The MSN / Yahoo Lottery Incorporation / fake lottery

1 India Review updated:

Dear Sir,
I received an Email stating that I won £860,000.00 (Eight Hundred and Sixty thousand,Great Britain Pounds Sterling)for the month of October 2007, they need my contact no and address for the despatch of the said amount (i.e. prize money), when contacted they says that I need to bare some amount as courier expenses £685 pounds (56,072 Indian Rupee).
When they are giving me so much of amount with out participating in any lottery games why can't they deduct this small some of amount, it seems to cheat some one, I think it will be useful to some one who reads this.

    Hi, I received a mail stating that i won a prize money of Six hundred and fifty thousand, Great Britain Pound Sterlings(£650,000.00) from The Msn/Yahoo Lottery Incorporation for the month of jan 2008. At first I thought its true and later I came to know that its just a fake mail. They will ask for half of the prize money as courier agency fee. Dont believe in such false things which is not true. If u check for the lottry company, u will come to know that it is just a SCAM. So frnds, dont give your any cash or bank details.

    I have already been scammed once and I won't let it happen again. I received one on May 9, 2008 and am checking out everything on it. I check the address, the names and anything else I think is important. I suggest that everyone else do the same.
