This all happened on that unlucky day when i received an email saying that i won 50,000$ in a draw of internet users conducted for increasing the use of internet. I was very new to internet and my stupidness that i believed those bastads. I called them as they have written to claim my prize, then their demands started they asked for 600$ for the processing of funds. I am just a student and at that time i was just 18years old so obviously i was not earning and my father dont have any knowledge about internet. I told him everything then he refused to believe but i was mad that i insisted him to send that $600. With a lot of difficulty he agreed and we sent it through wire transfer. And then you know what happened? There was no response from them , phone was switched off. Then i understood everything but it was too late. 600 dollars were not less for me as i have to give about 30,000 indian rupees. That was the worst thing that can happen with anyone and i am myself responsible for all this. I dont found any place to complaint about it, do you know any? I just want to make you aware of such frauds so that you will not face what i am facing today.

I am lucky that I have not paid any amount for the smugler if I paid I will be in same trouble.

Yeah, you are realy lucky. I remember that when i was trying to send money all bank refused to do so but i was crazy . Finaly, i found a newly opened bank in my area ,which for their promotion did so. At that time i thought its my luck but actualy they ruined my hope.

Yes, but i have already made all the bloody mistakes by believing them. So i expect others not to trust them at all. They are online bandits as you said so i think there should be strict laws to deal with them. Happy mylotting!

if you didn't join anything then you can't possibly win right? be careful and skeptical about the things you see on the net. it's very easy to hid identities online.

Yeah, but before 3 years it was totaly new to me. I havent even thought that how can i win for a lottery for which i never bought a ticket. I will just suggest you that never give a single penny to anyone and keep your bank and credit card details safe.
