The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I've just received this little beauty. No way I'm going to fall for it - I know where Shell's head office really is, as my other half used to work there.

    I'll paste the whole thing in case any of you want to have a bit of fun today.

  2. Lokks legit to me :)

    What I can´t see is what they get out of it :?
     
  3. Think anyone who replies to a lottery win from someone who has a hotmail account should get all they deserve!!
     
  4. I love the phrase "Great British Pounds"

    The really sad thing is that somebody will reply.
     
  5. I just did, and will be 1 millyun great pounds richer as soon as I cough up the 500 poonds for "processing".

    Jokes on you guys - suckers :)
     
  6. They obviously want the information so that they can check that the winners are real and not from any old web-site that someone may have posted their original e-mail on!
     
  7. Love it! Ha - a claims agent with a hotmail account....heh heh
     
  8. assuming that was not a wah, they get enough information to steal your identity and use it for various criminal activities.
     
  9. How can I enter???????????????
     
  10. I bait quite a few of these lottery scams - from memory the address is the legitimate address for the National Lottery, the lazy fecker couldn't even change his email template with a new fake address...
