FROM THE DESK OF MR.MOHAMMED RAHIM, REGIONAL CLAIMS AGENT, AUSTRALIA INTERNATIONAL LOTTERY PROGRAMME.REGIONAL CLAIMS VERIFICATION OFFICE.
My Dear Brother:Shakeb Hasan Khan (Lucky Winner)
Assalam Alaikun My Dear Brother how are you am deeply sorry to reply you late this is because i have been very busy trying to arrange some money to assist you complete the required Bank Administrative fee which is required and due to the nature of this transfer i have decided to assist you with half of the required money which is $1, 250UsDollars (One Thousand Two Hundred And Fifty US Dollars) it is the only money that i can afford now and i hope that Insha Allah once you receive your prize money that you will send to my money back to me as soon as possible i trust in you and take you as a Muslim Islamic Brother that is why am doing this and i want you to take me as one also and stop casting doubts about my personality,
Please i also wish to give you some cautionary information regarding this your Lottery Won Prize Money and i believe this is the ideal time to point this out.. since the running of this lottery programme over the years we have recorded some huge successes but have also noted something i would like to call "attempted failure" by some scrupulous elements who are poised to tarnish the image of the Australian Lottery Inc, these corrupt individuals/officials are concerned with the dubious interest of boycotting the winning prizes of some of winners, they achieve this selfish interest by sending all discouraging letters to their email and on websites (Google, etc) that will bias the mind of winners and in the end they tend to claim your winning prize to their coffers and also ask for money more and more before they transfer your prize to you that is actually why iam here in Nigeria to Guide you.
But its goodness as the Australian Lottery Inc has set up a specialist investigative unit who are investigating on this deeply, and we are getting close to tracking them down this is actually the reason why we do not publish the Information nor Details of our Winners in Websites and that of the Bank.
I want you to be rest assured that your winning prize is in safe hands all you need is follow my instructions and your prize shall be transferred to your account in no distant time.that is why i want you to take me as a friend and a Brother because i have your interest at heart all you have to do is to send the remaining Balance of $1, 250UsDollars to the Bank and they will transfer your prize money to your account in India, Access Bank Plc is one of the Leading Financial Institutions in Africa.
Aaccess Bank is only an Affiliate of Access Bank Plc And they are only for International Transfers also they boast a very wonderful track and financial record for International Transfers also, just recently they received the Merit Award for the Bank Of The Year 2008 and so therefore they are more than capable of delivering so i assure you that there is no problem all you have to do is to follow their rules and provide its transfer requirements and Insha Allah you shall get you won prize money in your Bank Account within 48 Hours.
Lastly i will send the money to the Bank tomorrow morning and once they confirm it i want you to send the remaining Balance of $1, 250UsDollars to them through Western Union with the payment details given to you and after your prize money has reflected in your Account please inform me so that i will provide you with my account information were you will refund to me the money which i paid on your behalf.
I hope to hear from you soon Allah Hafiz
