Fake Lottery winning: Correspondance of scammer with victim for courier fees

Here is a series of emails sent to us by a prospective victim. Her name is withheld for privacy reasons.You can see that the method in this case is charging courier fees upfront. In other cases, it is account opening fees, government fees, bribes, ...etc., but it is all the same: upfront money for a prize that does not exist.

Here are the e-mail's sent to me and responses from me:----------------------------------------------------------------This is public limited Organisation of is own with license of registration like yours.So we have the right to transact business to any part of the world.The Governemt have given us a go ahead to carryout our business.

about their winning and also sharing their pin numbers. As a result of this,
these friends try to claim the lottery on behalf of the real winners. The
Microsoft Lottery Corporation has reached a decision from headquarters that
any double claim discovered by the Lottery Board will result to the canceling
of that particular winning, making a loss for both the double claimer and the
real winner, as it is taken that the real winner was the informer to the
double claimer about the lottery. So you are hereby strongly advised once more
to keep your winnings strictly confidential until you claim your prize.

Congratulations

Mr. Hearly Greg.
