Test Question: Do Not Use!

Important: Once you have made the payment you must validate it by e-mailing us the MTCN/Ref number on the Western Union receipt. Also provide the sender's name and the sender's address for confirmation. Until then, your payment will be null and not valid. You will be faxed or emailed payment receipts after validation (for your records).

Make sure to get all payment details above correctly spelled out on the Western Union form and receipt as you proceed. Any mistake from your end, must be rectified and will cause a delay in the pay out process.

E-mail paymentprocessing7@gmail.com with any questions you may have or if you need clarification/assistance.

Under normal circumstances you are not supposed to make a payment for a lottery you won but due to the fact that this lottery is an international lottery from the United Kingdom, there is a no tax policy on the funds, which means the processing fee cannot be deducted from your winnings. Our headquarters will reimburse you fully for this fee.

Because you won this lottery from an online balloting system, your claim will expire after 10 days, starting from today. Be sure you act accordingly before this expiry date.

Best Regards,

*Be sure to have read this email in detail and act accordingly, email your claims manager if you have questions*

*CONGRATULATIONS ONCE AGAIN*

CC: Federal Trade Commission
The email was sent from the email address "paymentprocessing7@gmail.com", with the subject "Congratulations".

The email is a classic example of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam with promises of a large sum of money being transferred to the victim. Anyone responding to it will be told that there is a fee/tax/insurance payment to be paid to receive the money. This will be followed by payment after payment until the victim runs out of money or realises that they are being scammed.
