National Lottery Commission (NLC) Scam

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:

    Yes it's scam. I also got the same and such messages and they asked me to pay £524 to get £850000.

    But I didn't get them other messages because I didn't call the titles they gave me.

    "We have received your document and posted your signed appeal letter to the office of the National Lottery Commission(NLC) for processing and for them to grant approval.

    Once we receive any word from them, I will immediately let you know their response. Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope they approve the request.

    Once approval is granted, your winnings will then be authorized for immediate payment. At which time I will also let you know how to proceed for wiring your 850,000 GBP to your designated bank account.

    Do have a wonderful day. Expect my email as soon as I have any updates from the government office. Ensure to call my office any time on 44 134 457 6277(ext 477) for questions and inquiries regarding your winnings.

    Hi, I have received Facebook messages from a woman named Kelly M Wallman, she has been telling me numerous of times that she is real and that I have won a lump some of 600,000 dollars. Please do me the honour of taking down this woman and whoever else she is doing this too. I have heard from a friend of mine I am not the only one she is doing this too. Thank you.
