PROTEA WINNERS ORGANIZATION LOTTERY SOUTH AFRICA
Here are a couple of clues, idiots:
- It’s Johannesburg, not Johannesbury,
- The National Lottery in South Africa is managed by “Uthingo Management (Pty) Ltd“
- All potential notifications will come from “nationallottery.co.za” addresses (most certainly not from “hotmail.com”
- These guys are quite professional, and it is unlikely they will ask for “the following informations“…
- Contact numbers for the National Lottery are widely available
- Now bugger off and go bother some Yankees…
