The National Lottery sent me a letter saying i won 1,343,432 British Pounds, which is equivalent to around $2,300,00 USD. They told me I had won an online lottery that they choose some how by your email address aquired by online advertisements. It just so happens it was the final notice, but I never received a first notice. The next notice said that i was verified. And the man that sent me that notice said he was an FBI Agent (Scott Douglas Steele)and my lottery claim was ready. As long as I followed all protocols.
They told me to claim my lottery prize that I had to go to London.
I told them that i could not because I could not afford it and I do not carry a passport. So the so called FBI Agent sent me a note telling me that he got it ok'ed from the lottery Director for me to receive my documents by mail. And he even sent me a copy of his FBI ID, Badge and a copy of his American International passport as verification of his authenticity and said he could get in trouble for doing so but did not want me to miss out on the opportunity because of skepticism.

..... He told me to contact a Miss Ann Song a lottery representative who would be responsible for sending my documents. She said that I would need to send them $100 USD so that they could insure the documents as it was against policy to deduct it from the winnings of the ticket. On the chance that this could be true ( at this point it was very convincing), I sent the money. The next e-mail correspondence I received had a PDF of the Check made out in my name with all the associated documentation. Then came the whammy. Miss Song then proceeded to ask for another $1300 USD in order to insure the check as she had it expedited to her and I would have to have it cashed in the next 4 days in order to make the deadline.
At this point I proceeded to call her bluff and she reduced the amount to $800 USD saying that she would come up with the rest. I then did a google search on the people and the lottery ( Should have done that first ) and began informing her that I knew what was up at this point. She continued to deny any sort of fraud and pleaded with me to send the money so as not to miss out on the chance of a lifetime. I explained to her that I could not come up with those kinds of funds and requested that, since I would not be needing any documents sent to me as I was unable to comply with the required fees to have the check sent, she could return the previous $100 that I had sent. I have not heard from her since. Please be careful and I hope that this alert will help others. They have gone through a lot to make this convincing, don't be fooled.
