This an e-mail that should be taken lightly. I contacted my States Attonery's office here in Illionis and they say it isn't a legitamate company nor an existing on at that. I just want to thank ripoffreport.com for being there for those unsuspecting consumers out there. I too am so tired of these "ripoff artists" getting away with others hard earned money. This e-mail to me goes as follows:

Now my question is why in the world do they need to know your Nationality? Your occupation? Your gender? or any of the listed above for verification for that matter. Um....Yeah it's obvious, it's a scam. Just to let you know it hasn't been the first one of this that I received, in fact it is my third e-mail that I recieved from the same "Camelot company". Oh Yeah, if you happen to get these, you will notice it's a different person, e-mail address, and funny phone numbers. Mrs. Dianne Thompson and the so called "physical" addresses you see, remain to be the same everytime. Do not believe the hype this e-mail and the people in it are telling you! I have never entered in an oversea lottery. I won't be scammed.
