Was sent the USUAL e-mail that my email address was linked to a "special" UK (and other) Lottery Draw for "promotion" purposes. It looked quite geniune. They are getting pretty professional in terms of language, spelling etc. I try and follow up and see at which stage they are going to ask you to pay up front (590 to 790GBP) before they can transfer the 500.000GBP (in this case). There is always a "hard cover" insurance to be paid which ("by law") cannot be deducted from the "winnings". If you choose direct transfer (2.000GBP), they still cannot deduct it either.... "Note that your prize is protected by a hardcover insurance policy by GEOINTERNATIONAL INSURANCE COMPANY, which makes it impossible to deduct any amount from the money before it has been remitted to you. This means that the above charges cannot be deducted from the prize and hence must be provided by you before your prize is transferred to you." ..... (what rubbish!). They also use logos of reputable companies such as OCS, Fedex, UPS and DHL to try and make it look genuine! Money does not come that easy! My email address must have been drawn dozens of times over a period of six months - statistically impossible! Waste their time and string them along - it can be fun!

The worst is, they usually target people who are quite desperate and cannot afford to pay up front.
