I almost ignored £90,000 winning lottery email because I thought it was a scam – winning feels incredible | The Sun

A LUCKY woman almost missed out on a £90,000 lottery jackpot after believing an email telling her she had won was a scam.

The 47-year-old Michigan woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, thought it was impossible that she had scooped the eye-watering cash sum.

She thought the email telling her of her £90,000 ($110,689) winnings was fake, she told Michigan Lottery.

The winner said: “I knew that by playing the Monthly Jackpot game online, I was earning entries into a second chance giveaway.

“I never thought I would win the second chance drawing, so I was just hoping for an instant win while playing the games."

After receiving the email, she was so sure it couldn't be true that she left it until the next day to do anything about it.
