    Please carefully review the following Scam-O-Matic results:

    This email looks like a fake lottery scam.
    Consider the following facts about real lotteries:

    They do not notify winners by email.
    You can not win without first buying a lottery ticket.
    They do not randomly select email addresses to award prizes to.
    They do not use free email accounts (Yahoo, Hotmail, etc) to communicate with you.
    They do not tell you to call a mobile phone number.
    They do not tell you to keep your winnings secret.
    They will never ask a winner to pay any fees to receive a prize!
    Any "courier service", "lawyer" or "bank" that a fake "lottery" may have introduced you to is also fake!
    The following phrases should put you on alert:
    "transfer of your funds":
    they want you to be blinded by the prospect of quick money, but the only money that ever changes hands in 419 scams is from you to the criminals
    This email lists mobile phone numbers. Use of such numbers is typical for scams because they allow criminals to conceal their true location. They can receive calls in an Internet cafe from where they send you emails, while pretending to be in some office.
    +447035974506 (UK, redirects to a mobile phone in another country)
    This email lists free webmail addresses. Besides personal use for legitimate purposes, use of such addresses is also typical for scams. NOTE: Lotteries, banks, government agencies and any but the smallest of companies do not normally use such addresses. Criminals use them to anonymously send and receive email at Internet cafes.

    Hello, my name and I am wilkins Dominican Republic

    RECEIVED also have this type of mail, when you commit ... sex ... my name and address, he answered quickly and that alone can make some sort of program for multi post.

    another thing is, part of the scam they send you a serial number that everyone who has written not want to reveal, it is true that the same type of mail and that makes it false if Toyota starts to give away many thousands of pounds sterling, and we were in bankruptcy, we should never pay first for a transfer, the bank's regular mind takes of the same think also why it is scam because they ask for payment first and that a bank would not.

    also is that there is no advertising of the contest, even if advertising would also be internal, that in a matter of marketing that would be great publicity for any company (which has the reputation that Toyota does not need it really) that take undoubtedly, making it more false is the large amount of gifts from an international company and a bank with such renown expose a simple mail hotmail, yahoo, etc (of course without diminishing free emails that give us service, although the thieves use it very well).

    Email notice the composition of bank [email protected]

    "citi bnk" bnk is spelled and have used it so many times that hotmail is not registered as a bank ---- "plc89" use the acronym but certainly international bank with a series of numbers for follow-up to those who respond and creation of the same email account, and also clear that the scammers are logically the UK or use it to fill the eyes for signs of 750, 000.00 pounds sterling money, in my country that is a lot lot of money so as not to work but since the age you have until your death and it fits the rest of your family.

    Finally, I think you can do the diligence from citi bank branch nearest it is in every step on the world practically

    but your local bank is called HOST which is a communication from bank to bank to send anywhere in the world to your bank account by charging customers who send a minimum of 20 to 30 dollars no more, ahh and are certain to want to make a formal surrender of an award like this toyota or both citi bank to work with their advertising ... imagine jajajajajajaj

    can follow their views in these directions to continue denying this false information
