One of your facebook friends will contact you and ask have you received the good news? Once you reply as to what good news you are directed to friend Mr. Longeria. Once you friend him, he checks to see if you are still eligible. Of course you are. You have to then give him you your name, address, phone number, sex and age. You are then instructed to send $800 for shipping and case file fees so that FED-EX can deliver your money in 6 hours. They show pictures of a bundle of money and a FedEx courier. This is a damn shame.!!!

I revived an email saying that I won they wanted my information which I gave just for curiosity. Got another email with a certificate attached saying that I was the winner of $820,000.00 USD. And with that another attachment asking that I need to pay upfront. Which I did not do. And that's why I am reporting it.
