I have tried to get through but all I get is a modem talking to me - and I have won £1 million and all I want to do is claim it. If you get through ask them to just send the cheque.

It is not often they leave their telephone number available....

I just received my letter too....How exciting!
I've never won anything before, especially without buying a ticket for a lottery or drawing. When I get one of these emails I automatically search for internet scams, and invariably the specifics of my particular lotto win "company" or endorser come up.

What is their goal? To steal our identities? They can have mine for nothing if they want it LOL.
Just wanted to share my experience. Feel free to take a look at my Blog. There are some legitimate opportunities out there. Thanks for letting me share. S. Sandstrom

Wow! How exciting it is to win something you didn't even know you entered into, never heard of before, or dealt with anything from the UK ever before. If it's legit and they got my email address without me giving it to them, they must know where to send the check to as well. Here's a copy of what they sent me so others can see the scam that was sent to them as well.

I also received tis apple lottery email on the 24.Feb and the next on the 25th with the same content - except the alpha bank account direktor and phone number - but the same ticket, Ref and Batch Number. What a bullshit is this!
The Account Director in my email is Mr Edison Larry. His email: edisonlarry@alphaprivatbank.wanadoo.co.uk
Well, the good thing is; I had some very nice days - thinking about. :-)

You asked for their benefit. Here it is!!
LOL mackensy
Funny the amount I won was 1 Million before, now it is 2,5 Million, nice. :-)

Dear XXXX,
Thanks for contacting ALPHA BANK CO. We are a Security Company contracted by the APPLE LOTTERY for the smooth transfer of funds to their online overseas winners. Your certificate of winnings and your form b1(otherwise known as the clearance certificate) has been sent to us by your Claims Officer. This is to inform you that after verification of your claims particulars,you have been officially cleared for payment by the Accreditation Committee of the APPLE LOTTERY Claims Department.

The original copy of this certificate, together with a covering document from the Camelot group-London (licenced operator of the UK Gaming Commission) proclaiming that the money was obtained legally will be sent to you .

You can now begin the final step of the claims process which is the transfer of your cash prize to your beneficiary account. The said amount $2,500,000.00 will be wired to your bank account via Swift Bank Transfer.
Condition: As your funds have been deposited in a domicile Account, you are required to pay Activation Fee 0.035%(i.e $350.00 ) and also the cost of COT (Commission Of Transfer) being charged by our bank, which is 0.015% (i.e $150.00) of the cash being transferred.
Note that your prize is being protected by a hardcover insurance policy, which makes it impossible to deduct any amount from the money before it has been 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.

Your documents will sent to you by express courier to your designated address within the next 48 hours after confirmation of your payment slip.
You will make payment for the Activation Fee and Commission Of Transfer via Money Gram Transfer or Western Union to our Account Officer;

Hope you do understand every content of this message.

I await your prompt response.
