I just had another one pop up just now in my "Junk Folder." It said that I just won $1,000,000 legally. The message said it was from the FBI. I guess I probably shouldn't have deleted it.
A few years ago a friend fell for the scam. They paid her with a certified, cashiers check. She mailed off the painting and the excess money they had sent. A couple months later her bank demanded the money back because the certified check was counterfiet.
A lady where my Son works, received notice that she won the Canadian Lottery but she had to pay a processing fee. My Son said "Do you remember entering the lottery"?
She replied "No but I won." She paid the processing fee and of course that was the last she ever hear of it.
