Its different to the usual "you have won millions" as £500 isnt that much, so you think maybe it is real, but im not a lucky person and if something seems too good to be true it usually is, shame could have done with £500 though, lol. I was posting so people wouldnt fall for it as not everyone checks for bad spelling and grammar, especially first thing in the morning, I know I didnt.
