Spam, spam, spam, spam

Attention, spammers: If you don't know how to write in grammatical English, maybe you shouldn't call your scam the "British National Lottery." I would have gone with "Turkmenistan Lucky Happy Draw." I admit that the signature is a nice Monty Python-esque touch, except that it should read "Mrs. Stella Amas (deceased)" and she should be played by Graham Chapman.
