If you take a close look at the "Oslo Lottery Certificate", you can see that it actually is a modified certificate from the (also fake) Global Mega Lottery.

It is also similar to this certificate from the Euro-Afro-American Sweepstake Lottery [Note that Kenneths email address is kennethjordan_euro_afro_lottery@hotmail.com]:

I dont pay the fees, so the next day the bank contacts me:
