did you really got money

I also received the e-mail,but i belive it is lie of course. stupid thing. I have receiced an e mail tonight from " Platinum lottery International "

WHY WOULD ANYONE DO

WHY WOULD ANYONE DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT! THESE PEOPLE ARE CRUEL AND DESERVE TO ROT IN HELL. THIS IS NOT FUNNY TO PEOPLE WHO COULD ACTUALLY DESPERATELY NEED THIS MONEY. I HOPE THE PEOPLE THAT ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS SCAM ARE FOUND AND GET PUNISHED FOR BUILDING UP PEOPLE'S DREAMS AND THEN TEARING THEM DOWN. PEOPLE THAT DO THESE KINDS OF THINGS TO MAKE MONEY OFF OF A POOR INNOCENT PERSON ARE NOTHING MORE THAN THE SCUM OFF OF MY SHOE. I MEAN COME ON ARE YOU SERIOUS?! WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO!! WHY DO YOU THINK IT IS OKAY FOR YOU TO STEAL SOMEONE ELSE'S HARD EARNED MONEY, GET A DAMN JOB AND MAKE YOUR OWN LIKE THE REST OF US!!

I just recieved this e-mail

I just recieved this e-mail tonight and started to get excited. I am in a rough financial situation right now and for a few minutes I was excited.
But after a background search on this company, I have found their offerings to be fraudulent and erronious. I believe at this point that we should band together and find a lawyer whos is willing to support our cause and finding and take on these criminals for what they have already promised us.
Here is what I recieved;

As I was excited by this email, I finally saw my chance to go to college and become a much better benefit to my community. these drams were immediatly shattered after just a few minute of research.
These cowardous criminals need to be cuaght and forced to pay what they owe us.

I agree!!!

I read a posting that said we should ban together and sue these ass holes for our winnings, but I know that they would'nt have it. I would be satisfied to see them go to prison to, that would be worth more than anything!!!! My heart goes out to all that had this done to them.

omega crossing

I got one too with those same numbers. My check is being supposedly held with omega crossing finance and security.They are actually using the 2010 soccer games. One would think they would get involved if this is a scandal.
