Lottery Scam Email:
Lottery Winners International
"DR BENJAMIN VAN PRIJS, Mike Davids"

The "Lottery Winners International" scam is just another obvious example of a fake lottery. It is obviously a scam, no lottery notifies its winners, the scam claims you won simply because you have an email address! 

Don't be fooled: There is no such thing as a "computer ballot system" and NO legitimate lottery that will notify you by email; especially when you didn't buy a ticket from them!

If you still think this might be legit, see the highlighted passages in the email below, that draw attention to the other, additional signs of a scam; such as  keep confidential, selected by a random computer lottery of email addresses, no website of their own, use of free hotmail/yahoo email accounts, numerous misspellings, poor grammar and punctuation, etc.
