The notification email is a bit contradictory on the amount, but I know it's legitimate because the claims agent is both certified, and accredited.

    This is obviously a scam, why are you claiming it's real?  We try to educate people about scams -- not make them worse by causing confusion.

          Interesting parody, Floyd and hopefully it will help people understand no matter how good it looks, it's probably not true. In this example a Red Flag should be raised when someone sends you an email asking for your email address. 

          Another thing shows it's an obvious scam is the scammer made a 3,3 million pound mistake on the winnings.

            Looks like an example of lottery satire to me.

              Remember having bought tickets? No? It's a scam.

              Have tickets? Check with the official lottery website.

                  Your failure (and others obviously) to recognize the facetiousness of his post makes you the pot as the old saying goes. . .

                      "not make them worse by causing confusion."

                      I know some of the members here aren't especially bright, but I would have thought this was one area where they wouldn't be confused all that easily. The responses make it look like everybody recognized it as a scam, although other aspects of it apparently proved too difficult for some to grasp.

                        Actually the members here tend to be pretty smart.  Not sure why you would insult people like that.

                        Anyway, if you're going to post about a scam, you should be aware that posting "satire" is not a good idea, because your "satire" might be interpreted completely differently by someone who either does not share your type of humor, or perhaps English is not their first language and they take you seriously.
