Surplus Greetings,



If you have received this email then you are one of the lucky, fellow to
benefit from us. On behalf of myself and family I am happy to inform you that I and my wife Roy Cockrum have chosen you to be one of our beneficiaries on our $259.9 million Powerball jackpot that held last Thursday.



Based on the win we decided that just 25 people be selected for this benefit, leaving each beneficiary with 1 million us dollars each to better their lives because we can?t enjoy it all alone, as the win is for sharing.


This might appear strange but it?s a reality, so do get back to us quickly via email at : <EMAIL ADDRESS REMOVED>
