Lottery Scam Email:
ZENITH International Lottery Headquarters
"from Bess Brown or Jean Hamilton"

Here is yet another typical scam lottery winning notification. 

 Also see this page for a sample in the UK.


Below is another example of a fake lottery. From this pathetic scam, we can see that the conman obviously didn't pay attention in school, as his spelling, grammar, punctuation and sentence structure are dismal. Heck, he even makes up words!

Don't be an imbecile: There is no such thing as a legitimate lottery that will notify you by email; especially when you didn't buy a ticket from them!
