Truly a Remarkable International Spam

I got a spam message today that truly dazzled me with its international complexity.

It seems that the New Mexico state lottery; headquartered in the United Nations building in Geneva, Switzerland; uses a South African e-mail service called "teenmail"; holds its drawings in Melbourne, Australia; pays its winners in London, England, in Euros (not U.S. dollars or British pounds); and confirms winning entries via the Colorado Lottery web site. Oh, and proceeds from the sweepstakes will assist survivors of the 2004 tsunami disaster in Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and the Maldives.

Umm, yeah.
