I get this all the time except mine deal with winnings from South Africa, A bank in South Africa, someone died and they dont want the bank to have the money so they are giving it to me, in South Africa as well (not to be offensive)

And most of them deal with the same place, Johannesburg (sp?)

But anyway, most of the ones i get seem logical, but i dont respond.

Somebody randomly emailing you saying you won a million Euros from a lottery you never entered or heard of seems logical?
