Oxfam scam warning

Security experts have warned of a new email scam that purports to be a lottery notification from Oxfam.

The emails claim that the recipient has won £850,000 in a lottery run by the international aid relief organisation, and asks for bank account details to transfer the 'winnings'.

The scam tells recipients to contact a Live.com email address, and lists a UK 070 personal phone number for people who wish to make contact via telephone.
