I'm Rich... Oh Wait, nevermind

Google you had been doing so well, how can you let me down now? I don't think I have received one of these special offers in a long time. Now what should I do with my winnings? There must be something I need? Hmmmm Maybe a new car or a trip? I just wish Mr. Walker include a phone number so we could expedite things. This just goes to show you that old adage is wrong "You can't win if you don't play"

Seriously folks this is a scam, they are phishing for you information. I'm actually surprised that it go through I haven't see one of these in a couple of year. I really miss the Nigerians they really had some creative writers employed with them, these guys barely tried.

Research Nigerian 419.

At this point these people are not after your information. They are screening for people who are complaint. Malleable. People who can be lead.

When you reply to the email in any form they know beyond a doubt they've 'got one' and then from there they lead you through more hoops until they scam you out of money, your identity, your credit, or other valuables.

"By sending an email that repels all but the most gullible, the scammer gets the most promising marks to self-select." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nigerian_scam

Your question marks you as "self-selected" since you are clearly trying to weigh the use of the information. I bet you already replied either with an abusive reply or worse, your info. Either way, you are labeled as someone who can be lead to respond. DON'T DO IT! Just delete the email.

BTW, USA is now the #1 source of these types of financial fraud scam emails, not Nigeria. This has got to stop. We are destroying the Nigerian economy. LOL
