RESULTS FOR CATEGORY "A" DRAWS
Congratulations to you as we bring to your notice, the results of the First Category draws of LUCKY STRIKE LOTTERY UK. We are happy to inform you that you have emerged a winner under the First Category, which is part of our promotional draws. The draws were held on 14th May 2004 and results are being officially announced today. Participants were selected through a computer ballot system drawn from 2,500, 000names/email addresses of individuals and
companies from Africa, America, Asia, Australia, Europe, Middle East, and Oceania as part of our International Promotions Program.
You/Your company, attached to ticket number 6422-5-486, with serial number 59-18 drew the lucky numbers 33-92-78-05 (18) and consequently won in the First Category.
You have therefore been awarded a lump sum pay out of £6,500,000 (Six million, five hundred thousand Great Britain Pounds), which is the winning payout for Category A winners. This is from the total prize money of £13,000,000 shared among the 2 winners in this category.
Your fund is now deposited with our transfer agents CASH CHANGE UK LTD and insured to the real value. In your best interest and also to avoid mix up of numbers and names of any kind, we request that you keep the entire details of your award strictly from public notice until the process of transferring your claims has been completed, and your funds remitted to your account. This is part of our security protocol to avoid double claiming or unscrupulous acts by participants/non participants of this program.
We also wish to bring to your notice our end of year premium stakes draw where you stand a chance of winning up to £50 million; we hope that with a part of your prize you will participate.
