"Congratulations!!! You have won the sum of €2, 000, 000 . Your number was among the lucky winners randomly selected in FreeLotto mobile Promo held in Amsterdam.for claims send email:frelottery@aol.com”

Wanted to check if this was a regular before I delete the text!

    Sit down. Have some tea. Auntie is going to explain some facts of Internet life to you.

    It's a scam, pumpkin. It's called an "Advance Fee Fraud Scheme." Here's how it will go. You will e-mail the nice con man (or woman). He or she will ask for lots of personal information from you. Then they'll ask you for some money for this fee or that fee. You'll fork over the money, expecting to finally get your money. But all that comes is another fee request.

    Eventually, they'll stop answering e-mails, or returning phone calls because they've "milked the sucker dry, " (that would be you, pumpkin). Even if you do manage to track them down, you'll never find them. Internet cafés and throw-away cell phones are the lives of these festering boils on the ### of Life.

    I know it's nice to think you're a winner. It's nice to think all your dreams are about to come true. It's nice to think your ship has come in. It hasn't, pumpkin. It's just a text message from some con artist who wants to steal from you. You learned in elementary school that there weren't some very nice kids out there. This is another one.

    Drink your tea. It'll get cold.

    Auntie
