Interesting email for the "claims agent": irishlottey@3mail.ie

Maybe the "irishlottery" name was already taken? Anyway fill out the form and send it back. Just to be helpful maybe include your bank account details and SSN, you don't want to delay the transfer of your windfall!

Actually posting the contents of those emails to this site will get the site flagged as a potential hackers / virus site from Mozilla, Google, etc... I would recommend deleting out the body text of the email.

Ooooohhh.... Burn!! ;) The money that has been given to me is really going to help my recovery a lot. There is absolutely no way that i could afford the private physio i need after i get out of gf strong to get me back to regular life again. I will also be able to afford a 6 month rec pass so i can swim and strengthen in the gym, and a 3 month climbing pass to strengthen my hip muscles and help me to enjoy myself a bit as i train to get back to the outside stone.

I need to be able to climb and carry ladders so i can do my job. All these things aren't easy for someone with a spinal cord injury. If i had a regular 9-5 job with full medical benefits i would wear out the physio benefits within ten visits at the most. Right now i need about four sessions a week. And i'm currently doing five. If i could drive i could go to squamish three days a week for sessions, and i will be able to do that eventually but the gas there and back is expensive too not to mention the toll on my body of driving an hour and a half every day.

Realistically it is going to be at least a couple weeks after i get out before i able to get myself down there reliably. Who knows? Maybe sooner?

Then long term i will be working so i won't have time to drive south every day for treatment. That is when the private physio is really going to come in handy, so i can do it at lunch and still make some money.

I know you were joking Nature, but i am really thankful for all the help that i have received here. Both morally and financially. It has and is going to make a huge difference in my recovery!

Really? I just thought it was a: funny and b: a good warning for others. This has happened before where people have posted links to bad sites which has caused people to get warnings..

There is only one legal national lottery in Ireland, the National Lottery and it does NOT use email to notify winners.--quote

They try it on Canadians last, you know!
