They come in f'rom the Ivory Coast' too now ....there's no stopping them.  There must be some idiots out there who fall for it, otherwise why would they persist?

I won it too, and In the U.K. and Holland apparently - never entered or bought a thing. It's a hoax DON'T send your bank account details or they will deduct what they call a "government withholding tax" and you'll never see any winnings. I even telephoned Spain and asked them to deduct this from my winnings (having opted and crossed the box for "send my winnings by cheque" rather than giving my a/c details) and they replied not possible as these funds have to be paid directly to the government beforehand ha!ha! Up to you now to be stupid / greedy!

These are starting to arrive almost daily on my computer from one country or another - coming in as fast as the "Nigeria" letters - also a hoax to get your money and you don't get their percentage!
