nice. Your round then.
I know that these go around ALL the time, however, what made me particularly laugh about this one, was the date when the draw was made!
Someone really should check their calendar, when they are sending out phishing attacks!!!

nice. Your round then.
I always knew I'd win the lottery on the 30th of February
Chop chop! You only have nine (9) days to collect your winnings.
You are incorrect.
It clearly states the following "You have been approved of the sum of GBP1, 500,000.00 POUNDS in cash"
and then goes on to say "This is from total prize money of GBP15, 000,000.00 POUNDS"
I love it how the Microsoft rep has a Gregcole_38@yahoo.com email address .... it adds sooooo much to the authenticity.
Do people really still fall for these emails? are people so stupid/gullible?
Its scary to think banks trust users online to do banking .... no wonder they lose so much money.
The postcode in Maps goes to Unite the Union, on Theobald's Rd Camden. Something there.
I was blinded by the £15,000,000!!!
Anyhoooo...I answered it and they said that all I had to do was send them £1500 and they'd send me the cheque.
Have done the bank transfer....just waiting for the £1.5m to come rolling in!
Apparently, the transfer will come from their Nigerian account.......
I like the MS co-operations bit.........
MICROSOFT CO-OPERATIONS UK;MICROSOFT CO-OPERATIONS ASIA;MICROSOFT CO-OPERATIONS USA
I do it for a number of reasons
1) The chance of winning ..... big or small.
2) TO reduce the amount of change in my pocket at that time ... I hate small change.
3) The good causes that benefit.
4) To pee everyone off at work should I win a job threatening amount of money.
You know your chances of winning the lottery are only slightly improved by buying a ticket?
Edit: Apologies for the temporal anomalies. My signature is playing up and you replied to a deleted post.
If that dont work out for you Matt has this advice.
I got this email of Sir Greg too... what are the chances!!! i needless to say replied straight away and should be receiving my cheque within two days
