I got an email saying i won in the UK Mega Millions Lottery

Resolved Question:

I got an email saying i won in the UK Mega Millions Lottery® draw held on Fri-03/25/2011 .I check on line for lotto scams and found a us Mega Millions Lottery and checked the #'s.
the mail i got had a ticket attached the #'s match a drawing on 3/11/2011 in the us.
It does show the 3's in the uk drawing but not sure if it's a scam. these scammers are pretty slick. I filed a complaint with IC3.
question is it a scam or not?

Hello, welcome to Just Answer.

Yes, this is a scam. No legitimate lottery will contact you by email. You did the right thing in reporting the event to the IC3.
