I am rich!!! or am I ??

For the past 3 days I have won 3 lotteries, one for 2 million pounds, another for 1 million pounds, and the last for 1.5 million pounds.!! (All these happened after I made public my email address on my blog). Now I dont even have to save for my kids, I will be able to give them each a GCB (good class bungalow - in Singapore - ie bigger than 15000 sq feet in prime district, despite the rocketing prices)and a great big fat bank account.

Has my luck suddenly changed? or is it too good to be true? I think poor hubby still has to be slave to his job to bring bacon home for the table.

These are probably part of those scams we read about. I wonder why they dont get sued, esp since they use the names of big companies (one of them used the famous coke name!)If you have not won yet, below is a sample email which I received from one of them.

Guess it is back to the Singapore Sweep and Toto for me to strike it rich!

I just received a nice card via post inviting me to attend a presentation about a "Marriott Vacation Club". The presentation, which lasts 90 minutes, is to be conducted in Ngee Ann City, I think. Minimum income to qualify is $5000 pm. Must be between 30-70 years' old if married, 38-70 years' old if single. If attached or married, must attend with partner, blah, blah, blah...

My reward just for attending the presentation? 2D/1N stay in the Ritz Carlton Hotel or $200 Takashimaya shopping vouchers. Even though the gift is not very attractive, I still don't want to attend the presentation because the terms and conditions sounded too similar to what I've described here (read the 3rd story in the article). At that time, they even said that my wife won a car! Haha.

I was going to say, can share or not? When I have spams like this, I just delete them. :)

I also need 4D and TOTO to strike it rich, man! They never "come and find me" ...:(

Hi Victor
Those are the time shares that use hard sell tactics. They really pressure u into buying. Attended one many years ago when time shares were 1st introduced, and almost signed on the line (coz we used to travel quite a bit then). Luckily the Lord was watching over us, and at the last minute we decided against it. Phew!

Yes Judy,
that was what I should do, but since I read so much about it, I really wanted to see what lies they spun.

Tigerfish
even 4d and toto not easy. the most I have got from toto was a measly $20!!
