    This is obviously fake. It is way too stupid to be real. You won some lottery you didn’t know existed because you have an email. Come on man, I didn’t actually think that people even entertained these things anymore. My goal lately has been to try and scam the scamer. I hope i get lucky one of these idiots will actually send me money to try and trick me into thinking they are legitimate. If I find that fool, I am keeping his money.
