Global City Finance Bank / Unauthorized money transfer

1 Italy Review updated:

I was contacted on my e-mail address saying that I had won a lottery, after I tried getting my money transfer I was asked for the COT code which I didn't have, so I answered asking for it. I was contacted by a person saying that I had to pay 750 pounds then I would be given the code and be able to transfer the money into my account. Is this a fraud? Thank you

    i have also got the same email too... in the email it said that i won the lottery at the "national lottery" and told me to give info to get the money transfered... after all the info is given... it is said that i need to click on the link to transfer the money... first of all... that "website" that is given to me is really really ###... i dont think a bank will make a website like that... and second... the hosting of that website is by a free online hosting... a bank wont use a free online hosting service... since a bank will have alot of info that is needed to be put online... and wont use this kind of service since its unstable and not alot of people can access the info at once... so a bank that want to do bussiness... wont do that... and if you havent noticed... the email address they use are all or something like that... if its a bank that have its own wepage and its own server... they should have their own email adress... so this person that is trying to make money... is doing a really really cheap job about it... he should of atlest throw out some moeny to make a real webpage at first... and not have this cheap of a website... but then i do have to give this person some credit... since he would call long distance to me to tell me to check my email... HAHAHHAHA... i am 85% sure that this is a scam...
