    i've sent the filled up form. now i se, i have to buy my "winning amount". It's silly. Courier brings me a bag of money, i'm receiving all, i will pay all he needs, that is agreed! Other way, UK bank can depositt all lottery winnings for a name of a Winner for free! My Lithuanias bank will fee for a tranfear ofmoney, but ut's my business! And i decleear my incomes- its my busines to pay taxes!
    Last year i've "won" NL wodafones 1000 000 eu, the same way- must buy ottorney for 800 5u...
    do't trust, the prisson dreames for them

    Aparantly i have won seven hundred and fifty three thousand, four hundred, and thirty seven pound stirling.
    However, the person who sent me the mail is Mr Ben Bruce (i doubt he really exists).
