    Yes this is a fake promo.

    Please note: if you recieve anything stating you have won a lottery or sweepstakes in a foriegn country it is a scam to get into your bank account and bleed you dry. Why is this,
    1)it is illegal as a US citizen to participate in a foreign lottery.
    2) did you sign up for such a contest, if not then it is obviously a fake.

    Hi all,
    I am Raj. One of my friend anand got the same mail.He sent me phone no. I called the person and told him that I am Rahul Arora (its a fake name).
    I told him that I got the massege. he congrulated me and asked me to submit more information.
    I asked about authencity and recognition. He gave me website address which is not working. then I told him that IAGR donot provide any licence. he said if you want the go for it or just ignore.
    He also said that before getting money, you have to pay 620 GBP.
    I think its cheat but i am not sure. Tell me whether you guys have same experience or was that different one?

    i got a similar mail and i called up the person. when asked for the identity he just asked me to follow the instructions in the mail. but i don't remember the instruction askin for any money. i think if there is any demand for money then we should not take any chance. it is a hoax and no body should respond to such mails.

    I have been billed for data usage 3.9gig on the 19/10/16 at 5:38am.
    The secession lasted 40 secs. This is impossible for cellc to provide
    the speed of download to download almost 4gig of data in 40sec.

    I wish we could have that download speed in south Africa.
