I won £1,500,000.00

I was cleaning up my e-mails a couple of weeks ago when I came across two letters which I believe to be from our beloved friends the Nigerians. I decided to follow up on my winnings which I won in 2010.  I called  the number on the letter and to my delight there where still holding on to prize for me (such sweethearts). Basically all I had to do was  open a new premium account or send them money so they could pay for transferring funds. I reasoned that since i had already won one and a half million pounds they could just take it out of my winnings. Unfortunately because of legal issues it was against bank policy to touch any of my funds.  I told them I would get back to them hence the third letter when they didn’t hear back from me . Since I could not decided for myself  I decided to upload the letters. Tell me what you think should I open the account or pay for the transfer ( which one is cheaper for my money to be forwarded to me safely).  Help!!      READ LETTERS BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION

  1. Wow, it is sad to think of the people who haven fallen victim to attempts like that..

    I like their attempt in the 3rd letter to make it sound legit..

    “Would you prefer to come down to our office here in the united kingdom to sign some documents for the release of your winnings?”

  2. Whats obvious to you is not always so obvios to everyone else. This conman actually make money because there are people out there who are gullible enough to believe them
