Uk Lottery Scam Email

My Inbox

*** Lucky Winner ....... Congratulations ***

Apparently I have just won the UK National Lottery, and I haven't just won once, I have won twice, 6 days ago I recieved an email stating that I have won a cool £1 million and 5 days ago I recieved another email stating that I have won a cool £1.2 million. How lucky can one person be ?

Ofcourse I know that both the emails are complete and utter rubbish and if I responded to them I would end up losing money rather than becoming a millionaire over night.

Some people do fall for these scams though, they see the big money numbers and boom! stop thinking straight. next thing they know they have sent off some money to "process their claims" sometimes 2 or 3 thousand pounds, or the find that they have no money in their bank accounts because thay have sent their details to the scammers.

The People who sent these emails to me have done a little homework, the first one has the correct postal address for the UK national lottery but they do not name Camelot who run the UK lottery, nor do they provide a link to the official UK lottery website. where as the second one has included the name Camelot.
