There is no such lottery. Every month, thousands of those email messages are sent out by lottery scammers, to trick their potential victims into sending them their personal information and money, to collect so-called lottery prizes. Always remember to verify the authenticity of a Michigan Lottery prize or award by contacting them at their website at www.michiganlottery.com, and clicking on the "Contact Support" link.

Also, never respond to an email message claiming that you are a lottery winner with your personal or financial information. Legitimate lottery companies do not request personal or financial information via email message, and will never ask winners to send money or financial information in order to collect their prizes.

    Just received such a scam, first time when GMail didn't flag it as 'spam'. Someone should contact Google and alert them of this.
