Last two week ago, I received a call from an IT company inviting me to their IT exhibition overseas and provided me a lucky draw number. During the day of lucky draw, they even call me from the exhibition hall informing me that I have won their second prize lucky draw (S$200,000) and ask me to come down and collect the prize at the exhibition.
This morning, they call me again to inform that I could still claim the prize by completing the prize collection application. For them to transfer the prize money to me, they requested me to provide them with my local saving account number to process the prize collection application.
After a few minutes later, they call me again to inform me that the application was successful and I have to pay a percentage of the prize money for their Tax ($40,000) after I received cash prize. They even provided me with their company website, username and password to view my name on prize winner listing. However, from their past records, some prize owner did not pay the Tax after they received the prize money. Therefore to avoid this problem, I have to transfer a deposit of $3980 before the price money will be transferred to me.
I want to share this information in case anyone of you decided to pay the deposit.
