Hello,
 
I received your mail. I spoke with Sussan Bate regarding your winnings.
 
She adviced that after you make payment for the legal fee, you will need to secure the Anti- Terrorist Clearance certificate which will cost you about $8,540 CAD . This is due to the international monitoring of all large-scale financial movements after the september 11th 2001 Terrorist attack on the America , the Anti-Terrorist Clearance Certificate must back up the moving of funds above $100,000 CAD. This document certify that your funds are not meant to finance Terrorist Activities and it will exonorate your funds from money laundary.
 
I will issue out a cheque of $9,600 CAD payable to you which will cover your legal fee and The Anti-Terrorist Clearance. Once you receive the funds, you will contact Sussan Bate to make payment for these fees in order to redeem your winngs.
 
After you receive your prize, you will return my $9,600 CAD including 10% of your funds as my commission.
 
I hope the 10% commission is okay by you. Get back to me as soon as possible.
 
Jassim.

The "helpful man" is part of the scam. Do not send personal information, and never send money to the criminals behind scams like this one.

This scam is very similar to the Fountain Frontline Promotions story.
