This, of course, is not from Free Lotto. It says it's from zpmc.net, which is in some oriental language, so I had Google translate it. The page says it's under construction. Free Lotto is a real site, run since 1999, where you can apparently win lottery prizes. I've never played, so I'm not sure how it works, or if it does work. To stay up for the 12 years that they claim, they must be making money somehow. The bottom line is that if you didn't go to Free Lotto's website, sign up, and play their games, then you didn't win.
Seriously, if you did not play even one single game with any lottery, why the hell would they call you or e-mail you out of the blue, and tell you that you've won? You never signed up, and never took any chances at winning, so they wouldn't. They wouldn't have any idea where to e-mail you at. It looks as if these scammers are trying to hook people who have played lotto games before, just as they try to hook people into giving up their bank account information when they may or may not have an account at the bank in question. They even list Free Lotto's winning numbers, straight off their website.
Furthermore, this scam-mail (near the top left on the webpage, below) says they want you to respond to a free Hotmail address. If this were Free Lotto, why would they not want you to respond to a freelotto.com address? It's because they have no access to Free Lotto's e-mail server. That's why all of these are scams, because they always want you to respond to a free e-mail address.
They even have the audacity to issue the warning, again, straight off of Free Lotto's website, trying to convince you that they are with Free Lotto. They're not. "Warning! Fraudulent e-mails are circulating, that appear to be using Free Lotto addresses, but are not from The Free Lotto. PLEASE REPORT IMMEDIATELY TO: email@example.com." LOL.

My name is Gary, and I live in the Midwestern United States. This site is intended to expose the frauds and scams that are so pervasive on the internet, especially today. One hundred per- cent of the e-mails you get that promise you millions are never, ever real. They'll tell you they're "dying," trying to gain your sympathy. They're not dying, they're lying. Click Here for the "Dying" scams. Don't fall for it, and never send them any money, no matter what they tell you. Oh, and good luck hacking this website. It's got a nice strong password on it.
