    So they go through all that trouble just to scam a user for US$15? I think what they gain in return is a conformation of personal details that they can use for bigger returns. For example, credit card number.
    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    I have received something similar as well, posted from Spain. It says I won 3rd or 4th prize worth a few hundreds thousand euros. Very official looking. The letter ended up at the bottom of the rubbish bin immediately.

    Thought such has been around since the late 80s? Like someone mentioned...Reader's Digest in the past.

    One look you automatic throw away, some even go to the extent of including a car key replica to inform you have won a car. What do you think?
