FURTHER FOLLOW-UP FROM CAMELOT UK LOTTERY.
The National Lottery Dear Sir/Madam
Thank you for your email dated 11 January 2016.
I would like to advise you that the notification you have received is in no way connected with Camelot or The National Lottery.
Camelot is aware that there are many organisations that attempt to obtain payment or personal details electronically from people under a variety of pretexts. The National Lottery and indeed other lotteries are sometimes falsely used as part of these scams. It appears that some of these organisations are based overseas, often targeting people resident abroad.
Please be aware that there are many e-mail scams and attempts to de-fraud people using methods similar to these, and I would warn strongly against pursuing this type of email without rigorous investigation to establish whether it is of a genuine nature. At The National Lottery, we do not contact any player who has won a prize by unsolicited letter, email or telephone call. Nor do we ask for up-front fees before paying a prize or personal information.
To be eligible to win a prize on The National Lottery players must have placed an initial stake, either at a retailer or at www.national-lottery.co.uk. Additionally, Camelot has strict procedures, as agreed with our regulator, the Gambling Commission, for informing players via email who have won a prize on The National Lottery via our new media channels.
If you think you have been the victim of a scam, contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040, textphone 0300 123 2050.
I hope the above information has been helpful. You can find further information on our security advice on the following page of our website by copying and pasting the following web address into your browser:
