    Urban Lottery International strikes again

    So I had been getting persistent emails claiming I won 1 million dollars, and assuming it was a scam I searched online to see what came up with "Urban Lottery International". I found a very entertaining thread from this website,

    http://www.scam.com/printthread.php?t=2717

    and when I saw that it was from 2005 I couldn't believe this idiot was still trying to scam. Mr. Mike Okoro has sent me numerous emails, claiming it was my last chance to respond.

    Hey, gookso0- I'll have you know he didn't take any of your advice.

    But, I did take the advice I saw posted by leela and with ease, I kindly told them to leave me be:

    Next time I recieve one of these emails (I believe this is the 5th one you ***holes have sent me), I will not hesitate to take proper legal procedure. F*** off.

    Have not recieved a response. Based on how desperate they must be, would not surprise me if he responded. I will let you all know if he does.
