Lottery Scam Email:
Techie Charity Promotion
Another scam lottery, even the name, Techie Charity Promotion, sounds
ridiculous. Another "email address lottery" that receives it's money from
taxes and "large corporations"; oh, yeah, right. Governments and
corporations do NOT give away money to people who have an email address.
Note the other clues to an obvious fraud that we
have highlighted in the
letter; keep confidential, selected by a random computer lottery of email
addresses, use of free hotmail/yahoo email accounts, etc.

Typical signs of a scam:
The recipient "won" without buying a ticket (so where does the
money come from?)
"For security reasons" you're not allowed to talk to anyone
about it (especially the police or consumerfraudreporting.org!) - which ought to
be odd since lotteries thrive on publicity!
