    Giving a prize but paying $2500 to claim the prize is redundant especially with the economy such as it is.Low income families like mine are incapable of providing that amount.Using the internet to prey on poor people with false claims such as winning $5000000 is heart wrenching and painful.We don't have money to put food on the table, pay rent, gas is empty, I've had 2 strokes and unable to work at the age of 44 because of trying to raise my 2 children and put food in their bellies.What if I did fall for this scam and paid out that money?.Is there no conscience to your false promotion?No $2500, leads to no money prize?My husband and I researched, for he received this so called prize today and found that this has been considered a scam.We have been dealing with the dismay of our financial situation and possibly left without a home and have been living on less than 1 meal a day.We have been Fearful of what to do, where to go, what to eat??The light of my life, my reason for living has been to care for my beautiful daughter ...I am full on scared for her.Life is run on money, not love and people falsifying such scams to innocent, scared families that are broke leaves them even more broken hearted and at the bottomless pit of despair, barely able see daylight for their eyes burn with the continual tears.The thought of $5000000???Really??My husband and I, reminded of the reality that dream will never be present in our lifetime.We don't even know how long we can survive with the very limited food we have available.Years of poverty and making do is running out and my time on this earth seems to be fading fast.Your reminder of our life situation only wants me to speed up that process.If you have a conscience, please don't lead my husband on any further(pgoodfellow).Have Mercy on us poor folk. Sincerely Mother and wife, Ms.Tracy Spence
