I HAD to share this.
Of all the Spam I've received over the years, this is the only one that made me laugh out loud, for real.
Look-at-this-cheese.




The email is in Spanish, the ticket in English and the phone number is from France.
HAHAHAHA.

Amazingly hilarious.

Only 250000€? These little amount of money looks suspicious
In a Gate(s) lottery I would expect to win more money.

Very funny!. But at the same time, scammers make these emails silly on purpose, because that acts as a filter itself. If one believes it, then it means he can be scammed alright (and probably deserves it ).

Spanish spam is great, really easy to detect.

noone is capable of writing it correctly, advantages of having a pseudo-complex language.


Last week I won lottery and when I went to the website I won a BMW because I was the winner 1.000.000 (not rly, they do not have websites )
