    Its pure SPAM, most 419 and lottery scams involve security companies or other financial institutions when committing their scams. Most of these companies were fraudulently created for the sole purpose of committing this crime.

    Delete it!

    Not had this one but how would any lottery organisation know the name of winners when they are supposed to be annonymous?

    At the end of the day if you didn't enter it delete it. This is a known scam in the UK (Was on Watchdog not long ago) they conned people into thinking they won the dutch lottery and conned them into parting with money for supposide tax fees and admin costs then they never heard from them again. There is one major flaw supposidly there is no dutch lottery...:blink
