Lottery Scam Email:
NL Lotto 2007 - Allan Wouters / MaryAnn Klose

NL Lotto 2007?  NL Lotto 2007 Promo?  This scam lottery winning notification is almost amusing since, they never even claim a name for the organization that is sponsoring it.  We suppose from the return email address used ( payoutoffice_nllotto2007promo@yahoo.de ) that we are supposed assume one of these names.  But of course, it's a free Yahoo email address.  Hardly, what a real lottery would use.  Oddly, REAL lotteries (that give out millions each year) can afford to buy their own domain name and email address (which costs less than $200 per year)

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. And despite wanting to give you $1,500,000... they can't even address you by name (attn: Sir/Madam).


Attn:Sir/Madam,
