    Answer this question. Why would a company just randomly give out money unless there was something in it for themselves?

    Due to the number of lottery scams no legitimate company would ever notify you by email that you have won a prize.

    Every email that states you have won a lottery or there is money waiting for you is a scam. There will be a followup asking for a prepayment of some type of fee to receive the money. Haven't you noticed that even though you have won 100 million your name appears nowhere in the email? It may not even contain your email address. If people were winning 100 million every day it would be on the news with pictures of the lucky people.

    Unless you enter a lottery or contest, such as with one of the magazine companies, any notification is a scam. If you get 100 million you will not be notified by email.
