I was stunned; my eyes glued to the computer screen.
I read the piece of mail. My eyes startled. I knew we were in need of money and the opportunity was just days away. I ran to my parents and showed them the piece of mail I just printed of it that was about the national lottery. They have said I have won over half a million pounds. I didn’t ask myself any questions. I just knew, I had won the lottery. My dad read through it and looked at me and gave me a hug. He told my mother. Everyone was saying how lucky I was. I replied back to them giving my full details. Within an hour or so they said I had been cleared, as a winner and that I should follow the next set of instructions I did as it said. The next set was to get on the phone and order the cheque from Liverpool to my home address. My Dad picked up the phone and rang the courier company that it told to ring the TNT couriers company. We waited several minutes before they picked up they asked my Dad what is the cost he asked them and they started asking personal questions and they put the phone down. But he didn’t give in he rang again Then they picked it up again and started going threw the prices
“ It should be about nine hundred pounds”.
Then he started going threw a whole lot of other prices special offers and nonsense like that.
My dad put the phone straight down and logged on to a search page and put in their address WHITCHURCH, HANTS.
It appeared in block capitals National Lottery Frauds. That’s when questions started popping up in front of me.
The biggest one was how could I win if I hadn’t even brought a lottery ticket?He clicked on the block capitals there was pages full of names of people who had followed them, and the pictures of the men that fooled me into such a despicable crime.
