[put at-character here]Martin Porcheron, The spam was actually sent to my Yahoo account. So that is probably why it has a reply to a Yahoo account in the spam message. But that got me laughing when I saw that.

With each passing day, it's not too early to start thinking about what a winning day could be like. For our new winner, things would get pretty exciting – fast. First, there'd be a knock at the door, the winner would open it and find the Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol there with flowers, balloons, and that "big check" just like on TV! Then there'd probably be screams of delight, congratulatory hugs and maybe even some tears of joy. It's sure to be the winner's most lucrative day ever.
Think of what life would be like if you were selected the winner,Instantly, you could have the financial security you've dreamed of – the ability to take care of loved ones and treat yourself to life's finer things.

This is a prerequisite for this option. You will be referred to our affiliate courier company so that you can make enquires concerning modalities, and charges.
