Hello Dear ATS'ers

Does anybody knows about it?

For the love of all that is awesome, please just google it. Google really is a bitchin' tool when used properly.

All the more reason we need to keep it from falling into Skeletor's hands....

Are they asking for money so you can get your lotto winnings?
I smell a scam, but do google it. Good advice Magnivea..

The fact it's a "Hotmail" email address should ring the alarm bells. If it was a legit organisation then it would be using a company email account.

I'm from the UK and not seen this scam yet but plenty of the Euro Lottery ones.
Nevertheless, I'm sure there are those, blinded by the £ signs who would go along with it and get ripped off.

edit to add: just noticed that the phone number given is a cell phone number as well, probably a pay-as-you-go unit bought for cash so untraceable.
