BRITISH  INT'L E-LOTTERY  PROMOTION
The Free Lottery Sweepstakes

Below is another example of a fake lottery; this one from the "British Internatonal E-Lottery Promotion Sweepstakes". They can't even spell "International" correctly... Note the usual clues to an obvious fraud that we have highlighted in the letter; keep confidential, selected by a random computer lottery, use of free hotmail/yahoo email accounts, etc. Isn't odd that the "British Int'l E-Lottery" uses a free Yahoo email address in Hong Kong?  The Chinese government might find that odd, too (not that China, home of most copyright infringement and fraud in the world, cares!)

It is a typical scam sweepstakes winning notification. Also see these pages:
