I have been intimated vide my email id that, I won a prize of 850,000.00 pounds sterlings on 6.11.07.against ticket No. [protected] and my Identification No. UKNL/OWN/9876.
Again I was informedd that my cheque for 850,000 Pound,winning certificate etc. handed over to courier company for transmission to me provided I make payment 808 USD as their handling charges.
In this connection i would say that, I am not in a position to confirm about the Prize whether actually I own any Prize or I am facing some frauds.
I have contacted some officials of said lottery deptt by using E.mail ID- [protected]@yahoo.it,but still I am not sure on my Prize.
Kindly help me in this regard.Actually I am ready to make payment of handling charges but if the winning certificate/cheque will not be honoured in India ,then my position will be precarious and there will be no way otherthan suicide.
We need immediate gudance from British Government.
Prize own from UKNL- 850,000.00 P.S
Sl. No.5368/02 (Draw- # 1238)
winning Nos. 03.10.22.25.31.49.(04)
Identification No. UKNL/OWN/9876

Awaiting a quick reply by return of this mail.
With sincere regards,
PRAVAT KUMAR DASH

I also got mail from UK National Draw, and Ref: EAASL/9410pI/02 and saying i have won 2 million pound
and later ask me to pay for courier charges and I refuse to pay, as per my knowledge no lottery company will ask courier charges and if really we are the winner then no need to pay a single money.

so dont get emotional .
i also got the mail from uk national draw, and REFERENCE NO: MSW-L/[protected] of amount £1, 000, 000.00 POUNDS
then i called to the phone no but the no is not working.This is fraud mail where they will earn money in illegal way

of about 60000 pounds. Is this [censored] or True??????????
Reply me as soon as possible!!!
Come on people! If it's too good to be true (which this is way over the top) then it is. Why would companies from other countries randomly select you for a prize?! They're a bunch of disgusting scumbags spread the word, do not let a loved one be scammed.
