Mrs Caroline Bryne and Dr. Michael Hills, what a team! I think that the poor Doctor and Caroline should take a few lessons in spelling. I am still amazed to see how an “undisclosed-recipients” email address can win some bogus lottery? If they actually chose my email address then why not send the email to my actual address? Then again can’t ask too much from these bottom feeder scammers.
This is just another bogus lotto scam like the ones covered in previous posts.

Eastleigh – SO505AA,

    I got the same scam email from the address above, but different names of doctor. The spelling is wrong as well, but it surely is a scam from 51 Campbell Road, Eastleigh – SO505AA M29 8XJ, UK.

    Just want to post another scam on the web, so no one believe these people.

    Hi guys I’ve also received a UK lotto ( my email was picked as a winner) scam, I guess they’ve changed names, now it’s Liane Johnson, Steve Russell, and an attorney Luis Chamber Santiago, and yes they still really need to work on their spelling!!! The address has also changed: 1 Churchill Palace, London, UK. Beware people, don’t give out any personal info!!!

    I work for tech support in a small cable company and just got off the phone with a customer who had this problem. However it was for Nick Taylor and Alice Nicolas..Also for 51 Campbell Rd. Wonder what would happen if we tried to call these people?🙂

    Meghan,

    I wouldn’t bother spending any money on a phone call. In fact you would only be letting the bottom feeders know that people are responding to their spam.
    Check out this post at Public Service Announcements you may find it of interest.
