[Resolved] FNB of South Africa — SNB South Africa
I too have recieved notice that I have won 1 million dollars. That I would need to pay $900 in taxes before I can have my winning forewarded to my account. Please note the statement I recieved below!!!
Of course, I DID NOT send the requestid amount. No lottery I know of works that way.
These people need to be punished
