If you bought a ticket, and the number matches the lottery as shown on TV or newspaper, DO NOT THROW AWAY the ticket. Give Jay 1% share of the winnings, and keep the rest of the money for yourself.
However, if you received this type of email below saying you have won by random selection of email address, just give him/her a good #$%^& and move on.
We need to educate the scammers how a real lottery is done.
All names and money stated in this email are fakes.
