This scam mail is similar to our earlier publish related to “South Africa 2010 World Cup bid held in Zurich, Switzerland“, except for some changes in numbers and awards money.

We can’t be bothered if they are really bidding for the World Cup. But based on the reputation and from the security point of view, I doubt that anybody would be particularly interested in the World Cup if it is going to be held there. Someone will lose lots of credibility if the decision was made to hold the World Cup in South Africa.

No, you did not win US$2million. The mail below is a 419 scam.
