What should I buy with the $1.5 million I just won?

Got the following e-mail this morning. This must be legitimate.... They have a very professional looking web site that they provide a link to. I do wonder why you contact the National Lottery Foreign Service Manager through his Yahoo mail, maybe its just part of their security plan. I sent Mr. Hollister my social security number, my driver’s license number, my checking and savings account numbers, and two credit card numbers (along with the security numbers on the backs) this morning. He said I should have my money by the weekend.

So, what should I buy?????

Hire a lawyer. That's always a good use of lottery winnings.

Believe it or not, this isn't just usual spam. There are actually people in Nigeria sitting at a PC typing these things all day using "people info" they gather off the internet. And, believe it or not, there are idiots out there that actually believe this $#!& and respond.

There was a site somewhere I was reading that some guy decided to pull a fast on on the scammer. The guy was selling a laptop on eBay and this guy from south africa contacted him about buying more than one "ASUS brand" laptop. A long story and the guy hosting the ebay add gets $500 and the scammer from South Africa ended up with 5 "ANUS Laptops"... all of which were busted to hell.

I'd tell you to look up the word "Gullible", but as of last year, Merriam/Webster had it removed from the dictionary.

Close, but not cigar. When someone steals your identity they become someone else.. you're still you. well, really there would be more than you.. so you may not be you.. you could be an identity thief... who stole a cherokee, or something like that. you get what I'm saying?
