[From http://www.national-lottery.co.uk/player/p/help/yoursecurity/commonscams.ftl:

... Lottery scam (fraudulent) emails are increasing at an alarming rate.

Scam emails try to persuade the recipient to submit personal information or to part with money as an upfront payment in order to release a 'winning' lottery prize.

As a general rule, if you have not purchased a ticket for The National Lottery, you will not have won a prize, and you should treat the email with absolute caution. ...]
