This lotto award notification that just arrived in my GMail inbox looks new. At leas, I’d say that the Turkish footer is completely new to me, as the lack of reasonable contact info. Maybe a sign of a newcomer in the lottery scamming business? The names are all wrong, the email address could have been picked with better judgement, and the mail itself is too much of a cut and paste.
A scam and fraud attempt for sure. If you get one, don’t bother with it. Just throw it away.
