[Resolved]  MSN/Yahoo Lottery Board — Winning of a lottery worth 950,000.00 British Pounds Sterling

Have received a mail from The above mentioned Company wherein they have stated that I have got a mail of winning 950,000.00 British Sterling Pounds but to get a delivery of the cheque I need to send them an amount of Rs.53,000. as courier charges. Does this not sound rediculous?

They have been disturbing me regularly and have really broken my nerve. I want to take a legal caction against them. Kindly advice.

Dear sir,
This kind of letter i have recevied ,i can't understand this what is this.Please help me.

Thanks
This is a fake msg to cheat u. And i[censored] want to take legal action against them then somebody need to take initiative to form a group against these frauds. So just think of forming a group "anti cyber crime group". Then blog with others to get legal action against these fellows and eradicate them from India. I[censored] continue contact with them they will give an a/c, just publish that a/c in this site. Most probably it will be an ICICI a/c because they protect their customers identity well. And it is very difficult to get back the sum, even money is in the a/c, i[censored] pay money to this a/c.
I received one mail in that you have the winner of yahoo-awards,2008 in that they send your fund through transfer but i have to produce an affidavit for that transfer. It is true or not. Then they also mail me one yahoo award certificate in my name. it is true or not. please mail me sir.
Dear Sir,

Sm1 4te United, kingdom)and i have pay 35000 Rs. for delivery charges.

yes, i too have recieved the same mail;

yahoo should ban all these activities by fradulent people,
over the net;
or yahoo has to take responsibilities of such frauds.
