    There is same old story happened before. I believe later on they will ask you to send some money over to them first, as a fee to process your prize claim or whatsoever, usually the money is a % of your prize money. Whether to believe them or not is your choice/decision.

    wow, the money I haven't received, you guys already plant me a wish list. well... think of it, sometimes, it is not too bad either to weave a dream purchase.

    since this thread has spinned off to some bor liao wish list, maybe you guys/gals want to list your wish (one only please ) if I were to win a cool $4.5 million, which I honestly doubt I will.

    Wryer - 1% of $4.5 Million ($45,000) greedy wish!

    espn - D1x (ok, this one is manageable! Oh, why don't you wish for a D2x instead?)

    actually, I have already realised that this afternoon shortly after I posted this thread. Done a search with google and the first match/search already spilled out everything that this is a scam as I expected it to be.

    The thing is I have not started dreaming, so tell me how to stop?
