after you get back to them they are going to want some money for "shipping insurance"

if you didnt enter into a lottery, it is a fraud.
Try not. do, or do not. There is no try!

You're joking right?

If you did'nt enter a drawing then how can
you win? When in doubt check the car maker's
web-site to see if a lottery was done. If it
is legitimate they will have the info there.

Re: I got this lotto confirmation in the mail. Tell me if its legitimate...
So, the OP askes for information, receives said information - which is "no, it's fake" - yet is STILL going to correspond with the sender.

OP: Unplug your computer, put it back in the box, take it back to the store for credit, and never never EVER get on the Internet again.

YOU are the reason that spam and scams propegate the way they do. You are so goddamn gulluble that when knowing users TELL you its fake, you close your eyes and don't listen to a damn thing.

Why the hell did you even ask ?!?! It is obvious your mind was made up to correspond with the scammers.

the reason y im inclined to believe its legit is because i used to own a 1985 505-peugeot in 1988-89. Only the dealer could have known this. It is possible i entered a contest and theyve been trying to track me down to give me the winnings.
