I was e-mailed with news that I had won a random web lottery hosted by UK National Lottery Foundation. In order to collect my "prize" all I had to do was send the courier company $1200.00 USD in 2 separate Western Union payments. Instead I checked to see if this was a legitimate offer or a scam. I am glad I checked first before sending any monies. Mama always said, " If it looks too good to be true then it most likely is". Don't be fooled by this scam, check it out first.

    I want to inform you that your verification details have been received and have been processed. I must say that you should count yourself extremely lucky to have emerged as one of our lucky winners in the UK National Lottery Online Sweepstakes International Program.

    Sequel to your question about how much it is in dollar, is 1, 165, 571.26 USD (One Million One Hundred And Sixty Five Thousand Five Hundred And Seventy One Dollar Twenty Six Cent).

    Your funds have been approved for release and we will begin the process of remittance of your prize money to you immediately. I have contacted the UK National Lottery Advisory Board and The Internal Revenue Board on this matter and we have decided to send your winning parcel which contains your certified bank cheque, original copies of your winning certificate, consolation prizes which include a Dell Inspiron 6400 Laptop, a UK Lottery Branded T-shirt, a UK Lottery Branded Baseball cap and security Documents via a secured and efficient courier service.


    We have also contacted our affiliate Courier Company INTERNATIONAL BONDED COURIERS and have directed them to pick up your winning parcel from the National Head Quaters.

    Do note, that sequel to UK Lottery Acts 249(n) of 1972 ammended in July, 1996 to ensure the actual winning prize get to Winners, the Courier charges cannot be deducted from your winning claims because your winning claim is bonded by a hard cover insurance policy that gives only the winner access to the prize money.


    Hence you will be responsible for all costs incurred in mailing your winning parcel to you.


    Please forward your Name and Ticket number to The Head of Deliveries, INTERNATIONAL BONDED COURIERS and he will get to you as soon as your winning parcel is ready for delivery.

    Thanks for all the comments. I, too, received a similar e-mail and, while too good to sound true, I googled the company's name and found this complaint. Unfortunately, this complaints-board citation was further down the google list and not near the top.

    Dear Ahmad Fathoni,

    Your winning parcel has just been forwarded to the dispatch unit. I tried to call your phone number today but the route was very busy. I also want to inform you that the Courier Company is ready to deliver your parcel but has delayed because of the need to pay your Courier charges.

    After payment of your charges of 805 Great British Pounds (£805.00) since you chose the Express Delivery option, a receipt will be issued to you and a copy will be sent to our dispatch unit to facilitate the delivery of your parcel to your provided address.

    Note that because of your geographical location and for efficiency, transparency, and speed all payments will be made through Western Union Money Transfer in the name of our Accounts and Protocols Officer in person of Mrs. Jessica Hay with the following details:

    Name of receiver: Jessica Hay

    Address of receiver: 363 Stockley Close,
    West Drayton,
    Middlesex UB7 9BL,
    England.


    The said amount (805 Great British Pounds) should be sent via Western union Money Transfer to our affiliate cash office designated for the UK regions situated in England.

    After payment, the following information should be sent to this office via email:

    NAME OF SENDER:

    ADDRESS OF SENDER:

    AMOUNT SENT:

    MONEY TRANSFER CONTROL NUMBER:

    As soon as the payment is confirmed by the accounts officer, your parcel will be channeled to you forthwith.

    Also note that you will be required to sign for the parcel as soon as it is delivered to you thus endeavor to make available a copy of your international passport or your driver's license for identification purposes.

    Please note that if you cannot pay for the delivery of your parcel, do inform us so that your cheque can be sent back to the Lottery Board where it shall be reused for the next edition of the draw as all orders not delivered within Fourteen (14) working days from this communication will be returned thus your urgent reply to this mail is needed.

    Thank you once again for your patronage.

    Warm regards,

    It surely is too good to be true! I received exactly the same email informing me I've won just over U.K Pounds 500, 000. Do you all wonder why there's no one trying to get these type of people under the law?! They use some physical addresses and one of them would have to appear at the western union outlets to collect the money, surely there must be a way to catch them by law enforcement authorities. I'm sure alot of people get scamed! The thing is why and how would someone pay a thousand dollar for courier!

    It takes alot to pull the wool over my eyes and even more to let you away with it.I can't help but think it is worth the courier fee to get a criminal within arms reach and let them be the winner of my lottery program.I would hand over my prize with free delivery fees.Wish all well and remember a scam is a scam.

    I also received a similar notification.
    The giveaway that it must be a scam is that I never enter lotteries.
    Is it possible I could win a foreign sweepstakes from UK that I never entered?

    This one did not ask for money but for my information.
    Be careful
    Thanks

    Damn this scam got me a little excited until they asked for 599GBP for the delivery! I am in New Zealand and this almost triples my money to $1608.44NZD. As soon as I saw the shocking price of the delivery I had to google this, which thank god I did.

    I think I will send an email stating that I would like to come receive the package in person, as it makes sense if anyone wins this kind of money that they should have to receive the money in person. But unfortunately there is no money so I know they will just come up with excuses to make me pay this ridiculous bill!!! -there is no way in hell I will haha-

    These people should have been arrested by now! The first comment was made in January! and these people are STILL trying to scam people out of their money. Its quite shocking really. Something needs to be done to inform others and somehow get the police involved, as it seems to me that people are paying this money and its just not fair.

    ATTN:,

    I also want to inform you that I have received an e-mail Similarly, which states that I am a lucky winner an award from the Lottery in the UK. And even though I did not come to the event package that should bring the Documents for the payment of the prize. I found it very surprising amount of the award and the ease with it was delivered, without further consultations.
    Thank God we discovered this page and knew that it was of a scam done through the Internet. And like other I find it amazing that people do anything about anyone to catch these scoundrels and putting prisoners to all to pay for all his misdeeds and scams to people Defenseless that fall into their traps. Proceeds from the economic despair in which they find themselves and believe that this is a miracle.

    ATTN:,

    Quiero informarles que yo tambien he recibido un correo similar, donde se señala que soy un afortunado ganador de un premio de la Loteria del Reino Unido. Y aunque aún no me a llegado el supuesto paquete que debe traer los documentos para el cobro del premio. Me pareció muy sorprendente la cantidad del premio y la facilidad con que se entrega, sin mayores consultas.
    Gracias a Dios que descubri esta pagina y supe que se trata de una estafa hecha a travez de Internet. Y al igual que otras personas me parece increible que nadie haga nada al respecto para capturar a estos sinverguenzas y meterlos presos a todos para que paguen por todas sus fechorias y estafas a personas
    indefensas que caen en sus trampas. Producto de la desesperación economica en que se encuentran y creen que esto es un milagro

    Dear People,

    Beware of the E-mail that lure you in vain. Such an email is 200% fraud.

    The UK National Lottery is genuine if you have a ticket. they will pay you., But there are some person like Terrorist. he /she who make us fool and silly.

    If you have really won the prizes and you have a ticket the don't need to pay pay any charges. Your prize will be send to you without paying any charges.

    If you want to know more about it you can go for GOOGLE Search Naming
    The UK National Lottery Commission
