I'm a winner!

I don't recall entering the British Lottery, but somehow I won anyway. Notification came in the form of the e-mail.

"You won the sum of £1,000,000.00 GBP from our monthly sweepstakes,youare hereby advice to get back to us,Email:lotterybritish147@yahoo.se"

I believe this e-mail to be official. Typos aside, it uses "hereby" and only really important documents contain this word.

Coincidentally, I also won the Irish lottery. I almost missed out of this lucky fortune because my Hotmail account marked it as junk. Can you believe the nerve?

So now that I'm a £1,000,000.00 GBP winner, I'm all jittery inside. I can't figure out how should I spend my winnings. Got any advice for me?

Congratulations on your double win! I have also had such a mail recently, and I can't help feeling a brief flurry of joy even though I know it's rubbish.

Hey, I got a check in the mail from some Grand International Lottery or something and it was for $40k or so -- some amount that I really would have liked. I decided to call the bank and research it online, I too never entered. The bank was difficult to deal with -- they didn't seem to get that I was trying to avoid cashing a check that was illegally written. Trying to protect them. Eventually they told me to pitch it or send it to some part of the government that was investigating.

To claim your winnings Diane, you must provide information to a bank in Nigeria....

But if you get yours first, buy me a pony.

I had the same thing for 316,000 pounds sent to me here in Canada. Be warned, they're out to get your information. Sad really, that money would have come in handy!!!
