You won 1 Million Dollars from Publisher's Clearing House Lotto - SCAM

You have won $1,000,000 from Publishers Clearing House - great news isn't it?

This is of course a SCAM.

It is an advanced fee fraud. They will tell you that to collect 'your' winnings you will need to have it either certified by a fake lawyer, pay filing fees, pay to have the money sent to you or perhaps pay to open a bank account in a far away land to put the money in (with a set up fee for sure).

If you Google the name 'Mr. Todd Sloan' or 'Publishers Clearing House Lotto' you will see many references to this scam. Also, look at the 'from' address and the 'Reply To' Address - they are different - a good tip-off that it is a scam.

There is a real Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes. Information can be found at:
