British Lotto / Lotto wining

1 United Kingdom Review updated:

Dear General Public: Scam alert.
From: My Dance with the Devil.

Scamming on the net work is getting out hand. I feel the Webpage Owners and the service providers right down to the connection providers, stand up and take more responsibility for their connections. I have been attacked so many times; I have become a vigilante on the internet. I intend to expose as many complete scams as possible. Here is my first exposé.

On November 11th, 2008 I was on the internet looking for some extra work on line and trying the survey avenue to see if they really do pay.( they don’t) I was on a job site applying for a job and I was asked if I would like to do a survey on employment. I was given two options, a lotto ticket, or a make-up kit for my services. I picked the lotto ticket.

On Dec 31st, 2008 I get an email saying I won the Lotto, Please confirm ticket number and security code. They provided a link to the bank for the transfer of funds. Then out comes the official documents (to verify my identity). Then came the request for the upfront fees.
This is where my story gets interesting. I took all the emails I had gotten and reported them to reports@banksafeonline.com.uk . A couple of days later I get an email from the bank saying I did win and I need to pay these funds. The next day I get an email from the FBI stating I did win and here is a special link for my security. Then came the offer for an ATM Card, because I refused to pay any funds upfront, but for a fee upfront as well.
Last but not lest I get another email from the bank telling me because of failure to comply, sign this document freeing them of any legal obligations and allowing them to release the funds back to the lotto foundation.

I have to question why the so called lotto was not checked by the survey provider or by the web page providers; I can point the finger at the search engines security as well. All the way up to the US Department of Justice, It is your Identities and services these predators are using to run their scams. I think it is high time that your stand up and be more responsible, right from the email providers to the connection providers step up your security. It is you that gives the predator the avenue to pray on the general public.

I have set up an identity that I use to expose every step of scams like this one, which by the way should have been legit. I did enter Lotto. I am still not sure if I did win the lotto or not .Was the whole thing just a scam right down to the survey company, where did it start being a scam. What kind of connection do they have to know I reported them and be able to respond accordingly to keep the scam going? Who is responsible for that? I don’t think that we should leave it all on the shoulders of the Law enforcement; Web page owners ask more questions of your advertisers and service providers. Google Yahoo, AIM, after so many reports of scams cut the links. Raise flags for key sentences. Don’t mark them as spam and send them anyway, delete them.

As far as the FBI, the Banks, The Lotto Federation, The ATM Card centers, Hell even the Ministry of Finance, It is your names and Identies these predators are using, is the protection services in that much jeopardy of being compromised. Most of the scam that I was caught in was generated after I reported it as a scam. I didn’t use any of their links, I found my own links to report this directly to the bank that the scam was being run out of (was it in name only, or are they tapped into the banks lines as well, or are some of the banks listed on search engine not real). Who is responsible, how deep of a connections do these predators have, in our banks, our Ministries, our service providers.

In the mean time. I become the predator, waiting and watching so I can expose you and your full “Dance with the devil.” Rest assured that Webpage owners, banks, department, agencies, service providers, you will hear from me. Copies of the emails and documents used by the scammers are attached for every one to see.

To the Scammers:
SHAME ON YOU. MAY KARMA BIT YOU IN THE ###?

I am out there looking for your scam; I will expose you and your methods.
I am of course referring to your “ dance with the devil” You will never know for sure if your dealing with me or not.

    I've been getting the same emails. I just report them as spam. I never reply to them. One thing I do is this: I google the names of the email senders and read about the scams they run. It's good to be aware of these things.

    Their horrible misuse of grammar and their frequent misspellings would've exposed their scam to me a long time ago. You would think that the "British International Lottery" could afford a word processing program with spell checker on it, let alone afford a doctor who knew proper grammar and could spell the word "has" correctly. Thanks for the laugh.
