    Just got this email. I don't remember entering this but 5 mil is nothing to sneer at. I'm shocked that they didn't want my bank account number but I'm sure that will come next. Don't know who those other rons are... they must have gone through the alphabet trying to find me. :)

    Just a suggestion, but you might want to edit your email address out of your opening post. ;)

    If you want to show your appreciation of this advice, a couple of grand wouldn't go amiss. Sir.

    I already did, a second after I posted it... Don't know who those other email address are... they are not mine.

    I bet the above email was sent to thousands and thousands of gmail accounts.

    Protip - That may well be a scam. Never give out your details to someone over the Internet that claims you won a prize. Specially a prize you never entered.

    Spend it on a bigger penis. You should receive an email offer regarding this very shortly. No pun intended.

    With all that cash, I can get you several cases of some penis enlargement pills and the super stamina extract, for all those babes and mail order brides that are going to throw themselves at you.

    Over the top sarcasm at its best. I read any replies that don't "get" the gag in the voice of "comicbook guy" from the Simpsons or for the nostalgic "Cliff Claven" from Cheers. If I'm reading him right, emails like these are so annoyingly stupid, you just want to run out and tell the world how stupid they must think you are... sometimes. :D

    This should have been a clue for you guys.
    Yes, it might be some kind of a scam. But it's from a foreign country, so you know it's legit.
    Funny, if the OP were serious. Not funny, because you just don't get it.

    :(
    Come on guys...

    Ya know what you should do with that money? You should help all those poor Nigerian Princes out in trying to get out of their country. I've got about 18 emails from them, I can pass those along and you can help them out. kthnx

    I'll PM you more details about my bank account.

    :eek: Jokes aside, it could be a fraud attempt. These people may not always originate from Nigeria and could be an attempt to trick you. Be careful, OP in your decision.

    what I get a kick out of is that your verified and even sometiems by the FBI no less but they always need your info. does that even make sense? the really stupid ones still include Nigeria info in them. \but just think without these scams Nigeria would cease to exist.

    There is a serious lack of recognition by the people in this thread of what was written as a joke. :eek:

    Ya think? :D

    Just a hunch, but it seems most don't read posts completely before replying.

    Again, just a hunch. :D
