Fraudsters pose as Coulsdon Lottery winner Neil Trotter in money scam attempt

FRAUDSTERS are impersonating Coulsdon Lottery multi-millionaire Neil Trotter in order to con victims out of cash and personal details.

Scam e-mails pretending to be from the EuroMillions jackpot winner tell recipients he will give them "One Million Great Britain Pounds" and asks them to respond to an e-mail address.

Action Fraud has warned any response could be used to commit identity fraud, while the scammers will also likely demand a "fee" to transfer the fictitious money.

Mr Trotter, 41, of Chipstead Valley Road, went public with his £107.9 million on the EuroMillions in March, saying the sum was simply "too large" to hide.

An Action Fraud spokesman said similar scams exploited previous lottery winners, including record winners Colin and Chris Weir.

Action Fraud, the UK's national fraud reporting centre, is asking anyone who has received the e-mail to delete it and report it to them, via www.actionfraud.police.uk
