    I get those all the time on the email account I have set up for those.

    So far I've gotten about 5 "certified" bank checks, about 150 cash (which is now in the hands of Customs Agents with all the paperwork from Western Union), and some trinkets (which customs allowed me to keep lol ).

    I email them back with "Wow, I won, that is so great, blah, blah, blah" and then tell them to call me (I have a dedicated line just for them) where I tape everything and never answer (I don't know how much they have to spend for the call but I had one call me over 30 times in a two month period).

    I got the idea to "play the game" from a website that I love to read (he hasn't gotten much lately, I think he's bored with the game or they are onto him).

    Oh, and I've been cursed about a thousand times now lol. They are fun to play with if you have the time.

    I have no need to participate in these silly lottery scams. I am just about to collect the secret inheritance from the former Nigerian Minister of Finance. You better believe I'm quittin' the day job!

    Good Grief! How many numbers do you need for this one?

    Other than that, you should take a vacation to Europe with your winnings, say you will show up to sign personally.

    Not impressed!

    I'm getting my settlement from a dead oil exec. that "bought it" on a road near Praetoria.

    They couldn't actually find any heirs, but since I am helping them get the money Out of Africa, I get to keep 30% PLUS a 3% handling fee, of approximately 1.5 million dollars! Shhhh, I can't tell a soul...
