It was explained to me to as the scamer is stealing vredit card information to pay people then you find yourself in trouble with the law as they make it appear as though you have stoled someones information so be very careful.

I have to disagree with that I have won small amounts like a dollar and actually got it from some lotteries just never a big amount but I only play to be having fun it doesn't matter rather I win or lose it is just something to do if you should win I am sure that they have a legal team to contact you.

I agree with all response. It's totally fake! I've been sent two different e-mail, which inform me that I won some big cash, only in a week, how is it possible. Please ignore them, it might be the best for you.

I also got one a couple of hours ago from a supposedly big win in a lottery in the UK. According to snopes.com all email mail notifications of lottery wins are fraud/spam. Even if they send you a certified check it will bounce and they will have spammed you out of a process of handling fee of any where from $200.00 to $2,000.00. Ignore it and do NOT send them any confirmation or information.

If you haven't played any lotteries then you know this is wrong there are alot of scams out there that say that but if you email them they will send the email right back to you marked unable to send address wrong so it is more and likely a scam as they probably want you to send an amount of money before they can process your claim.So I would lose the idea if it was real they would contact you in a legal manner letting you know.Good luck and hope you don't get taken by the wolves who prey on the misforunate people of the world.
