    Yep this sounds about right. They are going to send me $4 million after I send them $500 to open the offshore account. I sent the $500 a few weeks ago, but they haven't sent me the 4 million yet which is a problem as I've just ordered a new yacht and the first payment is due on the 1st... :D

    Pure scam...Just delete any that ask for your full details, as if you had won anything they would have thse already and not ask you for them again. There are millions of these scam emails floating around like this even perporting to be from reputable companies and banks.

    This is definitely a scam; but would be a good method to get people to sign up for a cpa offer.
