Neil Trotter Shares 1.5m With Me!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 4, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Did you catch the news in the UK press that the forty-one year old Neil Trotter has won the lottery? I guess when someone wins one hundred and eight million pounds it’s worth more than a few notes in the newspapers, and a lot of background checking too, just to see what sort of person he is and what has happened in his past. But is he really as bad as at least one newspaper makes him out to be? Could there be a heart of gold beating in that chest which makes the ex-Marine, accused of extremist comments and caught up in the tragic loss of a baby plus the heart-rending split with his girlfriend?

Believe it or not, he might just be an angel in disguise, with all that money turning his head and making him start afresh.

Especially when you read this mail which I received.

Greetings, I am Neil Trotter, if you have received this email then you are one of the lucky fellows to benefit from me. I am happy to inform you that i have chosen you to be one of my donation beneficiary from my Euro Millions Jackpot win of £108 Million (One hundred and Eight Million Pounds Sterling). Based on the win i decided that just 5 people be selected for this benefit, leaving each beneficiary with £1.5 million Pounds Sterling each to better their lives because i cannot enjoy it all alone, as the win is for sharing.

This donation is made out to you voluntarily to enable you strengthen your personal issues and mostly to generously help me extend hands of giving to the less privilege, orphans and charity organizations within your locality. This might appear strange but it is a reality, so do get back to me quickly via email at: neiltrotteruk@****.net

Regards,

Neil Trotter.

which casts a completely different light on his character.

What would you do with so much money? Imagine winning one of the superballs, or snowballs, or the Spanish lottery, or the Euromillions or any one of the other lotteries which have six, seven or eight figures before the decimal point. No one can spend that much money in their own lifetime, unless they give it away.

Now, if you split it down into smaller parcels, as Neil in his mail to me, and four others, is doing, it becomes much easier to handle. So of course I replied to him.

Dear Neil,

I read about your win in the news. Congratulations! And that you want to share it with a few people is really wonderful. I don’t know what I would do with so much money, apart from helping other people around me, but I am glad that you decided to pick me!

Viktoria

You see, I know that I can do a great deal with all that money. For one thing we need new curtains! Well, to be honest, we don’t need new curtains, but it would be fun to re-style the apartment and bring some fresh wind into our lives. And, of course, into the lives of so many others, when we share the money we are bound to receive amongst the needy. That, after all, is the idea behind the whole scheme, isn’t it? That is why everyone is going to find out that Neil Trotter has a heart of gold.

Hello Lucky Donation Recipient,

Your response has been received. You are lucky to be one of the selected recipients in this Donation Scheme, your email was gotten through an on-line email ballot system which chooses emails to be contacted anonymously and luckily you emerged as one of the 5 persons contacted. I am grateful to God for this fortune and i thank him so much for the smiles he has put on my face, so in turn i have decided to put smiles on the faces of other people.

It might interest you to know that i am fully aware that most people might be sceptical about this donation, that is why i decided to go public by attaching the link of my Euro Millions win in this e-mail. http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/03/18/neil-trotter-euromillions-winner_n_4984234.html

I am sure with the link, you wouldn’t be sceptical as this is not a scam, it is absolutely a blessing from God. I believe i am doing the right thing in deciding to put smiles on the faces of other people by reaching out to some individuals, the less privileged ones and charity organizations too.

In view of all these, I want you to know that measures have been put in places for my intentions to be implemented swiftly and by so doing, I require you to immediately get back to me with the below information.

Full Names:
Contact / resident Address:
Gender / Age:
Phone Number:
Occupation:
Country / Nationality:

Please be aware that i do not need your information for any other purpose, I only need these information because i need to have a correct record of who i am dealing with so as to establish a better relationship with you.

Awaiting your prompt response.

Mr. Neil Trotter.

Of course, the truth is completely different. Such a mail is too good to be true. It simply doesn’t happen. There are people who go out and give massive tips to waitresses – in the name of Jesus or whatever – and some who give their time and energies to helping those in need personally. But a mail to an anonymous, unknown person offering them over a million pounds? And the questions asked are exactly the same as with so many other scams, just to get your identity and, if all goes well for them, allow the scammers to take it over. I mean, why do they need my name, for example, when I am only one of five lucky winners and they have written to me personally?

Of course it’s a scam. It can’t be anything other than scam because, no matter how much you wish that there really were such people in the world, no matter how much you believe that there is good in every single person out there, the chances of meeting up with them of getting a mail from them, are so close to none whatsoever that you cannot measure the space between none whatsoever and the remotest chance. Aside from which, this sort of scam, which I am sure less wakeful people will fall for, is covered in other news already.

And of course I created a throwaway mail account to contact whoever is behind the scam and see how they work it. The gray mass between my ears does do a little work sometimes!

Love & Kisses, Viki.

    Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
    On the, small but existing, probability that this may not be a scam and that Mr. Trotter might shed a few million pounds your way, I took the liberty of sending him as much information as I have. 80 – 20 split if it works?

    • Oh, most certainly. However, I also sent him some (false) information just to see whether I get another reply and what it says. Who knows, perhaps the sage will become a real saga and not just a post! As to Neil Trotter, the best of luck to him, the real one I mean, because this is clearly not him!

      • Simon Fabin says:

        I also received a similar message and even followed him on Facebook. I later found it to be a scam. How can I get to contact him, really, then?

        • You can’t. None of the Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus accounts belong to him, they are all scams.

          • Simon Fabin says:

            Really? OK, why did you manage to get the money from him, then?

          • Simon Fabin says:

            Madam, I am seriously in need of money. Help me to contact him, please.

