419 Scam Example: "LUCKYDAY E-MAIL LOTTERY INTERNATIONAL (ANDREW GORDON, Walker Smith)"

"LUCKYDAY E-MAIL LOTTERY INTERNATIONAL (ANDREW GORDON, Walker Smith)" is a scam operated by a gang at the Vic Viz Internet cafe in Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria and in the UK.

While there is a real "Lucky Day" lottery portal site in the Netherlands, which is part of the legitimate Dutch lottery company "De Lotto", neither Lucky Day nor De Lotto send out any winning notifications by email to people who never bought a lottery ticket from them. So if you received an email claiming you won in Lucky Day or De Lotto and you'd never heard of them before, you have received an example of the 419 scam, which is a type of fraud. "Lucky Day" and "De Lotto" do not have a payment office in either London or Manchester and like all legitimate lotteries it does not charge winners any fees before they can get their prize. In real lotteries you can not win unless you bought a ticket.

Please forward us replies of claims agents, especial money demands and payment instructions!

Below are some examples of such fake lottery winning notifications.
