We have reached the biggest milestone in our history – over a million wallets.

https://blockchain.info will celebrate with some big prizes.

In October 2013, the lucky user who created the 500,000th wallet was rewarded with 10 BTC.

Read more about this: http://www.coindesk.com/blockchain-winn ... oin-wallet

We have discovered that you created the wallet with number 1.000.000

Blockchain want to reward you with 50 BTC.

To prove that you are the rightful owner of the lucky wallet,

please reply to this email and send us your mnemonic ( the long string of words generated randomly when your account was created)

After verification, your wallet will be credited instantly with the 50 BTC.

Thank you that you have chosen https://blockchain.info

Please DO NOT tell a scammer that he has been posted here!

Yes it's a standard lottery scam.

Ignoring everything else that tells us this is a scam (and there is plenty), there can only be one "millionth user." The very fact that multiple people have received this email tells us it is a scam right there.

Hi, everyone!

My name is Alyson, and I work for Blockchain.info.

I can ensure you this is a scam. We reached our 1 millionth wallet the first week of January, and already awarded the winner the prize of 10 BTC (not 50).

Blockchain.info will never ask you for your password, or password mnemonic. The only intentions of this email are to use your password mnemonic to recover your password and steal your bitcoins.

Hope this clears it up for anyone who wasn't sure.
