Hey! I Just Won The Lottery!
I wish I knew how to stop this crap from coming into my email. I have Norton's Spam Guard on and I thought that my ISP also sorted out these junk emails, but I guess not. I'm going to contact them though and see what can be done.
But I've become overrun with them as of late....
