Toyota Award : The fraud

If you get an email telling that you are awarded for your lucky email address don't really on that because it is nothing but the full pack of lie. Don't waste your time in replying these mails because sooner or later you will be asked to pay a advance fee for processing of documents or handling charge. If you pay you will loose your money simply and gain nothing.

No company in world is sitting to spend this much of huge money on silly email address without any reason. This can be done only by scammer/criminal sitting behind it who having lots of spare time to do so.

The spread of e-mail and easy access to e-mail-harvesting software significantly lowered the cost of sending scam letters by using the Internet so the scammers has now adopted this channel. Daily thousand of emails are sent to people all over the world and criminals spending lots of their time in these activities. Whilst the vast majority of recipients do not respond to these e-mails, a very small percentage do, ultimetly they lose their own money in lieu get nothing. For more information read the other scam emails given on this blog.

We can't stop the fraud, but we can have some fun, and make the criminals use their time in vain.


I also got such mail from scammer telling the fake story of £750,000.00 Pounds by Toyota Award Company. The email of scammer and my reply is shown below on this page. Keep reading the mails and enjoy it...


See the mails and enjoy it but do your comment to make other's know.

Tel: +44 703 597 0591
Fax: +44 800 731 4814

I am in reciept of your last mail. For two reasons we cannot deduct from your prize as suggested. The reasons are:

1) A cheque has already been Issued in your favour by the Toyota Award Payment Office. The amount on this cheque is the full value of your Prize-money. We are thus unable to deduct any fee from your cheque.

2) Due to very strict policies laid down by the British Lottery Affairs Commission, we are unable to process the transfer of your winning pakcage by deducting from your prize money. These policies have been put in place to check previously experienced mishandling and/or misappropriation of winners funds, we are obligated to act in line with these policies.

It is very important that we receive the fee prior to the transfer of your winning fund, as part of the fee will be used to cover the necessary charges, also included in the fee is the cost to cover insurance of documents that will be sent to you via courier.

Considering that we cannot process your prize money without payment of the required charges of any of the options, I advise that you arrange for the funds to be transferred as earlier instructed. If you can not come up with this payment, your claims will be cancelled and your funds remmitted to the Toyota Award Payment Office as unclaimed.

You are hereby advice to get back to us if you are ready to make payment.

Awaiting your response.

Mr. Mathew Jones

Subjet Re: PAYMENT MOTIVE (READ CAREFULLY)

Award is sole will and wish of the giving body, it can't be claimed.

This is first time I have seen that for taking any award fee is required.

I don't know why, ' Toyota Award Payment Office has £750.000.00
Pounds to pay the award but it doesn't has £180 to pay processing fee'
it is amazing.
