I received this email about winning the UK national lottery. I should have known it was a scam from the begining but I didn't check on the addresses until the senders requested money to be sent Western Union to a private party. It is a scam and they are requesting a substantional amount of money. I hope that someone will be able to track theses thiefs down and bring them to justice.
