    I read the whole remarks of the people and the responses given from the company. I am not satisfy from these remarks. Every body is asking to confirm that is it fake or true but there is no proper answer for this. I tried to call on the given no of Barrister David Singer but system does'nt recognize that no. I send an email to his email address. that email bounced and the written text lost from the email. My received email (Lotery Winning) for which I was going to claim is also delted from my account automatically. I thing its fake or some thing wrong.

    Hope it will be resolve soon becuase the big name of companies are involved.

    Thanks
