    from among a group of "undisclosed recipients" for the following. I don't know about you, but I think I was chosen because I'm so loyal to MS..... :twisted:

    I can't wait to collect my prize. I don't quite know what a "sumof" is, or how I contact an email, but I'm sure gonna try.

    It's not an "email address" in that message that I'm supposed to contact, it's an "email". Period. I also haven't quite figured out what my "email id" is either, but for that kind of money I'm sure I can figure something out.

    All you have to do is pay £10,000 in order to release the prize fund. Bargain! :)

    Lucky man you are.
    I am even more lucky than you.I received an email a few day ago. Apparently i won 1000000$ for a Russian
    Lottery. All i have to do is send them 1000euro, and wait for the price.
    Being very lucky again, i am stuck here reinstalling a linux server. Most part of the root filesystem decided
    to move to the lost+found directory.
    Such a lucky man i am !!!

    ciao

    As I expected - 50ppm cost on that number. Which means I suspect that few people outside of the UK will get through as most international telcos avoid connecting to non mobile/geographic numbers.

    This is clearly intended to try and reap some money from the calls.

    Is it just me or has there been a mass increase in spam e-mails including the telephone number being "based" in the UK??? Probably the majority of the spam is no longer nigeria oil workers trying to get me to raid their national bank, but are people giving UK "based" numbers like the +447045736856 included here??

    Harry's right - it's going to cost you to phone them, but why choose this country? Is it because they are based here?

    I think more and more people are getting on the 'lets rip someone of' game, so instead of spam coming from Nigeria or Russia its more local than we all think.
