    Amazing that the same numbers that won on June 16th also won on the July 4th and were attached to MY email address! Amazing coincidence! Guess I'd better claim my winnings soon, but first I'm waiting for that banker in Hong Kong to wire me that 5 million from that dead Iraqi's bank account. I've just been SO lucky lately with all the money I've won overseas. Oh, wait. Shoo, I thought my brains fell out of my head there for a minute! No, they are still there. Okay. Good luck to the rest of you on your lucky wins, too! Got to go. Time for my meds before we have dinner and "group".

    You people really need to do some thing.

    How can people misuse a name of such a big organization like National U K Lottery. YOu people need to monitor such frauds. This is not at all true that you have won 715000 GBP. It is a fake.

    This same email appeared today. It is a total scam, so much is that I didn't even need to open it. I just deleted it. This beckons me to mention about a scam emailed to me two months ago in regards to a company that deals in furniture, repair and restoration. They we're seeking an "agent" in the U.S. prior to them actually opening a physical location here in the US. And I would be compensated 10% plus expenses.

    I guess I was bored and could see this scam a mile away, so I played the game. I am in possession of 4 international money orders in the approx amount of $832.01 each. That is I have 4 Wal Mart money order for the same exact amount each. They we're sent to me "blank". Just fill in the amount, deposit them into my bank, deduct my 10%, "WIRE" them the balance back and keep in mind 'TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE" and viola, you're in business up until the the time your bank tells you the good news.

    The money orders by the way look real. The money order numbers even change from one to the next. These guys are pros. So is the computer/printing company that is doing this for them. There is even perforated edges. UNREAL BUT SO REAL.
    Unless you are used to seeing money orders, you too would have cashed in on this scam.
