    You're done! You will never get your money back! I had a friend who was dumb enough to fall for that scam. Why did you do that? What made you think you won? Don't you generally have to buy a ticket in order to win? You think people are just out their looking for winners? No, they're looking for suckers, and they found one. Sorry pal, but maybe next time you'll learn.

    Oh and you gave them all the information they need to commit identity theft. I would go to freecreditreport.com and get my credit report. Check it, and flag your credit report as a possible identity theft if anything is funny.
