Yes, I just won 1000 000 $

Opened up my hotmailaccount and lo and behold some very impressively named gentlemen (Dutch names ? ) tells med the glorious news that I have just won one million dollar without even buying a lottery ticket. This shure is a wonderful world ! All I have to do is tell them some unimportant things in the beginning, and if I take the bait I guess I will have to pay a minor sum to have them transfer my enormous winnings. If I do that I fear that there will be further requests for necessary funds to transfer my million.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I wouldn't go for it if I were you. Soon they will want more personal information which would, in the end, lead to their stealing your account or your identity, for instance.
