    okay not a virus, only scam / spam

    Locked

    by jaqui ·

    new scam spam email going around:

    this one actually took a couple of hours to track down enough info to say yup it’s a scam.
    ( besides obviousness in subject )
    then I decided to play nasty.
    reported, with email to both companies that could be negatively affected, as well as scamorama.

      You’ve ruined it for us all now. Didnt you read that they wont entertain cases of multiple claims processing! I was going to claim with that winning ticket number too. All they wanted was a small processing fee up front….

        How am I ever supposed to retire unless I can send them, let’s say, $10,000 in order to receive a million dollar prize? I guess I’ll just have to keep working now.
