    DEAR GOOGLER (WINNER),
    13[SUP]TH[/SUP] ANNIVERSARY PROMOTIONs.
    I'm pleased to inform you that your email address has been checked and it falls among our ten (10) lucky winning email addresses for this year promo draw. On behalf of all team, I'm happy to inform you that you actually emerged a winner of £500,000.00 GBP (Five hundred thousand Great British Pounds) under Category (A), which is part of our 13[SUP]th[/SUP] Anniversary promotional draws. No purchase of Tickets were required for this draw, all Participants (email addresses) for this draws were randomly picked from a worldwide range of Gmail users, web searchers (our Google Search Engine users) and other Google ancillary services through a computer ballot system and this was how your email was picked. This promo is organized by Google UK Organization to mark her 12th year of existence in the UK which also aimed to say "Thank you" to our numerous customers/users of our search engine and other ancillary services who have in one way or the other made us what we are today.
    OPTIONS OF CLAIM (MODALITIES):
    1 - Personal prize Pickup:
    All winners are required to come down in person to personally pickup their prize at any of our disbursement locations (cash pickup centers) here in LONDON.
    Requirements for personal prize pickup are:
    (a) A printed copy of your Winning Notification (the first mail you received from us)
    (b) An International Passport or Drivers license
    (c) A tax clearance certification.
    (d) Birth Certificate or Affidavit of age Declaration
    (e) Police report attesting your patriotism and crime free citizen of your Country (Note: You are only required to present the above documents only when visiting us in person)
    NOTE: Claim deadline for this option is exactly 30 working days from the receipt of this mail.

    In receipt of these requirements your cash will be made available to you after 24hrs. This option is basically for winners who can easily visit us in person with the above stated pickup requirements. Scan copy of your Flight Ticket should be forwarded to us one week before your flight to UK to enable us assign delegates who would welcome you at the airport
    [​IMG]Inability to meet up with this stipulated date either due to none availability of some claims documents above, none availability of travel documents etc. may result to loss of winnings as funds will be re-used for other upcoming draws. This option is recommended by the Google lotto management to clear doubts and unnecessary thinking as regard this Promo. This is because we have had series of complaints from individuals that people are using our company name for various forms of indecent acts. Thus, as part of verification/confirmation; our 10 lucky winners are advised to come and pickup their reward in person from our disbursement centre here in UK.

    2- On-line Swift Telegraphic Bank Transfer:
    Your £ 500,000.00 GBP which you have won will be transfer to your bank account via swift bank transfer. Condition: You shall be responsible for the international transfer commission what will be charged by our paying Bank since no tickets were sold for the promotion. This option is basically design for winners who are not resident of UK and winners who cannot visit our payment office in London.

    Well, they are 200% fake. Once you contact them they ask you to send them few thousand dollars as handling charges or what so ever reason. Any body send them money will never be contacted again.

    Be aware, donot even respond them as once you respond any of them you will then receive 100s of such mail as they will get know that you are geniune person interested in such offers.
