WINNING NOTIFICATION FOR USING THE INTERNET. We are pleased to inform you that one of the best things that can happen to any Internet user is to be rewarded for spending money and time on the Internet. You may not have known that over one hundred billion people daily surf the Internet on regular basis for one reason or the other. These Internet users all over the world including you, pay access fees to various Internet Service Providers (ISP) that in turn remit surplus funds to the numerous World Wide Internet Technology Companies (WWITC) for the development and advancement of Global Information Technology. So much money is generated from people like you for using the Information Superhighway (the Internet) without being aware of the enormous sum that goes to the stake holders (WWWITC). Without your patronage, this would not have been possible. After we conducted a research on this issue, we concluded that Internet users should be compensated. As a result, we embarked on a worldwide lottery promotion with a sophisticated automated database to randomly select E-mail accounts that frequently surf the Internet. Consequent upon this, your E-mail address was picked for a Category "A" Winner after an automated comuter ballot system with the following numbers attached. Batch Number: PW EH 9590 OG 0612 Ref Number: PA 563881545-NL/2007 You are therefore entitled to a cash prize of $2,500,000.00 (Two Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) from the total payout of One Billion US Dollars earmarked in the lottery for category "A" winners. Your prize award has been insured with your E-mail address, which qualified you for the lottery and will be transferred to you upon meeting our requirements, statutory obligations, verifications, validations and satisfactory proof of E-mail address ownership.
