First, I never signed up for anything. According to their email I was randomly selected from an online database. I thought, "Wow, I won something I didn't even know I was entered for!"
"Participants were selected through a computer ballot system drawn from 2,500,000 email addresses of individuals and companies from Africa, America, Asia, Australia, Europe and the Oceanic as part of our International Promotions Program."
Second, which I found extremely amusing, they said that I've won 1000,000.00. I've never heard of 1000,000.00. I've heard of 1,000,000.00 but not 1000,000.00.
"You have therefore been awarded a lump sum pay out of 1000,000.00(One Million Euros only), which is the winning payout for Category "A" winners."
Third, I tried to respond to the email just to see what would happen, and I received my email back saying that it couldn't be sent. There's even a phone number that you can call. I didn't try that option, but I wonder what would happen if I gave it a try.
There's a lot of scams out there and the spam that is coming out nowdays is getting a lot harder to detect. I'm pretty computer savvy, so I'm sure that I'll be able to detect them. However, the average Joe who doesn't know a lot about computers could really fall for some of these scams. It's a shame, but I guess that's the way it is. There's always people out there that are more than willing to take advantage of others.
