I received this from a person I sent a warning to.

This scam must win a prize itself for name dropping :shock: None of the organisations run any Lottery, and would never select winners, if they did, by some mythical e-mail address selection process.

The scammer is just using the names of reputable, trusted and world renowned companies to make their scam sound more plausible.

I have obscured the originating e-mail address, for the present, as the mention of a website lower down has caught my attention. I'll be contacting them to discover more. Any scam website discovered will be reported to the authoriities and exterminated. :evil:
