  1. TechPaul,

    Was looking at the “t-online.de” on Max’s email and just for curiosity I plugged it into the browser (in a sandboxed mode) and it did take me to what appears to be a legit “foreign” site; plus did an IP check on that site and is showing T-Online International AG –
    Deutsche Telekom Online Service GmbH (Dutch Telcom Site)… Max, that old scamster, is actually using a legit site to enhance this scam. Folks, do not let greed lead you down the wrong path with these things. And TechPaul, do not spend all of that winnings in one place AND don’t forget your “poor” friends.

    • There are a few other unique angles here.. no embedded hyperlink for one..

      Yes, I remember quite well how how life-changing and exciting winning the Irish Sweepstakes was (my first million Pounds Sterling), but after you have $133+ million in the bank.. what’s another million? Yawn!
