Thumbs Down Re: Online award confirmation message from Chevron Texaco Oil And Gas Corporation

What do you think?

Chevron, an international OIL company (of course, all oil companies are known for giving away money because they are so darn nice) wants to give you three million dollars, for winning a lottery you never signed up for?

Look at the email you recieved this from. Do you think that, even *IF* Chevron were to give away money, they would be anouncing their winnings from their DEVRY email account?

Look at the domain you are to reply to: chevrontexacozonef.com . Firstly, if you ever recieve an email promising money, and the email gives you a different email that you need to reply to, that's a big, HUGE clue that it's a scam. Moreover, does the site even exist? Heck, they can't even get the name of the sender correct- Mrs Bruce Cook?

Sorry, but remember, anything that's too good to be true, probably is.

It's just a knockoff of those popular Nigerian email scams.

Don't ever be a fool and give out any personal information to these foreign dogs.

Guys, not only is this a scam, but if you are an American citizen, and this was legit, it would be against FEDERAL LAW to accept the money. That is even if you intentially registered for this lottery or contest.
