This scam was sent to me by a friend. No, my friend isn't a scammer! She forwarded me a scam email that she had received. I like the idea that the scammer says you are disqualified if you are under 20 years old!
Yes - it's a scam. There was no lottery, just a scammer hoping to take money from you by charging you fees.
