TNT Courier Services / scam mail!

1 AR, United Kingdom Review updated:

I have received emails telling me I have won £500.000, from lotto sweepstakes.the courier service want between £600-£800 to deliver. All this is a con. They have at least 7 different people named as courier managers and none of them exist. Do not bother reading their emails they are scamming all of us.I contacted TNT, the real one's and they are aware of this scam.

The police should be made aware of what they are doing and lock them up for years. People are pinning their hopes on the prizes but they don't exist. It is always the same amount won and always different addresses of where the TNT office is. These people should burn in hell.

    I received the same email, but this time I had won £2.5 million so of course I was interested. Upon receiving the email of my courier costs and options, I replied that I would be willing to stop my their office and they could deduct the courier costs from my winnings. Funny, they didn't reply.

    Who can we contact to get these thugs arrested? Does someone have any idea?
