AVOIDING LOTTERY SCAMS
Scammers use emails, phone calls or letters which try to trick you into thinking you've won a lottery prize and may use real or convincing company logos in their emails or letters.
They do this so that they can ask you for money to release the prize or for your personal details, which they can use to try to steal your identity.
If you are in any doubt about an email you have received, please do not select any links in it. Instead, type the website address directly into your browser.
It is not necessary to select links in emails we send to you to claim your prizes.
Remember that we will never ask you for money to release a prize and we do not give details of winning prize amounts in our emails.
