WE ONLY SELECT FIVE PEOPLE AS OUR WINNERS, WITHOUT THE WINNER APPLYING AND WE ARE ALSO CONGRATULATING YOU FOR BEING ONE OF THEM. HOWEVER YOU WILL HAVE TO FILL OUT AND SUBMIT TO THE EVENTS MANAGER. CONTACT EMAIL : GMLFF@OUTLOOK.COM NOTE WE DONT RESPOND TO FORWARDING EMAIL, YOU HAVE TO SUBMIT YOUR DETAILS TO THE EMAIL STATED ABOVE. Then it goes on to ask for your personal information; name, address, phone number, age, sex, occupation, city, state, and country. You can tell it is a scam if you look at the wording. There is no GMAIL CORPORATION, it is Google. Google owns gmail. They also refer to Microsoft Windows and not the Microsoft Corporation. Plus, it's just plain stupid. If it seems too good to be true, it is.
