This is to Officially inform you that it has come to our notice and we have
thoroughly completed an Investigation with the help of our Intelligence
Monitoring Network System that you legally won the sum of $2.5million USD from a
Lottery Company here in Nigeria. During our investigation we discovered that
your e-mail won the money from an Online Balloting System and we have authorized
this winning to be paid to you via a Certified Cashier's Check.

Normally, it will take up to 10 business days for an International Check to be
cashed by your local bank. We have successfully notified this company on your
behalf that funds are to be drawn from a registered bank within your location so
as to enable you cash the check instantly without any delay.

We have completed this investigation and you are hereby approved to receive the
winning prize as we have verified the entire transaction to be Safe and 100%

Check to your home address).

The total amount for everything is $475.00 (Four Hundred and seventy five
Dollars). We have tried our possible best to indicate that this $475.00USD
should be deducted from your winning prize but we found out that the funds have
already been deposited and cannot be accessed by anyone apart from you the
winner, therefore you will be required to pay the required fee's to the
Agent in-charge of this transaction via Western Union Money Transfer Or Money

In order to proceed with this transaction, you will be required to contact the
