the prize director representing the Shell International Lottery Corporation's Un-Claimed Department. On October 20th, 2005 at approximately 3:45pm, I tried contacting you, but unfortunately was unable to get a hold of you. The main reason for electronically mailing you this letter is to inform you of the reason for my call. Every year we receive over 5,000 entry forms from different lottery players from around the world. Precisely speaking, I was just looking at our network to find out that you were selected as a prize winner on November 24th, 2005 and you havn't claimed your winnings, for the sum of US US$500,000 . Usually when a winner doesn't claim their money there should be a note that says why the winner has not claimed their money, and the client file will be closed. So I am mailing in regards to know why you have not made any effort to claim your money. You have $500,000 sitting here, waiting for you. I dontknow why somebody will wait that long to claim their money?? To elaborate more, this draw was held in Australia, where our head office is located. Moreover, if we did not hear from you within 3 weeks from the day this letter was sent, your file will close and you will no longer be able to claim your winnings. Our main payment office is located in North America. This is where you will be receiving your amount of winnings US$500,000 DOLLARS from. Nevertheless, according to the federal and international law concerning the personal collection of prize winnings, your bonding fees, broker fees, and tarrif fees, have already been deducted from your winnings. So congratulations once again. For more information concerning your winnings, please contact your Claims Agent Rev James Smith using:
When is a better time to get a hold of you.
