Me being a suspicious person hurried up to check in the web if this thing is official, as there is sth really strange about it. Alright I won a great prize, however they were posting me from hotmail accounts in 6 in the morning central European time, please...there should be something wrong.

So according to this e-mail they are a reputable company working with a permit given by British Gaming Board, London. It sounds so justifying. However if you google British Gaming Board, you will pop up only fraudery reported.
Just wondering if there is a way to trace those people and stop them. Obviously there are doing this for many years, because I read in the net blogs that are as old of 2005/6, So there are quite a lot of people sufering from this criminals.
If you know a way of stopping those people please let me know.

Don't be fooled
money never comes as easy as 500 000 GBP.
