In the run up to Christmas, it is reassuring to know that I will not be short of cash. That would, at any rate, should be the conclusion based on the number of lottery "wins" that I have been receiving in my mail box these days.
I guess, if these "wins" were not fake, then I would now be richer than Bill Gates.
However, none of these lottery "wins" are genuine, they are cons sent out by scummy scammers; who hope to trick me into claiming a "prize" and paying a "processing fee".
They are worthless!
