Received the Australian Lottery message.

This is definately rediculous how they try to scam people. Now I didn't fall for it, but what about the people who are in need of money and actually believe it? Now I'm not rich by any means and I'm raising 2 disabled children. To someone in that situation it would be really sad to see them lose their money to these vultures! Something has to be done, they need to be caught.
