Ecowas Donations 2007 / Requirement of advance shipping charges in thousands of dollar!

1 India Review updated:

I have received mail from ECOWAS DONATIONS 2007. This is not first time, but every time at last they instructed me to send thousands of dollars in the name of shipment, courier, VAT, Insurance etc. etc. When I render that you have chosen me for award/grant therefore your legal as well as morel responsibility to send the prize/donation amount up to its winner on your own expenses and I will not send any money in advance, they send me a new mail. Their recent mail read as under:

    Indeed I have received this kind of mail five times last year.
    Funny enough it was the same mail but signed with different people. Belive me this is cheating and treachery.
    Never bother to keep communicating with them
