I got this email informing me I won a prize in the Irish Lottery, which is strange since I have not bought any tickets. And I`m thousands of miles away in Australia and the Irish State Lottery doesn't have a subscription service.

    Why would the "Irish Lottery Sweepstakes International Program" use Bell South and Yahoo email addresses?

      Irish Lottery Scam

      Lottery scams are one of the most common types of fraudulent email currently hitting inboxes. The Irish Lottery Scam email shown below is an example of one of these scam messages. Be very cautious of any unsolicited email that informs you that you have won a large sum of money in an international lottery. There is no prize. Lottery scammers often use the names of genuine lotteries in an attempt to add credibility to their claims. This scam email is not in any way associated with the real Irish National Lottery. Those who initiate a dialogue with these scammers by replying to the lottery scam emails will eventually be asked for advanced fees to cover expenses associated with delivery of the supposed "winnings". They may also become the victims of identity theft.

        Lottery News

        20/November/2006
        WARNING

        It has come to our attention that members of the public have received correspondence by e-mail or letter purporting to come from the Irish National Lottery advising them that they have won a substantial amount of money. Such correspondence often requests the addressee`s personal and bank details. The Irish National Lottery never notifies prize winners in this manner. To win and claim a prize in the Irish National Lottery you must be in possession of a prize winning ticket.

        You are advised not to respond to any such correspondence.

          It has always seemed pretty simple to me.  If anyone tells me I have won a contest/lottery/etc which I did not personally enter, then those people are not to be trusted.

          You can't win if you don't play, as the old saying goes.

            It can't be any more clear than this.  Really, it can't.  If an older person falls for this scam they shouldn't be in control of their finances.  If a younger person falls victim to this age old scam, then they are foolish and have paid a lot of money for a simple life education course.  I offer the same course for 10 bucks...Jester
