Hi Umer These kind of e-mails are fake and scam. I got these kind of e-mails numerous times and the best way to deal with these type of e-mails is to delete them and don't ever think about providing the personal details as the intention of the e-mail is to get the personal information. They in turn will sell the information. The best thing is to delete this and be relaxed. Happy MyLotting.

This 100% spam. I received 2 winning notifications UK National Lottery. 1st one in 2002, the 2nd came a week ago. I also received 1 winning notification from online lottery (they also gave a website on it) this is one of strategies to make people believe it. I replied all this with "FAKE" ID information. I put my grand-grandmother's name, Gas station address, Best income Occupation, 24 yrs old for Age, Police Dept.# for telephone/fax number... and so on... I bet you, once you replied to their email, then you will be asked to submit your identity card in JPG format. (I sent them my FAKE ID card it's easy to modify) So.. they've tried to cheat me, so I fooled them back

Hi Umer,Going by the prize money he mentioned it is a scam for sure and these kind of mails are more common now and every one so aware of those that they just delete them but some feww illiterates would fall under this scam and lend their bank account and other personal information or they try to get some money in the name of handling charges for the amount to be deposited.I really those kind of people who try to cheat others and they cannot survive long on others money one day would be bankrupt for sure.good day.

Hey there pal, it is a scam, lots of e-mails like that, are plain simple scams that wish to do some identity theft on whoever is dumb enough to reply to them, and I know you even recognized it. I mean, if you didn't purchase a ticket in a lottery, why would you even win?

Hi umer, Don't believe those kind of messages, they're all spams... First off all, have you joined the UK NATIONAL LOTTERY blah, blah, blah contest? Most likely, the answer is no. Logic seems to suggest that you'll only win a contest if and when you joined one.

this is what I life to call a SCAM! DO NOT REPLY TO ANY TYPE OF EMAIL THAT ASKES FOR YOUR INFORMATION, anything bank account, social if you in the states. there are plenty more you need to watch out for. no one emails you about any accounts or anything that you are winning unless you know of the contents. such email is a scam. lots of people fall for scams and loss a lot of things.

Do you have Yahoo for an email address. I get these type of scam/phishing emails everyday from my Yahoo acct. Yahoo have since started putting them annoying scam/phishing emails in my spam folder. It had gotten so bad I stop using my Yahoo account for a whole year.
