    The same incident happened with me too regarding the gulf oil & gas company lottery.The first mail that i received was almost the same as all the others have got and when i responded for the first mail a person by the name JAMES CLAYTON send another mail which was interesting.Im attaching that mail

    Hello Dearest One,


    I hope my email meets you well. My name is Sgt .James Clayton jr. I am
    in
    the Engineering military unit here in Baghdad in Iraq , with
    Oesophageal
    cancer which has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now
    I
    have only about a few weeks/month to live, according to medical
    experts.
    My late 2 colleagues who died last week in a bomb blast and I found a
    huge
    sum of $25 Million USD in Baghdad neighbourhood
    (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm) that we have
    successfully moved out of the country to Spain via a diplomatic
    courier
    service. I am contacting you because i want you to help with claiming
    of
    this merchandise and help me distribute them to charity organizations
    and
    homeless people.


    I feel distributing the funds would be a way to appease the LORD and
    also
    want God to be merciful to me and my late friends and also accept our
    souls ,because we have killed so many in the war, but we where only
    serving our country. I have decided to give this sum 0f $25 Million USD
    to
    charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds
    I
    do on earth.

    I will want you to help me collect this consignment and dispatched it
    to
    charity organizations like i have said earlier. I have set aside 30%
    for
    you and your time. The most important thing is that can I TRUST you
    Once
    the funds get to you?, and also would you distribute the rest 50% to
    charity organizations?. Your own part of this deal is to contact the
    DIPLOMATIC COURIER SERVICE on how the consignment can be released and
    sent down to your home address and also find a safe place where the
    funds can be kept. If you are interested I will furnish you with more
    details.

    But the whole process is simple and we must keep a low profile at all
    times because if the authorities are aware of this funds, it would be
    seized and used for purchasing ammunitions and irrelevant accessories,
    whereby we have so many sick, homeless kids dying with hunger..

    I am awaiting your urgent response on my private email address,
    [protected]@yahoo.com

    IN GOD WE TRUST!!!!


    Regards.

    I am also in receipt of the following emial...

    it appears to be bogus and cheating people

    No one on this earth will offer free meal unless it is a charity.

    in this case giving this much huge amount is not a charity.. simply they are luring to get the people into this net who aspire for easy money..

    Be careful

    LADIES AND GENTLEMENT. IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, THEN IT IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.

    IT IS EXTREMELY BAD BUSINESS TO GIVE A PRODUCT WITHOUT PAYMENT, THIS PLACE TOO MUCH TRUST IN THE CONSUMER AND IS HORRIBLE BUSINESS PRACTICE.

    ALSO, PLACING MONEY IN THE HANDS OF OTHERS WITHOUT KNOWING THIER VITAL INFORMATION IS REASON TO SUSPECT SOMETHING IS WRONG.

    DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT BUY INTO THIS. IF IT IS LEGIT THEN IT IS HIGHLY ILLEGAL AND YOU WILL CERTAINLY GET INTO AS MUCH TROUBLE AS THIS BOGUS OFFER.

    **THIS IS ABSOLUTELY NO REFLECTION ON GULF OIL & GAS, BUT SINCE I DO NOT KNOW THEIR HISTORY, IT WOULD BE WISE TO STEER CLEAR.

    I HOPE THIS HELPS ALLEVIATE ANY ISSUES.

    SINCERELY,
    JD

    I wholeheartedly agree with John Doe!

    I get these emails on a daily basis. If all of them were true (or at least a few) I would be a millionaire many times over!

    A dead giveaway that this is a SCAM would be that they ask you to keep everything confidential.

    When we play the lottery here in the US (and I'm sure a few countries do this too), EVERYONE knows that you've won. You're paraded in front of the whole state (or the whole country) holding this huge cheque so that the fact that you've come into a huge sum of money can be made public.

    Another dead giveaway that the lottery email is a scam is when you contact them, they ask for money in return. A lottery is designed to give you money, not the other way around. When you usually buy a lottery ticket, it's only a few cents or dollars out of your pocket. No one just gives you a ticket out of the blue.

    They usually give you a check that you try to cash and when you do cash it and give the other party your money for "fees", the check comes back as fake, and you are stuck paying all sorts of penalties that go along with trying to cash a bad check!

    Please, please, PLEASE do not let yourself get scammed.
