One more to add to the Lotto scam category. My good old “undisclosed-recipients” Email address was chosen out of 25 million other addresses. This is amazing! I just had to share this with you all.
All the tell tale signs of a scam, respond to a Yahoo address, a few spelling mistakes, a sense of urgency and no tickets were sold some Lottery!
It’s a scam, they are most likely looking for some advanced fees to cover taxes or lawyer fees or insurance costs. Don’t bit into this scam.
If you call the number thinking it in in the UK, you may be surprised to see that you will be forwarded to a number in Nigeria.

We are pleased to inform you of the result of the just concluded annual final
draws of the Bremer Lotto GmbH Program.
Bremer Lotto GmbH draws was conducted from an exclusive list of 25,000,000 e-
mail addresses of individual and corporate bodies picked by an advanced
automated random computer ballot search from the internet as part of our
international promotions program which we conduct every year. No
tickets were sold.
After this automated computer ballot, your e-mail address attached to serial
number 07-2724 drew the lucky numbers 7-14-17-33-40-42 which consequently
emerged you as one of first fifty (50) lucky winners in this category.
You have therefore been approved for a lump sum payout of 1,000,000.00 (One
Million EURO) in cash credited to file BL/Spiel-77/07-GmbH. This is from a
total cash prize of 50 Million Euro shared amongst the first fifty (50) lucky
winners in this category.

history. The biggest was the 363 million jackpot that went to two winners in
a Febuary 2003 drawing of The Big Game Mega Millions’ predecessor.
