RE: YOUR PRIZE NOTIFICATION.
This is to inform you that in the lottery drawn on the 20th of May and recently released, your email address won a bond covered lump sum of US$2 Million. Your winning prize (US$2 M) was from a total cash pool of US$10 Million shared among five lucky winners. The lottery is a promotional programme co- sponsored by a major software provider aimed at encouraging Internet users. All participants were selected through a random computer ballot system drawn from over 50,000 company and 500,000 individual email addresses all over the world.
1. You are required to keep your winning private from public notice until you receive your US$2 Million. This is part of our security protocol to avoid disclaimer and unwarranted abuse of the programme by participants. An instance was the disclaimer to the lump sum lottery winning prize of US$162M in USA in January, 2005. The disclaimer later apologised publicly (our source: CNN). We do not want to experience this ugly situation.
2. As an Internet user, your email address is qualified for the lottery draw.
