United Arab Emirates Review updated:

Hai Sir,

Iam an Engineer working in United Arab Emirates. I got a mail
from "THE EAST MIDLANDS HERITAGE LOTTERY FUND PROMO". The below mentioned
message is the first mail from them.

"This is to inform you that, Your Email Address has won you the sum
of £855,000 Pounds Sterling from THE EAST MIDLANDS HERITAGE LOTTERY
FUND PROMO on our 2007 End-of-Year Charity Bonanza Promotions.

CONTACT: Mr. Ed Mayer (Promo Agent) To Claim Prize.
Phone #: +[protected], OR [protected],OR [protected]
Email: edmayer@hserviceptn.org

Regards;
Sheela Henshaw"

I had later replied to this mail asking for further information. They sent
me mail saying "HOW TO CLAIM THE HERITAGE FUNDS". They even informed me that
the fund is transferred to a finance institution.This mail is from a
person named Ed Mayer. His contact number is as mentioned below:

"Mr. Ed Mayer
Midlands Security Trust Group
St Nicholas Court,
Castle Gate,
Nottingham, NG1 7AR
Tel: +[protected]

[protected]."

They had given me a mail id of that finance institution. The below listed is
the following details of finance institution.

"DAN WALKER (SIR),
CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER,
E-Banking Care Unit
Helpful Numbers:
+[protected]
+[protected]
+[protected]
+[protected]
Email: e-banking@ladbrokesandbaker.co.uk
Website: www.ladbrokesandbaker.com"

From ladbrokes & baker, i got a mail asking to open an account with them so
as to transfer the money. They asked me to send $350 as the account activation
fee. As per their requirements, i had sent the money through western union to "LAURA VROOBELL".
after they received the money they
even called me & asked to check the mail for the account details. When
i checked them, i saw the whole amount of $850,000 where debited to my account.
When i was trying to transfer the amount to my account, they asked me to pay a
$2000 so as to receive the commission of transfer code (C.O.T. code).
i mailed the ladbrokes & baker asking them why they havent informed all the
procedures before starting the process. after that their is no mail from them.
from this i came to know that they where cheating me. i want u to take proper
action for these type of actions.

I knew straight away it was a scam as many people had told me about it, but I wanted to see what the process was. They should learn if they are going to use a site about their institution they should at least change the web site for current interest rates. The site where interest rates were promulgated had not been updated for years. I never went past the second email

I, too, received a similar email. I have applied for the account, however have not yet funded it. I am glad that I saw this site before doing so. I have emailed "Ladbrokes&Baker" to query why it is not permitted to fund the account and take fees from the monies set aside for me. I should have known it was too good to be true. I am thinking about teaching them the lesson, but need some help from others. Comment back if anyone wants to help.

I found this mail is it spam?
Dear partner,
I thank you so much for your urgent responds to my business proposal sent to you, it is my pleasure to know you and also want you to know that it is the doing of Almighty Allah who has a purpose for everything on earth, I contacted you after making some relent search for a reputable partner and found out that you can be trusted. I also prayed and fasted for Allah directive and was fully convinced that you are the right person that will assist me in this business.

I am a Singaporean but lived all my life in Indonesia after the death of my father who died 20 years ago, as my mother is an Indonesian. I worked for PT.Pertamina (Persero) Indonesia before I retired and joined real estate business for many years until this moment following my doctor's advice for me to avoid any form of stress due to my failing health.

I have the sum of (US$12.5 Million) cash which I secured from the sales and distribution of crude oil and petroleum products worldwide.I decide to solicit your assistance to invest the fund for our personal use; the fund has been deposited with a reputable finance firm here in Indonesia (GLOBAL SECURITY FINANCE FIRM). The fund was scheduled to be transferrer with the help of the finance firm.

I want to use a God fearing person irrespective of his/her religion as I need someone who I can entrust with this fund for our own benefit.

In your next mail showing your full interest I shall forward to you the specimen of the application that you will forward to the GLOBAL SECURITY FINANCE FIRM JAKARTA INDONESIA for the release of the fund to you before I will start making arrangement to fly down to your country.

I have to compensate you with 20% out of the total fund and we shall both share the total annual profit with me at %60 and you at %20 for you, 15% will be use for any expenses at the cost of completing this project and the 5% for a charity as my late father always told me to donate to charity and the less privilege.
This transaction is 100% risk free as all relevant details of the fund will be furnished to you on receipt of your nest reply and readiness to work me with one mind.

Do not hesitate to contact me as this project needs urgent attention and must be confidential. The attached file is my international passport for your confidence.. In your next email to me do remember to provide your international passport, picture or drivers license for me to know whom am dealing with.
