My name is Gary Lunsford, I received an email from Chevron/Texaco @1902 Chevron Layout, WUSE Zone 2, Wuse, Abuja, Nigeria, stating that I have won $500,000.00 (verification #CT-222-6747,FGN/P-900-56). The email was sent by Kenneth Davids, Claims Processing Officer @phone: +234-702-674-2704. The email requested basic personal information which I provided.
Today I received another email from The Chevron/Texaco Oil Company @ 2 Chevron Drive, Lekki Peninsula, PMB 1282, Lagos Nigeria. This email states that my check and winners certificate have been cut and I need to select a delivery option to receive my check. These options range from $200 - $350 charges for shipping, handling, insurance & Vat charges.
While I would love to win $500,000.00 these emails are requesting me to pay these charges as a prize winner which smells wrong and I can't afford to take a chance of sending $200 - $350 for a bogus prize.
The email states I must pick an option within 48 hours or lose the prize which also smells bogus.
Please route this question to the proper person promptly. I have trusted your company and used your products for a long time and would not like to think it would sponsor a contest which wasn't on the up & up.
My email address is email@example.com, and cell phone 505-402-3526.
Please let me know ASAP if this is real or bogus.
Thank you for your attention:
Gary L. Lunsford
