Southern Sun International Lottery / False lottery

1 United Kingdom Review updated:

The company is approved by the british government lottery and gaming board. Do not believe this lottery. They send me a scan copy of the lottery award winning certificate and the prize amount is 1,500,000.00 british pounds sterling. Beware and save your money.

    I just received the same email. However, the claims manager seems to change his name quite often. The name on mine is Kenneth Brown. Surely people aren't stupid enough to fall for this. But on the other hand, I guess some are or the scammers wouldn't be doing this.
