There are series of lottery Scams circulating the internet. These Scam has no connection with the official NATIONWIDE LOTTO whatsoever, it is entirely fraudulent, and we suggest you forward any information you receive from these organizations to the appropriate authorities. <- off that site!

to win anything in a lottery that you have entered, let alone winning something in one that you haven't.

If nobody enters this mystery lottery one wonders where on earth they get £9 million prize money from..........but then they haven't got it have they - it's all just another attempt at internet fraud, isn't it?
