Thank you for your question. Be sure to go ahead and bookmark www.nateanswers.com for future questions.This is a classic advance fee or "419" scam. They are trying to get you to send a little money to get a lot of money in return. A legitimate lottery or contest would simply deduct the $220.00 from the winnings, not ask you to send it over using a Green Dot card. Another telling fact is that you were contacted by email. No legitimate lottery contacts you. You have to enter it and check the results yourself. So, in all, this is an effort to take your money. Do not put money on a Green Dot card and do not contact these people further.Please remember to only rate my answer when you are 100% satisfied.
