International Lottery Scams
thought I share this: “Congratulations! You may receive a certified check for up to $400,000,000 U.S. CASH!
One Lump sum! Tax free! Your odds to WIN are 1-6.”

“Hundreds of U.S. citizens win every week using our secret system!
You can win as much as you want!”
Sound great? It’s a fraud.

Scam operators — often based in Canada — are using the telephone and direct mail to entice U.S. consumers to buy chances in high-stakes foreign lotteries from as far away as Australia and Europe. These lottery solicitations violate U.S. law, which prohibits the cross-border sale or purchase of lottery tickets by phone or mail.

Still, federal law enforcement authorities are intercepting and destroying millions of foreign lottery mailings sent or delivered by the truckload into the U.S. And consumers, lured by prospects of instant wealth, are responding to the solicitations that do get through — to the tune of $120 million a year, according to the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.

For some priceless entertainment you should visit the 419 Eater forum where some very skilled people engage the scammers and get them to go on wild goose chases (they call them safaris) all over Africa and lead them on sometimes for many months by playing roles created just to entice the scammers, and all the while they post real-time updates.
