Mode of payment

The charges are a little bit high because of the hardcover insurance policy we have undertaken in case of loss, amage or theft of your highly sensitive document and funds. we assume all responsibilities in case of any eventualities and we don't deliver on cash on delivery (c. o. d) because we don't accept cash.

Note:that your delivery charges cannot be deducted from your winning prize due to article 1186 section 45 subsection 2.3 of the united kingdom constitution as relates to financial and courier matters, which are duly codified in the united kingdom law. hence you are to note that the delivery charges must be provided by you before your prize is delivered to you.

You are to make the payment for any of the option you have chosen through western union money transfer/money gram so as to enable us speedy up the process of delivery after indicating to us the option you prefer. you are to locate the nearest western union agent or money gram to you and make the payment in favor of our accounts officer mr. adam smith with the details below:

    I received a check in the mail. It stated that we had won a lottery for 250,000.00. All we had to do, of course, was with the check we'd received, which was for $4,850.00, was to go to the bank and deposit it, cash it,..blah blah blah. We needed to send them a check for $2500.00, which would take care of the income taxes on it. Stupidly, I took it to the bank, deposited $2000.00 in checking, $2000.00 in savings, and got cash back of $850.00. My fault that I didn't read the letter that came with it, but my husband said to be looking for a check in the mail and deposit it as said. Well, next thing I know, the bank sends a notice that they'd taken the $4850.00 out of our checking acct., as the check was ALTERED/FICTITIOUS. This was "drawn" off Wells Fargo Bank. NA Minnesota South 206 East Hickory St. Mankato, MN 56001. The check's dated 10/17/2007. What they expect you to do is send the $2500.00 back to them, they close out the so called legal acct. before the check can clear, and they have your $2500.00!! These checks look good, as they have a watermark on the back, and other things to fool you. Anyway, I've taken the copy of the check to Sheriff's office, where they've promised to get FBI involved! We'll see. Celia Adams
