Seems someone i have never heard of in an African country i also have not heard of, tells me i have won his states lottery of over $15 million. If i send £250 i can claim all the money.

Do these people really think i'm going to fall for a scam like this!
You have to be a few cards short of a pack to think it's for real.
But people do fall for it all because of greed!!!!

If you haven't received a Nigerian 419 scam email, you haven't lived!

I'm more than elated with my National/Euro double win last weekend, £10 on the National & £12 on the Euro.

What's the odd on getting both? Mind you the day job will have to grind on a while yet...

who has never had a scam email from Nigeria?
Had a few 'Viagaras' though, passed them on to a friend in England, as he sucks them in order to get his English stiff upper lip. (;-)

I got one today too, its been a while.

I sent off my £250 of course. I'm sure this time they will send me my £10,500,000. I think they forgot too last time.

You should reply saying you only have £150, can you owe them the rest until you collect your winnings.
