    • Shell Petroleum Lottery Inc. Complaint / User Submitted Image #172841

I received a text message on my mobile phone telling me I had won One Million Dollars in the UK Petroleum Draw. I emailed them back to ask what the next step was (knowing it was a scam). They responded yesterday(nearly 1 month later) and they asked for my details e.g. Date, full name, reference number, winning cellphone no, home or office address, country, business name, phone and fax number, age, sex & occupation. Then they stated that for security reasons I should not disclose any of my winning information to anyone for now pending when my prize money will be paid to me in full to avoid any unscrupulous activities. They also said I had to strictly adhere to these instruction because someone else may claim my prize.
