your e-Gold, PayPal or AlertPay account.

Thank you all who has commented back on this subject. I did contact the company and they did say that it was not them sending this out. Sad how people use emails to get into your account. I now pay close attention to who is sending me the email thank you again have a wonderful day.

Hi there.. Don't ever think about opening that email since the Real Donkeymails have already warned all the members about it.. that we should not open that email saying we won $400 or else our accounts will be deleted by the "Real" donkeymails admin. The email about winning $400 is just a scam and it definitely did not came from donkeymails admin. So better ignore it, delete it and mark it as spam so that that email won't reach you again.. Best of luck!

I also got from the yahoomails that i have won 500$ from them as they chose one winner monthly and for that month i was the one but for that i have to join there games section and for that i have to give 10$. So i that that would be some kind of scam so i did'nt tried as i thought it would be scam as they will not give away so much money in this way.
