I won the lottery!

People must still be falling for these kind of phishing attacks where you get a notice about getting something for nothing as I saw this in my spam folder today saying I won the “Espanyol Lotter”. I sincerely hope that if ever you see these messages that offer something for nothing that your Phishing and Spam senses start going off. Think before you click a link or respond to an email!
