Nokia Lottery — scam lottery
I've received the following email stating that I have won 91000GBP, however the payment release form requires the following information:
1. Name & Surname
2. Mobile Number
3. Payment to either DHL, FedEx or UPS for delivery fees, approximately 500 pounds
4. Delivery Address
5. Copy of drivers licence or international passport for identification.
I am also required to keep my win strictly confidential until the said funds has been received. This is to avoid impersonation or double claims which they claim they have experienced in previous draws. Below is the email sent to me. I would appreciate if you would advise soonest if this is a scam.
Date: 31st August, 2007.
