FBI: Oprah "Millionaire" Show Email Is A Scam

The FBI says an email is going around that claims to be from the "Oprah Winfrey Show," telling people they've been nominated for the "Oprah Millionaire Contest Show." The email says, in order to participate, you need to mail contact name, address and telephone and email address to an address. You're then told to purchase airfare and a ticket to attend "The Oprah Winfrey Show," as well as complete a forthcoming contest form containing personal questions. The contestants are then promised a seat for the show in April and asked to provide their responses to the personal questions for a chance to win a million dollars.

The FBI says this email is a scam.

    You can bet that Oprah, aka The Ebony Douchebag, has her army of PR folks and lawyers ready for this one.

    Please tell me how people can be so gullible to think that if you haven't even turned in your name to something like this, how in the world would you win it!!
