Just send them a note telling them to take the $11.98 off the top and send you $1,999,988.02.  What ever you don't find someone in Nigeria to help you turn the $2 mil into $20 mil and don't go buy your new Aston Martin just yet as it is a scam....

Amazingly people still fall for this scam. Pretty sad. Usually someone older, but still often have family and never admit what's going on until way to late.

I thought that at first and then I did some checking.  We just reindexed the site and we are now one of the top search results in Bing for "what should I do".  This is also why a lot of other older off topic threads are all of a sudden generating reponses.  I hope that its not, but in case like Stan I didn't want someone to fall for a scam.  Since there was no obvious spam intent (I just won $2 mil in this lottery and you can too by entering here....) I decided to let it stand.
