I've Won The Lottery!

February 12, 2010 1:30 AM

I can't believe my luck! What a way to start the New Year! I hope it's not some kind of scam.

David Ray
I was quite surprised to win as I didn't know I had a ticket for the United States Lottery, but it turns out I did AND I won $350,000!

They told me in an email, which read as follows:

You mentioned a postal fee of $120? Is that British or American dollars? How would I pay that and is there any other cheaper options such as a bank transfer of the winnings?

Hi David,

Thanks for your email, I was just speaking to one of your representatives over the phone (he called me), he seemed a little bit rude and ended the call while I was trying to ask a question - can you please check that it was someone from your oganisation who called me as it seemed a bit odd?

I needed to check whether the $120 was British or US dollars - as I live in the UK but this is the US lottery. If you can clear up this detail then I can make the payment on the way home from work today.

As the delivery will take 1 (one) day, would it be possible to get the delivery address changed to my work address as I won't be home much over the next couple of days.

Thanks,
Craig

Hi there,

It's me again, Craig (Slim)... the good news is (well the good news is I won the lottery!!) but also, I managed to make it in to my local branch of Money Gram on my way home from work yesterday,

I thought you were going to phone to obtain the required details from me last night so I waited by my phone for most of the evening but I failed to receive your call which is sad.

But any way, I have made the payment of £120 (UK) and have all the confirmation details for you when you are ready to take them.

Thanks again for all your help with this,
Craig (Slim)

Hi Mr Rogers,

I'm owl so sorry about Jane and Martin, I think they may have taken my phone and replaced it with a "dummy phone" which I was unaware of - how annoying!! I'm sorry if this has slowed things down.

I'm very sorry for any incongrulance this may have caused and I hope it has affected the time in which I can claim my prize winning funds.

I have only just read your email (and I am now in work) so I don't (have) the Money Gram document with me but I will head home at lunch and bring them back to work with me, I will then scan them using our RICOH Africo MP C4500 PCL 5c prints/copier/scanner that we have here in the office and I will then at the highest speed our highspeed dedicated internet pipeline allows, email them direct to your inbox ([email protected]).

Thanks,
Craig

Hi Ray,

I'm really sorry but I find your emails really difficult to read as you have used no punctuation and it's all written in capital letters.

If possible, could you re-write your previous email using proper punctuation and grammar so I can fully understand what you mean.

Thanks,
Craig

God bless you and Jesus rest in peace,
I love you,

I'm sorry for getting angry, I am crying at the moment, this is all very upsetting for me (Craig).

I don't have much money and I had to use my savings to pay the £120 and now you are saying you haven't got the money and B&Q are telling me I haven't paid there!

I don't know what to do, I will try to borrow some more money and make another payment, should I try Western Onion instead?

Love,
Craig

David Ray

55deb25563888_1440658005_size.jpg

Yes go ahead and make the payment true western union and get back to us i pray you are not playing with us so you go there and remit the payment and get back to us immedately,

Higgypop

I also pray back to you in reverse that you are not playing me and my poor starving family.

Dear Sir/Madam/Other,

My name is Craig Slim, I seem to have several emails from you in my inbox. I have been in hospital for the last two weeks so I am surprised to see that you have been in contacted with me.

It looks like, while I have been away my brother Dominic has been sending emails from my email account.

I am really sorry if he has caused you any problems? I hope he hasn't wasted too much of your time.

Best wishes,
Craig Slim

P.S. What is this about a lottery win?? I should be so lucky!

David Ray

55deb25563888_1440658005_size.jpg

As soon as you are coming back from work you make the payment true western union and scan to us with the payment information

Higgypop

55deb25739cdb_1440658007_size.jpg

Hello Sir,

Sorry, what payment is required? As I said, I've been in hospital and it looks like my brother has been using my email account and pretending to be me.

Has he caused some kind of trouble? What costs has he incurred?

Craig

David Ray

55deb25563888_1440658005_size.jpg

I got your mail and was quite upset with nature,with the way you wrote it seems that you are about to loose your chance of ever becoming a rich person,this is a fund that could change your entire family life and your immediate friends life ^I would like you to be of good courage^ in line with the scriptures mind you that the Bible says and I quote ^it is not of him that runeth nor willeth but of God that showeth mercy^ that is what I am talking about here this is a great chance that God has created for you, so you should not ever think about letting it go.

Remeber that the forces of nature would certainly fight against you when you are about to make progress in life so I advice you to look at it very closely so that your crown would not be talking away.Remeber that the Bible says and I quote ^God giveth us power to make wealth^ this is a life opportunity my Fellow Brother so act in line with the right terms and be blessed according to the riches of our heavenly Father think about it and get back to me if possible remain bless.

So you have to be fast about it today.


I will advice you to go and look for money today so that your cheque can leave to your door step.

I await for your urgent reply today.

Yours in Service,
Mr.David Ray

David,

Obviously I do need the prize money, who wouldn't? But I do need to look in to this further and ensure that this is a valid offer. For all I know you might be some filthy, un-holy, Nigerian fraudster (they're always Nigerian aren't they! haha!).

I promise I will look in to this as soon as I get home this evening, if all is fine then it will be no problem transfering the money to you as soon as possible.

Craig

David Ray

55deb25563888_1440658005_size.jpg

Ok i will be waiting to to get your email immedately today.

Higgypop

55deb25739cdb_1440658007_size.jpg

David,
Thanks for your ambivalence.
Craig

Higgypop

55deb25739cdb_1440658007_size.jpg

Hi David,

I'm slightly concerned as it seems that despite working for the US lottery, you've been calling my phone from the phone number +234 ...a Nigerian number, which does make me worry that you are an un-Godly, cheating, lying fraudster?

I hope this isn't the case!!

As a way of ensuring you are genuine could you please just proof your identity at the following webpage... [link back to THIS webpage]

Thanks very much.
Craig
