    Unless you've actually posted in a card with your contact detials on it - to appear on TV for the Winning Streak,
    then treat any calls with 'lotto themes' with great caution.

    Same goes for tax refunds, most charities and other winning notification claimant prizes.

    It's a scam.

    just came across this thread. This was actually not a scam. Just before xmas the national lottery were updating their system and accounts.
    Most likely the Op has an account for playing the lotto online and the call was in relation to this.

    I got a call from the number stating i had two online accounts which was the case and one had to be shut down. Got a cheque few days later for the balance that was in one of the accounts
