I was much further out than you thought
And not waving but drowning.
I was much too far out all my life

1. Get an email/letter/invitation/etc.
2. If it looks suspicious move onto 3, if not, stop and reply
3. Ask yourself, "Does this look legit?"
4. If you asked yourself this question, it obviously is not legit. Just by asking this simple question, you nullify the legitimacy in said letter; therefore, by asking yourself this, you are asking a rhetorical question, which is quite pointless seeing as the question automatically proves that it is not legitimate. Then why ask the question? Therein lies the conundrum.

I don't believe you. I love you man, you're better than that.

It's not legit, because it's a hotmail.com email address. If you won something usually you get a company email. And you only ever win if you signed up for it.

Yeah, i was thinking that...
Anyway, if i get any more spam, i'll block the guy.
I stopped using my old email and set up a new one cuz , well, the old one sounded a little stupid and it used to get shit loads of spam mail.
So i set up a nice new clean one with no spam.
Dunno where this came from...

Oh and thanks for the love!
You'll get some back too!
