Apparently I have won a lump sum payout of $1,003,198.50 in Uni Air's annual end of year lottery program.

All I have to do to collect my winnings is supply the following :-

" Write in full, your telephone number, postal and residential adress.

Scanned copy of your recent passport photograph.

Scanned copy of the main information page of your national passport or I.d card or driving licence.

Acceptance fee: $1,325. This fee should be payed through western union money transfer adressed to the second secretary of UniAiR. "

I assume the $1,325 is so the sender can take their spelling to 'Janet & John' level !

Because they are as thick as two short planks as well as naive and greedy.
