AILA Doc No. 04091412 | Dated September 14, 2004
AILA members report that an email is being sent to some people purporting to be from "dvlottery.state.gov", telling people that are "one of the lucky winners" of the DV2004 visa lottery, and requesting that they send $349.67 in "clearance/acceptance fees". These emails are fakes, and should be ignored.
