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!

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

FROM: GRIMHELM WORMTONGUE

DUNLAND

Dear sir and/or madame,

Salutations, I am GRIMHELM WORMTONGUE, The son of late Counsellor
Grima Wormtongue of the Kingdom of Rohan.

My father was Chief Counsellor [equivalent to Prime Minister] to late
lamented king Theoden of Rohan. In his position my father altogether
legally and correctly acquired significant assets throughout Rohan in
order to protect the Kingdom from enemy forces within and without.

In the course of lamentable events succeeding, my father was
illegally deprived of office and expelled from the Kingdom.
Before this he had with foresight already entirely legally deposited
the sum of M.500,000,000,000 in gold with the Bank of Gondor (Minas Tirith).
While in exile in the north he was assaulted and murdered by a band
of northern pigmies. His family was obliged to seek refuge in northern
Dunland among some of our sympathisers.

My father left to me all documents necessary to retrieve the sum of
gold aforesaid from the Bank of Gondor (Minas Tirith). However, in
the current political circumstances my solicitor believes it unwise
for me to attempt to make the trip from Dunland to Minas Tirith, and
has recommended that I seek a trustworthy foreign business partner
into whose account this money could be tranferred. This appears to
be the best option as we are unable to open an account in Dunland.
Therefore we are seeking your trustworthy assistance and cooperation.

You will provide information about your account that will enable a
deposit to be made in your name. I will contact the Bank of Gondor
(Minas Tirith) and inform them that the money is to be placed into
your account. Upon completion of the transaction your share of the
proceeds will be 15% net following deduction of all transfer fees,
that is M. 75,000,000,000. If the transaction goes well we also look
forward to maintaining you as a profitable business partner for
future ventures.

It goes without saying that I can expect your complete confidence and
secrecy in keeping this matter under wraps prefatory to completion.

Please reach me at my email address: mbrandybuck@buckland.net

Thank you and ERU bless.

MR. GRIMHELM WORMTONGUE.
