This is another Lotto scam, it’s the usual junk. Yup! you won a draw that you didn’t buy a ticket for, how lucky can you get? Now I know that many “undisclosed-recipients” will say that this is not a Nigerian 419’er since the contact telephone number is in the UK. If you bother to call the number, well check your phone bill and see where your call was forwarded to…Oh! If you are lucky it is to some place in West Africa and if you are not, it may be to a premium rate number where you will be charged by the minute at a ridiculous rate. The scammer “bottom Feeder” gets you one way or the other.
Perhaps I am being too hard on the Bums, maybe all they want is a few hundred bucks in advanced fees.
Solution, simple, don’t respond. It’s a scam good for the trash can.
