If you replied to one of the fake lottery notification emails (see samples here), then you will likely receive one of these so-called Prize Transfer Forms. We recommend you delete it straight away. DO NOT reply to it by any method.   Any information you given them will help them to rob your bank account, use your credit card or steal your identity,  YOU HAVE NOT WON ANYTHING BY EMAIL - IT DOES NOT HAPPEN!!!
