US EDV lottery system: FAKE email to cheat you!

I have been regularly getting fake email mentioning that I have been selected for EDV-2008. A sample of FAKE email you might receive. 7 days is very tempting to send the money. You will get an official letter in the mail if you win DV lottery, NOT AN EMAIL ! This is a well constructed email, so please be aware !! Consult with others before making decisions. Never send the money because this is the fake email and would like to cheat you
