      I don't know Barry, they seem pretty determined to give away a boat load of money.  I'd be willing to sell my winning numbers to anyone interested smile

    Well, I know for a fact that the UK lottery doesn't pay out to anyone outside the UK. This is the URL for the UK lottery. http://www.national-lottery.co.uk/player/p/home.ftl

    Do you think this is the same as those emails from Nigeria?

    MY CLAIM TO FAME IS WITH 'FREELOTTO' GUYS.
    CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW MANY HOURS THEY WASTE PUTTING THEIR TIME INTO MANUFACTURING THESE SCAM WINS FOR US TO GET ALL EXCITED ABOUT, ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT IT IS ALL A BIG LIE.
    THEY COULD PUT THEIR TIME TO SOMETHING BENEFICIAL TO PEOPLE AND NOT SOMETHING THAT IS SOUL DESTROYING AND HAS THE CAPACITY TO CAUSE SO MUCH HURT AND DAMAGE TO A PERSON AND THEIR LOVED ONES, WHO ARE ALSO AFFECTED BY THESE ATTEMPTS TO CONVINCE PEOPLE LIKE US THAT WE HAVE WON ALL THIS MONEY, WHAT A RIP OFF.
    WE HAVE TO BE VERY WARY OF E MAILS THAT SAY WE HAVE WON MONEY IN A LOTTERY ESPECIALLY WHEN WE DON'T EVEN HAVE ENTRIES IN THEM DON'T YOU ALL AGREE WITH THIS  BB

    I wonder if they are related to those poor girls in the refugee camps looking for someone to befriend them (and send them bank info to transfer their families' money to, to get it out of the banks there) - HEY maybe we could send them your winning numbers?

      Don't know, they may be working with those poor widows who have tons of cash stored in safety deposit boxes all over Europe, but sadly they too are dying of some dreadful disease and only have weeks, maybe days to live and they need my help to get their money to a safe place, preferably my own bank account because their beloved met me in a chat room and thought I was a swell guy and knew I would put it to good use.  smile

    I suggest you send them your full name, address, social security card, and a copy of your driver's license asap.  I mean, you want to speed the payout process along, right?  In fact, why not invite them to your holiday celebration at your home?  I mean, they are going to be giving you all that money... the least you could do is provide a little hospitality.

    HA! smile

    (I've "won" these a few times myself.)

    I got two letter almost identicle to yours, only one was from the president of the USA, and the other one was from the head boss of the FBI.  The first letter is like that one, and then you will get another correspondance saying that you need to send someone some cash, like just enough to open a debit card, or some other like excuse.  Head of the FBI? is now in charge of handing out lottery winnings?  where to they come up with these ideas. WOW

    Congrats!!! I won that too. Microsoft sure seems to have alot of money to give away!  Also, a nigerian princess needs help deposting her money. It seems as though its not safe in her country. If I am kniod enough tolet her use my accont, shel let me keep a couple mill....
    whats really so sad though, is a lot of older people actualy fall for this. I saw a woman on the news once, who had lost all her money, she was in her seventies and lived alone..it was heartreaking. The police were telling her there was nothing they could do...
