Today I received an email stating I'm entitled to $1.5 million dollars. The only decision I need to make is if I should receive an ATM card to use that money, or, if I should opt for a check. There are benefits to either decision. Recommendations?

Regarding this great achievement, the (U.N) United Nations Anti-crime commission and the United State Government have ordered that the money recovered from these Scammers be shared among 100 Lucky people around the globe.

We have also arrested all those who claimed to be Barristers, Bank Officials, Lottery Agents, Person or group of Person's who claim to have funds in their custody that belonged to you or want you to be the Next of kin of such funds which do not exist.
Now how would you like to receive your payment? Because we have two method of payment which is by Check or by ATM card?
ATM Card: We will be issuing you a custom pin based ATM card which you will use to withdraw up to $3,000 per day from any ATM machine that has the Master Card Logo on it and the card have to be renewed in 4 years time which is 2016. Also with the ATM card you will be able to transfer your funds to your local bank account. The ATM card comes with a handbook or manual to enlighten you about how to use it, even if you do not have a bank account.
Check: To be deposited in your bank for it to be cleared within three working days. Your payment would be sent to you via any of your preferred option and would be mailed to you via UPS. Because we have signed a contract with UPS which should expire in next three weeks, you will only need to pay $205 instead of $420 saving you $215 So if you pay before the three weeks in October 25, 2012 you save $215 Take note that anyone asking you for some kind of money above the usual fee of $205usd is definitely a fraudsters and you will have to stop communication with every other person if you have been in contact with any.
