False awards RRS feed

  • Question

  • The first e-mail letter I got was dated 2015-09-04 informing me that I had won The Microsoft Annual Promotion Award signed by Owen Sagness, General Manager, Online Divion, United Kingdom.

    How to stop these false informations?

    Other companies in this mess refered to in the false e-mail letters were: The Speed Link Delivery Company in London, Ryan and Associates in London and Barclays Bank, PLC 1 Churchill Place London.

    I have been requested to pay different fees for the cost of transfering the money of the award from the Barclays Bank to a Swedish bank in Stockholm. These fees were  £1800 GBP for the bank transference and £3650 GBP for the cost a layer.

    How to stop these irritating e-mail letters?

  • I'd ask your email service provider. Should be fairly simple to filter them out on some string criteria in the header.
