    I got the same email, if only it was genuine. Never mind I am sure some real wins will be along soon.
    Many thanks to the wonderful staff at Birmingham Childrens Hospital caring for my tiny and very poorly grandson who was born at 29 weeks. Thanks to them he is getting a little stronger every day.

    Looks like you have had your 'real win' congrats.

    Aldaniti is still alive and well - I received an email this morning stating my 'Membership Card' was ready for up to 70% discounted holidays and I should activate it.

    The giveaway with these scams is that the member's name is merely my email address and there is no reference to my real name.

    This 'company' has been around for some time and up to all sorts of tricks. Why is nothing done about closing them down?

    Aldaniti (name a bit of a giveaway, no?) still at it end April 2012
    Beware, aldaniti.net are advertising (of all places) on the BT Phone Book website via pop-up ads.

    I was searching for a number, and (cutting it short) found a pop-up on one of the pages I landed up at saying, "Win an iPhone - Congratulations. You've just been selected! [picture filched from Apple website] [red bar, white type] Are you a winner? CLICK HERE"

    Suspicions immediately aroused. I run a Mac, so not worried about PC malware, and decided to have a quick view of the destination page, saw the address was not BT but aldaniti.net, closed the tab and googled "win an iphone aldaniti" -- to find this forum! Have reported it to BT, now letting users on here know.

    cjcooper I think its a scam , it doesn't say you won a mini cooper, but "you have been selected to win a mini cooper". I have received scam emails as well, not this one. It is very disheartening. Here's hoping you will win a car in the future.
