Dear Internet User,


I am 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 a regular basis for one reason or other. These Internet users
including yourself, pay access fees to various Internet Service Providers (ISP)
all over the word who 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 all over the World for using the
Information Superhighway (the Internet) without your being aware the enormous
sum that go to the stake holders (WWITC). Without your patronage, this would
not have been possible. After we conducted a research on the 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 Category "B" Winners.

After the automated computer ballot, your E-mail address emerged as a winner in
the category "B" with the following numbers attached Ref Number: EL-9318 ,Batch
Number: EL-9501 , Ticket number :EL-01135 and Serial number: EL-122692

You and other category "B" winners are therefore to receive a cash prize of
Three Million Eight Hundred And Fifty Thousand United States Dollars
($3,850,000.00) respectively from the total payout of One Billion US Dollars
earmarked in the lottery for category "B" 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.

To file in for the processing of your money, you are advised to contact our
certified lottery director for category "B" winners with the information below:

correspondence. (Ref Number: EL-9318 ,Batch Number: EL-9501 , Ticket number
:EL-01135 and Serial number: EL-122692),

You are to keep all lotto information confidential, especially your reference
numbers and the password of your E-mail address. Since we do not know you, if
