Scam Mails: Charity Bonanza BBC Lottery Winning Notification From Mr. Byron Grote

Beware! Its a Cyber World: BBC Lottery Winning Notification

Today, I received following Lottery Winning Notification from Mr. Byron Grote; while I had never participated in any lottery draw.The link given in the mail is a valid link of website: BBC National Lottery Results. But I couldn't find the winning number provided through the mail below. 

Clearly, its a lottery scam to cheat innocent internet users and to steal personal information of the recipients for bad intents in the future.

This is a scam like many others in the form of Lottery Winning Notifications.
