    I got a similar one, again not addressed directly to me, supposedly from the National Drilling Company (though the email address it came from was completely different). Different names, but a number of spelling checker errors (different similar word not spotted by the scammer, so presumably English not their first language). Same return address of representative.com (with a different name).

    I love the way the signature is signed in big fat felt pen, just like a child would do...

    I rarely get spam these days as Google is so good at filtering. This one slipped through the net as there's no text in the email, just two .jpg images.

    WHEE! How lucky am I? I just today received one of these emails. Must say, they did better than most. They have the MAERSK OIL Logo correct.

    By quick glance, there are no glaring spelling errors, however, some of the syntax was strange.

    ....and really, why would you have ".......in fight against European Migrant Crisis awareness and support"? (Are you/they against European Migrants or against the plight of migrants in Europe?)

    It has 1 Qatar address/ 1 Johannesburg S.Africa address.

    Better luck next time scammers. Too bad, I could have used the money.

    May God be praised. I don't go easily into this kind of things. When I saw mail in my inbox, I quickly googled the address and that's how I came to this site. My advice is that one should not be easily fascinated by this kinds of promises. Hard work pays my dear ones. All that glitters are not gold.

    • March 24, 2017 at 5:41 PM by info

      If you have sent your money using your credit card, contact your bank and have them cancel the transaction and refund your money. If you used money transfer services like Western Union or MoneyGram, it is virtually impossible to get back your money.

    Exactly same type of mail I got early in this month, but didn't send any information about myself, because I am very much concerned about it, what it is and how I got this lottery.

    Now I need to know who sent this mail for what purpose and how they work on it; and how they achieve their goal using this fake offer.

    • March 24, 2017 at 4:53 PM by info

      The email is being sent by lottery scammers. The aim of the lottery scammers is to trick the recipients of the email into sending them money in order to receive their so-called prizes or winnings. The lottery scammers will claim the money is for taxes and fees, but once the money is sent, the lottery scammers will disappear with the money, and the victims will not receive the lottery prize they were promised or claim to have won.
