Dear Valued Customer

We are pleased to inform you of the results from our just concluded Western Union Money Transfer/MoneyGram lottery draws. The draws were conducted from an exclusive list of over 3,000,000 details of individuals that have used any of Western Union Money Transfer or MoneyGram products in the past either by sending money, receiving money or paying other bills through WU/MoneyGram as a means of appreciation and also to encourage new customers.  In all this number, only 20 winners emerged from around the world. No lottery ticket was sold in this lottery, but data of qualified persons were collated from all WU/MoneyGram outlets worldwide.

After the automated computerized ballot, we are pleased to inform you that you emerged as one of our lucky winners in the 3rd category. Though there are some people in 1st category to 5th category. You are to receive a cash prize of US$950, 000.00 (Nine Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars) only. Your prize award is covered under an insurance bond policy in your name and will be transferred to you upon final verifications of your winning status by our appointed paying bank. And to ensure credibility in this, we have appointed a bank in the UK in paying all winners.
