Lottery scams

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

Scam emails try to persuade you to submit personal information or to send some money as an upfront payment in order to release a 'winning' lottery prize.

General rule is that if you have not purchased a lottery ticket, you will not have won any prize, and you should treat the scam email with absolute caution.
