Phony FedEx e-mail

A forum for posting "You have one the lottery" letters, and for asking whether the e-mail that your received is real (it isn't). Real lotteries do NOT advise winners by e-mail, and they do NOT require the payment of any fees up-front.

Gee, for $210 I will get $800Gs. And how swell that my unnamed "colleague" already paid the taxes, which must have been considerable .... how come the cheap bastard didn't also pay that $210 delivery charge?
I'd really be willing to pay that measly $210, but at present all my cash is tied up in helping a Nigerian widow sneak money out of her country.
