These guys area trying a different approach. Instead of just telling me I’ve won, they tell me “the transfer arrangement have changed”. Apparently their offices in the UK are closer to my country so I will “avoid problem of obtaining visa to the United Kingdom”. Shouldn’t be too much of a problem, I live in the UK!! And why would I need a visa – if I’ve won the lottery, they would send the money to me, wouldn’t they?
As usual, it’s all a scam. Just delete the email and don’t reply. The only way to win the UK National Lottery is to buy a ticket.
