  • Fake lottery email/ spam

    I almost daily receive this fake email saying I won the lottery. The FBI said many others receive it as well. I would like to sue them or something if I could, for this constant spam.

    I suggest you string them along. Waste their time. I do, once in a while. It's a complete waste of time, but makes me feel a bit as if I'm getting them back!
