No, you havn't really won the lottery

Fortunately, my sister does listen to some of the things I say. So when she recieved an email telling her she'd won £62,000 on the national lottery she was quite skeptical despite the fact that she does play the online lottery. Unfortunatly for her, it was a phising attempt and not genuine at all. It had many of the hallmarks of a fraud email by not using her real name, asking to send details that they'd already have to an irrelevant email address etc.

Once again, it is important to remind people not to trust these kind of emails. Real companies would never ask you to respond to an email with personal/payment details etc.
