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.

Always remember .......

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

since 2007, I am receiving messages from my emails that i have won freelotto 3 times, since i dont have my credit cards, the winning prize remains unclaimed until now. and if i really won the freelotto lottery, sure all they have to do is to verify the true recipient winner, then award to them the prize. please help...

one can ask him self some questions, who are those guys who represent the freelotto company? how can they do their scams throuh the world wide ? could not they be reached by justice so as to free the innocent from their fraudulent behaviour? they must be some one and they must be living on earth! from where do they get such restless energy for writting victims for ever without getting tired of writting?!!

I joined the FreeLotto one month ago and am surprised to receive a 1 Million US Dollar check signed by Patrick J Chalmers with check number M98211.

I come from a poor family background and was surprised with the check. I also see people’s name that also have won and were paid. I’m sitting on a fence now.

Further, I do not have an international credit card but a local one which I use in my country - Papua New Guinea. With this check presented through email, I do not know what to do but just waiting to see if it’s going to really work out.

Please advice and comment.
