Did you know the “Department of State” send out random emails from a free MSN address? No, neither did I. This multicoloured monstrosity claims you’ve won a US green card, then goes on to say you need to stump up $400 to seal the deal anyway.

“USGreenCardLottery(dot)org is a division of ‘US IMMIGRATION CENTER’, a private entity not affiliated with the U.S. Government.”
