    Do not give any details what so ever to these criminal networks , they will try to gain your trust into convincingly scaming you out of your own money...you will always get asked to send shipping costs that are to establish the winnings to your account...account yes if youve already givin them your details you could be zero dollars before you know it. Dont be a sucker .
