    Amol,
    you have been scam'd. Phone: 002348050768436 is in NIGERIA. I know - i have friends in that country.
    I hope you reasearch on the net before you get caught in this way again.

    Remember :
    1.You can not win money from a lottery unless you buy a ticket.
    2.Most lotteries can only be won by residents of that country.
    3.Nokia, BMW and other companies do not notify of winnings via e-mail.
    4.Never supply you personal information to any one via internet (this includes banking details, home and work phone and addres, full names, identity information, date of birth)
    5.When you need to pay the Courier - DO NOT - IT IS A SCAM!!
    6.Read the e-mail, think about it and do research before you act. The winnings can not be from UK but the mail address is in HK. The contact person is James Forbes but he has an French accent of even Chinese. Most scammers can not spell at all.

    There are many site on the net where you can find out if the promise of money is legite or not.
    FRAUD WATCHERS (IAP) on the net is just one and you will see all the scams listed.

    It is a shame with the incredible technology today, people like the scammers can not be found and put in prison for life. Why is it not possible for YAHOO to stop these con-artists. They steal from innocents without remorse (and they get away with it).

    WOULDN'T IT BE NICE IF A REPLY TO THE SCAM-MAIL COULD BE "DANGEROUS" TO THE SCAMMERS COMPUTER?
    We could but dream ...
