    Damn it Bernie! They asked you to keep it secret. Now you have to worry about "some unscrupulous individual" trying to steal your prize. You already have a skeeter claiming he's the winner.

    My wife came into the living room and calmly said I had won a fortune from the ATA!

    I said "Oh yeah, well you can have it!"

    No response?

    What is the return path on the email? It should have a domain name if so the provider can find out who's sent the email.

    Have some fun with them. Create a new g-mail account with fake info and string them along. See what they try to get you to do.
