I don't know much about international telephony, but I think the "fiduciary agent' is located in Mobile, South Africa. Or maybe, on reflection, he HAS a mobile in South Africa! Ha ha on me!

He even called me with the phone number specified , and the interesting point was when he called me with a phone number from romania. It is weired to know that you have won to lottery and you have first to pay a lot of money to enter intheir posesition. I still wait my phone bill (hope that it would br normally). It was close up to belive them , but when I received 18 mails with such winnings , I didn't belive that I can won almost 20 millions euro just claping the keybord for replies.
The're using big corporates name , but I couldn't stop laughing when the a Borland Company entered in game... (I am a computer programmer). But as it keeps going , more people is at risk with those e-mails.


Therefore , I want to create a web blog where we can write all this messages , and there we can give instruction and advices to prevent fraudes. Would you like to contribute with posts on this web blog?

Thanks for the comment, Andrei!

I no faith in ANY lotteries, not even the government run ones. I believe they are a tax on the poor. I have found that some people are just so trusting, they cannot believe someone is trying to rip them off. It is very sad. I don't much want to get involved with another blog, I have trouble enough coming up with the pitiful stuff I put up here! Good luck, though!
