Sample Scams Emails Involving the Irish National Lottery

How to Recognize Them and What To Do If You Receive One
"The Irish National Lottery
Deborah Clark, David Adams

If you received an email from "Deborah Clark", claiming to be from the Irish National Lottery or the Irish National Lottery Online, and to contact David Adams to receive your winnings, beware! This scam claims that there is a free online version of the Irish Lottery that selects winners, randomly, just because they have an email address. Obviously, this is just another scam. If you really believe that there is ANY organization, anywhere in the world, that is going to give away millions of dollars weekly to people who are selected at random from email addresses, then we will question your sanity.

We've highlighted some of the obvious clues that it is a fraud. Notice the the use of free yahoo email accounts (not likely for a professional lottery!), gibberish phrases, many typos and misspellings, etc. Note that they have even included the real logo, from the Irish Lottery website.

See this page for much more information.
