Yesterday a friend of mine recieved a e-mail saying she has won £1.000.000 and unfortunately she belived every word they said.
She answered this e-amil and then she sent a copy of her passport for identification.
Once I heard about it I told her this is a lie, and that she never should give them her bank account number and that she will never recive this money.
And she havn't answered to any other mail after that and they don't have her bank account number.
But as I wrote before she has given them a copy of her passport.
What can happen to her?
Are they able to steel her identity by using this or do they need something more for doing that?
In that case, is there anyting she (or I) can do?
It was Powerball Lotto in the UK, who sent the e-mail to her.
Both my friend and I would be happy for an answer.

10/04/06 I also received a letter from OGLC saying I won $250,000. Enclosed was a check for $4975.00 to help pay the taxes on it. What an evil scam. I alerted the police and postmaster

received a letter from barclay lotto with a check, told to cash the check and send them so much back for taxes and such via western union and then they would issue me my winnings for 50,000.00 sounds too good to be true, anybody else heard from this company. cashiers check was from county federal credit union.


2006-10-04 11:48:28 -
just received a letter and a check from barclay lotto prize, inc. asking that i cash the check for $ 2900.00 and then in return sent them a check for 2700.00 via western union and then they will send me a check for 50,000.00. sounds like a scam to me, anybody out there received the same. thanks


2006-10-04 10:12:39 -
i was taken advantage of over 3,000 dollar. The check that was sent to me to pay the taxes was fraudulant from a company in Georgia. The check stayed in the bank for 5 days and was cleared and then that amount was taken from my checking account.......i hope they are stopped before any other person is taken advantage of..

I got this email, and what confused me is they don't ask for bank details, and The address is wrong.

Kruslann 205, 1098 sj

I am a correctional officer who deals with criminals very day and this week I apparently am dealing with a criminal I cannot get my hands on(lucky for them).
I apparently have won over 2 million euris fro TH IRISH LOTTERY. I ven mentioned tha I have worked on internet scam artists before and that I was skeptical. True to form Dr.Felix Parker re-staes that this is a legitimate winning prize and ": congratulations to me " I did make a mistake and give them my info but no monies have changed hands and I hope I have contacted the right people. It is amazing how stupid I feel, how much worse could it have gotten

PLEASE PEOPLE..get wise..do not get greedy! It is this mode of thought that gets one into trouble! IF ANY SO CALLED LOTTERY you won, whether money or a car..if they ASK YOU TO SEND MONEY, ask for your credit card number, your phone number, your bank account information..DELETE AND RUN FROM YOUR COMPUTER..do not send cash..do not give out your personal information! REMEMBER..you do NOT GET something for nothing! SO PLEASE BE AWARE AND CAUTIOUS! IF YOU ENTERED a contest on line and you win..then it should cost YOU NOTHING to receive this prize! believe me...it should just arrive with no cost to you of any kind! ALSO be wary of these guys who 'fall' in love with you online too..THEY ARE SCAM ARTISTS and if they ask for money to come and see you..or they are sick or whatever the reason..DELETE THEM FROM YOUR SYSTEM AND RUN..they will bleed you dry of your hard earned cash!!! I hope all this info helps! ;-)
