The next step is an email directing a victim to contact the fake courier company to deliver the prize check. The postal address is the same as for "Speedfast Worldwide" in another version of the scam.

Sorry for the delay in replying you i received your email and have forwarded your winning check of US$1.4million to the courier firm that will handle the delivery. It will be delivered to you within 24hours after you have taken care of the required cost. You were told about the fact that you will handle the cost in my previous mail. You are to proceed to your bank with the check to cash it once you receive it.
You are to contact the courier at once with your full name and address on the requirements to sending your check to you. Below are their contact details:

Next the "courier company" contacts the victim and asks him/her to wire cash by Western Union to London to be picked up by a member of the gang using a ficticious name:
