If you think this is real, ask yourself this question:  Why would an organisation based in the UK hold a random email draw and send you money just because the World Cup is taking place in South Africa – or taking place in any other country?

They wouldn’t, would they?  As it says at the top of every page of this site, no organisation anywhere ever holds random draws.  They are all scams.

If you make the mistake of replying, you will find a scammer asking you to send money.
