    My office is in receipt of your email. This is to inform you that we are in possession of your winning check of £500,000.00 (Five Hundred Thousand pound Sterling) which was sent to us from the UNITED KINGDOM National Lottery and was deposited in a suspense account in our bank. A hard cover insurance policy has been placed on your winnings, (which implies that your winnings cannot be tampered with until it is in your custody). The mode of the payout of your winnings stipulated by the United Kingdom National Lottery is online wire transfer. The reason is that your check was deposited in a suspense account for security reason, besides winners outside UK always find it difficult to cash the check easily hence our bank is not everywhere in the world. Consequently, you will be required to open an online account on your behalf, a pin/account number will be sent to you, to enable you log into your account and check your statement of account online. It will also interest you to know that the initial opening deposit will also reflect in your newly opened account. Which means that the new balance in your account will become a summation of your winning prize and the opening deposit. You are at liberty to transfer the whole money from your account to your local account if you wish to discontinue banking with us. You are expected to choose from any of the online account opening stated below that is most convenient for you.
