Dear Winner,

The first batch of results in the ongoing Apple Inc. Mobile
Promotional Sweepstakes is out. Congratulations! Your mobile phone
number came out as one of the lucky winning numbers for the
promotional Award. This entitles you to instant prize money of
£900,000 GBP.

No play coupons or promotional tickets were sold. Mobile phone numbers
were taken from databases of major telecommunication companies
worldwide and entered in for the draws. The draws for international
mobile phone users under your geographical region are grouped under
category "B”.

This promotion is being sponsored by Apple Inc. to celebrate the life
and legacies of the late Apple C.E.O- Steve Jobs. The promotion is
geared towards promoting the Apple brand and saying a big thank you to
all users of the brand worldwide.

A payment file has been opened for you and a set of reference and
batch numbers have been assigned to you. Please find below the
numbers:

Reference Number: IPQ2/11/09/34

In line with the policies of the Apple Inc. Promotional Sweepstakes
and the remittance procedures, you have two options to complete your
prize money redemption.

OPTION (A): You are officially requested to visit our office in West
London, United Kingdom within 7 days for physical identification and
signing of the original copies of the Prize Release Authorization
forms for immediate release of your prize money to you. You are
advised to come with the following requirements: -

a) Valid proof of identification, ID or driving license.
b) Copy of your recent phone billing receipt.


Upon arrival you will be required to procure an affidavit of claim
from a UK High Court or a notary. This must be duly signed and thumb
printed by you. This goes to legalize your winnings. Please be
informed that your trip to the UK and other expenses is solely your
responsibility.

OPTION (B): This is for winners who are unable to make a trip to our
office. Such winners are presented with the option of contacting our
accredited attorney here in the UK who will take you through the
legalization process on your behalf and his retainer fee can be
negotiated.

The Apple Inc. Promotional Sweepstakes put in place this procedure for
all international winners because we are almost certain physical
presence at our office will be an issue. The attorney- Mr. GEOFF
HUTCHINSON OF HUTCHINSON SOLICITORS have to be contacted as soon as
you receive this email so that he can furnish you with the
legalization process. After the legalization process, the paying
financial institution will be remitting your prize money to you.

attorney with these info:

1. Full Names.
2. Delivery Address
3. Your winning Mobile Number (for confirmation and final verification)
4. Occupation.
5. Date of Birth
6.Email Address
7.A copy of your identity (Passport/driver’s license)

you mentioned above and copy me with the email.

A claim file will immediately be opened for you after the receipt of
your information. Thereafter, your claims will be processed, verified,
legalized and funds approved for payout by the Sweepstakes Corporation
Payment Service (S.C.P.S). Your winnings fall under the United Kingdom
processing center. As an international winner, an accredited attorney
will be handling the legalization and processing of your winnings on
your behalf. For security reasons, you are advised to keep your
winning information confidential till your claims is processed and
your money remitted to you. This is part of our efforts to curb double
claiming and impersonating.
