    Ok ok...ofcourse this is a scam. I mean, isn't there something a little suspicious about one day sitting down to go on your laptop/computer and suddenly receiving an email offering you $1, 000, 000.00?
    (Sarcastically)- But then again it must be true because with all the disease and suffering in the world, there is no better use of anyone's time than to send an email to 5 random people randomly offering them $1, 000, 000.00.

    I was not scamed by these people (I never entered a lottery)But If I was trusting (as I sometimes am) I
    could and would have been scamed. their is a lot of broke people in america ($850, 000.00 is a dream come true).

    I just want every one to be on the look out for fake lotteries you never entered wanting to give you a lot of money

    I have learn that before I belive anything I GOOGLE their site address and find out what they are really about. And also you can not win the lottery if you did not buy a ticket and you can not get a grant if you did not apply for it, Sorry but this are all SCAMS. Remember GOOGLE them first. And do not send no personal information.

    I get these kinds of emails every day from Nigeria and the UK in my inbox. I wish there was something that we could do about it. I got one the other day from the FBI, and one from the MICROSOFT AWARD TEAM ( ONLINE MICROSOFT PROMO!!! ) Why does my E-mail keep getting loaded down with this sh** ?
