WOMAN MAKES STUNNING DISCOVERY IN SPAM FOLDER, SHE WON $3 MILLION STATE LOTTERY!
So email is an amazing tool, and we pretty much all use it every day. But I must admit, my personal email address has fallen by the wayside in comparison to my work addresses. So much so, that it feels like a chore to go thru it all to stay current. And that’s my Inbox! But the Spam folder is an even more daunting prospect, depending on your filters. I have no idea what’s in there. But now, I just may have to go and have a look. Because one Michigan woman’s review of her Spam folder gave her a nice little surprise: she was a $3 million winner!
NOW EVERYONE WILL FANTASIZE ABOUT FINDING RICHES IN THEIR EMAIL’S SPAM FOLDER
So imagine the tableau. You’re sitting there bored out of your mind looking at things that are mostly a waste of time. And then you see a Subject line about you being a major moolah winner. Of course, that’s just the Spam Folder, right? But it looks interesting so you open it. And inside, it says you are the $3 million winner of the Michigan State lottery. Hmmm. Suuuuuuure. But it looks pretty real, right? So why not? You then go to the official Michigan State Lottery website to see what’s what. And against all odds (shout out to Phil Collins here), it all lines up? WHAT!?!
NOW, WE ALL MAY HAVE TO THINK OF OUR SPAM FOLDERS IN A TOTALLY DIFFERENT LIGHT
So if that sounds like a made up story, I totally feel your pain. But the thing is, this is real! The Michigan woman’s name is Laura Spears. The 55-year-old had the matching numbers of 02-05-30-46-61 in the lotto draw on the last day of 2021. Sure, she only won the $1 million prize. But then the Megaplier kicked in TIMES 3! So the next time you look at your Spam Folder and that crazy Unread number next to it, maybe don’t just move on. You don’t even have to be in Michigan! I’d say for Laura, even if the year 2021 was just awful, it sure ended on a high note!
