U K National Lottery / TNT Couriers Service / scam lottery

United States Review updated:
4.3
I received several emails from multiple people that all stated the same thing. Namely that I had won the U.K. National Lottery. I did some research and found that other people had been taken by these scammers and had sent checks to the so-called courier company but then never saw anything back. Several of the e-mail addresses that where used have been deleted and are no longer in service.

These people are out there to steal your money and there seems o be no way to trace them.

Thanks God I've found this web, because I also accepted few days ago the scam from Free Lotto UK and asked me to send money for parcel delivery + insurance cost via TNT courier service in Manchester UK.
Mr. Alex Powell (Dispatch officer of TNT ) called me many times after I asked him to answer about what is my right and how do I get my right if I don't receive (late delivery) or cointaining of parcel is not same, to ensure me that I am not on cheating by them.
I hope there has somebody to report this Gang.

I got exactly the same e-mail asking for all my details so I smelt a rat and I replied with the following:

Full Name: Miss Amanda Lykes
Address: The ### Inn
TILLET
Herts
TO55 ER

Occupation: Cleaner
Telephone: +44 207 230 1212

(If you read the address out loud, you'll get it, if you've not already!...) and the telephone number I gave was of the Metropolitan Police Fraud Reporting Office.

Haha, so when they use "my details" to make any fraudulent loans applications etc, they'll just look stupid, and if they try to call to get me to pay for my parcel, they'll be direct through to the P0lice Fraud line!

(I've since received the e-mail saying to contact TNT dispatch etc.)
