IF you receive an email regarding that you have won
an overseas lottery of 6,500,000 British Pounds,
beware....it is a scam.....it expects you, the
winner to send them a check for somewhere in the
vicinity of 5000.00 dollars before they will send it
to you.....Don't fall for it....if you get something like this and want to learn more,  use a search engine and look for the lottery by name,  it
will come up as a scam and is illegal for US citizens to participate in foreign/overseas lotteries.  

Just a heads-up,  I got one in my email today.  It
is blocked now,  so that I will not receive it again.  (DO NOT REPLY TO IT)

Thank you. If it sounds too good to be true it usually isn't true...I'll be on the look out for this.
