Is the USAFIS Greencard Lottery Program real or is it a scam?

I just received an email from and they said I just won the lottery and are asking for $685 for the processing fees to be sent through Western Union to a specific address in UK... it sounds so suspicious so I want to know if there are others out there who have actually won or have been scammed by this organization. Thank you!

some people think lotteries are scams or bogus. If you have a system or a plan you can increase your odds. Do your homework and have a system in place!!
