Thanks for the warning, and hopefully it will help those not so net savvy.
For those that are very net savvy, it's as old as houses, along with the Dr Umbegwumba Choo Choo emails stating that he has just stumbled on 429,385329,259257395,234 dollars and wishes to give it to you.
And the Netherland lottery (which is very very similar to this one).

They simply use posh words, technical phrases, legal jargon, and the promise of money to tap into the recipients greed, and rip them off.

Regards
