Just another lottery scam!

Complaint Rating:  87 % with 456 votes
I am a Senior Fraud Victim Advocate with Fraudaid.org , first of all what you have experienced is what we call a Fake Lottery Scam. It is designed for one purpose only and that is to get innocent and unsuspecting people involved in the fantasy of winning a ton of money. They use this scam to do one of two things:

Launder money by sending you a check with your winnings letter and instructing you to depsosit the check and send off a portion of it to pay so called fees and taxes to free up your winnings OR for the purpose of getting you to pay advanced fees to gain access to your winnings. Here are the cold hard facts:

1. If you did not purchase a lottery ticket , you could not have won that lottery. Why? Lotteries only exist on the money gained through the sale of tickets. The money they get from people purchasing tickets IS the money or at least a portion of that money that is dished out in winnings.

2. IF you have gotten a surprise winning notification and a check from a lottery company you had better verify that the lottery is real and that the check was indeed issued to you by the " Account Holder". Most likely that check is Counterfeit and you can wind up in a heap of trouble either with your bank or legally if you cash it.

NEVER EVER send money to anyone you do not know via services like Western Union, Money Gram etc based on a sales pitch or promise. Those services are widely used to scam people out of hard earned money. Why? Simply put... once that money is sent and picked up at the other end there is NO way to retrieve it or to recover your losses.

For more information on scams and how to protect yourself visit us at www.fraudaid.org What you do not know can hurt you.

Always remember .......

Silence is a thief's best friend..... word-of-mouth is his worst enemy! Spread the word.

How do I know that you are not yet another false representative of Lotto?

I need advice, so there is no lotto that can be played through the net? One has to buy a physical ticket? What about the GreenCard Lottery that we are seeing on the Net? Advise.

my name is currently on the freelotto pending ticket, i did not realise what was going on when i signed on, As soon as i signed up a fraud alert flashed up, it would be nice if this kind of alert was in place before taking such SCAMS, I am now going to sit back and watch.

If you are getting email after relentless email, do what I did. I created a filter so that all emails with the words freelotto gets forwarded to:

PrizeSupervisor@freelotto.com
Results@freelotto.com
MembershipDirector@freelotto.com
Winners@freelotto.com
offers@freelotto.com
domreg@freelotto.com

So now I don't get emails from them because as soon as one is sent to me, it gets forwarded to the emails above instead. If everyone created filters like this, they would be overwhelmed and would have to close those email accounts and hopefully the website too.

I also thought it was B.S. but read the congradulatory email carefully. It says you have won UPON submission of the correct numbers. I always had checked the results and did not match the numbers completely. so how could i have won? I did not..cuz it says UPON submission of correct numbers. beware of signing up for FAST play..once they have your card number its tough to get off it. and..no phone number to contact them?
