More Lottery Winnings

I'm so glad that I just won $3.2 million dollars, in a lottery that I didn't enter or buy a ticket. I was surprised to see this in my Gmail inbox, they usually do a much better job at filtering SPAM. Yahoo on the other hand there was a time that I was seeing them once or twice a week. I guess, what I always find so humorous about them is the multiple email addresses, names of the people and the country which they are from. It looks like this one is from China. Anyway if you get one of these and haven't figured it out by now this is SPAM. They are on a phishing expedition for your personal information and money. If you don't believe me then be a dumb ass and reply , but don't come whining to me when they screw you over.
I hope that James and Patricia have a great weekend since I won't be replying to them, maybe they will read this blog. I'd rather take my chances with Mega-Millions at least a local school will benefit from my $3 dollars, I think the kitty is at $210 million (fingers crossed).

Update>>> I have gotten the impression that some people may have thought that I was promoting these crooks, I'm not. I'm trying to bring awareness that these people are criminals and this is a scam. If for some reason you did send any information to these crooks, I recommend going to FBI's IC3 (Internet Crime Complaint Center) website to report it here is the link . Don't be embarrassed, report it to the local authorities and take action to protect yourself.

I, too, got that same email and decided to see if there was any funny story behind it. Lo and behold it takes me to you, a gay blogger. The coincidence! :p

I get about 3 of these each day.
Sucks. Google is sure slipping, it was years since I got any spam at all.

I also received this notification and was very suspicious. I tried to find the source of this email and came up with nothing. This blog is the only thing I've seen that refers to this. It does seem very much like a phishing scam (and I did report it as such)and the name "winbestar" is very close to "winstar", which is an online casino- imagine that!
Thanks for posting your comments on this.
