Dai the Scammer

The closest thing the National Bank of Wales has to an armoured car stands by to deliver my winnings

Holy crap! I have apparently just won the Welsh National Lottery:

Dear Winner
We happily announce to you the draw (#954) of the WALES & UNITED KINGDOM NATIONAL LOTTERY, online Sweepstakes International program.Your e-mail address attached to ticket number: 013-2316-2002-577 with Serial Number: A025-09, Drew lucky numbers: (13)-(43)-(06)-(15)-(02)-(40) bonus # (09). which consequently won in the 2nd category. You have therefore been approved to claim a total sum of £1,000,000.00 (One Million Pounds Sterling) ...."

This might be the first fictitious lottery I have ever won that I have never bought a fictitious ticket for, and certainly it's the first where the prize will not really be presented by Prince Charles!!! One request though, rather than jug ears can his neice Zara Philips not really present the prize? I mean, she's a minx, and no mistake! If we are going to live in a world of fantasy and the easily duped, can you make this one concession to your new 1 million pound winner, Mr. "Very Bad At Being A Con-man" Man?

I think I'm going to spend some of my fake money on a fake Jaguar E-Type.

I am simply appalled at this scam, I mean we would never have a "WALES & UNITED KINGDOM NATIONAL LOTTERY, online Sweepstakes program", but rather a "WALES & UNITED KINGDOM NATIONAL LOTTERY, online Sweepstakes programme"

It's just lazy. There is simply not the calibre of fraudsters about these days.

Mondale you are one of my oldest friends in the world. Therefore I would lend you anything... except money.

Bruv, it makes me nostalgic for the days of corrupt Nigerian finance officials on the lookout for an offshore bank account.
