They say, There is no need to contact us if you have received a lottery related scam.

Just vented a little for my own satisfaction, set up an alias email address, sent 100 blank emails to the address listed and closed alias, wont do any good but I feel better.

I think the lottery itself is a scam, but if I win it, I may change my mind :¬}

Blackhat, My son said that if you do that, while it seems a good idea, it does 2 things. Firstly it tells the scammer that they have a live address, secondly, the scammer may have taken over somebodies' PC and is using that to send out the scams so the result of your action MAY be to block up some innocent mailbox

Setting up an account with yahoo/hotmail etc is so easy, you dont even have to put in any real info. Scamers use them for one victim and then move on.

And if it makes you fell better to send 100 blank emails theres nothing wrong in that. They (the scammers) dont care about you so why should you about them!!
