LST 1 mio by West Hampshire Bank Plc
and they asked me to open an account
by paying LST350.- in order to receive
each month LST 100'000 and this initial deposit would be added to my winning?
e-mail signed by Jones David Stephen

Is all that false?
Please tell me?
Please give us full explanation and comments about this lottery system, of course if this is all false, lies, I fully disagree with
these stupid lies and my attitude towards
complaint is to agree.
I received an e-mail saying that i have won 1,000,000,00 pounds, is it true or false?
Please advice me.
I was advised also that I won 1 mio UK pound by West Hampshire Bank Plc,my personal data sent to them. Is it all false? What they are looking for then?!!
very bad people
YES folks all of this stuff is fake. Unless you know ; you have played the lotto in the UK. Also, if you had won it, dont you think they would address you by name. Lotto games online require an account and has you personal information. If you look at the header most of these say to an unknown recipient.
DO NOT SEND THESE FOLKS YOUR INFORMATION AT ALL. The purpose of these scams is for identity theft; it doesn't matter if you are in America; know that many companies collaborate now; when it comes to your credit reports. Believe me; and you can check it out for yourselves; that there are Transunion and equifax etc. in other countries too and they do and can link them selves now to check your debts and report yours or not your debts all over the world now.
Below is another example of a fake email:
