Mrs. Helen Van Patt

We are pleased to inform you the result of the Microsoft Outlook Award Lotteries, held on the 7th Sept. 2006.

Why should I care?

Your e-mail address attached to ticket #: 4434/2113-78 with prize # 83429/2 drew €1,000,000.00 which was first in the 2nd class of the draws.

I suppose that’s better than being second in the 1st class of the draws.

You are to receive €1,000,000.00 (One Million Euros).

One Million Euros? How much is that in real money? 🙂

Because of mix up in cash payouts, we ask that you keep your winning information confidential until your money (€1,000,000.00) has been fully remitted to you by our accredited pay-point bank.

Pretty sloppy operation you have there, if you ask me.

This measure must be adhere to avoid loss of your cash prize – winners of our cash prizes are advised to adhere to these instructions to forestall the abuse of this program by other participants.

You are going to lecture me about abuse?

It’s important to note that these draws were conducted formally, and winners are selected through an Internet ballot system from 60,000 individual and companies e-mail addresses the draws are conducted around the world through our Internet based ballot system.

What the hell kind of business plan is that?

We congratulate you once again. We hope you will use part of it in our next draws; the Jackpot winning is 2, million Euros.

Remember, all winning must be claimed not later than 20 days.
