Wow... I "won" 2.5 million, a Mercedes and 2.5k per month for life. With a confirmation #, my valid I.D. and my "invitation" (in the form of a money pak that I could purchase from my local 7-11) I could then meet with someone in my town who would then issue the "winnings". I hope no one falls for this scam... Craziness!!
