Warning as scam letter claims 'lottery' cash win

A woman has warned people not to fall for a lottery scam after she was sent a letter saying she had won £700,000. In the letter, Christine Watts, of the Narborough Road area of Leicester, was told her numbers had come up on the "Euromillions Commonwealth of Nations online lottery programme".  "I knew it was a scam and that was obvious to me when I read the letter," said Mrs Watts, a 60-year-old receptionist. "But they are crafty devils and I know people can be taken in by these things."
