Lottery Scam Email:
Afro Europe, Noordeinde The Netherlands
"from scam name: Richard Martins"

Here is yet another typical scam lottery winning notification. 


Below is another example of a fake lottery. Again, poor spelling, grammar, punctuation and sentence structure gives him away, as well as the preposterous idea of randomly giving away millions of dollars based on email addresses.  You'd have to be JUST PLAIN STUPID to believe this happens!

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!
