To all those who have posted in the threads here:

Please try to understand that there is nothing in the world as "Free money".
You have to question yourself as follows:

1. How did I get this message?
2. Did I really apply to get into this competition?

This is just one of the series of notorious activities performed by some people... mostly from Kenya and other African countries... to deceive people and make great amount of money out of those who are decieved.

After you pay the minimum amount of money they ask for, they disappear. You will never be able to find them again nor make a complaint to anybody to get back the money.

If I had believed all the messages and emails like these I got, and if they were all true, I would be the richest person in the whole world... with full of "Free money" in my house! :)

Please don't fall for these fraudulant messages.
no fruit better than hard work
ya i also recieved a message in the same way !!
what should we do ??

The same message came to me stating that u had won GBP 250000.00 and the same proceedings as said above.
If they r giving money to many of them means is it bank or what. Its fraud i think coz many have got the same sms n messages also, Better be careful friends. ignore it n be safe
if they are doing this kind of fraud and involving the name of natwest bank then the bank should run some campaign to make the poeple aware.

Hi friends,
Me also got the same mail...It is very much obvious that the mail is fake..No one can give such a huge amount even to a single person...It is sure that they have sent this mail to many people like us.As somebody mentioned above, we have not really applied or entered in such a lucky draw.It would have some reliability if it was announced for a single person..These facts are more than enough to understand the fraudulent nature of the whole thing..Lets stop this here without much inquiry regarding this...
