419 Scam Example: "LUCKY DAY LOTTERY INTERNATIONAL"

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.

All phone numbers are Dutch mobile phones, all email addresses use free webmailers.

Below are some examples of such fake lottery winning notifications.
