Hi Tim,

I received the same email as you mentioned, although my reply was different, the email addresses and numbers are the same. Is this a scam????

As with regards to the courier company mentioned in the above email, the company itself and its location is rather legitimate. But as for the e-lottery email, that is suspect. And when I contacted the courier company that is when they requested the 300GBP for the delivery...I am curious as to how this courier company is linked to the scam. Please advise further if you have any other information.

Kind regards,

Ty
