Apparently, the fraudsters assume a victim will find it easier to believe in a generous donation from a complete stranger than in a lottery ticket that they have purchased themselves. Here is another letter in the same vein:
The link in the letter leads to a Daily Mail article which does indeed confirm that someone has won over $60 million in the lottery, but hasn’t collected their money. Both these letters are strikingly similar to Nigerian scam. The potential victim is not reeled in by the prospect of a cash prize, but is tempted by a donation or a dodgy money-making proposal in supposed partnership with the message writer.
