‘Compensation and Finance House’ Advance Fee Scam

Supposedly, this email comes from the head office of an organization called the  Compensation and Finance House.

It claims that, by contacting an agent of the  Finance House, you can arrange for the delivery of an ‘international certified bank draft ‘ valued at £10 million.

Ostensibly, this money is compensation for a previous UK Online Lotto win that was not successfully claimed.  

But, alas, the email is just another advance fee scam designed to steal your money and personal information.   There is no   £10 million compensation fund and the email is not from any legitimate entity.

Such ruses are often aimed at people who have lost money in previous advance fee scam attempts. Desperate victims may believe that, via this supposed  Compensation and Finance House, they will finally receive the payout they have been waiting for.

In reality, both this and the original UK Online Lotto messages are different versions of the same scam.

The text of the scam email reads:

CONGRATULATIONS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Due to your effort, sincerity, courage and trust worthiness you showed at the course of the Uk Online Lotto Winning cheque shipment to your location, I want to compensate you and show my gratitude to you with the sum of E10, million GBP I have authorized the finance house where I deposited the money to issue you international certified bank draft cashable at your bank.My dear winner,I will like you to contact the CEO in charge of the finance house for the collection of this international certified bank draft.

At the moment, I am very busy at Sydney,Australia because of the investment projects which myself and my new partner Mr Peter Hills of CTL Company are
having at hand.Finally, remember that I have forwarded instruction to the MR KEVIN WILLIAMS at the finance house on your behalf to send the bank draft to you as soon as you contact him without delay.

Please I will like you to accept this token with good faith as this is from the bottom of my heart.Thanks and God bless you and your family.

My sincere advice to you as a christian is that you should endeavour to pay your tithe to a bible believing church when you get the money because
i noticed it as a fudiciary agent that you were skeptical about your winnings when you were been ask by the Uk lotto Agency Inc to file out a claim for your prize. And now the current policy of the Lotto organiser is that if an emerged winner fails to claim up his/her winning cheque of E10, million GBP, it’s now mandatory
that this fund can be remitted or forfeited to the fudiciary agent in charge of this winners file.
