Dear Sunil Jena ,

Stop of Cheque Delivery with Identification Number :No:CPEL/OWN/9877 to , Country: India

Inland Revenue and the British Tax Investigation Service are Authorized and Regulated by the Financial Services Authority. The Taxation and Revenue Department assesses certain type’s taxes. A tax is levied on lotteries, raffles, etc. almost everywhere, normally by the payment authority on behalf of the Government. In some cases, we receive a share of lottery taxes levied by the Government. However, in most cases, the tax takes the form of a permit fee. It is only classified as a tax in a few Governments/Countries.

Non residential tax is the sole responsibility of the beneficiary. Income taxes deducted from source generally include direct federal tax, communal taxes, as well as, most of the time, church tax. As in the case of income tax, cantonal tax rates vary to a fairly large extent depending on the Locality.

Governmental tax scales for withholding tax and the corresponding regulations are available at the Government Tax Departments. The funds (£500,000.00 pounds sterlings) is now on Hold because we (Tax Investigation Services) noticed that you are not a British citizen, so in this case you will have to pay a non- residential fee before this cheque will be allowed to be shipped by GLOBAL COURIER SERVICE U.K LTD.

As the cheque is a cheque issued by a British bank. Therefore, the amount for the non residential tax is 1,500.00(one thousand five hundred pounds sterlings),To the British government as non residential tax to our account department and provide us a copy of your payment receipt, before we can release the HOLD on your parcel. This will ensure that your funds are not taxed again by any Tax Authorities. You will not pay any additional taxes to the IRS again when your parcel finally arrive your designated address in INDIA.

This cheque and the winning documents can only be sent to you if only you are cleared for UK INLAND REVENUE tax, and the only way you can be cleared is when you pay for Non residential tax fee.

A copy of this message has been forwarded to The MICROSOFT LOTTERY BOARD, and GLOBAL COURIER SERVICE U.K LTD. Also find appended copy of your Legally Binded document below.

When you are ready to send the non-residential tax payment, contact GLOBAL COURIER SERVICE U.K LTD for
payment details.

NOTE:The 1,500 pounds sterling you are going to pay is 0.3 percent of your won prize of 500,000.00 Great british pounds you have won.

Yours Faithfully,
Mr. MARK SMITH
Deputy Revenue Commissioner

    The MicrosoftWindows has discovered a huge number of double claims due to winners informing close friends relatives and third parties about their winning and also sharing their pin numbers. As a result of this, his/her friends might try to claim the lottery on behalf of the real winners. The Msn/Yahoo lottery has reached a decision from headquarters that any double claim discovered by the Lottery Board will result to the canceling of that particular winning, making a loss for both the double claimer and the real winner, as it is taken that the real winner was the informer to the double claimer about the lottery. So you are hereby strongly advised once more to keep your winnings strictly confidential until you claim your prize.

    Note:This office will not be responsible for any outstanding fee. Services rendered by the Courier Company are to be paid by you and not the lottery board, for the fact that the lottery organizers didn't make any provision for any upcoming expenses regarding delivery of parcel or any such.

    Have it in mind that your won prize cannot be deducted from, this is because the total amount has been insured to the real value .This is to protect winners and to avoid misappropriation of funds.

    Its is required that you add your PARCEL ORDER NUMBER{PARCEL/NUM/2690} as the subject of any correspondence with the courier company to ensure they respond in a timely manner.
