I got an email from "The National Lottery" .... The scary part of this email is this "Any breach of confidentiality on the part of the Winners will result to disqualification" DO NOT BELIEVE THIS. They don't want people to tell other people about their scam. These crooks are getting smarter.

 

REMEMBER: you can't get disqualified from a scam so be warned and tell everyone.

        These things are no-brainers.

        You get a letter or an email. The first question is" "Did I enter the (insert name here) Lottery"?

        If you didn't, it can be nothing else but a scam. You don't win huge amounts of money from lotteries you didn't enter. For some reason, this seems to be something a lot of people can't grasp.
