    Let me see you face losing all the money in your bank account after you give them some of that info.

    It is a scam, just look up internet scams, did you buy a ticket in this lottery, of course not, you get an email and you believe it,? Come on now please.

    And it even says bank in nigeria, where 99 of the internet scams come from?

    If you want to give away all your money that fast, just send my church some, we need money to help the needy.

    I hate to add that it is a scam. All email in that respect should be sent to the police on email fraud. Don't fall for it.

    Never give your personal and bank ID in response to an email or phone request.

    This is a scam. I receive at least one per month, just like the one you received. Delete it without even reading it.

    Did you buy a ticket? That's usually a clue - I have won lotteries (according to E-mail) when I don't even have a ticket. Imagine if I really did have a ticket!

    My mailbox is full of people who are going to send me a check and I am going to deposit it and take a 10% commission and then mail the balance to someone someplace because they like me and can't wait to make me this offer.

    And prayer chains - last I heard I will be struck by lightning if I don't forward the prayer to 10 people within 15 minutes.
