TNT COURIER SERVICE IS A SCAM Internet
Hi my name is Tim, I want to report TNT COURIER SERVICES from the UK. I was first sent an email stating that I won six million dollars.

TNT Courier Service Scammers try to Fool you into Sending them Money!!! Lekki Nigeria
I received an e-mail stating that I had a bank draft of $780,000 that was being givin to me from Chevron gas & oil company. Al that I needed to do was send them $250 for the delivery. I e-mailed them back and asked who they were looking for. They e-mailed me again with my husbands name. Then I remembered our names pop up on our sent e-mails. I then e-mailed them back again telling them that the name they had is only a name we use on on our e-mail account and if they knew the full name again. To say the least they never e-mailed me back. I then researched the TNT Courier Service online to see if they even existed. There was one site that was a Courier service. But I then read several sites about TNT being a scam. Thats when I found this website and decided to post my story. I think this site is awesome and really helps people to be aware of the possible dangers and to not be mislead by people.

TNT COURIER TNT Courier Lottery Scam Liverpool United Kingdom Internet
I've received an email from a Catherine Nola stating that I'm the winner of a lottery of 4,000,000.00 sterlings (which I never entered for) and that I needed to respond to her email for verification purposes. After doing so, she sent me another email stating that I needed to email a Mr. Mark Moore (Chief Courier Director) with TNT Courier Company and gave me his email address. After I did that, he replied by emailing me a questionnaire asking for my name, age, sex, marrital status, occupation, address, phone number and banking info. I gave all info except for my occupation, phone number and banking information and stated that if I was a winner of a lottery, they could just mail me a check. He then sent me another email including a list of different prices for different mailing options. I replied by telling him that I would pay by C.O.D., but I certainly would not just send him a check before hand. These people are ruthless scam artists and I sincerely hope that noone has been foolish enough to actually send them money. I knew it was a scam from the first email and was curious as to how far he would keep replying to my questions. I emailed him asking for his phone number. I haven't had a response yet, and probably won't. I've also reported this to Hoaxbusters. Sincerely, Beverly Pottsboro, TexasU.S.A.
