This is what I wrote back:

I won (almost) the Austrailian lottery!!!!!!!!

WOOHOO, and to think- I din't do a damn thing to get into it.

Just how can I win something I didn't enter?
You Aussies and Europeans sure do things different, see over here in America- we're not so trusting. We make people PAY for their tickets upfront.

Hey, to help you to avoid the trouble, and transfer fees; just write me a check I'll take care of the rest. You know enough about me that I don't even have to add my name.
