Irish National Lottery / Online lottery scam!

United States Review updated:
5
I received this email, I did some internet research and feel that it is very definitely a scam. I wanted to include it in my complaint. I will be deleting it as soon as I have finished this complaint. I just hope that it will help to find who is doing this and keep someone from being scammed.

I have received several such scam emails over the past year. It is a cruel and heartless practice and I wish there were a way these criminals could be stopped. But, unfortunately, anyone is able to use the internet for scams and the chances of being caught are pretty nil.

I am happy to say that I didn't fall for any of them. I am suspicious by nature of something that sounds too good to be true. I hope this will help. And thanks.

my doubt is when they are ready to give a big prize money why cant they bear very small exp for clearing the consignment
if we won the money realy they can deduct the duty charges and the balance money remitt directly to our bank a/c
