    Fake?????

    I received the following letter in my e-mail today. It was not a piece of junk mail, but addressed to me personally. Normally, I would just delete it but it was from an .edu e-mail address. Does anyone know anything about this? Here's the e-mail:

    I googled "National Online Sweeps email raffle", and there were a couple sites that said it was fake, and the people were really after your money.

    Mails like this often come from England and Africa, because of the big population of African immigrants living in England

    Never....EVER think anything that comes in an email is real.

    I got an email from "ebay" saying that I won an auction for some Carribbean Island and the seller is waiting on my $18,000,000 payment.
    Gee, I will Paypal that right away.

    Cojo, all you have to do is Google some key words in there and you will find out if it is fake (or just know that everything is fake)
