I recieved that same email 2 times and so did my mom they wanted my SSN And banking information
dont get involved with sweepstakes because they will really bug u ask u to buy stuff and give u free gifts that you end up paying for and its just a scam
1 – there is NO UK-Canada Lottery
2 – Why would a UK-Canada lottery ask you to contact someone in Africa?
3 – You can't win ANY lottery if you did not BUY a lottery ticket from a store selling lottery tickets
4 – You can't win ANY UK lottery if you are not a UK resident
5 – You can't win ANY Canadian lottery if you are not a Canadian resident
6 – Winners are NOT notified by email. You have to take your lottery ticket back to the store where you bought it to claim your winnings
