419 Scam – "FORTUNE CITY LOTTERY / GREENWOOD CONSULTANTS LTD / KELVIN W. NOBLE"

"FORTUNE CITY LOTTERY / GREENWOOD CONSULTANTS LTD / KELVIN W. NOBLE" is a "419" scam operated by criminals in Nigeria. Do not respong to winning notifications. They are mailed to thousands of recipients indiscriminately, in order to defraud them of bogus "processing fees".

The same scam later resurfaced under a different label, "NETXPRESS LOTTERY INTERNATIONAL / Mr.GEORGE WILLIAMS / Netxpress Diplomatic Courier Services".
