Yes, definitely a fraud - I get loads. They are not a courier service and why would you get anything from the UK lottery when you are in Sweden?!

Yea i think it might be fraud , the lottery is called camelot in this country and it doesnt look like a very proffesional letter by the way they said they would not deliver it to street corners, DO NOT SEND THEM MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes. Unless you have actually registered for the United Kingdom Lottery and are sure you have won, that would be their first mistake. Second mistake: The Lottery, TMK, does not require you to pay any money to receive your winnings... More

You say it was in your sent mail, so it's not a reply. Did you contact them? Then it's not a reply. If it is in you in box it's just mail. These scams have been going around for donkey's years.

Are you serious? It's definitely SPAM. Who says "Good day to you" and "You are to please confirm your mailing address" for starters. Who delivers to street corners? Does *anybody* call it "THE UNITED KINGDOM LOTTERY"? Which delivery company ever tells you what colour your parcel is? ... I won't go on! Delete.

It is a fraudulent e-mail, what is commonly known as phishing.

You should report this message to your e-mail service... More
