Okay, let me make this perfectly clear: 


Okay I’m getting tired of this!  Stop asking me if this is real!  Stop asking where the money is!  Stop posting your damn phone numbers! It’s a SCAM, there IS NO money, these are thieves!  Get it through your thick skulls that you didn’t win ANYTHING!

I keep getting comments here saying that people have gotten SMS texts about this scam and asking if it’s true.  People, stop asking stupid questions!  For the last time, it’s not true, it’s a scam!  Don’t post here asking, just read the comments of everyone else!

    • I’m sorry, but you’ll never see any of your money again, because this was a fraud from the start for the express purpose of stealing money from you. You should have known from the start this was a fraud when you won a lottery that you never entered. If you had looked at the return addresses, they were all from free e-mail services like gmail, AOL or yahoo. You are the reason these people keep doing this scam and bothering the rest of us. I’m sorry you got scammed, but your own greed did it to you.
