Dear Sirs,

Some one have just sent me the e-mail bellow. I think this is a money scam. I don´t recall to participate in any game, and having won such an amount.

The agent Mike Evans have just reach me by phone, and swears that this is not a scam. How can I be sure? They are asking for the 120€, but I have told him that if the check is not good, i will charge shell company on the bank fees, and also i´ll put the company in Court. Please don´t joke with people.

I´d like to have a promt answer, about it.

We have been waiting for you to contact us for your Confirmable Bank Draft of
$150, 000.00 United States Dollars Won at the Shell Promo Dec. 2007 but we did
not heard from you for claims. Then we went and deposited the Cheque with
Fastway Courier Company, West Africa.

What you have to do now is to contact the Fastway Courier Company as soon as
possible to know when they will deliver your package to you because of the
expiring date. For your information, We have paid for the delivering Charge,
Insurance premium and Clearance Certificate Fee of the Cheque showing
that it is
Legitimate and not meant to sponsor Terrorist attack in your Country or Drugs.

The only money you will send to the Fastway Courier Company to deliver your
Draft direct to your postal Address in your country is ($120.00 US) Dollars
only being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far. Again, don't be
deceived by anybody to pay any other money except $120.00US Dollars.

Our company would have paid that but they said no because they don't know when
you will contact them and in case of demurrage.You have to contact the Fastway
Courier Company now for the delivery of your Draft with this information below
and reconfirm your Delivery address;

Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal address() and Direct
telephone number to them again to avoid any mistake on the Delivery and ask
them to give you the tracking number to enable you track your package over
there and know when it will get to your address.

Let me repeat again, try to contact them as soon as you receive this mail to
avoid any further delay and remember to pay them their Security Keeping fee of
$120.00 US Dollars for their immediate Dispatch/shipment. You should also let
me know through email as soon as you receive your Draft.
