Hmm I haven't seen one of these in awhile. It appears as though the scammers are getting desperate. Apparently they can't make us believe we've won something from Microsoft, Blackberry, Coca-Cola, Yahoo, Shell (which you haven't), or any other corporation, so they're moving offshore. Rest assured, though, this is still a scam. No lottery and no company anywhere in the world chooses "winners" by e-mail address or phone number.
Coke has their promotion every now and then in which you can win free bottles of their products, for example. Shell might give away some free fuel every once in awhile. But no company anywhere in the world has "promotions" in which they give away millions of dollars to individual people. Such "promotions" are known as philanthropy, which is an acceptable advertising gimmick.
In other words, corporations are not going to give away money if they cannot make more money while they're at it. Why would they? They wouldn't; it doesn't make any sense.
In the United States, it is illegal to play foreign lotteries, according to U.S. Postal Inspector Guy Cottrell. Additionally, it is illegal in many jurisdictions to play their lotteries unless you are a resident of that jurisdiction, such as the United Kingdom. In short, if you did not go out, and drive down to your local store to buy your very own paper lottery ticket that you can hold in your hand, then you did not win. There are no exceptions. Period.
