Euro Millions Scam

Dear Customer Service:

An inquiry has been made:

Date : 4/27/2006 9:34:46 AM

Lottery : Euro Millions

To whoever it may concern,

Just recently i was contacted my email saying i had won a mega jack pot prize of 870,812.79 euros through the Euro Millions Lottery on the 30th of December2005. The information they sent me from the claim agent Mrs veronica pozas ,who said she works under your lottery company as trust claim agent.

This is the information they sent me Ref No:Ef/04679/SA, the winning numbers: 8-16-19-43-45-1-4 which i have looked up, are correct, email ticket number:754/22/76. I have had several emails from different people at the confirming my win. They have informed me the rules of the euro millions lottery is if I cant come to pick the money up that a attorney from your legal department will release and sign the documents but I have to pay 655.00 before i receive my money prize. I am not at all sure if this is true but they declare this is true.

I have read your lottery rules and they don’t match theirs so is this a scam. I am not at all in a position to fly to pick up prize or even pay legal fees to claim my prize. Please sort this out as I am taking legal action as you don’t send people false information. Their fax no is 0034-940-468-530
