These people just keep getting trickier and more and more creative, using the name of a real person who did win the lottery and even including a link to a video from the Huffington post announcing this persons actual lottery win! But since the real Gloria MacKenzie is from Flordia and it's obvious from all the bad English and misspelled words, that this person is not American, I figured most likely this is just another email internet scam, so I looked it up and found your site, along with the other people posting her that have also received the same or similar scam email from these people. Another clue that these are just a scam besides the whole way too good to be true story, that you so badly want to believe even though your brain keeps telling you it's def. too good to be true, is how the say they found you, on a list from Microsoft & Google?? As far as I know Google & Microsoft don't keep lists of random people who are in need of a charitable donation, I've never put my name and contact info on any such list, so obviously it's a mass email directed to anyone and everyone that believes their scam. The part that infuriates me the most is how they relentlessly use God, Jesus, and supposed good morals to really try to convince you they aren't trying to scam you! It's so messed up to use the Lord to steal from innocent, desperate, people!! Shameful!! Lucky for me the more this person tried to swear how God fearing and good they were & how many times they swore they weren't trying to scam me, just sounded more and more like a scam! Be careful people, these crooks will stop at nothing to rob you, never send anyone money online!!!! Never!! Even if they claim to be your friend, like an actual friend you have, I've gotten those too, always call the person first to make sure, it you can't reach them call everyone they know, but do not send your money until you KNOW for a fact it's really someone you know and not a scam! Most likely your friends and family wouldn't ask you for money by email! And most likely even a generous super charitable person with loads of money isn't going to just randomly pick strangers off mass emails to give their millions to!
