    They will eventually ask you to pay "fees" and the like in order to collect. This is a SCAM! Avoid at all costs.

    In addition to all the other scam signs, Nakata is not a Korean name.

    This is a classic take on the UK lottery scam. They entered your email address for you and you won a ****load of money, right? Only thing is, to cash out you will have to send them all kinds of fees. There will be more and more fee requirements as you go along. You will also end up sending them your banking information and lord knows what else.

    This is a classic scam and comes in several flavors.

    (PS - I just got another Nigerian 401 scam today, except it was now the Russians). These jerks never quit.

    HEY! I love the auto censor on my "boatload" of money comment. Only I didn't say boat!
