  • Wow… all my email does is get bogged down with spam…. that’s really great that your email could do that. I would wonder though, where did your email get the money to go to France?

  • It’s a SCAM. You can’t win a lottery without buying a ticket, and they NEVER let you know you’ve won by e-mail if for no other reason than they have no idea who you are.

  • Those are scams. They send you a check and then ask you to send a small fee back. Their check bounces, they get your money and you have outstanding debt. It’s against the law to participate in lottery’s in other countries.

    You’ll start getting the “Dear Sir/Madam so and so died inheritance or I work for a county’s government and need your help moving money.”

    All scams.

  • its a scam. the only way you can win at lotto or sweepstakes is by purchasing a ticket. no purchase = no entry = no winning.

  • Hey maybe we,ll be on the same airplane when I go pick up my 5 million pound winnings that I won in the British lottery that I never heard of or played but somehow managed to win.

  • Nope. It’s a real common scam – they’ll want you to send them money, and/or your personal information, for you to be able to collect your “prize”, which you’ll never see.

    This same question shows up here multiple times a day, to give you an idea how common it it. And most people recognize it’s a scam and just delete it.

    Don’t get involved.

  • It is a scam.

    You cannot have an international lottery as the gambling laws differ in every country.
    The scammers say it is “International” so as to cover every country.

    Lotterys work like this:
    1)10,000 people pay 1 dollar/euro/pound/yen….etc
    The lottery company now has 10,000

    2) the lottery company holds a draw and gives out 7,000 in winnings (and keeps the profit 3,000)

    Scams work like this:
    -1)nobody pays money (there is no money to win)

    0)a scammer sends out 10,000 spam emails to tell people they have won a lottery they havn’t entered.(they pretend they work for real lottery websites)

    2)The Scammer asks for your Personal details (be prepared! your inbox is going to be full of emails asking for you personally…and dont get me started on what they are gonna do with your Bank details!)

    3)The scammer tells you that you have to pay fees before you can accept the “winnings” (and NO,you cant pay out of the winnings! they dont exist!….silly maga)

    4)The scammer manages to con 3 people out of 1000 and gives all his profits to a charity for orphaned goats (he dosn’t really…he keeps it 😉 )

    5)Your inbox gets more mails than help@microsoft.com
    Everything from “You have won anotther sooperdooperlottry” to “CHAN U B A NEXT OF KIN” to “Please join our company,cash our checks,send us the money until your bank realises you are laundering money for us?)

    The moral of the story is…If it sounds too good to be true… It probably is
