    I have received a mail stating that I won 450 000gbp. Ref. number: 700DMUK291176S, Batch number: UK065/088/XY2400

    There address: 61B Ashbourne Avenue, London, NW11 ODT, United Kingdom.

    After much conversation the money was sent and when I couldn't get all the money the "claims Agent" Mr. Mike Jerkins, told me that he would help me and then when I paid my last he all of a sudden first wanted his money because a friend of his had the same experiance and that he didn't get his money back and now he wants his money first before reseasing the money to be delivered. When I asked him to put me in touch with Dr. William Ford, the online Group Coordinator he told me that it is against company polisy to do so.

    I was just wondering if this is a scam and if so how do I report this and to whom?

    I RECEIVED TE SAME E-MAIL WITH THE SAME NUMBERS. I HAVE BEEN RESEARCHING THE COURIERS TO CHECK PARCEL NUMBERS---YAH RIGHT, I COULDNT GET ANYWHERE. HONESTLY-THESE PEOPLE/COMPANIES THAT STATE YOU WIN SHOULD SEND IT TO YOU WITHOUT AN HASSLES. I DO UNDERSTAND TAXES AND STUFF BUT TO PUT OUT MONIES TO SEND IT TO YOU IS THE REAL EYE-OPENER. THEY COULD SEND IT TO YOU PENDING COD CHARGES. I WOULD RATHER DO THAT THEN SEND $280.00 OUT TO SOMEONE I DO NOT KNOW. TIMES ARE GETTING TUFF AS IS AND I AM NOT SENDING ANY MONEY TO ANYONE WITHOUT A GUARENTEE OF SOME NATURE. I NEED MORE THEN A SO-CALLED PARCEL NUMBER THAT I CAN NOT TRACK EVEN IN THE UK. I REALLY WISH I WS GETTING ONE MILLION POUNDS STERLING----PLAY THE LOTTERY---

    Thank you for this and I truly mean it from the bottom of my wallet!!!
    I've heard of scams and con artists but this one cuts the cake!
    I'm wondering if Mr. Bill Gates has a "Microsoft Award Team" ?
    Yeah! the one that doesn't exists. I use to live in Seattle Washington and sure enough Mr. Gates would of had some kind of announcement about some "Microsoft Award Team" giving out 1, 000, 000.00 just for having an e-mail or whatever.
    Boy, what some people would do just to get money.
    For the root of all evil is "MONEY". That's when you use it to deliberately want to hurt other people in the long run.
    Too bad for them, because what goes around, comes around and your days are numbered. How about those numbers Mr. Williams Harlen and Mr. Andy Johnson. You shouldn't have to pay for a paper cheque if it gets sent in the mail but true maybe for the liability of insurance through a real "Courier". So, this is a relief for me to know that there are some good people out there who are willing to share information on bad people who hurt others with their lies and deceptions. But I do wish the best for those who really can use a break in this STRESSFUL world that we live
    in. Take care everyone and keep your sanity.
    Thanks Ms. Leasau (aka Mae)
