i need the information of the TNT COURIER SERVICE

2006-12-29 11:11:58 -


&n bsp;


This is to inform you that you have been officially
cleared for payment by the Verifications Dept. at the headquarters
of the Free Lottery.
The original copy of this certificate from the British
government stating that the money was obtained legally through their Free Lotto will be sent to you and the bank as soon as you meet with any of the option selected and your winnings will be couriered or transferred to you immediately.
You can now begin the final step of the claims
process, which is the transferring of your cash prize to you in Cheque. With regards to this, there are three options open to you, you are required to select the most convenient of the three.
The options, together with their associated conditions
are presented below:

Courier of your winning draft to you via any of this
channel listed below:

Vat (5%)..............................034.75
TOTAL.................................569.75========$1,074 USD

TNT PREMIUM SERVICE(2working days)
Mailing &n bsp;.......................75.00
Vat (5%)..............................038.95

TNT REGULAR SERVICE(4working days)
Mailing ;.............................60.00
Vat (5%)..............................019.00
TOTAL.................................379.00========$ 715 USD

The insurance company declined reverse payment for the courier, stating that it is against their professional policy towards ensuring the safe delivery of the draft to you. That if a reverse payment is made, and something goes wrong, that we/you cannot sue the courier company or insurance company to recover the full value of the fund as stipulated in the draft since payment for insurance cover was not made at point of mailing.
With the above reason, reverse payment is ruled
out.Forward the cost of mailing your draft with any of the courier channel cost you choose above to us.

Note that your prize is protected by a hardcover
insurance policy by GEOTRUST INSURANCE COMPANY, which makes it impossible for us to deduct any amount from your winnings before it is Remitted to you.
This means that the above charges cannot be deducted from the prize and hence must be provided by you before your prize is transferred to you.

Please respond to this email by making a selection
from the three options above.

Also attach a scanned copy of either your driver's
licence, international passport (photo page) or any other
legally identifying document(Optional).

Also be reminded that the deadline for the claiming of your
winnings is exactly two weeks after the receipt of this email.
After this period, your cash prize will be deemed to have been forfeited by you and will be re-used in the drawings of the next edition of the lottery.

Good luck and Congratulations once again. Please send
your response within the next 24hrs to this same email address.
