[Resolved] China CITIc Bank - London — Emirates Airline Online Promotions
The below is one of numerous e-mails I received claiming that I won, and in this case 1,000,000 million British Pounds.
I've gone the route of corresponding with the people, i.e. Mr. Ralph Sawyer and Mrs. Juan Zhong. The e-mail below is the last e-mail I received claiming I need to pay a certain amount in order for them to process my claim due to Admin Charges. Only then will they release my money. With this e-mail below I received a professional 'Confirmation Slip' which looks very impressive.
IS THIS A SCAM?????
