    They'd be better off going through Facebook, which now has a well established track record for 'members' clicking anything, anytime, for any reason. :cautious:

    Unless it's a private email from the King of Africa (or one of his relatives), I don't respond to these messages anymore.

    Wow! With (more or less) everyone on the internet a winner, all that new disposable income should do wonders for the world's current economic woes. :D

    LOL, I wonder how much "Eight Hundred And Fifty Thousand Great British Pounds Sterling's" is in regular old British Pounds Sterling. Reading through the rest of it, perhaps you can simply donate your winnings to them so they can hire an English teacher, a proof editor, or both.:rolleyes:

    Two years ago I "WON" the European Horse race lottery and it was a tidy sum. $5.000.000 US dollars. I did reply and follow up after I contacted the FBI in Lawton Oklahoma. I went through the motions until it was actually time for me to send them money so the could hire a Courier to deliver my much deserved winnings. That by the way I never entered to win. I was contacted by the FBI again about three months after all of the routine was over and was told that with them working with the British authorities they did close down that particular scam. So I guess it can be done. But I sure do miss that $5.000.000 :oops:
