Hehe, congrats YONG, you are now eligible to be ripped off by the classic advance fee fraud.

Simple rule: If it seems too good to be true then it probably is.

The Internet Police share the same headquarters as the Thought Police. Be sure to erase your mind before visiting them.

I would like to translate it but it is a so horrible Spanish that it is really hard. (Obviously it was translated automatically from some other idiom)

Do you have some spare napalm bombs to drop on them?

PS: BTW, I haven't removed any info, it really begins congratulating "" instead of "Mr. Loco" or whatever.

YONG,

you didn't seriously actually even believed this to be true, right? Right? Confused

I mean, how can you win something that you haven't even signed up for? Wink

It is a million bucks they are supposedly giving away but they don't even know how to write it properly:

1,000, 000, 000, 00
You would think if they are giving away millions they could afford to hire a proof reader for 5 minutes to check the email before sending.

But that is considered spamming, and actually, they can't even know the email address "across the world". If you signed up for it and randomly selected one from the sign ups, it would have been more plausible.

I mean how do they collect "email address from across the world"? Scan with spam bots? That's a bit ridiculous as there could be many wrong (invalid) addresses, and is illegal (or at least, spamming).

Points given for spotting any of the myriad of flaws in the above.

And to make matters worse, they sent it as CC (not BCC) to 20 different people, so it seems there are at least 20 "winners".

Another thing that popped up which I asked as a result of ongoing discussions was the use of all caps in writing. Some lads write all their e-mails in uppercase, now why do they do that? The answer was that it is easier to see what they wrote and what the victim wrote. It suggests that if you start writing in uppercase they would respond in lower case to keep clear who is saying what. This could be excellent stuff if you want to mess with their administration of scams. Just type uppercase one day lowercase the next. After a while he won't know who wrote what.
