The National Lottery Commission -NLC Lottery Scam Email Message
Subject: NLC response (Good news)
Dear Fahd Alosaimi,
I am very happy to announce to you that the National Lottery Commission -NLC- (The government body responsible for all games and promos in the UK) has finally reviewed your request sent to them earlier on and they have replied that they will grant you the approval to be paid even though you are not a British citizen. (Please check the document attached to this e-mail for their official response)
Being that you are outside the United Kingdom and the government office demands the involvement of a legal practitioner to legally complete the process for you, i have made contact with one of the leading legal practitioner, Barrister. Edmund Beever(St. Philips Chambers) to take care of the notarization as required by the NLC.
You will however need to pay a small exemption processing fee(524 Pounds) to the government authority as described in their document. LG Electronics have already covered the fees for the lawyer's services as he(the lawyer) is under legal contract with LG Electronics Ltd, you will only be responsible for the payment as demanded by the government body.
I have already briefed the lawyer everything about your case and i have informed him you will be contacting him soon. See his e-mail address below:
