YOU CAN TELL THE LETTER IS FAKE BECAUSE A LEGITIMATE LETTER WOULD USE BETTER GRAMMAR AND SPELLING...THE WORDING OF THE LETTER IS SO THAT THE PERSON RECEIVING IT WILL SENSE URGENCY TO CLAIM THEIR PRIZE, THE WORDING HAS TOO MUCH EMPHASIS ON LEGITIMACY, NOT TO MENTION THE REQUEST FOR PAYMENT BY WESTERN UNION OR MONEYGRAM...PLEASE, TELL ME NO ONE ACTUALLY FELL FOR THIS CRAP!!
