Dear Farman Ullah i received the same email every thing the same except the claim amount .This is a Nigerian scam.

I received a similar e-mails of huge amounts, that i should be a billionaire by now, having multiple e-mail accounts. Firstly, How can someone be so stupid to actually believe that you can receive 500 000.00 dollars from a selected e-mail and then be asked to pay the tax to release the money. THIS IS A SCAM!! Money is never handed out to anybody if you haven't done anything. To win money you have to at least purchase a ticket, not by a third party or a computer selecting your e-mail. ONCE AGAIN THIS IS A SCAM!!

It is a scam. Unfortunately some people want to believe it and get sucked in. I as well received this email. Exactly the same. I am in Canada. I seem to of gotten a flurry of "scam emails" over the course of 2 weeks. Also a bunch saying " Do you need a loan" lol. Then they ask for small transfer fee of Only $155 usd. So many people again may fall for this.

Don't listen to theis "cyber officer" he is one of the scammers. He wants all your personal information so he can scam you and steal your money or identity or both. There is no "Cyber Bureau" a quick bit of research will show that. If you want to contact the authorities in the UK regarding these scam lotteries, do not contact these fake people - contact the actual police. Contact Metropolitan Police and tell them what is going on and they have a task force that deals with this kind of crime.

My Dear Friend,
All the mails you receive, even the British Tax clearance certificate is all fake prepared to take away your money.Now they will tell you that in order to get the tax clearance certificate, you have to pay to the British Tax Revenues Authority an amount of only 550 British Pound, which is actually also fake. You will be thinking of the 500, 000.00 and will make the payment of 500 or 1000 which is very small when compared to what you are assuming to get. That is all what they want. To snatch away few bucks of yours by filling you with a hope of getting money that you have never dreamed off. Why would FIFA offer these all amount of money for nothing? Do you think that you can get something out of nothing. Do not be a fool. And stop asking them to give you your money which was no there and of course not belong to you.

This is my third time to received such notification from FIFA MICROSOFT CORPORATION informing me that my email address had just won millions of dollars and even millions of British Pounds in a lottery. The last one was received yesterday, notifying me that my email add was a winner for the 2018 Lottery.. But I'm very hesitant to give them my informations because I knew they were just identity theives. Can the proper authorities make these fraudulent deeds stop?
