National Lottery Online Program / Fake winning notifications
I received email notifying me of a free lotto winning of GBP 1 Million. They asked for my personal information, identification number (passport) and my bank details.
I was informed that Mr Kevin Aronin will be the fiduciary agent to handle my case.
Details of Mr. Kevin Aronin that I received are as follows:
Payment Release Order Dept.
National Lottery Online Program
Mr Kevin Aronin
Lottery Claims Release Department.
Direct : +[protected]
British ID No: 5318008
Date of Birth: 08-06-1954
After providing the information, I was asked to do the following:
to make the payment of £475 GB Pounds through Western Union Money Transfer to our Account Manger by his information below:
Name of Receiver: David Cole
Address: 33-37 Hogarth Road
Zip Code: SW5 0QQ
Your winnings will be processed and transferred to your designated bank account within the next 24hrs after your payment of £475 have been received. Immediately you are done making the payment kindly get back to me with the Western Union Information such as sender's full name, address, MTCN and also send a scan copy of the receipt through e-mail attachment so your payment will be able to be receive by the receiver and quickly conclude the processing and transferring of your winning sum.
I suspect that this is some kind of a fraud / scam. I am also not comfortable transferring money through Western Union Money Transfer
Can you please advise me of steps I should take in this regard.
