No, do not do this. It is a known scam. No reputable lottery organisation would ask you for funds of that magnitude. You have given him bank details. I would transfer any funds in that account elsewhere in case there is a hacking attempt. You are lucky that you thought twice about this. Many people I have dealt with have not been so lucky and have lost their money because once you send it you will hear nothing further, you will win nothing and you will be a lot poorer. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
