If you don't play the Lottery or Euro Millions and are told
that you have won a large sum of money it is not true.
If you have not purchased a UK Lottery ticket you obviously cannot win. The UK Lottery does not pay out money unless you can produce a winning ticket. The UK Lottery does not know who has won until that person claims on a winning ticket.
This is a World Wide Scam which has been exposed on British Television.
These people are criminals who prey on the naivety and greed of others. They are mainly Nigerians. Some arrests have been made but not nearly enough. Please report them to your local Police. The more people that report these criminals to the Police the more action will be taken.
They even sometimes use my name and my companies name.
They are very persistent and persuasive. They will try and make friends with you. Millions of people have been emailed and tens of thousands of victims have lost money. The next thing they will ask for is money for the bogus Courier so that they can release the funds.
There is no Courier. There are no funds.
Do not reply to them. Do not phone them. Do not give them money. Do not go near them.
The UK Lottery only pays out on a valid ticket which you must have purchased in the UK, or on a legal site such as www.uknationallottery.com which is a site for overseas players. You can visit www.met.police.uk/fraudalert/section/lotto_fraud.htm for more details or contact them at:
