On 10/27/2011 I received a winning notification letter saying i had won 4,800,000.00 US dollars. The letter told me to contact David Grant at 011-44-779-610-4211 or email him at dvidgrant@gmail.com. I was faxed a form getting just basic information from me, and no fees were discussed. I was given a choice of going to England, having the money transmitted to my bank account, or having the cashiers check. I chose to have it transmtted to my bank account. On Friday 10/28/2011 I got a call from the bank, Gemini Consult, and was told by Mary Yise that I needed to send 1000.00, so that I could open a non-resident account to temporarily put the money into. I told her I didn't have the money, so I was told to call David Grant back. I did call him back, and he said the mail option was 687 USD dollars. I told him I had 100 USD. I pleaded my case, but he said he wanted at least 350 USD. He finally accepted 185 USD, and then there was the 22 USD Western Union fee. So I did send the money to a Mary Heap.
The money was accepted and David Grant told me between 12 noon and 6:00 pm the check would arrive to my doorstep,including instructions on how to pay 5% of the prize money back to UK Bonds and creditors who bought the ticket. On Monday 10/31/2011 I got a call from William Taylor at Global Security and Trust Company, and I was told I needed a money laundering certificate. I was then referred back to David Grant. I researched the Australia International Lottery Prize Release Prize Centre and money laundering, and now was positive this was a scam. On this morning 11/1/2011 I was called and emailed by David Grant that the money laundering certificate would cost 1200 USD, and he would pay 400 USD. I was baffled, and said I would get back to him.
