This scam is the-all-time winner for creativity. Like all scams, it draws you in. Is it believable? It has all the aspects of being authentic.
Suppose you respond. Then, you’ll be asked for more personal information, until suddenly you’re like the ACCOUNTANT in nearby Idaho who did bite on a scam like this and lost all his retirement
income when he made many trips abroad to collect.
Here is today’s email scam: RWG wishes to notify you that your email account has been picked as a winner in the results of the September Royal Wings Gold Strike Email Program held in Bolton, Lancashire – United Kingdom on Saturday 8th, Sept. 2012.

Or, call to collect in person at our office due to your location or another reason, please send an email with details to firstname.lastname@example.org
