    Hi All, I too have received such mail from them and when i replied asking them to process my award, they have sent me a form asking for my personal details, passport no. etc., and they say that either they can send a cash cheque to me by courier or i can travel to UK to collect personally.

    All this looks a clear fraud ... as many of you too have received such mails & why someone would be interested to giveaway Millions of $$.

    I also saw on other website that, they have asked a person to send Rs.57,000/- to UK to release his cash award. Its a new way of cheating people online.

    If you have any more info kindly reply to my id "[email protected]". Thanks

    If there is one person who has received something, even the run around when they call respond to me.
