Though scam lottery mails can claim to be representing any lottery in any part of the world, many claim to be based in the UK, most frequently The National Lottery. There are only two legal lotteries operating in the UK, and one, even the scammers have never heard of.

The one they frequently masquerade as, is the National Lottery and this link details how the real company operates

and from this you will easily confirm that any first contact e-mail purporting to come from them is a scam. They don't contact you by e-mail, as you have to contact them with the winning ticket. No ticket ? - you haven't won. Even a winner can't claim without a ticket.
