Ya right… PLEASE don’t be fooled by these spammers. Don’t even reply to tell them how much you hate their spam!
Don’t you just LOVE these emails… I started using them as a “positive” thing.. In LOA the more you visualize something the more it becomes real to you.. So Print these emails and then read them every now and again.. and as you visualize receiving that kind of money.. just visualize a legit way of getting it. 😉

I guess I must be one of the luckiest people in the world – with all the money that has been left to me by relatives I have never heard of and lotteries I have won. I love FFTonya’s advise on printing these emails out and visualising what to do with the “winnings”. I am a firm believer of ‘what you see and believe you will achieve’.:-))
Love your blog Ros and your handbook is starting to look tattered by constant review. I’m sure your not getting too bored by being house bound.
These people are just unbelievable, I get the email every time
Shawn Drewry says
I just ignore those bastards. Are you going to CJU this year by the way Ros? 🙂
I’ll be there…:-)
These are the kind of things that have given my country Nigeria a bad name.

I’m must be the luckiest in the world…
I won 2 lotteries I never even entered and THEN inherited 13 BAJILLION dollars for transferring money for the Kings, Brothers dying Sisters Nephews Uncle in Nigeria!
The Wheelchair Bound Guru…

I also got three in 24 h from Yahoo! that claimed that I Had Won! millions of dollars in lottos I had never even heard of let alone entered! They came from a church in Ireland of all places. They must have an internet cafe in their basement of something. I was concerned that the elderly people, like my mother and her friends would think it was real as it claimed to come from Yahoo! Digging into it proved that it came from Nigeria again. I’m getting tired of these, sometimes there are five or six of them per day in my mail box, and none of them ever go to the spam box.
Micheal Savoie says
You mean, you really didn’t win? I was just getting ready to remind you that we are long lost relatives and that I was coming over to live with you for an extended vacation…
Oh, well, change of plans… I will head over to Ken McArthur’s Impact Boot Camp instead…lol!
Have an amazing day!
Eric Nagel says
Maybe if they told me I just won $500 I’d believe them (well, maybe the first email). But after winning millions of dollars (and pounds, and euros) dozens of times, it just gets old.
Yep, they can be pretty ridiculous. Just a suggestion, I use Gmail and have for the last 2 years and out of over 2000 spam messages, only 1 got into my inbox. I highly recommend not just for that but you never have delete anything and if there is something you need to find, just search for it or star it.
