We are pleased to inform you of the result of the just concluded
annual final draws of Sachsen Lotto-GmbH Program.

Sachsen Lotto-GmbH draws was conducted from an exclusive list of
25,000,000 e-mail addresses of individual and corporate bodies picked
by an advanced automated random computer ballot search from the
internet as part of our international promotions program which we
conduct every year. No tickets were sold.

After this automated computer ballot, your e-mail address attached to
serial number 25-6565 drew the lucky numbers 6-13-18-24-33-39 which
consequently emerged you as one of first fifty (50) lucky winners in
this category.

You have therefore been approved for a lump sum payout of
€1,000,000.00 (One Million EURO) in cash credited to file
SL/06-GmbH/4009. This is from a total cash prize of €50 Million Euro
shared amongst the first fifty (50) lucky winners in this category.

This year Lottery Program Jackpot is the largest ever for Sachsen
Lotto-GmbH. The estimated €50 million jackpot would be the
sixth-biggest in Europe history. The biggest was the €363 million
jackpot that went to two winners in a Febuary 2000 drawing of The Big
Game Mega Millions' predecessor.

Your fund is now deposited in an offshore bank with a hardcover
insurance. Due to the mix up of some numbers and names, we advice that
you keep this award from public notice until your claim has been
processed and your money remitted to your nominated bank account as
this is part of our security protocol to avoid double claiming or
unwarranted taking advantage of this program by the general public.

booklet representative office in London. In view of this, your
€1,000,000.00 (One Million Euro) would be released to you by our

Ich weiß nicht so recht, was ich mit dieser Mail anfangen soll. GMail hat sie als Spam klassifiziert, was zwar meistens passt, aber auch nicht immer (ich habe schon ein Negativbeispiel dazu). Ich kann mich allerdings nicht erinnern, irgendwo dergleichen meine E-Mail-Adresse angeben zu haben. Komisch sind auch diese ""-Adressen. Mir kommt das ganze jedenfalls etwas suspekt vor.

Die Mail enthält übrigens keine Anhänge oder dergleichen, was meiner Meinung nach gefährlich sein könnte. Theortisch könnte es aber auch am "wunden Punkt in GMail-Adressen" liegen.
