If you receive a letter like the one described above, or any letter claiming you have won an “international” lottery, throw it away! Unless you specifically entered a Maryland Lottery promotion, you will never be contacted by Lottery officials informing you that you have won a prize. Under Maryland law, it is unlawful for a person, another state, or foreign government to sell a lottery ticket in the State of Maryland.
