I don`t know about this matter It`s true or not.
now what i do?
You guys, read the title above the website. What does it say? "Fraud Lottery & Spam Mail and took personal identification data with address i.e. PassPort Copy". It is Fraud! That means if you give money, they will run away! And by the way, this is not an organization, its individuals who do these tricks and you can't track them. Don't pay to scams like that. There is nothing we can't do in the internet. People have to be careful when giving personal information or money!
