419 Scam – "SUDDEUTSCHE KLASSEN LOTTERIE (Walters Richardson, Violletta Kclose)"
"SUDDEUTSCHE KLASSEN LOTTERIE (Walters Richardson, Violletta Kclose)" is a fake lottery in a 419 scam run by a gang in Nigeria that is stealing the identity of a legitimate German lottery company. The real "Süddeutsche Klassenlotterie" does not organize any "email lottery", nor does it award prizes to people who didn't buy a ticket, nor does it demand €1,850 from winners before they can get their prize.
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 MSN domains and/or webmail address listed as the contact email for the "claims agent". Ask for the domains / addresses to be suspended because they are used in a 419 fraud (see 419 FAQ).

Ref: EAASL/941OYI/02/STXN Batch: 12/25/0034 We are pleased to inform you of the result of the SUDDEUTSCHE KLASSEN LOTTERIE PROGRAM which was held on the 17th Febuary, 2005. Due to mix up of names, the results were finally released on 17th March, 2005. Your Email address attached to ticket number 025-11464992-750 with serial number 2113-05 drew the lucky numbers 4-18-24-30-31-35 which consequently won the lottery in the 1st category. You have therefore been approved for a lump sum payout of €1,000,000.00 (One Million EUROS) in cash credited to file EAASL/941OYI/02/STXN.

This year Lottery Program Jackpot is the largest ever for SUDDEUTSCHE KLASSEN LOTTERIE. The estimated €50 million jackpot would be the sixth-biggest in Europe history. The biggest was the €363 million jackpot that went to two winners in a Febuary 2000 drawing of The Big Game Mega Millions' predecessor. Your fund is now deposited in an offshore bank insured in your name. Due to the mix up of some numbers and names, we advice that you keep this award from public notice until your claim has been processed and your money remitted to your nominated bank account as this is part of our security protocol to avoid double claiming or unwarranted taking advantage of this program by the general public. Please note that your lucky winning number falls within our European booklet representative office in Europe as indicated.
