I just opened some snail mail that I received earlier today. It was one of those letters that said I’d won something. Hmmm what could it be I asked myself.
Obviously I wasn’t that curious about it because I waited about four hours before I opened it.
The letter proclaimed on the front that I was a “Grand Slam” winner.
I’ve apparently won the Grand Slam in our Canadian Lotto 6/49 lottery. All I have to do to claim my prize is send $10 to an Australian address.
The letter doesn’t say how much I won. I’m supposed to trust them and send them my money with no idea if I’ve apparently one a dollar or a million dollars.
Trouble is, our lottery doesn’t function online and there’s nothing called a Grand Slam in the 6/49 lottery.
Sounds like a scam eh? A quick Google search confirmed that it is indeed a scam.
The letter came from Singapore but I’m to return it to Haplin Data Services in Runaway Bay Australia.
Sure … sure I will.
