Very lazy Walmart raffle ticket scam spam

Sometimes I see some very sophisticated scams with lovely websites and a credible and convincing pitch to snare the unwary. This isn't one of those, but it is a remarkably lazy piece of crap instead.

I've heard it said that the scammers deliberately choose really stupid scams that only an idiot would fall for.. in order to filter out all those people who aren't idiots. So perhaps there is a point to all this half-arsed crappiness after all.
