I got your response and I like you to know that this is not a hoax because we did a personal search for the people we contacted. Your contact was submitted to me by Google Management Team and you received this email because I have shortlisted you as one of the lucky recipients. I and my family are grateful to almighty for this fortune and i thank him so much for the smiles he has put on our faces, so in turn I have decided to put smiles on the faces of other people.
You see almighty works in miraculous ways, You may be wondering why you received the email, i know this is funny to you right?,I check my ticket online after the drawing and was in shock at what I saw, I said to myself these look like my numbers I tried to remain calm and didn’t sleep the rest of the night, I know you would be wondering in your heart and mind if this is for real but don't panic it is well.

This is a life time opportunity and 100% legitimate, I have decided to make sure this is put on the Internet for the world to see, I am not getting any younger You see after taken care of the needs of my immediate family members, I decided to donate the remaining of the million (USD) to other individuals around the world in need, the local fire department, the Red Cross, Haiti, hospitals in Truro where Ricky my Son underwent his cancer treatment, and some other organizations in Asia and Europe that fight cancer, Alzheimer's and diabetes and the bulk of the funds deposited with the payout Bank, the payout bank of this charity donation. We have kept just 40% of the entire lottery sum to our self for the raining day.
You don't have to be skeptic about this as this is not a scam, it is absolutely a blessing from God, I believe i am doing the right thing in deciding to put smiles on the faces of other people by reaching out to some individuals, the less privileged ones and charity organizations too.

Remember, once they (scammers) have received their potential victims' personal information, they will use the information to trick the potential victims into sending money, which they will claim is for some advance fees, which will cover banking and transfer costs, insurance payments or tax that the potential victims need to pay before they can receive the so-called donated money. But, if the victims send their money, the scammers will steal it and may continue to trick the victims into sending more money, with the promise of receiving the donated money the scammers claim they would receive.
Recipients of the Robert Bailey lottery donation scam emails are asked not to respond to or follow the instructions in them. They should just delete the email messages instead.
It is important to remember that when someone contacts you, claiming that you have won the lottery or you are the recipient of millions of dollars, and asks you to send money in order to receive your lottery winnings or prizes, it is a SCAM. Legitimate lottery companies will never ask their winners to send money in order to receive their prizes or winnings. And, why would lottery winners who are allegedly donating millions of dollars to you, want you to send a few hundred or thousand dollars for banking and transfer costs, insurance payments or tax? Well, the money that the scammers want the victims to send, which the scammers claim is for taxes, bank transfer cost, insurance or other expenses, is what the scammers will steal. And, the victims, on the other hand, will never receive the winnings, prizes or money that they were promised.
So, once you are asked to send money in order to receive money, it is a scam.
