I do agree with all of them who have undergone the pain. I have been receiving e-mails from many a fraud lottery companies, but till date, I haven't responded to anyone of them. Anyways, once I have gone through the entire content of this website, it has made my doubts to become a stronger belief, and I wish that everyone who has received this e-mail, should take action against these pranksters.

Its hightime now, and the cybercrime should take some evasive action against these who are sending these types of e-mails(don't know what fun do they derive by making fun of others sentiments?)
Remember, nothing is free. Dont wait to get lucky (for free???)... do something to get that money. Never believe in lottries.
i actually dont believe but still doughtful..i wish it would be true and if it is so plz...do inform me and even if it is not ...plzzzz...do inform me...
