    I have received the same info. I was sent an email stating I won, and I responded with an email that said simply "Explain". I mean, c'mon, Mercedes sending me millions of dollars? I was sent an email this morning again stating I "won" and to contact them for details. My File Reference Number is exactly the same as yours!

    I googled the email to see if anyone else had posted about them. Your posting is the only thing that came up. I certainly hope no one falls for this.

    Esteemed Beneficiary,

    Acknowledgment Information Required

    Top of the day to you over there. This is to inform you that we are a Banking Organization and as so have rules and regulations to follow, so due to very strict policies laid down by the Benz Promotional Affairs Commission, we are unable to process the transfer of your prize by deducting from your prize money.

    It is very important that we receive the fee prior to your delivery/transfer, as part of the fee will be used to cover the necessary delivery/transfer charges. Also included in the fee is the cost to cover insurance of documents that will be sent to you via courier Service. These policies have been put in place to check previously experienced mishandling and/or misappropriation of winners funds, we are obligated to act in line with these policies.

    Considering that we cannot process your prize money without payment of the required charges, I advise that you arrange for the funds to be transferred as earlier instructed. If you can’t come up with this amount, or do not have the intention to pay this amount, your claims will be cancelled, and your funds returned back to Mercedes Benz Promotion Board as unclaimed.

    Having known our conditions, if you wish to further your claims, kindly write back to us. Once I receive this, I shall send you complete details of payment for the required fee.

    I await your prompt response. Your urgent reply will be most welcome.

    We look forward to serving you better.


    Best Regards,


    Mr. Alrick Kelvin
