#1: I’m not a distinguished professional. I’m unemployed.

#2: Any idiot with half a brain goes to the National Lottery website, and finds out that one cannot play the lottery w/o a sterling bank account or trusted friend in the UK, of which I have neither.

#3: If your “claims agent” was part of the UK National lottery, wouldn’t he be using an email account that ended with “@lottery.co.uk”, or another European account, and not “@yahoo.com”? pretty rookie mistake there, bub.
