Have you received an email from "EURO NATIONAL LOTTERY, online Sweepstakes International program" telling you that "your
email address won in the second category" or something similar? It is a
scam. No legitimate, legal lottery notifies winners via email (see footnote) The scammers may
change the names and details, but it is still a scam!
Below is another example of a fake lottery; this email claims to
be from the "EURO NATIONAL LOTTERY, online Sweepstakes International program".
