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.

Je joue a déclaré e-mail freelotto il ya 2/semain lorsque j'ai eu le libre accès à l'Internet et conservés sur des jeux très souvent pendant près d'un an. Ensuite, je me suis arrêté parce que l'accès à Internet est de plus assez pour moi.

Puis, un jour, Iopened ma boîte mail et a trouvé un message me disant que j'avais gagné 1 million de USD et j'ai dû confirmer mon NIP pour le paiement immédiat. J'ai essayé mais comme je n'avez pas et n'ont jamais obtenir une carte de crédit, je ne pouvais pas valider et à tous mes enquêtes ont été automatiquement une réponse. Je me suis dit cela a été une sorte de fraude. mais ils ont gardé l'envoi de message et moi avons fait tous les jours depuis. Et même dire que j'avais gagné 1 milion USD supplémentaires.

C'est la raison pour laquelle j'ai décidé d'écrire une lettre à M. Patrick J. Chambers à demander de quoi il s'agit. Pourquoi le maintien de m'envoyer des messages pour les prix je ne pouvais pas cash.I ne veux pas apparaître comme un miserabilist mais pour quelqu'un unempoyed pour une période aussi longue underdevelopped dans un pays comme lalgerie, il s'agit d'une unstandable la torture mentale, un type sans précédent de harcèlement. Et juste avant d'envoyer plusieur lettre je ne même pas se rappeler comment je obtenir pour ouvrir votre site Web.


PS: Je suis originaire d'un pays francophone et même si j'ai étudié l'anglais au collège, mon libellé mai apparaît étrange à certains d'entre vous. Désolé pour tout problème!

tres cordialement

Thanks for the heads-up on FreeLotto. We lost 3 months of payments out of our credit card. We got suspicious when we wanted to unsubscribe and was informed that we had unclaimed monies i.e. $1 million dollars! Thanks to your organization, we are spared more aggravation by these people.

O Freelotto é uma brincadeira, uma enganação, ninguém ganha prêmio nenhum. É engana trouxas, eles fazem isso para rancar dinheiro das pessoas.

I like getting those emails. I handle them in a number of ways, (My Favorite); I send them an email granting them the power to post any upfront monies to facilitate the collection and disbursement process. I further authorize them to recover 30% of any due monies for their assistance and admirable customer service treatment. And I then request them to remit the balance to me post haste. I get a laugh every time I don't receive any more of those emails.
