Nowadays, people are receiving more and more suspicious emails in their mailboxes. Scammers send fake lottery emails informing about huge winnings. You can see some examples of fake-lottery emails below.
Have you received an email from a lottery claiming that you won a big amount of money? Be careful, THIS IS A SCAM. Make sure you have no further contact with the sender and never give any personal information or money.
The important thing to remember is that you cannot win a lottery unless you have bought a ticket. Notification of winnings by 'random selection' email or letter is never genuine. Cross-border sales are also strictly prohibited so you cannot win a lottery in another country unless you have bought a ticket from an authorised outlet in that country.
The list of genuine European Lotteries is available on the page Member Lotteries.
