ATTENTION:YOUR NAME(Your Parcel Mode Of Delivery Choose An Option)

I seem to have received a series of scams that somehow involve the UK National Lottery.  A reader forwarded me this one.  If this really was from a courier company – it would be non of their business to know what is in the parcel they are due to deliver to you.  Also – the sender would pay the delivery cost.

This is a scam.  There is only one way to win the UK National Lottery – buy a ticket and check the winning numbers yourself.  This scammer even tells you up front how much money to send as fees.  Don’t reply – you haven’t won anything.
