  1. I got this exact message from these scammers today
    4/3/2012 at 12:34am. It is apparent they play on the greed of unsuspecting people to fulfill their own greed. Beware of these guys. They are nothing nice. CD

  2. I received the same email just the other day. I wrote them back and told them that I knew it was a scam but they insist that they are legit. They wanted me to send 890 euros so they could send me the Western Union transaction code to transfer the money to me...YEAH RIGHT!!! If you win money you never have to pay money first to receive your winning.
