GOOD DAY TO YOU MR. SADIQ. WE HAVE ORDERED A STOP IN THE TRANSFER OF YOUR WINNINGS FROM THE UK NATIONAL LOTTERY DUE TO FAILURE OF TAX PAYMENTS ON SUCH A HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY.
THE SAID ACCOUNT WILL REMAIN INACTIVE UNTIL YOU MAKE THE NECESSARY TAX PAYMENT FOR YOUR WINNINGS. WE WOULD HAVE CONTACTED YOU EARLIER ON BUT NEITHER YOUR PHONE NUMBER NOR EMAIL ADDRESS WAS WITH US SO WE DECIDED TO PASS THE MESSAGE THROUGH MR. GLEN MICHAEL THE CLAIMS AGENT OF THE UK NATIONAL LOTTERY TO YOU.
YOUR ACCOUNT MIGHT BE FROZEN BY NEXT WEEK IF WE DON'T HEAR FROM YOU SOON REGARDING HOW YOU WILL START MAKING THIS TAX PAYMENT AS WE HAVE JUST INFORMED CITY BANK OF LONDON ABOUT THE CONSEQUENCES. THEY WILL HAVE TO FACE THE LAW FOR ATTEMPTING TO TRANSFER YOUR WINNINGS TO YOU WITHOUT YOUR PAYMENT OF TAX. THIS IS A NEW BILL PASSED INTO LAW BY OUR GOVERNMENT THAT TAXES WOULD NOW BE PAID FOR ANY LOTTERY WINNINGS THUS AS SOON AS YOU PAY YOUR TAX, WE WILL ISSUE YOU A TAX RECEIPT AND YOUR TAX CODE SHALL BE RELEASED TO THE BANK. YOUR TAX OUGHT TO BE 5% OF YOUR WINNINGS BUT BEING A NON UK RESIDENT, THE UK NATIONAL LOTTERY HAS AGREED TO PAY 2.5% ON YOUR BEHALF THEREBY REDUCING YOUR TAX LIABILITY TO 2.5% OF YOUR WINNINGS WHICH AMOUNTS TO 18, 836 POUND STERLING.
YOU JUST HAVE TO PAY YOUR TAX MR. SADIQ BEFORE YOU CAN CONTINUE ANY TRANSFER BECAUSE ANY ATTEMPT TO DO THAT, WE WON'T HAVE ANY OTHER CHOICE THAN TO INSTRUCT THE NECESSARY AUTHORITY IN THE GOVERNMENT TO FREEZE YOUR ACCOUNT WITH CITY BANK OF LONDON AND FILE A LAW SUIT AGAINST YOU AND THE BANK. WE WOULD NOT MIND TO INFORM YOUR GOVERNMENT AS WELL THUS THE CHOICE IS YOURS.
NOTE THAT AS SOON AS YOU GET BACK TO US, YOU SHALL BE INFORMED ON HOW TO MAKE THIS PAYMENT AS THE LOTTERY BOARD HAS PLEADED ON YOUR BEHALF THAT YOU MAKE THE PAYMENT LITTLE BY LITTLE.
DO PAY YOUR TAX OR YOUR TAX CODE WILL NOT BE GIVEN TO YOU AS WE DO NOT HAVE ANY RIGHT TO DEDUCT TAX FROM YOUR WINNINGS BECAUSE IT IS A CRIME HERE IN THE UK TO TAMPER WITH WINNERS FUNDS THUS I ADVISE YOU FOLLOW MY INSTRUCTION.
THE CHOICE IS YOURS AS I AWAIT YOUR REPLY.

Attn: Taufiq Mahmood Sadiq,
Good day to you. In regards to your last email to us, I am so sorry for this late correspondence with you which was as result of a sudden board meeting I had to attend. However, your transfer was discussed at the meeting and I write to inform you that you are expected to pay a commission on transfer charges which would enable you obtain the C.O.T code. Normally when you are transferring money from one account to another, there is usually a commission that is meant to be paid. According to the FSA policy in the UK, winners of the UK National Lottery are charged a flat rate of 1% of their winnings as C.O.T.
This cannot be deducted from from your winnings as it is actually meant to be paid by you so that our computer network can auto-generate the code as soon as the payment slip for the C.O.T charges is scanned into our network. Ordinarily, according to standard banking procedures, commission on transfer charges are usually deducted from amount been transferred but it was in our agreement with UK National Lottery that funds of winners are not tampered with until it is finally transferred into winners local bank account thus the need for you to make this payment.
I just want to let you know that the C.O.T charges which is 1% of your winnings that is (1% of 753, 437 Pounds Sterling) amounts to 7, 534 Pound Sterling but when we informed the Lottery Board today about your inability to finalize your transfer due to the commission on transfer, they opted to pay three quarter of that amount thereby reducing your commission on transfer charges to just 1, 883 Pound Sterling.
However, I have promised the Lottery Board that once you pay the commission on transfer charges, your transfer would be finalized. My branch manager has informed me that payments of all C.O.T charges should be made through western union money transfer to our account officer Fiona Giggs.
Below is how the transfer is to be made.
Name of Receiver: Fiona Giggs
Address of First : 29-30 High Holborn, Holborn, London, WC1V 6AZ, United Kingdom.
Amount to be sent: 1, 883 Pound Sterling
This update has been made known to the Lottery Board as well thus we apologize for any inconveniency this might cause you but it is not my making as I am only following laid down policies by the management thus you are advised to make this payment as soon as possible in order for us to conclude this transaction immediately.
Please note that your account with us is a temporary e-savings account solely set for the immediate transfer of your winnings thus you are advised to act swiftly. You are also advised to scan and send the transfer slips to us immediately via email as soon as the transfers are made. This is to enable our foreign transfer department keep proper records. The Lottery Board shall expanciate better on this to you as it is their instructions we are acting on. I shall give you a call later in the day to know the update of things. You have my office number thus you could give me a call as well to update us.
We await your swift response to this mail.
I remain yours truly,
Mark Phil (Foreign Transfer Manager)
