If it seems too good to be true, it is.
Look at the emails going around that promise a little pill can give you perkier, bigger breasts and a generous sized penis to boot!

Run Forrest! Run!!

you know what, you are right. it does seem completely different than all the other scams where they tell you that they will send you a large check and all you have to do is deposit it and send them back some of it.

now that i think of it, i do think that you should go ahead and deposit this check and send the money to them.

i guess the only thing left to say is congrats on winning the lottery...

it is perhaps apt that they use the Hong Kong Jockey Club as their cover. They certainly want to take you for a ride.

TANSTAAFL!!

If the sign says the lunch is free, it's because they put bigger heads on the beer!
