419 Scam – "RoyalGlobe Sweepstakes (Mr. Jim Don, Mrs. Hilary Berkamp)"

"RoyalGlobe Sweepstakes (Mr. Jim Don, Mrs. Hilary Berkamp)" is a fake lottery in the Netherlands. It is a "419" scam (advance fee fraud).

The objective of the scam is to get victims to wire € 850 to a criminal in Amsterdam, Netherlands via Western Union money transfer. All the scam emails we have seen come from IP address, an ADSL account at Euronet / Wanadoo Nederland.

Send us any 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" and ask for the address to be suspended because it is used in a 419 fraud (see 419 FAQ).
