Uk National Lottery Headquarters / Fraud and cheating!

1 United Kingdom Review updated:

Got an e-mail from the Awards Dept. with e-mail address uknl2007@tampabay.rr.com informing me I had won a random online promotion program lottery ticket. It was for 956,420 pounds. They want my name, sex, age, occupation,tel,fax,country,e-mail,and winning number. I sent an e-mail asking where they were sending the money, cause they said it was to be credited to KTU/[protected]/03. What is that?

They wrote back and said they would send a check by International Courier Systems and I would have to pay the mailing charges. They gave me four so called phone numbers, but they are missing something to call London. Mr. Harrison Blair is the client services Manager there, with a e-mail of
infolcscouriers112@yahoo.co.uk. And the claims agent is Mr. Michael Martins at UK National Lottery Headquarters. Email: claimsdeptuklotto112@yahoo.co.uk

I have sent him my first name and my e-mail address, but that is all. Am I in jepordy with my online info?

What can we do to verify or put these guys out of business?

    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?

    Agree with Marla Johnson, I too have received this type of email, surely there must be somewhere people like us can call to confirm something of this nature, is there an organization we can call to verify if we indeed have been winners of maybe an online draw e.t.c, as some of us do visit an awful lot of websites.

    Please advise smb!

    I received the same email saying I had won a lottery. I did not fill out all the info they needed, but received a response back to claim the prize of over a million dollars. They of course want @ least a $1,000-$3,000 to claim the prize plus a scanned copy of my driver's license. If this was legit, a driver's license could be shown @ an US Post Office to pick-up the package. They had some lame excuse for not being able to deduct mailing fees from the prize money. I think this is a total scam and these people need to be stopped. It's a perfect way for these con-artists to get your money and identity information. Also a Harrison Blair with the International Courier Service was listed as the contact. What a totally British name! They must think we are stupid or something.

    Does a national uk lottery even exist? Why does every search engine for that turn up SCAMS? Where is the uk government website? Are we fools for not finding out more information before double clicking DELETE!!?? What if you are homeless, helpless and hopeless, Can you at least dream it's a reality? Why are we even having this conversation? Anybody who wants money up front should be locked up for even asking!!!

    Yeah, i too received an email from the so-called UK lottery... from what it looks like, i highly doubt that this many people would have actually won the lottery, so i think its a total scam... but than again, if it turns out to be real, ill be kicking myself in the head for a long time.

    I also received an email telling me I have won the U.K. National lottery. I have never, to my knowledge, bought a lottery ticket from U.K. and even though the email seems legitimate, this really sounds bogus. The email I received asked me to email someone in Liverpool, England to file my claim. It states that I am to give them my reference/batch #, full name, address, age, sex, occupation, and phone/fax number. I am going to find out more and let y'all know. There are so many internet scams out there it is sad.

That if a reverse payment is made, and something goes wrong, that we/you cannot sue the courier company or insurance company to recover the full value of the fund as stipulated in the cheque since payment for insurance cover was not made at point of mailing.With the above reason, reverse payment is ruled out. which makes it absolutely necessary to produce the courier fee before courier can despatch delivery.

This means that the above charges cannot be deducted from the prize and hence must be provided by you before your prize is transferred to you. This is in accordance with section 13(1)(n) of the international gambling act as adopted in 1993 and amended on 3RD july 1996 by the constitutional assembly.This is to protect receipients and to avoid misappropriation of funds congratulations once again.
