  • You name the country, they have the SAME email going around. Unless you have lived in Thailand and recall putting your name and email account in, its a scam!

    It's funny though, I get them all the time, the country name is changed.OR Ive inheirited something from family in South Africa I never knew I had had! 

    I have a new email account and I get those.....if you know its a can forward that onto yahoo.

  • I get notified that I have won the lotto in at least three different countries each week - funny thing is we don't play the lotto. Yep, it's more spam.
