Thanks to one of our readers from France, we are able to notify everyone about another scam where the sender, pretending to be from OSA, provides UK contact numbers that people have to contact in order to claim fictitious winnings. We would like to warn all our subscribers not to reply to email scams such as these and contact us if in doubt.

Dear Sir:

I would like to wish a great congratulation on your big winnings!!!  You have just received your winning notification letter from Mrs. Nelson, and you were told to contact me for the claiming of your winnings. My job as your agent is to make sure that you receive your winnings without any delay.
The purpose of this letter is that I wanted to give you a quick explanation of what is involved in the procedure to claiming these funds. I am sure you are wondering how you won this money. Well, the Overseas Subscribers Agents (OSA) held a promotional bonanza draw. The selection process was carried out through random selection in our Computerized Email Selection System (C.E.S.S.) from a database of over a million email addresses from the World Wide Web out of a pool and entered them all into a draw. You and two other people are going through the exact same procedure to claim these funds. So I hope that you will enjoy your riches the way I am sure you deserve.

I have attached a legal document for you to go through, you will be hearing from me again within 24 to 48 hours as soon as we are true with your file. And if you do have any question at any time please do not hesitate to ask me.  Once again, We the entire board of commission congratulates you on your big

Sam Perry
