UK National Lottery - FAKE OR REAL?

Hi everyone I received an e-mail from british-national-lottery.co.uk that I've won 850, 000 GBP. I'm wondering if it's a scam because this is the first time I receive something like that. And at first they want me to go in UK personally to claim the prize. There's also an option to email the lawyer who's affiliate of the company just in case I can't get the prize personally.

I tried searching the net because I'm in doubt especially on how they have my e-add since I'm not doing any activities in U.K sites. Later on, I told them leave me alone cause they won't get anything from me. Then someone from the FBI UK sent me an e-mail message saying that it's not one of the fraud activities. They even want me to send them IDENTIFICATION such as passport, driver's license and any company IDs to prove that I'm really that person.

Two days had passed and I'm still in doubt. What do you think guys? Is it true or not? Please help me.

Let me post the sample of what they sent me.

Hi Toma,
I believe its a fraud, reason being calls to 070...numbers are charged @ more than 20 p per minute so if you make a call to that number to know more about this fraud, you will lose money and someone else will make money through 070.. number.
And a simple rule of life - "Nothing is for free in this world". Moreover, during current recession scenario none of any organisations can think of distributing money for free. Cunning brains behind such emails try to gain your personal details for a possible identity theft and misuse.

FRAUD, FRAUD, FRAUD Same thing is happening to me. I won 1, 250, 000.00 British Pounds.
I did not buy anything, got randomly selected by my email.
I did some research and find you here as well as other people that are getting scamed.
I recieve many scam emails and letters, but this one is very professional, It will be great and so lucky to get money like this but is never true. I even suspect about the real lotterys how they give out the prizez.

Try to find the fbi agent in the real fbi
The fbi real web is fbi.gov.us not fbi-gov-us

I wish this scamers get fucked.
 
i am in the same situation So what to do ?
 
I think it's a fraud! Most of the spelling and grammar in these e-mails is really bad and yes they look very professional etc but it's obviously a scam. As stated above 'in this life nothing is for free', besides...also from what I've read above some of you have to pay to receive the money ??? WARNING BELLS!!!
Just delete the e-mails...that's what i'm doing!!!

during last two months, i got an email from different agenceis, persons, and websites, all of them told me that i am the real winner of UK NATIONAL LOTTERY, so i confused them and i want to help me, and tell me its FAKE or REAL.
thare were individuals to mension here :
1. ADDISON MAHER, UK national lottery
2. MR.PERRY STEGMAN, FBI internet fruad watch
3.MR TOPAL MILES WEST, chelsea building soceity bank.
please give me full information about these guys if you know
 
I get these emails in my spam box all the time. I will not answer any of them. THey are all scams. From what I understand people in nigeria are sitting behind computers sending these out by the millions just waiting for one person to take the bite. Don't waste your money or time. You could get taken for thousands of dollars and this is what they want.

Its a scam i have had a few of these, the first one i got telling me i had won asked me to send details to a hotmail address!! Any real company would not be using a free email address like that. The email that sent it which they ask you DO NOT reply to belonged to a university doctor who i checked online and seem he was dead, so they are using a hacked email. Also people do not give huge sums of money out for no reason. Its a SCAM so please do not give out your details!!!
