I rec'd a # of these e-mails and rejected them all. This question was asked in another topic, and "CHUDDER" also responded that do NOT print this! It's a shame these scammers make life so difficult for the rest of us. It ia a scam, but something essy to assume it was legit. Evie

Delete, just spam. I got the email too and didn't fall for it .

It's a shame that some of these guys make the emails look SO real. One of the first things to look for is misspelled words...(the Starbucks one had at least one). Another thing is to look at the grammar, and if that all looks fine, do a search and research before clicking on anything. Generally a winning email will address you by name and give you the name of the sweepstake. Summerstorm did a search for that address...that's a good thing to do. One tip off is it's from a "de" ending....Denmark. A winning email from Starbucks or AT&T wouldnt' be coming from an address in Denmark.


The lesson here is just be careful....don't click on anything until you're sure it's from an actual win. It's sad that these people have to prey on others.... what a pitiful existence that must be.


Good luck all, hopefully the next emails we get are REAL ones!!!!!!

I would not touch it because the URL comes from foreign countries.  If this was real, it would come likely from starbucks.com.
