“Mrs Weller Milla! (where DO these scammers get their fake names from??) claims I’ve won 12,904,500 somethings (but doesn’t tell me what).
She then gives me a link to check my winnings.
This is what the EuroMillions website tells me about claiming REAL winnings – “Wins over £5,000 must be claimed by calling our National Lottery Customer Care Team on 0845 278 8000, and will be paid by cheque.”
Undeterred by this, the scammer tells me to email him with a load of unnecessary details, including my marital status.
You cannot win the Euromillions unless you have bought a ticket. Ignore this scammer, who is after your money.
