    I have become victim of the same message on my cell phone with the same cash price as well as the S7 Galxy phone of which I HAVE learned that model is already two years old.

    Also E Ford appears on the e-mail from them and a Consultant locally with that persons ID Book copy ID number 650228 5032 08 8. his name is Gary Piet Howard who is SA citizen.

    All goes via a company AMFirst in London and local courier company. Nothing has arrived yet but I have been asked to pay an Amount of R 1550.- for airport and costumes Clearance.

    They ask now for an extra 1% COT of the 265000 rand from my Bank account or cash so that BITVEST Bank how are transferring the amount.

    Would you say this is a scam? Then I will discontinue further communication with them and delete everything I have so far from them. Thank you.

    I received an email stating I had won a Samsung Galaxy S7 plus one million euros. I was to contact diamond couriers in the UK and was strongly advised not to tell anyone, not even my relatives, about this until the processing of my winnings had taken place. Apparently there is a company called Diamond Couriers in the UK. But thank you for warning users of this scam. It was very professionally done.

    "Well done!Your email address was selected!

      You are OK. Just flag the email message as spam so others like it go to your spam/junk folder.
