I recieved this email today. To tell the truth, I actually found it quite funny. I don’t know which hater sent it to me, but I will admit it was quite realistic. One thing I WOULD advise in the future though, don’t create something like that using Google Docs, as it shows up very clearly in the message that it came from there.

I’m no expert, but I’m guessing real Lottery Companies wouldn’t use Google Docs to write a letter to their Lottery winner. Also, if there’s a real company, the email addresses of its employees would probably be from the company website, in the case of this “letter”, probably something along the lines of “@uknationallottery.net” or something like that, not from gmail.
Also, it would probably be flawlessly done, ahd there would be spaces between all the words. In particular, I noticed that in one sentence, it reads, “thefollowing”, and not “the following”. I also noticed “.To file for your claim,Do contact”, which or incorrect, since there is a capital that’s not for a proper noun or at the beginning of a sentence, and there is not space after the period, before the “To”.
Another thing I noticed was that after the “required info”, there were lines, for example,
Address:_________. In all of the letters and emails from companies i’ve seen asking for personal information before, there was no line after the “necessary” personal information. (Believe me, I know, because I get a lot of similar spam at my other email address). I also wondered why some of the “required information” was in caps and some was not, ex: “FULL NAMES:” and “City:”
Anyways, this was actually quite funny, I applaud whoever came up with that and took the time to write it. That’s pretty creative, though I did wonder why a UK company would be affiliated with a US email server/address, but I did laugh really hard after I read this.
Either way, that was pretty hilarious, good job to whever sent it. If I really WAS a typical, shallow, Twitard teen girl, I probably would have believed it!
Anyways, just wanted to share, see if anyone else got any laughs from it.
