I am sure if it is legit than you should be able to find a real live claims center

I seriously doubt that lottery agent would use a free email account.

This is a scam. Dont even contact them or give them any information. This is just for information leeching purposes and possibly identity theft.

lol sounds like one my partners aunty won they phoned her up and everything but she still thought she had won 1million pounds even when the person told her that she had to pay like 2500 pound to get the winnings sent to her took a couple of weeks to talk her out of it we even told her to ring them at the number they gave turned out to be a cell phone number in the uk.

When/if you reply to these emails you'll soon find you need to pay an admin fee to claim your prize. Of course this admin fee will be payable via western union.

Head over to 419eater.com and all will be explained and how to deal with these scammers.

I usually print mine out and take it to work to show everyone that I won the lottery and that this is the last day, AGAIN. Amazing that I never had to enter to win.

Ha. A mailing list i am on for fun jokes about this all the time. We are now tallying up who the grand winner really is. We have all been getting the winning notifications for it, none of us ever playing. :-) We get a kick out of seeing who wins more money and how many times we each have won. Great fun. Scams are great to laugh at, so long as you know they are a scam.
