    do you think the lottery would give their transfer agents a hotmail email address?

    FAKE, if someone was giving away £500,000.00 do you think they would have a free hotmail address.

    lol i don't think thats the main reason you can tell its a scam!

    no this is not a scam, you really have won half a million from a lottery you never entered

    What makes you think it's a scam ?
    Looks really legit to me :-)

    Excellent, I have just received an identical mail. So it looks like we are the joint winners!!!:gift:
    Seriously, I hope the OP has now realised that it is just a big scam, often originating in Nigeria ( I am not sure why, though). Just google for 'lottery scam'.
    I receive them almost every day, I think since a friend of mine from India forwarded me one to investigate.
    Watch out for the 'Bank security scams' (phishing) as well, they often appear very legit.

    some of you guys are quite rude?? i have never recieved an email like that before and i was just asking peoples opinoin i wasnt expecting some of the replys i got. no, im not really sharp! thanks for pointing it out :'(

    Dont worry about it m8, some people seem to forget we all have to learn from somewhere, you are not the first and wont be the last to look @ scams like this and think is it genuine or not, just look @ the news and see how many poeple fall for these scams (even people you would think wouldnt) some of these scams are better then other's but a major give away was the yack number +44-70457-49648
    and the fact that someone as big as the lottery was using a free email account, best bet is when you get emails like this copy and paste the title into google as i no there is a site (cant remember the url) that list all scams like this ,:thumbsup:
