Lottery Scams / Cheating & Fraud

1 India Review updated:

Spam Mails reg. Lottery/Kin/IMF/Online Money Transer/ATM card sent thru courier etc., these are fraud mails once they fall into the circle they are brain washed to remit money in account they prefer i.e.,

a) Once you start corresponding you will be receving a mail from the Co. i.e., Certificate of winning amount & give details about the diplomat who is visiting the country to handover the documents & they also tell that not to disclose to anybody due to security reasons as the amount that you won is huge
b) The Diplomat Arrive in the Country & give a local call stating that he is in the Airport want to get the consignment clear from the Airport for which he will ask to remit amount in the account they provide
c) Then he send false custom clearance certificate & then say that since the the lottery amount is in GBP or $ you have to pay Cost Conversion charges again he provide the Account No. to remit for the same
d) After remiting they again give false conversion certificate & say that since you are not the citizen of their country you have get Non Residential Certificate & he again demand money for it & give the account No. to remit
e) Then you will receive a letter from the Bank Outside (Nationwide Bank) & from Local (Reserve Bank of India) stating that your winning amount has arrived in Reserve Bank of India they also give us false call & inform you & they say that now you have to pay tax for the huge winning amount that as per the guidelines they are not suppose to deduct the same from the winning amount & they again provide the account No. to reming the tax amount
f) Then afterwards you will be following with them they say that the Governor of RBI is demanding bribe to move the file & demand for the same & this will be last amount & again provide the account No. the show goes on till you are remitting the amount once you stop they say if you don't remit the amount they demanded up till what has been given will go in vain the receipts all provided are of fake If you go & enquire those are all false ultimately being a victim'

These culprits are having their own Network all over the world & They say that they are having Agents their job is that to fool the innocents & the public the give 30% to all Police & the Agents as such they can't be caught hold off. This is true as such don't entertain such messages kindly delete the same.

MR CLAUD ERICSSON

As informed by you I forwarded this message to the diplomat’s/processing officer in charge of my funds transfer who is in India, I was trying to contact to contact you over phone but in vain as such, I am seeking consent from your end. The Diplomat has adviced me to arrange 345000 Indian Rupees equivalant to ( 4, 450 GBP ) as the minister of finance is demanding for a non-residential tax clearance of ( 4, 450 GBP ). The reason is because I am not a citizen of The United Kingdom, as such this has to be filed in my file with the Reserve bank before your funds transfer can continue,

The BMW as well as the Dimplomant has advised not to disclose with anybody about the winning lottery till the proceess are complete since I have invested more than 119500 INR for completeing the formalities thru Reserve Bank of India & Custom Authorities in India & now I have to again remit 345000 equivalent to (4, 450 GBP) The money of mine will not be lost & this is final dealing that has to be completed from my end for you to transfer the winning amount in my account.
I was trying to contact to contact you over phone but in vain as such, I am seeking consent for the confirmation from your end. Once I get the confirmation, I will proceed to remit the amount for 345000 INR equivalent to (4, 450 GBP) as I cannot arrange any further money for getting my winning amount transferred in my account.

Please acknowledge the receipt & give me the confirmation for taking the decision accordingly & hope all the things are going on legally.
