    ticket as stated above. You have therefore been approved for a pay out
    of £1,800,000.00 (One Million Eight Hundred Thousand Pounds).

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    security firm for transfer into your nominated bank account either by
    means of wire transfers through any of our correspondent banks or any
    other means suitable to you. We also advice that you keep your winning
    information very confidential as our security policy demands to avoid
    double claims/impersonation and unwarranted abuse of this program by
    some
    individuals.

    All participants were selected through a random computer ballot system
    drawn from over 800,000 company and 1,000,000 individual email
    addresses and names from all over the world. This promotional program
    takes place annually and we hope with part of your winning you will
    take

    to
    verify and process your claims for your total payment (You will
    receive
    more information upon your acknowledgment of this email).

    This lottery is promoted and sponsored by software corporations and
    other private organizations to help individuals generate fortunes
    which would encourage them to expand their business frontiers thereby
    creating more opportunities and assisting with humanitarian concerns
    within their immediate environment. Please Note that winnings must be
    claimed not later than 30th of November 2005. After this date all
    unclaimed
    funds will be included in our subsequent program coming up later in
    2006.

    more. This years program has been designed to give out lump sums
    to fewer individuals and corporate winners. Emails listed on the
    Internet were picked at random from different websites, discussion
    groups and search engines for the final selection and winning.

    Your email address was picked by our automated computer ballot
    system, which has been programmed for this random selection. This
    has eventually qualified you for the lump sum jackpot of
