    "Rememer, all winning must be claimed not later than 15th June,2006."

    With his impressive spelling and grammar skills, I can't believe I waited this long! Where do I sign??

    I'm surprised that these things are still going around. The only reason that they would be, is if some hapless dope managed to fall for it. Now that would be a sad day...

    By the way, has anyone ever tried to contact the senders? I thought about giving one a call, and playing along for a while, but then I spooked myself out of it.

    I'd love to hear what they have to say though..

    There are sites who play along with the scammers and get them to do really stupid stuff to show their sincerity. They're hilarious!

    I get about ten of those emails a day. To my knowledge I have won the Dutch National Lottery about a thousand times.

    People do fall for it. If nobody fell for it, they wouldn't do it.

    Wonder if there's a black-list of the scammed going around?? Would be a good mailing list...
