    I received a winning email from sheknows.com and all it said in the subject box was "sheknows.com" I normally delete anything that does not say "Congratulations"; however, I accidently left that one in and thank goodness because I won eyelash conditioner.

    I am new to the sweeps. How are winners notified that they have won? It seems that e-mails are likely but some have mentioned that there are winning e-mail with nothing in the subject line. How strange. Does anyone get a phone call these days? :sunny:

    Thanks for sharing the tips, especially the known scam addresses. I try to be careful about what sites I visit/enter, but still receive LOTS of spam/junk email over the past few months. Have also picked up lots of viruses and spyware, despite up-to-date antivirus programs and cleaners. It's almost enough to keep me from Sweeping...

    Almost!! :laughing:

    When I won $5,000 from AT&T I received an affy in my home mailbox...I just won an Omagazine giveaway and received a phone call.....All my other wins were in my email or just showed up at the door..

    I have a suspicious email today: Dear customer.

    The parcel was sent your home address.
    And it will arrive within 3 business day.

    More information and the tracking number are attached in document below.

    Thank you.

    Problem is there is an attachment. I will NOT open. If they want to send me a parcel, that is just fine, but I'm not opening attachments that could contain virus! This is also suspicious. Notice how all the recipients are in alphabetical order: docsrinu2005@yahoo.com, dalarie05@yahoo.com, damraw50@yahoo.com, dfclamper@yahoo.com, danielmegan@yahoo.com, deepali_wargantiwar@yahoo.com, daisyewade@yahoo.com, darrylbsmith@yahoo.com, dctormey@yahoo.com, dances4wine@yahoo.com, dearuch210@yahoo.com, dom.dome@yahoo.com, diamant.heng@yahoo.com, dondrikus@yahoo.com, deansenecal@yahoo.com, curetbetsy@yahoo.com, ebonalde16@yahoo.com, divinestimulation@yahoo.com, deadlymozey2112@yahoo.com, dke1967tbird@yahoo.com, crossry@yahoo.com
