There really is a Scott Peters in the banking business. But did you notice that the name in the email is deliberately misspelled? Boy, it's a good thing I didn't, because I was mighty excited:
Are you God? Because I've been praying to God for this kind of money AND I'VE RECEIVED IT! THANK YOU!! I WILL DO ANYTHING YOU SAY TO GET THE MONEY!!!
But I am confused, so confused by your email! What does it mean, how did I win it? Just tell me how, in words I can understand, AND I WILL GIVE YOU ALL THE INFORMATION YOU WANT! MY BANK NUMBER, PASSPORT, EVEN THE KEYS TO MY HOUSE!!! BECAUSE I'LL BE ABLE TO BUY A NEW HOUSE! Just explain how I won this money.
Too much to ask for? Apparently so. They never replied.
