I got this very same scam-mail, dated May 25, on April 17. It's already on my website in the upper right hand column, listed Here. Apparently the free Japanese Yahoo e-mail address they want you to respond to hasn't been closed down yet. That's going to change very shortly, assuming I'm not ignored this time. The "identification numbers" haven't even changed, not even the name of the "claiming agent." They claim that some "promotions company" bought your ticket and played for you, in your name. If you did not go out to purchase your own lottery ticket, then you did not win. Yahoo does not run any "lottery" in conjunction with anyone, and no one notifies "winners" by e-mail address or mobile phone. Also see a lottery scam video from the BBC, posted Here. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You.
My name is Gary, and I live in the Midwestern United States. This site is intended to expose the frauds and scams that are so pervasive on the internet, especially today. One hundred per- cent of the e-mails you get that promise you millions are never, ever real. They'll tell you they're "dying," trying to gain your sympathy. They're not dying, they're lying. Click Here for the "Dying" scams. Don't fall for it, and never send them any money, no matter what they tell you. Oh, and good luck hacking this website. It's got a nice strong password on it.
