I won the lottery

Can you believe it? Well I can't but I can pretend. Well I supposedly won the Australian lottery today. I didn't even know I had entered. Not to mention they let you know by email. How cool is that????

Anyways, I got an email today saying that I had won and while I peed my pants from excitement read the fine print I decided it had to be a scam. This is what the email said.

Well, I guess I didn't win the lottery. But maybe I should buy some lottery tickets...could this be a sign?

On a side note -- anyone noticed how many Australia incidences have been in my life this past week?

aww what a let down. then again i guess the first sign that it was a scam should have been the typo in "do not reply to this email".
