winning development fund redeem it.

“in an effort to reduce the impact of food and financial crisis around the world” this scammer has decided to send me $380k “to salvage” my “finances“.

What a lot of *******.  This scammer doesn’t want to send me money – he or she is hoping I (or you) will start sending him money.  If you make the mistake of replying you find yourself being asked to send money to pay fees.
