This list contains examples of lottery scam emails that I have collected either via submissions from site visitors or directly from lottery scammers. New examples are added as soon as possible after I receive them.
However, it is important to understand that this is by no means a comprehensive list. The examples listed here represent only a small portion of the thousands of variations that are being or have been distributed. Lottery scammers are continually creating new names for their bogus lotteries. As well, they may use variations of existing names or combine previously used names in many different ways.
Many lottery scam emails are very similar except for the name of the bogus lottery and various details such as place names, dates and contact details. Often, whole paragraphs are repeated in lottery emails that have completely different names and details. This strong similarity is one way of quickly identifying a lottery email as a scam.
If you receive a lottery email that is not listed here but proves to be very similar in format, style and phrasing to one or more of the included examples, then it is highly probable that the email is a scam.
