    BELONGS IN OFF TOPIC (MOD):

    Received an email claiming I'd won $350,000 US dollars in the "Grand American Lottery Shooting Games Award" It references John Norris as the "Claims Processing Manager". To my knowledge John Norris hasn't been Executive Director with the ATA for a couple years. It also references Connie Colliers name as the "Promotion Manager". The phone numbers listed for the ATA in Vandalia are incorrect. It also references that this is in conjunction "The Northeastern Grand hold on Sept 13th -18th"


    Anyone else receive this junk?? (copied below)

    Congradulations, make sure you include your SS# and maybe even a drivers license so they make sure they get it to the right person.

    Sheezz that's an awful personalized scam. I mean the referrences to Trap shooting, ATA and various peoples names makes it almost believeable. Thank goodness you are wise enough to know certain things didn't smell right. Scary.

    I plan on calling and then forwarding this to Connie @ ATA in the morning since she was mentioned by first and last name. She/ATA may want to take this a little further.
