The scammer here claims to represent the "British Lottery", and says that I have "won" £710K.
The email contains a raft of spelling and grammatical errors, and is clearly not written by a Brit.
The scammer then signs off "British National Lottery", using a different company name.
Oh, one more thing, there is no such thing as "The British Lottery", or "The British National Lottery".
