    I was told that I won 1 million Pounds in a blackberry lottery promo in the year 2014 by one Mr. Edwin claiming the money was deposited in their bank for onward transfer to my account in Nigeria but that I should pay the sum of 500 Dollars to facilitate the transfer which I refused to pay.

    Again about a month ago I received another mail from them saying the money has been transferred to U S A to one agent who will contact me for the release of the money on payment of a specified amount this time also I refused to send them any money.

    What I will like to know is. If Blackberry has any type of lottery promo organized and how can somebody know if such promo is real or fake.

    They claim that the Inland Revenue Commission UK is asking for 3000 pounds as taxes before despatch, which they claim is being handled by Greyhound Courier Services with Mrs Davinia Ogsbollox being the despatch Officer.

    Mr Arch Stanton says he is the Cash Officer in charge of Promotions and Sir Allan Conwell being the area coordinator.
