could you please help me with this. what i received today is so convincing that i might fall for it. i received a letter from a certain european lottery guild via post. it doesn't say there that i've won it just say that i might be one of the 250 people who might get the $265M. don't blame me for being convinced since the grammar was really good. a website that looks legit (same name with a .com). plus they provide phone numbers and where to fax the letter for the application. what makes me doubt? i have to pay $15 for entering and i can pay it via cheque, demand draft or thru cards. money is no problem since its only $15, its the giving of my credit card details that bothers me. since thats the only way i can pay. the sure thing i can get from this prior to the letter is the $6k bonus. what do you think guyz? should i let myself fall from the trap? or should i take risk? if you want picts of the letter i could show it to you but only via request. please let me know ASAP. i have a deadline for this =D. thanks.

The first thing that you need to ask yourself is? Did you actually enter this lottery? If the answer is yes did they provide you your lottery numbers. after reading this post any you haveing to pay 15$ This now sounds like one of those nigerian scams I've always been told about. Great King so and so wants your personal information so you can be paid the sum of 100 Million US Dollars. Why would anyone want to pay you when you don't know anyone over there. My Suggestion stay away from this one Especially if it's asking for 15$ for a 6000$ Bonus? Seems Fishy to me. Hope this helps. Jon

Don't do it angel. Lottery contests which requires you to pay before claiming your price money are most probably SCAMS! If they're really going to give away 6k bonus or a chunk of the 265M why the hell do they need your $15 for?
