I have come across these scams before, actually, I get them frequently in my email. This one I followed their instructions almost all the way through (I DID NOT SEND ANY MONEY). I did so just to see how much they thought they could get out of me.

NOTE: If you go to Western Union online, it will tell you to NEVER SEND MONEY FOR LOTTERY WINNINGS..AND NEVER TO AN INDIVIDUAL THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW PERSONALLY.
Additionally: It is illegal for an individual of the United States to win ANY Lotteries from another country....PERIOD.

So, if you got this email or ones like it, just report it here.

#2 - EMAIL AFTER I PROVIDED THE INFORMATION THEY REQUESTED.
ATTENTION: Stormy D. Taylor

We hereby inform you that we have processed your payment and your cheque is ready for disbursement, along with your winnings certificate. In this regard you are to choose from the options below the one that best suites you on how you wish to receive your funds, also your funds deposited with us is not in liquid form but in Bank Cheque, this advice complies with the Anti-Fraud section 2,sub section (iv) of the procedural manual of the funds disbursement agreement existing between courier companies and the British Government.

1. Travel in person to collect your funds at our offshore financial centre in Saint Helier, Bailiwick of Jersey ( British Crown Dependency). You will be required to present a valid International Passport as proof of Identification.

2. Have our affiliate courier company send the cheque to you. In consonance with our policy in this regard, be advised that if you opt for the cheque to be couriered BRITISH TOBACCO MEGA JACKPOT PROMOTION,exempts itself from all liability related to this service.
The cost of this service would be borne by you; this is a prerequisite for this option. You will be referred to our affiliate courier company so that you can make enquires concerning modalities, and charges. The reason for the courier option is for the fact of double taxation, that is if you are to come over to sign for the release of your winnings personally, you would have to pay taxes on the winnings in Saint Helier, Bailiwick of Jersey and then go and pay taxes on the same winnings in your country once the funds get there.

This is the main reason why we would advise that you take the courier option, you have not collected the winnings until you sign for it and the only way you can sign for it via courier is when you have taken delivery of the parcel containing the winnings cheque and certificate of winning.

We expect that you will notify us of your choice upon receipt of this message so that appropriate arrangement can be put in place.Be advised that your winnings would be paid to you in installments of $150,000.00{one hundred and fifty Thousand United States Dollars}. This is done because of the amount won by you, this money would be paid to you on monthly basis for the next 10 {Ten} months .You are advised to keep your winning numbers secret to avoid unscrupulous elements from taking advantage of the situation. Once again, congratulations.
