419 Scam Example: "Liverpool Promotions"

"Liverpool Promotions" is a fake lottery scam run by a gang in South Africa, despite the UK phone numbers (which redirect calls to another number).

Please send us replies by "claims agents", especially money demands and payment instructions, we will publish them here.

Please forward copies of fraud emails to the abuse department of the webmail address listed as the contact email for the "claims agent". Ask for the addresses to be suspended because they are used in a 419 fraud (see 419 FAQ).
