When I received this as a word document in a phishing email, I had to share. Take a look at the graphics – the scammers that sent this email are trying to look official by showing pictures of people who won their lottery; they are so incompetent that they actually used a picture from a Michigan Lotto Winner!
To top it all off, they claim to be using a new ‘java-based’ software package to generate results, as if that matters (perhaps their DOS based package gave away too many funds : ).
Here is the scam below:
