    I received such kind of email nearly everyday, and few times calls also and I just keep deleting those emails away. One thing for sure, it's a scam.

    They claim you won some money but insisted that you must first pay some % of tax or admin charges, and yet, they can't deduct from the so called price money you won.

    I read some where on a website before that there were those fell for such trap, they paid the tax or admin charges but never get any price money at all.

    Conclusion? I rather believes that I strike TOTO or 4D on my own then to believes in such email or calls that tell me I've won some grant prices.

    i'm no expert here, it maybe some money laundering operation..
    AND furthermore, if u are caught with unknown large sum of money, CPIB can throw u in jail.
    Open a Swiss bank account mah.

    Then travel to Malaysia.

    From there run to Hong Kong to hide and spend the money.

    Ask them to deposit 50% of the prize money in your account, then you'll send 50% of the "taxes".

    Hi i got the same call yesterday and today, in the begining they don't reveal so much, only after their so call superior call then tell you about the 15% HK tax and need us to transfer 4900 first. And she said they can only transfer the full amount of 200000 as policy or regulation etc. I refused to transfer. If this is true, they should have arrangement with the HK gov to deduct out the 15% tax instead of wanting the winner to go thru all the inconvenience. I believe some of their employee may not know the whole true behind the company.

    Scenario:

    A person from this company called me and asked me to go to their company event on Wed in Malaysia.
    I asked her how did she got my number and she told me because I bought a gadget and did a survey.(I bought so many gadget, so I didn't asked further.)
    I wasn't free and did not attend.

    On Thur, the same person called me again and told me that they had a lucky draw from the dinner and I got second prize which is SGD$ 200,000!!!

    She asked for my bank a/c no. and said the company will transfer to me.
    After that, she said I have to pay 15% of the 200,000 as Country Tax.

    I told her I don't have and she asked me to find ways to get it in order to receive the 200,000.

    Anyone encounter the similar case as I did?

    Also most importantly, if the amount is so huge, there should have some lawyer or accountant company letter from them thru local company to inform the big prize and not just go thru phone call to indentify and transfer money........ It's too good to be true!!!!

    i have the same call and they didn't reveal much until their so call superior called to talk about HK gov tax 15% and said they can only transfer the full amount of 200000, can't deduct the 15% first. We need to transfer 4900 to them first then their accountant and lawyer then will release the 200000 prize to us...this is so becos there are winner who do not transfer back to them the 15% tax.... i refused. If this is true, such a big prize should have letter to inform us and not just a phone call to verify and transfer money, so simple and too easy, too good to be true!!!! Plus if this is true, they should have arrangement and gone thru the procedure with the gov to deduct the 15% tax before transfer money to winner then have the winner or themselves to go thru so much hassel right?
