[Resolved] AUSTRALIAN LOTTERY INCORPORATION — SCAM OR GENUINE
DDAMANIYA SAMEER PRAVINCHANDRA
I am Sameer Damaniya.I got a mail from Australian lottery Incorporation that you have been awarded/won $ 400000, is this information is right or wrong?
I also did some correspondence with BAR.CARLOS ALVES (AUSTRALIAN LOTTO AGENT. Email: [protected]@yahoo.co.uk & Phone no: [protected]). He gives me a duly notarized & stamped winner certificate of $400000 & also informs that his correspondence bank will contact me soon.
Then after I got an email from Mr. Alan Brown, cip, scc.Director Foreign Transfers, FORTIS BANK PLC, 2038 Winston Road, London, UK. (Phone no: [protected], [protected]) & the bank is required 3 documents which will I have to submit as soon as possible. This 3 document are a duly notarized & stamped winner certificate, Affidavit of claims from the crown court here in England & my passport copy.
BAR.CARLOS ALVES also suggested in his mail that for Affidavit of claims from crown court here in England, you have to contact,
Mr. BARRISTER ALEXANDER HUGHES,
ALEXANDER HUGHES AND ASSOCIATES.
SENIOR ADVOCATE OF LONDON BARRISTERS AND SOLICITORS-AT-LAW
ADDRESS: HAM STREET, HAM, RICHMOND,
TW10 7HN, UNITED KINGDOM
Phone number: +44 [protected].
Mr. Barrister inform me that I have to pay 360 British pound for that certificate & once I paid his fee, he will give me Affidavit of claim from crown court in England with in 2 hours.
All in my mind that I never played a lottery in Australia, so how will I won? I write an email to BAR.CARLOS ALVES & inform all this is a scam. What is prove that your Australian Lottery Incorporation is not Fake & Fraud Company. How should I believe that I am actual winner?
In written BAR.CARLOS ALVES reply me, “Our organisation is a hundred percent genuine and if you look on the top corner of the Winners Certificate you received, you will see all our office addresses and even registration number to show you that we are duly acknowledged and registered by the relevant bodies.
In order for you to know that we are for real, I have gone to the court of law to get you a reimbursement affidavit, which will assure you that in the event you make the required payment and something goes wrong, you will receive the money you paid with extra compensation of $5, 000.
I hope it will be good enough for you. I have also instructed the bank to send you a copy of 'Deposit Certificate' of your winning money. The certificate will show you that the said prize money was deposited in their bank by our Head of Operations, Mr. John Rudolph. It will also show that this money was deposited in your name so it belongs to you.
All that you need to do is to provide the required documents and the money will be available to you.”
Also FORTIS BANK PLC sends a copy of 'Deposit Certificate' & informs me to submit 3 documents that I mentioned earlier, so that the FORTIS BANK PLC can be enabled to make the transfer of winning money in my bank account.
Now what I want to know from Indian Consumer, what I have to do? Please provide me some suggestion. I am waiting for your reply.
