    Hello There

    I received the same emails from A Mr Newton.

    He went so far to even send me certificates reflecting my winning certificate and even a approval certificate from HMS Treasury Department.

    They go out of their way to con people.

    They first requested payment of 300 pounds and when I said I don't have money they reduced it by 40%.

    Please don't be gullible.

    Can't these thugs be apprehended?
