My name only appears on the envelope and nowhere inside.
I read the letter and contact Mr Simon lucas. He answer my phone. I faxed to him all the information that he attached in the letter. I did not reply this is just a scams. I have sent him total 1680 dollars to the name Kenneth Mororan, the address AVD DE SAM MORALES No 25 BLK 7D CP 28006 Madrid Spain,for the authorization to claim the prize.
Next day the guy from the bank call me to wire 8203 dollars for the wiring money to my account at US. I told I don't have such huge money. He called mr Simon lucas and explain to him about that payment. I asked him if the bank can take out the fee from my winning prize money. He told me no one can not do it, and told me to call back later. I called him back then he said i can make only half of 8203 dollars. The other half I can make later. I am so lucky that I found this web site. If not I have lost another 4100 dollars.
That is my story, I don't know if anyone can know how to stop this company from rip off another victim. I am very please to cooperate to any law enforment to bring down this company.
