HI, I AM BENJAMIN BESRA FROM INDIA. I HAD RECIEVED A MESSAGE ON MY MOBILE DAT I HAVE WON 5000000 GBP INA A ONGOING PHONE NO. DRAW IN U.K. ON FURTHER APPROACH DEY HAV DEMANDED A PRIZE INSURANCE CERTIFICATE WHICH I'LL GET ONLY BY PAYING 686GBP i.e 53000 INR. AS THE SWIFT TRANSFER COST. PLEASE LEMME KNOW IS THIS FAKE OR NOT. ALSO GUIDE ME WAT SHOULD I DO FURTHER.


As per your response that you assured previously that the won amount would be credited into my account.
I trusted your assurance and fulfilled their (02 Telecommunication mobile No. draw) demands. Their demands as follows
(£686 GBP) for swift transfer.
I made the payment and mailed the receipt on 22-05-2009.
But soon I requested as I was informed that I have to pay a larger amount of (£5000GBP) as VAT for Inland Revenue. For one that i didn't receive and i don't know if i will receive.
What shall I do? Should I make the rest of the payment? But I am incapable of paying this large amount (VAT) and for one that I didn’t receive.
Even if I pay how will I be assured, that I will receive the won amount?
I am not a business man I am simply employee service man with limited earning due to which I cannot fulfill their required demands.

Could you please look into the matter I believe that won amount cannot be fragmented? But in few conditions rule can be bent a bit. “Since I cannot afford to pay this huge amount, could you please get them agreed to deduct the VAT from won amount itself.
As me the beneficiary I do not have any objection for them to deduct the (VAT) from the won amount. If they don’t then I doubt, if I really won or they are Fraud. If they don’t agree then I would request u to request them to return my deposit money which I made for the swift transfer.
Hope you will look into the mater. And I am sure that you will understand my situation and get them agreed with my point.

Thanking you,
Yours faithfully

BENJAMIN BESRA
