Lottery Winning!!!!

Yay! I finally won a lottery. Yup the big one!! Unfortunately, it came in the form of an e-mail and I never bought a ticket and it's one of those scams that come to me daily either in the form of weekly letters from Nigeria that some Prince or some relative that died in Nigeria left me anywhere from 1 - 6 million dollars and bank mortgages that finally got approved from Citicorp and now this:

Heh heh. They told me to keep this confidential. Why should I? I'm so fucking rich after all the Nigerian money that I have and this lottery winning and the lottery winning in Euros that I won yesterday, I can't even count how much I have. I could feed all the Palestinian refugees in this country. I'm richer than Suha Arafat. Why am I still working???? Who the hell is sending all this shit out???

What if I really really REALLY won something though, and they notified me somehow. I probably wouldn't believe them.
