If there was indeed a company running a lottery called the 6 Ball Games Lottery handing out cash prizes of 2 million pounds, wouldn’t you think that they would have a functioning web site? Wouldn’t you expect them to send out their winning notifications from their own domain rather than from an msn.com address? And last, wouldn’t you expect them to send you a unique e-mail addressed to you only on such an important matter as a payout of 2,000,000 Pounds is?
If you received the below mail, just throw it out with the rest of your garbage spam. It’s nothing than just another attempt to scam you of some money for registering, courier services and probably some mock export taxes…
