    Hello,

    My Name is Richard and my wife's name is Angela,we won the recently held Euro million Lottery in March this year in the United Kingdom.Upon winning we decided to share with a few people,after which we held a process and we chose those to benefit from our donation of which you emerged and this was why we first contacted you.So thank you for your response. I am indeed happy about this win as I was stunned for hours and could not believe it when I first saw the ticket match. Though my wife and I are living comfortably, we have always wanted to win the lottery so that we could give out more, so I know for sure that this win is for sharing.

    I know you would ask why me? you dont even know me,and all that questions.But I'd like you to know that I do understand if you have got doubts, but this can become a reality for you if you believe as donations of these dimensions are extremely rare. Below is a news feed to enable you verify and confirm our win.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lincolnshire-32158366

    We have concluded plans with my bank to remit funds to you, so I require you to immediately get back to me with the below information and on confirmation of your response, I will provide you with further information on receiving the fund.

    Full Names:
    Contact / resident Address:
    Phone Number:
    Country / Nationality:
    Age:

    We have made physical donations, also between ten different national charities and my wife and I came up with the idea of donating to some individuals over the internet. So we had to go look up email directories and randomly selected few emails and I that's how you got the email which you received from us.

    Thank you for accepting our offer, we are indeed grateful. Hoping to hear from you soon,

    Best wishes,
    Richard and Angela Maxwell.

    I responded to the above email I have also received. This is the response I got. It will require deposit of my funds into an account they open for me.... SCAM

    Email contact I receive correspondence from richieandangiemax@126.com

    Dear ********
    On behalf of my wife and family members I am happy to inform you that we have sent your details over to the management of our bank. The amount of seven hundred and fifty thousand British pounds has now been deposited with the bank and they have been authorised to commence with the disbursement to you via a secured swift online process. Every transfer process in getting this fund to you legally would be commenced and also note that we require you to map out good strategies in ensuring that the underprivileged benefits more from this fortune you would be receiving from us.

    To confirm your reliability for this donation we hope that our aim of giving out this fund to you is achieved. When you are in receipt of the fund, all you are required to do is make your list of known charity organisations in your community, make donations to them and 40% of the fund should be for yourself; this is really our main aim of giving out this fund to you.

    Now taking into cognizance the nature of the funds, the United Kingdom Financial Security Act on charities requires donation beneficiaries like you to open an account with the payout bank over here in the U.K., who will be responsible for the clearing of your benefits here in England before the fund can be transferred by you to your designated bank account. The account when opened with them must have a minimum account deposit, and such deposit must come from you. This is being done because the account must have a minimum balance to be able to accommodate such huge amount, this is also known as opening balance. The opening balance is still your money, and when you are transferring the donation amount from the account you opened with the bank you can transfer the total amount (inclusive of the minimum account deposit) if you wish. I have therefore included a donation code number issued by the bank to this message [RA/0431/2015EU] which should be kept strictly confidential as you would need it to contact the bank. You are to immediately contact the Regional Director Private Banking, Clydesdale Bank, as he has been assigned to personally deal with you on this transaction.

    CONTACT DETAILS:

    Mr. Andrew Merrifield
    Regional Director Private Banking, Clydesdale Bank Plc
    London, United Kingdom.
    Registered Office: 35 Regent Street, London, Greater London SW1Y 4ND, United Kingdom.
    E-mail: customerservice@clydesbnk.com
    andrewmerrifield@clydesbnk.com
    Tel: +44 74 1847 8689 | Fax: +44 70 1004 9546
    {Kindly call or send an email to him}

    Upon contact with Mr. Merrifield you are to provide him with your donation code number [RA/0431/2015EU] so that he can verify your identity with the details we sent over to their office. And for security reasons we request that the content of your transaction is kept confidential and away from the hearing of any third party. There isn't much to say, Angela and I would still go along with our normal life although there might be a little change but we will do our best to ensure that this lottery win is well spent. I believe people just need to be given a chance. Everyone has the right to work for a living, to support their families, to buy their own home, to run their own business.

    Please endeavor to keep us fully informed on all developments with the bank so that we can also monitor the transfer process through a feedback from you.

    Best wishes,
    Richard and Angela Maxwell.

  15. Scammers Use Names of Lottery Winners Richard and Angela Maxwell

    According to this message, your email address has been randomly selected to receive a cash donation of 1 million British pounds courtesy of EuroMillions lottery winners Richard and Angela Maxwell.

    Supposedly, as a means of celebrating their massive win, the Maxwells have set up an 'Email Financial Support Project' to select 6 people to receive a million pound windfall. The message claims the winning addresses were chosen via a 'Google powered email newsletter software operated by registered British freelance tech experts'.

    To claim your donation, you are instructed to reply with your name, age, and address details.

    But, alas, the email is just another advance fee scam

    Richard and Angela Maxwell really did win a very large lottery prize - £53m - via a EuroMillions jackpot in April 2015. However, the couple did not send this email and they are not giving away millions of pounds to strangers randomly selected via the Internet.

    If you believed the claims in the message and replied to claim your 'donation', you would soon receive a follow-up email claiming that you must send money to cover various expenses such as banking and insurance fees, tax, and processing costs. The scammers, still posing as Richard and Angela Maxwell, will insist that for legal reasons, the fees must be paid in advance and cannot be deducted from the 'donation' itself.

    If you went ahead and payed the requested amount, further demands for money would likely follow. These demands would continue until you run out of available funds or belatedly realize that you are being scammed.

    At that point, the scammers will simply disappear with your money.

    And, to make matters worse, over the course of the scam, the criminals may have tricked you into supplying a large amount of your personal and financial information, ostensibly to prove your identity and allow your claim to be processed. This information may later be used to steal your identity.

    Winners of large lottery prizes are often featured in various news reports. Scammers use the information in such reports to craft their scam messages and then randomly target potential victims via email spam campaigns.

    Many lottery winners are indeed generous and do give away large portions of their winnings. However, not even the most generous of winners is likely to give away large sums of money to strangers based solely on the selection of their email addresses.

    Do not believe any such claim.
