The idea of Facebook giving away actual cash is so ludicrous I almost didn’t read this spam:
Your profile has won the sum of ONE MILLION Pounds in the ongoing Facebook Promo.
We are pleased to inform you of the result of the just concluded quarterly Draws held by the worldwide association of internet service user and provider lottery Promotions, your email was among the 10 lucky winners who won the sum of One Million Great Britain Pounds (Ј1,000,000.00 GBP) in THE TAGGED FACEBOOK PROMOTIONS However, Your email was attached to data file number (UK/9420X2/68) and grant Number (CCC/0080648302/07) with Winner No.005.
You know, it would be nice, or at least a tiny bit less unconvincing, if the people running this thing — ostensibly from 17, Upper Grosvenor Street, London, W1K 7PJ — had bothered to send it to the actual email address I use on Facebook.
Then again, it may not matter:
