1st December, 2008.

Dear Customer,

My office is in receipt of your email. This is to inform you that we are in possession of your winning check of £250, 653 (Two Hundred And Fifty Thousand Six Hundred And Fifty Three pound sterling) which was sent to us from the UK Lottery Promo Department and was deposited in a suspense account in our bank. A hard cover insurance policy has been placed on your winnings, (which implies that your winnings cannot be tampered with until it is in your custody).

The mode of the payout of your winnings stipulated by the UK Lottery Promo is online wire transfer. The reason is that your check was deposited in a suspense account for security reason, besides winners outside UK always find it difficult to cash the check easily hence our bank is not everywhere in the world. Consequently, you are therefore required to open an online account on your behalf, a pin/account number will be sent to you, to enable you log into your account and check your statement of account online.

It will also interest you to know that the initial opening deposit (also known as security deposit) will reflect in your newly opened account. Which means that the new balance in your account will become a summation of your winning prize and the opening deposit. You are at liberty to transfer the whole money from your account to your local account if you wish to discontinue banking with us. You are expected to choose from any of the online account opening stated below that is most convenient for you.

Regular Online Account:
a) Opening Deposit... £280.00
b) Activation Charges ... £220.00
TOTAL £500.00 (Five hundred pounds sterling)
Duration of transfer... 7 (Seven) working days.

Preterm Online Account:
a) Opening Deposit... £350.00
b) Activation Charges ... £260.00
TOTAL £610 (Six Hundred and ten pounds sterling)
Duration of transfer... 5 (Five) working days.

Premium Online Account:
a) Opening Deposit... £450.00
b) Activation Charges ... £300.00
TOTAL £750 (Seven hundred and fifty pounds sterling)
Duration of transfer... 3 (Three) working days.

Platinum Online Account:
a) Opening Deposit... £550.00
b) Activation Charges ... £300.00
TOTAL £850 (Eight hundred and fifty pounds sterling)
Duration of transfer... Within 48 Hours.

NOTE: THE DURATION OF TRANSFER IS WITH RESPECT TO THE ACTUAL DATE WHEN YOUR ACCOUNT OPENING FORM IS RECEIVED AND BE INFORMED THAT THESE CHARGES CANNOT BE DEDUCTED FROM YOUR WINNING PRIZE DUE TO THE HARD COVER INSURANCE POLICY ON THE WINNING PRIZE.

I hope you understand that this is a strict banking procedure aimed at given the best services to our highly esteemed customers, considereing the amount of money which you have won and also to guarantee a successful and hitch free transfer.

I shall be sending you an Account Opening Form, as soon as you choose which of the online account you want to setup. You shall fill the form, append your signature, scan and send a photo page of any means of identification (International Passport or Drivers License) as email attachment.

I will await your response concerning this in order for me to advise you on payment modalities.

Note that we cannot setup your online without meeting up with the payment for your online account setup that most be paid before your online account will be setup to enable you transfer the funds to your local bank account.
.
Thank you for your anticipated co-operation
