These are your wining identification number and secret code:
The American online Promotion Department has discovered a huge number of double claims. This is due to winners informing close friends relatives and third parties about their winnings and also sharing their secret number. As a result of this, these friends try to claim the lottery on behalf of the real winners.
The Office has reached a decision from headquarters that any double claim discovered by the Bonanza board will result to the cancellation of that particular winning, as it would be taken that the real winner is the informer to the double claimer about the lottery.
So you are hereby strongly advised once more to keep your winnings strictly confidential until you claim your prize.
