This is to inform you that i have your Check from the United Kingdom due to your Lottery win of $7.3million. The check is here in Washington. However, I cannot send or give it to you as i promised/signed a document with the National Lottery that you must pay the Funds release fee, certificate fees and mailing of $500 before the check is handed to you. However, i tried having them reduce the fee but could only get it down to $500. It was initially $600

I made them send the check to an agent of theirs here in USA first as a sign of good faith. I have verified the check from the issuing bank and it is legitimate and valid. Since they trusted me and sent the check, I will not disappoint them. I will keep to my end of the agreement which is to ensure you send the $500 to them first before i send an agent to deliver the check to you in person.

Your check will be sent once i receive confirmation that you have sent the fee. Congratulations

You are to send the payment by western union or moneygram to the National Lottery agent here in Washington,

Receiver..Victoria Thorne
Receiver Address...1008 NE 87th Ave, Vancouver, Washington, USA
Question: purpose
Answer: check

Send me the western union or moneygram receipt when done.

Please note that the check cannot be cashed by anyone except you. You are to deposit it to your bank account. It would need fourteen (14) workings day to clear into your account. It cannot be cashed over the counter

Your's Sincerely,

James B Comey
FBI Director
