The message below is a standard type of lottery scam message, sent randomly to thousands of people around the world. If you make the mistake of replying to it, the scammer will tell you that your (non-existent) winnings are ready to be delivered as soon as you pay a “transfer fee” or “lottery tax” or some such thing. And then if you make the bigger mistake of paying this advance fee, the scammer will disappear with your money, never to be heard from again.
