    the lottery organization po box liverpool l70 inl that i have won us4.6 million and quite frankly it probably is a scam but they produce a website that seems quite authentic, they say that if i pay someone in dubai united arab emirates 250 us dollars that my claim will be processed and the certified cheque will be processed within 74 hours and on their website they include a tracker to inform you of the progress of that cheque. when i requested a phone number to establish this claim it was inoperative, so obviously this is pretty much a scam. altho i got to say the website they produced seemed quite authentic. i would like your comments . mike morgan
