Big Winner

And yet, somehow, today I am the winner in not one, not two, but three lotteries! I was startled by the first lottery notification, astonished by the second, and nearly dropped into a dead faint at the third.

"Your email attached to Coupon number (AWIN-01257) won contract sum of 1,000,000 Euros from a total sum of 10,000,000 Euros. We request your serious attention to this notification by contacting the claims and notarization department with claim information and procedures of claim below."

Hey, I got it in an email; it must be true.
