1. Another phish from the infamous Staatsloterij International.

2. A lottery variant of the 419 style of scam. Correspondance will simply result in requests for 'administration fees' to cover various costs, but you'll never actually get any money back!

3. Notice that the sender uses a free, web based email address. A real company would almost certainly use their own.


" Sir/Madam It is our pleasure to notify you of the result of the Staatsloterij International programs held on the 29th day of October 2004."...

If you have received this email, please remember that it is very common for these email scams to be redistributed at a later date with only slightly different content or the same but with the fake page(s) hosted by a different provider. Also, once you have received one of these hoaxes, it is also common place to receive at least another one and usually a day or two after the first, although not necessarily from the same apparent sender.
