Oh look, a lottery scam!

I've just received a letter - not an email but an actual letter, complete with hand-affixed stamp - from the 'International Lottery Commission' saying I've won a shedload of money in a Spanish lottery run by 'La Primitiva'.

Trouble is, I never entered a Spanish lottery.

Trouble is, they're using the U.K. National Lottery logo.

Trouble is, the offices are in Madrid, but the letter's been sent from Malaga.

Trouble is, I plugged the names into my usual search engine and, well, was less than surprised to learn that it's a scam.

Well, it's a break from the usual Nigerian scams.
