They emailed me stating I had won a million dollars and to email Elite Courier Company.
There is such a company in the UK, I investigated because if I had won I would not be having the funds or check sent to me via the UK!
Needless to say I did not send them any money. Below are the emails I received:
I received the letter below thinking I had won! But of course I had not. I did as it said and I received the following email below email #1.
I was not aware that you use a courier service from the UK but it did look correct with the letterhead and so on....
Thank you ,
