As the federal agency in charge of international activities and interests protecting the United States, we are officially informing you that it has come to our notice and we have thoroughly completed an Investigation with the help of the Federal Bureau of Investigations Intelligence Monitoring Network System that you legally won the sum of $1,000,000.00 US Dollars from the U.K. Mega Millions Lottery draw held on Friday through an online balloting system. During our investigation it was discovered that tickets are assigned to email marketing lists donated from marketing companies here in the United States and around the world on behalf of all email account holders that are currently subscribed to newsletters and advertisements. Therefore your email address won you the Lottery from the online balloting system. The issue was brought before the board and we authorized this winning to be authentic and to be transferred to you electronically. Typically, it will take up to 20 business days for an international transfer to be processed in the United States, so we ordered the lottery board to have funds transferred directly by you from a bank registered to the lottery organization so as to enable you receive your lottery winnings within 24 hours. They complied with our instructions and the amount of $1,000,000.00 US Dollars was deposited with Washington First Bank.

We have completed this investigation and you are hereby approved to receive the winning prize immediately as we have verified the entire transaction to be Legitimate, Safe and 100% risk free. Due to the fact that the funds were transferred to the United States from an international location, it is 100% Tax-Free, which means the funds are bonded and nothing can be deducted from it before you make your transfer. According to our records and because of the tax-free-no-deduction policy, you are required to settle the following bills for authorization directly to your lottery claims agent in charge of this transaction before you can transfer the funds to yourself: Cost of EFT Transfer & Conversion Fee.

The total amount is $299.99 (Two Hundred & Ninety Nine United States Dollars & Ninety Nine Cents). We have tried our possible best to have the lottery organization deduct the $299.99 from your lottery winning but the funds have already been deposited at the bank and cannot be accessed by anyone apart from you (the winner), again due to the Tax-Free-No-Deduction policy. Therefore you have to pay the required fees to your lottery claims agent in charge of this transaction. You will be granted instant access to the bank account where your $1,000,000 was deposited and you will make the transfer out to your nominated bank account by yourself.

In order to claim your $1,000,000.00, here are your Winning Numbers: 12-29-46-47-51-(24). Go to the UK Mega Millions Lottery website: http://us.megamdc.com/index/log/claims.html to check your numbers and fill in and submit the Claims Processing Form. As soon as your form is received a claims agent will be in contact with you. For your comfort you can click on Winners Gallery just to be clear and verify from other lottery winners.

This letter and the seal above will serve as proof that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is authorizing you to pay the required $299.99 to the UK Mega Millions Lottery by means they provide you with. Once again this lottery has been VERIFIED and is under our 24hr surveillance every step of the way.

To avoid unnecessary delay and complications leading from unsuccessful participants, please keep your Winning Numbers safe and away from 2nd or 3rd parties. Be sure to mention that your winning has been verified by the Department of Homeland Security in the comment box of the payment processing form.
