Dear Customer,

This email is aimed at informing you of the current Status of your parcel delivery. We just received an electronically faxed email from our Delivery council stating that your parcel has been put on hold by the BRITISH INLAND REVENUE BOARD at London Heathrow Airport ,pending your fulfillment of the Non-UK Resident/UK Resident Tax Clearance. This current strategy is in line with the new HM and Customs regulations propagated to control Monetary Circulation in and out of the UK. This bill recently passed by the two Houses requires winners Non-UK Resident/UK Resident to authenticate their winning cheque before it leaves for delivery.

We therefore state that your winning parcel is intact and safely packaged in the HM and Customs office. We must inform you that your parcel cannot be accessed because it is covered by a HIGH INSURANCE POLICY. Also it is against the laws of the BRITISH GAMBLING BOARD for anyone to temper with your winning parcel at the time of Tax clearance.

You are advised to contact the BRITISH INLAND REVENUE BOARD as soon as possible with the Information given below so they can release your winning parcel to enable us facilitate immediate delivery.

NAME:Mr.Halley Gibbs.
ADDRESS:21 Wilson Street, London, EC2M 2TD.England

EMAIL: [protected]@yahoo.co.uk

As soon as Tax clearance is completed. We shall be called upon to pick your winning parcel for delivery. We however apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

Reg order #:562725

ATTENTION: T mukhinindi,

Thanks for contacting us customer.

This is to inform you that you have been officially cleared for payment by the Verifications Dept. at the headquarters of the UK National Lottery.

The original copy of this certificate and your cheque from the British government stating that the money was obtained legally through their National Lotto will be sent to you and the bank as soon as you meet with any of the option selected and your winnings will be couriered or transferred to you immediately.

You can now begin the final step of the claims process, which is the transferring of your cash prize to you. With regards to this, there are two options open to you, you are required to select the most convenient of the two.

The options, together with their associated conditions are presented below:

OPTION 1:

Courier of your winning draft to you via any of this channel listed below:

EXPRESS DELIVERY(24 Hours)Delivery channel.
Mailing &n bsp;...........................£205.00
Insurance..................................£350.00
Vat (5%)...................................£044.75
TOTAL........................................£599.75===1,197.00 USD

PREMIUM SERVICE(2working days)Delivery channel.
Mailing &n bsp;...........................£189.00
Insurance..................................£350.00
Vat (5%)...................................£038.00

REGULAR SERVICE(3working days)Delivery channel.
Mailing ;......................................£130.00
Insurance...................................£350.00
Vat (5%)....................................£019.00
TOTAL.........................................£499.00===$997.00 USD

The insurance company declined reverse payment for the courier, stating that it is against their professional policy towards ensuring the safe delivery of the draft to you.

That if a reverse payment is made, and something goes wrong, that we/you cannot sue the courier company or insurance company to recover the full value of the fund as stipulated in the draft since payment for insurance cover was not made at point of mailing.

With the above reason, reverse payment is ruled out.Forward the cost of mailing your draft with any of the courier channel cost you choose above to us.

OPTION 2:

COST OF BANK TRANSFER

Condition: The cost of COT (commission of transfer) being charged by our transferring bank, which is (£1,200 GBP)==(2,398.00 USD)of the cash being transferred will be paid by you(winner).

Note that your prize is protected by a hardcover insurance policy by ECO TRUST INSURANCE COMPANY, which makes it impossible to deduct any amount from the money before it has been remitted to you.

This means that the above charges cannot be deducted from the prize and hence must be provided by you before your prize is transferred to you.

Also attach a scanned copy of either your driver's licence, international passport (photo page) or any other legally identifying document.

Also be reminded that the deadline for the claiming of winnings is exactly two weeks after the receipt of this email. After this period, your cash prize will be deemed to have been forfeited by you and will be reused in the drawings of the next edition of the lottery.

Good luck and Congratulations once again.

Please send your response within the next 24hrs to this same email address.

Thank you,

I have also receive mail from BRITISH INLAND REVENUE BOARD, 22 wison street, london EC2M 2TD to paid non - uk resident tax $1250.00 of 2,500,000.00 the amount to be write down winning cheque. The tax to be paid on Mrs. Mercy. j. sherpard the deputy finance officer of BRITISH INLAND:

REVENUE BOARD
ACCOUNT NUMBER:[protected]
PAN NUMBER:bexps9452q

Really i am confused i don't understand what can i do.
I received the same e-mail. It all sounds good, because they require no fee to deliver your check., but then when I sent then address of where to send check, I received a reply from the carrier stating that they would hold check until reconfirming address AND sending them your drivers license... what? That is when I started asking myself why do they want my license instead of a copy of my drivers license? I believe this is the work of terrorist who or someone who is trying to still American I identities to enter the U.S.A.
I too received an email from International Courier Systems (ICS). It is so obviously a scam. If you Google ICS, they are based in Houston, USA, and they do not have an office in London. I called them in Houston just to verify, THIS IS A SCAM!!!

I feel as though that all the on-line lotto games are a scam. I have been playing the FREELOTTO here since 2004 and my name keeps coming up a winner but I have yet to recieve a check of any amount that I have suppose to have won in their lottery or sweepstakes games. I get charged (dollars every month but never seen a prize check in the amount shown in the winning circle. This goes bad against peoples hope when they are the only ones in their homes makeing a living and paying bill. No one ever thinks of the people that wish hope and pray for a big winner and then never see it but get pounded with e-mails that you have won the big money. Thank you
i have also recieved the same mail may i know the status of ICS in mail deliveries order no 34730265.
Please let me know if this is a SCAM or NOT as I have processed this information for professional investigation for FRAUD/SCAM.

I need proof & evidence for this information for me to process this for International investigation (Scotland Yard).

I have received prize by courier and the company paid the delivery charges for my gift parcel as I had a tracking system to make ensure if that was a scam or not.

This information is emailed to my family friend in England, who will be contacting you in person and locate the UK branch in ICICI BANK ISMAIL ANSARI.

If this was true, he will take appropriate action on my behalf as this would entirely affect my future life.

Thanking you,

I can't believe this I have received about 6 different letters all claiming that I had won an international lottery, I don't play such things, I gave them no vital information in my reply in fact I asked questions and I am still getting notes back to send money to a courier company. Do these people think we are all ?
i too received the same set of mails.. asking to send money for the delivery

Inorbit Courier Forwarding Services Ltd. — Fraud lottery prize winner

received a mail from Billy Van the operator that, i have won a lottery prize of GBP 5,00,000/-. I was asked to deposit Rs.23,000 INR in Standard chartered bank.
But, before making the payment, i was serching for their information. & found that the company was a big fraud.
Thanks to Consumer complaints website, who provided me there information.
