    Run Away, Run Away Fast, They want to steal from you. A big scam. I win about 6 mill a week from lotteries like that. Do not call them, they have a toll number. You did not enter this?

    Those scams are every where.If I were to win all the money that these scammers say, I would have all the money in the world. I bet that they want all of your personal information also. If you want your life turned upside down,by all means give it to them. Personaly, I would trash it....
