Google Online Promo © 2009

A Google-related Lotto Winning?

Dear Valued Customer,
Your e-mail have emerged as a winner of £500,000.00 GBP (Five Hundred Thousand British Pounds) in our on-going New Year Promotion.

Really? My email have?

I cannot believe my good fortune in having you extend the New Year Promotion to January 31st! You people must party like I do. Whoo-hoo! Oh, the booze and babes I will buy when I get my hands on that £5,000,000.00. It was millions, right?

Your Winning details are as follows: Computer Generated Profile Numbers (CGPN):7-22-71-00-66-12, Ticket number: 00869575733664, Serial numbers:/BTD/8070447706/06, Lucky numbers: 12-12-23-35-40-41(12).

Wait a minute, those are my actual Lucky Numbers. How did you figure that out? I have never told ANYONE what my lucky numbers are. I keep them only in my mind. How could you figure out my exact lucky numbers? I had formulated a scheme using a careful repetition of the number 12 in my lucky numbers. How could you know that?!

This HAS to be real! (When I was 12, I got 12 candles on my 12th Birthday cake! That's how I knew to have three 12s in my Lucky Numbers. It wasn't just a coincidence. I knew it was luck!).

Oh, and those Computer Generated Profile Numbers? (CGPN) That is just spooky. That is my exact Account Number with Lehman Brothers bank! How could you possibly know that?

Contact Mr. Francis Henson for more details through the contact below:

Mr. Francis Henson,

Another coincidence: I had breakfast with Mr. Francis Bacon, just this morning. This is crazy! I am so excited.

Awaiting your reply,

PS - I used to have dreams about a VD Boogaand when I was in the service in Taiwan... another coincidence?
