    I am a Belizean and I have received three such emails. I am still waiting for them to come up with some valid proof that I won such money. Honestly I could do so much with 1.5 million Belize dollars. Belize is a poor country and I would be able to do so much for myself. Any how I did not send them any money.

    I accidentally gave them my Name and Address. Is that bad, because now I'm worried. I didn't give them my social security number, so I think I'm safe, but they know my address now.

    Who wouldn't need money now a days... but giving false hope and frustration is cruel... i sure wished the true Microsoft had a real lottery... but as they say, if it sounds too good to be true... it usually is... i sure hope they catch these scammers... and let them dream of freedom... but just give them false hope and frustration as well... hehehe.

    I received this same letter today! It said I won 850,000. lbs. I can't believe there was no e-mail address on the To: line. Is there even such a lottery???? Too good to be true is just that.

    I have been receiving these types of letters for over a year now and not one of them is legitimate. They always want all your information, including copy of your drivers license and bank account number so that they can verify who you are and then ask you to remit monies to pay for the cash transfer.

    Not once have I received any kind of winnings. Nor have I given them my real bank account or personal information. They have a tendency to back off when you ask them how much it will cost to have your winnings forwarded to you.

    Here's another scam:

    Attn: RECIPIENT

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    IDENTIFICATION NUMBER: xxxxxxx

    Your particulars have been received in this office. This means that you have been officially cleared for payment by the verifications Department at the headquarters of the City Lotto International, U.K. Your winning cheque, original copy of your winning certificate, together with a covering document (Money Laundering protection and Letter of Affidavit for Claims) from the British government stating that the money was obtained legally through the City Lotto promotion will be sent to you at YOUR ADDRESS, as soon as you choose from any of the option stipulated below. We can not scan a copy of any of these documents to you now as the courier agent nor courier delivery company does not have the right to view customers package.

    To begin the final step of the claims process, which is the shippment of your winning cheque prize to you, there are three options open to you. You are required to select the most convenient of the Three option before you.

    The options, together with their associated conditions are presented below. You are being required to pay the neccesary courier charges to enable us send you your cheque and other claim documents.

    Shipping your winning cross cheque to you via any of this channel listed below:


    DHL

    Mailing: £50.00 GBP



    UPS

    Mailing: £60.00 GBP



    FEDEX

    Mailing: £60.00 GBP

    "PLUS INSURANCE: £650 GBP" (KINDLY BE INFORMED THAT THE DOCUMENTS AND CHEQUE CANNOT BE SENT TO YOU WITHOUT BEEN INSURED AS IT WILL VIOLATE THE FEDERAL ACT OF PARLIAMENT GOVERNING INTERNATIONAL CHEQUE CLEARING, SO THE INSURANCE FEE IS TO BE PAYED IN ADDITION TO THE COST OF ANY OF YOUR COURIER OPTION ABOVE. ALSO BE INFORMED THAT THE COURIER COMPANY DO NOT INSURE DELIVERY, AND AS A RESULT DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE INSURANCE, SO ANY COURIER COMPANY YOU CHOOSE, WETHER DHL, UPS OR FEDEX, AS YOUR SHIPPING OPTION, DOES NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE INSURANCE, THE INSURANCE IS TO BE DONE HERE IN THE UK NATIONAL INSURANCE COMPANY. ALL THIS WILL BE DONE THROUGH THE DELIVERY DEPARTMENT.


    This department declined reverse payment for these charges, stating that it is against their professional policy towards ensuring the safe delivery of the cheque to you. That if a reverse payment is made, and something goes wrong, that we/you cannot sue the courier company or insurance company to recover the full value of the fund as stipulated in the cheque since payment for insurance cover was not made at point of mailing. With the above reason, reverse payment is ruled out. This means that you are liable to the insurance and delivery fee.

    Note: that your prize is protected by a hardcover insurance policy, which makes it impossible to deduct any amount from the money before it has been remitted to you. This means that the above charges cannot be deducted from the prize and hence must be provided by you before your prize is transferred to you. Failure to produce the requested insurance and courier delivery fee will mean cancellation of your winning, as the headquarters of the City Lotto, U.K, did not provide extra funds, but winnings cheques of winners from different category and necessary documents to clear the winning cheques by these winners. This is in accordance with section 13(1)(n) of the City Lotto gambling act as adopted in 1993 and amended on 3RD July 1996 by the constitutional assembly. This is to protect winners and to avoid misappropriation of funds

    Once again I say congratulations and hope to hear from you soon.

    I was given this msg today, which states almost the same message, others are complaining about
    I received the msg to this email account: <[email protected]>
    And this msg redirected me to:
    [email protected]

    The wrong thing is, i replied immediately... though I have a clue that it is a scam... i just hope that those information may not lead to other, but in succeeding days, i'll make sure that they won't be able to get what they really want...I guess this is also a lesson for me.
