    Looks legit in every way.

    Shame you didn't win the Irish Lottery instead. Some do that two or three times a year. Damn your luck! ;-)

    You better reply as soon as possible so that they can release your "fund" to you. They would hate to see the "Miscreants, hoodlums and touts" take your identity!!

    Well, there is a lot of bad grammar and several spelling mistakes, so it could well be from an American.

    I'd go for it.

    bait them into thinking you are hooked. See how long you can keep up the correspondence. If you need help, look into the links I posted. I know many people on those sites.
