    I got the same email, winning more money but with a different reference number. I called the gaming commission in the UK and I am waiting to hear back from them. I'm sure it's a scam, but at least i can try to catch the person. If you follow through not giving information but asking them to send you a certified cheque they ask you for something like $775 usd before they send you your money...NOT!

    The only thing is that it dosen't follow the standard fraud email, no links attached, and they have copyrights on the bottom for the gaming board which anyone can check out. On top of being charged with fraud you can also be charged with forging copyrights! I will keep everyone posted once I talk to the gaming commission but don't send any info or money!

    I also received the exact same e-mail, word for word, same sort code, registered code, and amount verbatim. It's a total scam. I hope someone catches these people.

    I received the same exact email in 2 different email accounts that I have...I questioned the guy about this and informed him I am not giving out any information...well he did not send me what I was looking for...so I wrote back stating that I went to my attorney (I work for an attorney) and he is wanting proof or documents backing this email up...needless to say, he has not yet responded, but was very quick in responding to my first email...

    This is so obviously a scam, lottery agents wouldn't ask you to send emails back with your personal details, you would have to go in somewhere to prove your identity, etc, and they also wouldn't ask you to send any monies to receive money you have won. I also received the same following email;
