I don' t have much to say about my self now but am over excited.

I am very grateful to you for the interest shown in my plight and I want to assure you that you will be greatly rewarded for what you have chosen to do. Although we know each other for the first time but I believe our father has directed me to you as I prayed and searched over the internet for assistance because I saw your profile on a list of registered email addresses provided to me by Microsoft list from which I picked you.

We decided to donate Individuals and i told some Ministers about this which they said was a welcome idea and promised they will get me a list of some people who can help others with my donation and a smile in the face of the needy, i decided to select my self by going to Microsoft and Google to make a research.

I decided to elope to United Kingdom with my family because, since i won this lottery different taxes have been fallen upon me and much are coming, my pastor and my able minister' s of God advice me to move to united-kingdom with my family rather than paying Tax each week.

My donation may not be much to you but i believe it will go a long way to improving your standard of living like my Powerball Jackpot to me, I would like you to fill the below and return back to me and my entire household will be glad for you to visit us after my donation gets to you.

    Wow I got the same message 2 or 3 days ago I'm glad I Googled it, I was not going to send out my information, it's to personal when asking questions about my Occupation and stuff like that crazy. ~

    Got one from labittinger11@gmail .com today... Knew was a scam mostly because was a text to me from a Gmail. Unless you can email to phone numbers now... The only way they could message me is via knowing the exact email of my SMS text service. So obviously a scam hacker with too much time and a lot of PC power. ~

    pque74@outlook .com that's the new email it is coming from.

    I also got one from aLmontag@conestogac.on.ca telling me to email the outlook express for more info on the donation.

    They are saying 750,000 now. Want all my personal info. I have failed to comply with the demands but they continue to email.

    Don't reply to an email that says donation was made to you kindly contact pque74@outlook .com.

    That's what I did and the emails are steady flowing.

    If it's too good to be true, it usually is. ~
