Received an email from Christopher Smith, wherein he mentioned about me won a Lottery and and my ticket number is : 71471999545 913 with Serial number 5368/02, the amount was 97,000.00GBP.
After that they asked for personal information, and then received Email from Sir Michael Wickham,Sprint International Courier, stating,ATTN: Shubhojit Roy,

In response to your mail, I want you to know that I understand your doubts but be informed that this is no scam for the UKNL Foundation is a non-profit making organisation who has been working hand-in-hand with Sprint International Couriers for over a decade now and it would be a thing of shame to be involved in any form of online scam.

We are not blind to the fact that there are very many bogus Internet scam out there trying to impersonate the UK NATIONAL LOTTERY FOUNDATION but it is the responsibility of you and I to embrace life in general and to wisely know what is right or wrong. So, with your position being falsifiable, now, at least, you have a ground to stand on. The reason for your skeptic frame of mind is tied in to the Burden of Proof which is the actual delivery of your winning parcel to you. I assure you that we will commence the release of your parcel as soon as your delivery charges have been confirmed by our accounts officer.

We would not have asked you to pay for delivery if the said parcel was not legitimate. It is part of our duty to confiscate ILLEGITIMATE parcels leaving or entering the UK and I can assure you that this parcel is a winning parcel from the UK NATIONAL LOTTERY and it has been deemed LEGITIMATE and ACCEPTABLE by any Bank worldwide.

I want you to know that I have also attached a letter of guarantee obtained from the high court of law here in England to assure you that as soon as payment is received for delivery, we shall deliver your parcel to your provided address within the stipulated time.

Finally, I would like you to inform us if you are still interested in employing our services because it is impossible for us to operate a cash on delivery service for a parcel of this nature. If your response is positive, we shall upload your delivery address into our database and issue you a tracking number which you can use to monitor your parcel on our online tracking portal at all times and also furnish you with information to make the required payment.

Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.

Sir. Michael Wickham.
Head of Deliveries.
Sprint International Couriers

and after that i replied so that can find out, what is happening, if that's a scam i sent Email:Sir,

How to make the payment, and sir, please I beg you, don't take my money. And give me nothing, if so happens my family will lose everything, we are a very middle class family. And if I have the money will help my 1year son for his future life. Please respect our feelings, and don't be a fraud9i am sorry, not to make feel bad). But, me and my wife offers you a humble request please treat us they way u have treated your own kid and wife, please don't make us be on roads.

For my safety , I have forwarded all the information to my lawyers and the higher police commissioner in the loop, and apart from that it hasn't been informed to any single person, as he is fortunately my wife's own uncle. And Sir, we request that before we transfer the amount, we need personal information of yours, and at least speak to you, or can call me at my number 9866******, Please that's the only request, and after that let me know how to make the payment.
He Replied:
Dear Sir,

I was just about sending you your tracking number and information to make payment before your email came in. Like I have said several times, If I tell you that we are not aware of the alarming rate of fraud on the internet these days, I would be telling you a lie. What these fraudsters do is that they use the name of reputable companies like ourselves to perpetrate these scams thereby presenting a false image of this reputable courier firm to the public. One thing you should note is that we have a registered website and domain name which contains all our contact details and if anything goes wrong, you could alert the authorities in your country and here in the United Kingdom to take necessary action. If it'll make you feel better, I want you to know that because of certain monetary regulations put in place by your government, you will have to make the payment into the bank account of our regional accountant in your country and the account is traceable.

On the other hand, if you do not feel okay with this transaction. I advice its best you follow your heart. Maybe its just a way your mind tells you that you may not be able to handle so much money and as the saying goes "more money, more problems" as I have heard of tales where money has seperated families. If this is the case, all you'll have to do is write us a letter stating that you wish to forfeit your winnings and your reasons for doind so.

I look forward to your prompt response.


Sir Michael Wickham.
, Then i checked the Sprint International Courier Website and called up Customer Service, and they confirmed that its a spam., donot forward any interim amount.

Thanks to the lady i spoke to, she saved our life.

Please catch hold of these guys and send them to prison.
