    Re: weird winning email notifications to look for

    When you've gotten used to receiving win notifications, you can easily tell the difference between a scam and a real one. I only use my regular ISP address for everything and I block any spam emails I get to cut down on them getting into my email. I don't get much spam at all. Only some of those lottery and bank security ones.

    I do get alot of newsletters and advertisements, etc., that were required to receive in order to enter many sweepstakes; but that doesn't classify as spam.

    :wave:
    Hello Everyone,
    Thanks for all the great advice here. I am fustrated with all the spam myself. I have not recieved a winning email from anyone that I know of and it takes me hours to delete all the spam and click on ones that I think are winners but end up being ads that give me a percentage off if I shop there. I dont know what to look for cause i get several messages from some of the sweeps i enter just as advertisments. I did however have my first win and it was an awesome win. It was a package of Razor products, skooter,scatebord,ramp,helmet,backpack and a three wheel scooter about $700 worth. I was so thrilled but I was never contacted the Fed X guy just showed up at my house two days in a row. My kids were amazed it was all toys. I was gonna save them for Christmas but my first win I couldnt it really was Christmas in July for them. I have not won anything since. Im afraid Im overlooking them or maybe just no wins. I loved the home delivery as opposed to have to find a win in email and respond within a certain period of time. I use live email and I realized yesterday that you can search ur email for certain subject lines line congrats and it will pull up only ur emails with that subject line which would save allot of time if I knew what to search for lol. so a list of winning subject lines ould be great for us all. I wish everyone allot of luck. Im spending my entire day just going through and checking and deleting emails today which cuts into my sweeps time. I get hundreds of email a day just from entering sweeps. thanks for posting and be sure to check ur email for search ur mail this helps when you need to scan through it. Have Blessed day..

It's amazing how many times my email has won the Spanish Super lotto, the Nigerian sweepstakes, and the European jackpot. If I only had the same luck with my state lotto or Publishers Clearing House.(LOL)
    Not always true, especially for smaller sweeps, I started sweeping a few weeks ago and have received four wins and they were all from the E-mails of indiviuals not of the site I won from. I've gotten all thewins since by mail and Fed Ex.

    you will probably not get a email from a .org site unless you requested.

    .org are legit.

    http://www.pbs.org/ public broadcasting system(?)

    www. democrats.org

    check out here.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.org

    I do a search about once a week using keywords such as winner, congradulations, prize. Gives me less to go through at one time and delete as at least 99% are not legit.

    In the subject line it says winner and it's from Missy Ashton.

    This is to correct the message earlier on sent to you. The correct e-mail address you should contact for your claim processing is national agents@yahoo.com.my

    You should forward your response to this corrected e-mail address.

    Once again, we are sorry for the miss up.

    Yours Truly,

    Missy Ashton

    The wierd thing is I don't recall an earlier e-mail. I have no idea as to what contest/sweepstakes, what information they may be asking for etc.. I did reply just explaing that I'd been contacted by e-mail from her in response to a possible winner's notification however, I didn't recall an earlier e-mail and that if they could contact me with any information regaurding this subject it would be greatly appreciated. What do you think about this? Thank you.
    The tip off is the addy - in this case, it's Yahoo! Singapore {yahoo.com.my}

    If the addy ends in .my, .hk, .ru, etc., it's a scammer :nono:

    Re: weird winning email notifications to look for

    I have to agree with the person who first posted. I have recently received more than usual "winning" notifications. Some appear to look real, so be careful. I received two that looked real but realized they were not, after carefully reviewing it. I never click on anything they ask me to either.

    I received one for KitchenAid appliance win and another one that said I won a samsung washer and dryer.

    Has anyone recently entered the pogo.com sweeps??? I was wondering if that was reputatable too??? It looked suspicious - just asking???