          • Michael Martin says:

            I did, I just used google street view to ascertain the house number in the road he lives in by looking at the numbers visibleon the houses to the left of his…dead easy,then wrote to his home in a letter. No reply as yet though but if I do I will not tell anyone the content or indeed if he gives me the help I have asked for. That will be between me and him. It is actually quite easy to find someones address, the various news reports about his lottery win spared no secrets to his location… even the road name, and then google street view just does the rest.

            • I have used Google Streetview to find someone too – a commenter on here who was going a touch over the top – but wouldn’t think of trying it for such a thing, especially since I know that all of this is a scam, pure and simple. He never said that he’d share the millions with anyone else, just the same as those on Malaysian flight MH270 aren’t leaving me any money in their wills. I suspect that any begging letters sent direct to him will hit the trash can without being opened. But, hey, if you want to try, why not?

    • Francois Demers says:

      Fun trivia from real life: winners of large sums from state lotteries typically lose everything within one year of cashing in.

      • The lottery here in Germany insists that major winners go and visit them and attend courses on how to handle money. They do not pay out automatically, but make sure that the winners have adequate advice first, and a bank account where their winnings can be deposited without everyone finding out that they’ve won. In Germany the names of winners are not released to the general public!

        Of course, that doesn’t stop people from blowing it all…

    • Matthew lavelle says:

      I as well just received this email with a document I will cut and paste.

       

      TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

       

      This is a personalized email directed to you as the owner of this contact address. Please keep this document safe and secured as it is very important. In March 14th of 2014, I (NEIL TROTTER) won the Euro Millions jackpot Lottery of £107.9 Million British Pounds fortune. After seeking financial advice from my legal counsels with the help of my pastor who advised me to donate 10% of my lottery winning as a tight and thanksgiving and as I promised at the 02 Arena, London press conference. I have now decided to fulfill that promise by donating the sum of $800,000.00 (Eight hundred Thousand United States Dollars) each to 20 unknown lucky people as part of my charity project to improve the lives of these lucky individuals from around the world.

      • I am amazed, but not surprised, that this scam is still doing the rounds. So many other people have won lotteries since Trotter, and had their names publicized in the media, that I would have imagined a new name would have taken his place. Still, as long as people keep on falling for it, I suppose scammers will keep it alive.

    I’m a retired lifeguard who returned my info to wrong guys as well and supposedly the email originates from Nigeria and bounced through a server in Brazil.

  • Simon Fabin says:

    Please, send your comments to me via my email, simonk***1990@***. com

    • Sorry, but it doesn’t work that way. Comments are designed to be on the post to which they refer, that’s the whole point of a ‘comment’. And, since I’ve already written that this whole Neil Trotter thing is a scam, and explained that there is no money to be had, why should I have to repeat it in a mail?

  • Simon Fabin says:

    I appreciate your patience and time to respond to my comments. I am humbled by you!

  • Kimberly says:

    Thank you for calling this scam out. I was praying it was true when I received the email (as I am sure most would) because I could actually help my family, as well as those around me who needed help. We all have our sob story and without me sharing mine, I must say, I was full of hope for the split second that I thought this could be true. Obviously, upon further research it was proven to be a scam. Thank you for posting your article which helped me to divert what could have been quite a messy situation.

    • I think many, many people have hoped that it is true and, sadly, some will have reacted to the information and, possibly, lost either their personal information or some money in the process. It is fair to say that any such offer on the Internet is not real. If it were, then the person making the offer would come direct to their recipient and not send out a mass mail wit all the recipients hidden from view.

  • Florian says:

    LinkedIn seems to be the new hunting grounds for those scammers, which is even more dangerous since they add real, reputable people as connections, then send a message with similar text to those reported here. Be careful people not to add or react to someone posing as Neil Trotter on LinkedIn (the .co.za email address linked to the account got me suspicious).

  • Schamisztan says:

    I also received same message at Linkedin, 21 january of 2015. And thank you for all your writings above.

  • jackie says:

    Thanks so much for the info, it was very tempting and I did give a little of my details out but when he came back and said I was to open an offshore account bells started going off in my head. thought it was too good to be true… So I decided to check and hey presto came across u guys.. thanks for the info. Best wishes to you all

    • We didn’t get so far with this. Obviously, the opening of an offshore account is going to bring many, many problems with it and, of course after the opening there will be problems where you – the theoretical winner – have to pay him to transfer money, in advance. That’s where the scammers start making their money.

  • Tami Welliver says:

    I received the beneficiary letter on March 5 2015 that said I would receive $800,000.00. Sure could have used it
    However the same letter said I had to claim by February 4 2015 so it was too late. I was to contact a Molloy
    Allen to handle the processing. IF there is a real Niel Trotter who won the lottery I congratulate him and his family
    Shame on those who give false hopes to people who are really in need.

  • nermin says:

    Do you can help me,please. . .

  • siddharth bansode says:

    I got mail regarding donation of 1000, 000 gbp. From mr, neil trotter lottery.
    I often chat with him on facebook.
    He sent me code number which I had mailed to his new payment manager of faster payment service.
    Then I got mail from faster payment service, they need my personal information.
    One simple question is it true?

    Regards
    Siddharth Bansode, india

    • No, this is not true and the Facebook page – there are (or were) many Neil Trotter profiles, do a search, is a fake.

      The likelihood is that entering your personal information, including your bank account details, and then giving a confirmation code will result in money being withdrawn from which ever bank or payment service you nominate, not in money being paid to you.

      The whole thing is a scam, through and through.
