Sub: Regarding Fund Transfer

My name is T. David Thomas. I am writing this letter to confirm the
following and want to know whether it is true or fake.
I have received a mail on10/08/2010 from Catholic Charities
Organization informing that I was selected as one of the Award Winner
to receive the Award sum of 1, 500, 000.00 EUR and asked to claim the
funds through a courier company “British Airways World Cargo”. With
that I have proceeded as per the instructions of their representative
and paid Rs.98, 000/- to get 1) Endorsement Stamp of the Ministry Of Finance 2)Approval Stamp from the Governor of (R.B.I) 3)Tax and Insurance charges & non-residential tax clearance certificate in addition to the courier charges.

Further, I received message from their representative informing that
the fund has been deposited in an on line account opened in my name
with RBI. My account number given as [protected] with an account pin.
This information is given by RBI Manager named as S.K (only)
International Fund Transfer Department, Reserve Bank of India. With
this available data received I could not transfer the fund to my local
account due to the lack of Anti Terrorist Certificate Code (ATC) and
the matter has been informed. Now the RBI manager is asking to remit
Rs.74, 000/- for the ATC code for getting the fund transferred.

I am totally confused and want to make sure whether these proceedings
are true and whether the fund has been deposited with RBI in my name
in the given account number. Kindly advice me whether to proceed in
sending the amount for getting the ATC code and also please confirm
that any other formalities will continue further.

Kindly give me the required information at the earliest to avoid any
confusion as mentioned in the latest mail I received.

Thanking you,

    How are you doing today?My names are Mrs Linda Briggs i want to inform
    you that i also happen to be a lucky recipent of this same award last
    year, first i was having some scepticisms over the whole issue but i was
    told to send an email along side my datas to their Claims agent who is
    Mr James Phillip( in turn guided me on
    how i collected the won amount, the only thing i paid for was the
    transfer charges then my winnings was transfererd to my Bank account directly from the United Kingdom.

    So I would advice you write to the Claims Agent to inform you on how
    you are going to collect your won amount.


    Mrs Linda Briggs.
