Yes this is the e-mail i had received that i have won 750,000 great Britain pounds i was shocked to see this the reason was that since i have maintained online activity i have won in sweepstakes then they had stated that i should bear the delivery charges which is some 160-300 pounds now this made me suspicious about it the source which they are using in the e-mail is very reputed companies hmmmmm who will believe this of course not do you get stupid e-mails like this i guess they don't have better job other than cheating people

Hi ashvini, yes I receive that kind of email every day, and I'm so tired of it, but luckily my account has a very good spam filter and I only receive those kind of email in the spam section.. but I think that the people sending those mails are unaware that their computers are infected with some kind of virus or trojan that is sending email as spam.. that's what I think..

ashvini do not respond to these people. they are scamsters. they just want that 300 pounds from you and then they disappear. i too had received such mails. they have some contacts in each country and once money is transfered to that particular account you will not hear anything from them. best is to ignore these mails and delete it.

It was a biggest scam in the internet. I do get these mails but not much. When I used the internet for the first time, I had visited their sites and I had given my name and email address. At that moment I will get atleast 10 mails from them. After sometime, I had changed my email service provider and now not much. Your PC could be a cash machine. Look at my profile to know how.

ashvini_urs, hello. Yes, for about 2 years, I received these regularly. When I received the very first one, I went to the website of British Lotto to see if my name was in print as a winner. I was puzzled, because it wasn't there. So I went to the Help section, where I saw a message : "If you have not entered the Sweepstakes and do not hold a ticket number, then you cannot have win any money." And of course, I hadn't entered. It's amazing but these people think that we are dumb - of course we would check. But the emails still came, one after another. I do feel very sorry for anyone who was taken in and who actually paid for the delivery charges. I guess some people didn't do any checking, because the emails wouldn't be so persistent if they didn't work for the cheats. Well, you and I used our brains, didn't we?

hahaha. i got that e-mail too from mr. smith. well, i ignore such e-mails when it concerns winning or transferring tremendous amount of money. especially when they ask for personal information. are there still people who hadn't get the idea of fraud? bad for them.

Hey man great. Can you share some of that with me. hahaha. I posted a similar discussion here last week when I received a mail stating that a person wants to share some fraudulent money with me. I missed the opportunity, so would like to have some of your fortune.
