It looks like I hit the big times and I'll be moving on up, and since I'm on the East side of the West side of the globe I thankfully won't have to move ;)
But although it says to keep it confidential, I felt I'd just have to share this with my online friends. I'm just too excited to fill it out just yet but considering it's on Yahoo I just might :D
Anyway I thought I should ask for your thoughts on my good fortune :D but I don't understand why I should win a prize when I didn't enter any contest. :eek:

The way I see it, with "Nelson Mandela (chairman.)" as President how could a person go wrong unless he voided the offer by posting it on a public forum.
Now what do you think of that?

I'm pretty sure he already knew that it is fake ;)

I get an average of 30-50 emails a day, and I'd say at least 15-20 are junk. Lotto emails like this one, the colorful pills Space mentioned, and lots of strange stock tips...:rolleyes:

Ah! yes I was aware it's a scam, but my thanks Steve for the warning, even around this neck of the woods scams come in daily, and it's sad to say a lot of people are still getting scammed. The whole thing is based on greed. The most dangerous one is the telephone call saying you won a vacation or a cruise, all you have to do is call a certain number in the Caribbeans to claim it. That call would cost $$$$$$$
We got a new twist to it today, all we were asked to do was dial 9 and hang up. Wow! I wouldn't want to get the bill for that one.
I wish I had the time to take this one further (scam the scammer) because it's wide open for a runaround.

I wish I knew how all those people found out.
Chip you had better talk to the only one who could tell :D

Yes I get those offers too usually on my eBay mail address, now at 72 years old I haven't figured out why I'd need them :D
Anyway here's the latest off my eBay email addy
