FBI tells me the $10,000 I won will cost me ONLY $350

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.

None of the pics pasted. I wasn't able to find out much on lenovodo.net in my brief attempt to dig. WHOIS.net says it was registered by Adam lee Snuffer through Apptix, Inc.

I am sure the FBI has been "invited" to pay lots of these $3000 penalties. :whistle: :lol:

I wonder how many people don't realize blumail.org isn't the official FBI domain.
