Hello everyone     I remember reading somewhere there was a site that you could go to to verify if a lottery was legit. I have been recieving several notifications that I have won (without entering) in several UK lotteries.Is there any way to check these out?

    All the information you need is in the email.
    1. Are they telling you that you've won a lottery you didn't enter?
    2. Is the email from somebody you didn't give your email address to?
    3. Is the email address of the lottery at Yahoo, Hotmail, or some other web-based email provider?

    If the answer to any of those questions is yes, then it's a scam.
