hmm got an e-mail saying ive won 1,000,000 pounds from a yearly program but its been put in my junk e-mail box.
Its asking for my full name, address, sex, mobile number and nationality.

Scam? or has my day jus got good lol. a mean the only stuff it can take money off from that is by taking money off my phone?

Anyway what do we reckon, tempted to report it as a phising scam

    A lot of these lottery / prize draw / dead relative scams make money by a) trying to pinch useable bits of your identity and b) giving you a UK number to call which forwards to a high rate number out of the country (last I heard the going rate was up to £18 for a minute).

    I got one uesterday from 'Microsoft' claiming that I'd 'one' (their language) the Windows XP promotional draw and the Bill Gates himself was going to give me £950,000.

    Easiest thing to remember is if you haven't entered you can't win and don't give them ANYTHING.
