Hi, I received the following email. It was obviously too good to be true. I gave the details that are asked for (stupidly), is there anyway they can scam me? Thanks, Becci.

    I received an email that purports I have won some ridiculous amount of money via a London National Lottery. I googled the information and found alerts and warnings about this company. I am lodging this complaint because I do not want to receive anything else from these scammers.

    UKNL Foundation - No e-mail is ever attached to lottery
    UKNL Foundation
    Seattle
    Washington
    United States

    I received several messages about my apparent winnings of a lottery that I had never entered. I checked out the actual website for the real U.K. Lottery; it is just like everywhere else, you can't win without purchasing a ticket and e-mail addresses are never used as a means for selecting winners.

    Hey what a surprise indeed...I wonder who really falls for this!
    And how on earth did they get my e-mail address?? I NEVER play lottery as I'm against the principle of taking money from others effortlessly...not to mention stealing it !!

    FYI that was the message in my e-mail box

    I got the same email, this is so stupid
    I dont see how someone could possibly fall for this?
    Like someone would actually give out all their details to win a fake about of money.
    Honesty, poeple should think logically before they try and scam people

    yeah got the same one. exact same serial numbers and everything... hilarious. this "lottery coordinater" must be about one evolutionary step away from a fish. if he WAS the coordinater, he would undoubtebly be on the net somewhere, yet he doesn't seem to have considered that it is intrinsic in most humans to investigate and explore and that most of us would google his ### and find a reference to him on a complaints board! Seth Hickerson, or whatever your real name is... i tip my hat to you. someone as dense as you must have no worries whatsoever.

    on another note, i can't believe that some of you gave over the information they asked for! C'MON PEOPLE! for shame

    Yes i got the same email a couple of days ago.

    It was too good to be true so i just saved it to check on it later, as i currently don't live in the uk.

    It was a good idea to check verizon's website and see there are others in the same situation as me.

    I didn't reply to the mail anyways!

    i receieved the same email, my partner recieves many of these types of email so i was instantly suspicious,
    i wouldnt give out these details as they are questions that would be used for security purposes..
    ie: a mobile phone company, telephone banking
    date of birth, postcode, address, telephone number etc can all be used for security questions..
    meaning affectivly they will have enough of your details to accomplish this..
    failing that it could be identity fraud..
    i would not trust any type of email like that.. your personal information is personal .. you will be amazed what you can do with even just a name...

    Yes I get the same crap in the email as you guys.
    If you didnt participant in any thing how on earth are you going to inform that you are the winner? They are very stupid. But very sad there are someone who fall in this. Let's educate the people dont fall for this!

    if you have given them your name, phone, address but no banking information, what could they do to you? One of my friends have just received the same type of email and stupidly enough to provide the info they've asked for. She is very worried now.
