These thieving scumbags do not even try to make their story sound convincing.
They claim to be part of the UK National Lottery, yet the UK Lottery does not hold email draws; you have to buy a ticket, if you win you have to go to them with your claim.
Additionally, why is the scammer's agent based in the Netherlands?
Come on guys, you really will have to work a little harder than that if you think you are going to trick me out of my money.
Good News for you
