Announcement on Lotto Award of GBP 1.500.000.000In case of any doubt, I
believe the scammer means GBP $1.5 Billion Dollars of lottery award,
and not GBP 1.50.
Alright, this is the largest Lotto award in
history and we can’t find that anywhere in the news. Whoever receives
this award must be lucky, since he was selected from over 100,000
company and 50,000,000 individual email addresses and names from all
over the world. (or rather, the scammer has hacked over 100,000 company
to obtain 50 million email addresses). The interesting part is that
there is a mix up of numbers…
Frankly speaking, these are old tricks that have been used, exposed, and possibly on the news everywhere in the world even 5 years ago. Why are these guys wasting time on such useless crappy emails. In any case I hope that these archives will be around the internet in 10 years time and our children have a good laugh at the these shits.
From this article onwards, we have decided to provide some mail header information for any aspiring investigators, just for the fun of it.
