The Spoof Email ...
Compliments of the day to you.
Attached to this e-mail is a copy of your winning certificate and your draft money . This means that you have been officially cleared for payment by the Verifications Dept. at the headquarters of the UK National Lottery. The original copy of this 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 their National Lotto will be sent to you as soon as you meet with any of the option selected.
You can now begin the final step of the claims process, which is the transferring of your cash prize to you. With regards to this, there are two options open to you, you are required to select the most convenient of the two. The options, together with their associated conditions
are presented below:
Courier of your winning draft to you via any of this channel listed below:
Vat (5%) ?022.75
Mailing &n bsp; ?189.00
Vat (5%) ?021.95
POST OFFICE MAIL
Mailing ; ?130.00
Vat (5%) ?019.00
The insurance company declined reverse payment for the courier, stating that it is against their professional policy towards ensuring the safe delivery of the draft to you. That if a reverse payment is made, an d something goes wrong, that we/you cannot sue the courier company or insurance company to recover the full value of t he fund as stipulated in the draft since payment for insurance cover was not made at point of mailing.
With the above reason, reverse payment is ruled out. Forward the cost of mailing your draft with any of the courier channel cost you choose above to us.
The said amount ?218,086 (Two hundred and eighteen thousand, eighty six pounds sterling) will be wired to your bank account via swift bank transfer.
Condition: The cost of COT (commission of transfer) being charged by our transferring bank, which is 1.4% of the cash being transferred will be paid by you. 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.
Please respond to this email by making a selection from the two options above. Also attach a scanned copy of either your driver's
licence, international passport (photo page) or any other legally identifying document.
Also be reminded that the deadline for the claiming of winnings is exactly two weeks after the receipt of this email. After this period, your cash prize will be deemed to have been forfeited by you and will be reused in the drawings of the next edition of the lottery.
Good luck and Congratulations once again. Please send your response within the next 24hrs to this same email address and that of the fiduciary agent .
Mrs Mary Adams
