uk lottery board / lottery win

1 United Kingdom Review updated:

i recieved an email saying i had won £517k through the uk lottery board and in order to get my winnings i was to email 'TNT' courier services as i had to pay for the delivery of the 'package' the details are as follows

1) i was emailed from brc.ferguson@gmail.com (claims agent) informing me of my 'win' and was to contact TNT

2)TNT - i was to contact a mr gary redknapp at tntukdelivery@hotmail.com or ring [protected]/[protected] to arrange payment type
The address of the TNT depot was given as:
176 Camford Way
Sundon Park
Luton
Bedfordshire. LU3 3AN, UK

3) also i asked that when payment was to be made it is to be done through a western union agent by the name of Patricia Scholes at the same address as TNT.

I realise you have many complaints but they all seem to be with overseas contact details and thought you may be interested in this one as it is within the UK and maybe it could be investigated by the police.

thanks
c.batham

    I too have received repeated notices of winning the email U.K. Lottery from such groups at Camelot Group, British Tobacco OnLine Promo, etc. They're driving me nuts. How do you know if they're for real? PUZZLED?

    I decided to google the address to check out whether it was real or not, which is when I came across this complaint forum. I think that it is unacceptable that this person is still getting away with this scam considering that the first complaint was from August. I have been hounded with emails from this so called lottery representive and through curiosity I responded. Fortunately I haven't fallen for the scam unlike other people. However there are still emails going around. What is going to be done to make sure that this person gets reprimanded?
