The scammers are clearly getting desperate. They couldn't even be bothered to make up an organisation or company for this rather sad attempt at a a scam draw. Ok - so I've won £600k, allegedly. Who from???
What twaddle!! It's all a scam of course, there was no draw. Just delete the email and don't reply.
This email appears to have come from Fontbonne University - a Catholic institution in St Louis. Very Christian of the originator to try to scam people!!
