Re: Bonus Lottery Promotion Prize Awards Winning Notification Scam

I just recently came across this internet scam email, and because the message was sent twice I have decide to show you the sample of the emails I got titled "National Lottery" which is suppose to be for UK citizens. How come a Nigeria is getting a winning notification? The subject of the letter in an attachment sent to me is RE: BONUS LOTTERY PROMOTION PRIZE AWARDS WINNING NOTIFICATION.

If you don't know let me remind you that internet scam is one of the fastest and quickest way to make money online. What these  scam guys just do is to target one of the most popular company like Nokia and Microsoft. I recently shared two separate post about these two companies; Nokia Live Lottery Mobile Promotion Scam  and Microsoft Corporation Award 2012 Promotional Scam.
National Lottery Bonus Promotion Scam
Just below is the scam mail, make sure you don't fall for this scam. Where it is going to lead to is that they will ask you to pay a processing fee to the person who will make the money available to you
