SOURCE: dear sir, I am sheshadri from bangalore i


Please delete all such kind of mails as soon as you receive them as they are just SPAM mails and there is nothing like these money amounts in reality. Also these mails might land up bringing viruses as soon as opened.

If my solution helped kindly recommend my work on Fixya.

Hope it helps !

Got Certified Award Letter in mail stating I won above amt. Need to send $12.99

Sounds like a scam, smells like a scam. Regular mail or email? If email definitely a scam. Did you have to sign for the letter? What was the amount you supposedly won? If it runs to millions of dollars definitely a scam. Can you give me a name of the company or the full name of the person who signed the letter please. Post as a COMMENT to this post.

I Mr.R.Sudhakar Reddy working as Slaried Employee in the Private Ltd Organisation. Recently i have received a mail from Chvelote Bingo Promotions from U.K (London). That u have Won prize for an amount of...

Hi! Mr. R. Sudharkar Reddy, I am really sorry to hear your news. In fact, you are one of the victims of the Nigeria Connection. Many have been caught and were accused and still there are thousands of their combats still active worldwide. Now they are in prison. But I didn't get my money back. In the same way, you'll not be able to.. This people are playing around and fooling people to extract money by writing impossible things and sending unlimited mails to people after stealing informations from the net or from search engines. They will change their Phone number or email address right after you are tricked and after they got money from you. Since you don't know them physically, you can do nothing and I can do nothing. But there's a chance that Police can help, but I am not sure since police are police and they never care much about this and that (so I hate police and never care about them either).

These are their business, they are available worldwide and their network is so strong that no one has ever busted fully.

Yes, the same mails that you had mentioned here, I too received several times, but i never care about the I use to reply them "Keep it for yourself and enjoy your life... I don't like blood stained money" with red texts.
You can also imagine, how can you win if you don't play the game or lottery or etc.. etc... whatver..? That's not acceptable. They bring up all the methods to sue people and trap them to their net to extract money posing as a company or this and that blah.. blah..
First check their email address, if it's a big company, almost all companies big/small has/have websites and the email address is not just like (Reference only). etc.. etc.. but should be something like this.. (Reference only).
Moreover, mails from companies are html or web based, but mails related scammers/spams/fraudsters etc.. are simple text with pasted or attached pictures (sometimes pictures are hyperlinked to false sites).

There are many more things to tell about them, but it's not important, and there are also many email address to report spams/scams/frauds etc.. but I never get5 reply from them so I just keep deleting the mails and ignoring them by marking them as Spam.

I don't know how to deal with this, but you can consult with your local police, perhaps they may be helpful if they are keen to find out the rascals. I wish you good luck and please spread this to your friends and others.

Don't ever give your personal informations to those emails, you'll loose if your email is related to your financial transaction, etc.. etc..
Let me wind up here, it'll take a day to write down everything here.. You can also do a google search with the subject line of the email you received. Many results will be found on the google search.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Connection to yahoo mail and google mail

You might get in trouble with your company for bypassing their proxy but there are a few sites you can try:

Keep in mind however that if your office's proxy uses a White List as opposed to a Black List, it may not do you any good. A Black List blocks only certain websites, whereas a White List blocks all but certain websites.
