+1 This scam came to me via email as a gmail alert.

Scam Website:
I received a Gmail Alert notice via my email stating that I and five others were selected as lottery winners from their annual online lottery drawings because of our activity on gmail and microsoft.

The email stated that I had won 500,000.00 and an Apple Laptop and that I would need to submit to them my name, age, address, employment status and telephone number. Once I provided that information, I received a second email stating that I had successfully pass their eligibility requirement. They also stated that I would need to contact their courier service whose contact information they provided and submit to them the same personal information about myself.

They stated that the Global Courier Service would be the entity to delivery the payment check, a certificate of claim and the Apple Laptop. However, there would be a charge for this service that could not be deducted from the winnings and once I provided the courier service with my personal information, they would then contact me to let me know how much money I would need to pay them before they could deliver the prize.

I noticed many misspelled words, grammatical and punctuation errors which cause me to be suspicious. So, I responded via email telling them that I never knew a person had to pay to receive something that they supposedly had won and would the prize be forfeited if I couldn\'t pay. So far, I haven\'t received a response with an explanation.

Scam Email
The scammer used logos which almost threw me off and the more I read the specifics of how to accumulate my, supposedly, "winnings," it sounded too good to be true. So I proceeded to look up the courier services that they claimed to be affiliated with, it turned out that there was no such company.The scam stated that I won $500,000 and a laptop. I was to contact a dispatch officer by the name of Wilford Kumar and the email was signed by Barry help.
