Thank you for your question --- this is most definitely a scam! There are no international lotteries -- and Tesco does not have any lotteries. You can only win a lottery if you buy a ticket, and you would be aware you won the lottery and it would not be surprising (on one aspect) because you bought the ticket or entered hoping to win. Do not give your information to anyone. They are likely using the legit lawyers name, although you won't be talking to that attorney. Take all the information you have and report it to www.ic3.gov Please let me know if you need anything additional. If not, please rate positive.

This is a scam --- I know you would like to win the money but don't even talk to the people. Report it to www.ic3.gov. Any attorney would be listed with your state Bar association, and would have active contact information. Further, attorneys would not be the ones to give you lottery winnings -- a state lottery commission would be. This is a scam, through and through. Wish I could tell you otherwise.
