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.

What blows me away is the sponsors on the website. Most of those companies are reputable. I get the free lotto emails and delete them as well, and continue to play the free lotto everyday. However, I read all of these comments, and I am still not sure if there is actually a draw everyday. You get a TSN number when you fill out a ticket. The lotto administrator will ask you for your TSN number if you attempt to claim a prize. Your results are shown everyday, but again. Does anyone know if this company is legit, and with the sponsors on their websites, you would think there has to be an actual drawing each day. I have been researching, and all I can find is the complaints from the emails. At the top of each email, it tells you this email is an ad, and that you signed up for it. If you wanted to be taken off the distribution list, then click on the remove me link. I contacted my attorney, and the emails are a little crooked, but I am interested in investigating if there is actually an opportunity to win, or if I am just wasting my time.

Thanks,
Mike.

I must be gullable cause i too was told that i have won $1 000 000.00 and $300.00 now i was needles to say exstatic cause i am a single mum of two and i am looking after my mom and sister and it is tuff out there. Tuff enough we dont need people like this in the world to make it even worse. I just hope that i didnt make a huge stuff up by giving them my id number not that they can do any thing cause i am from south africa (well at least i hope not). Well i just hope that there is someone out there that can stop them and soon before some one really does get into trouble from this

I am getting mails from freelotto.com (unclaimed department) stating that i have own 1 million dollar, 300 dollar and 1 lac dollar respectively. I am receiving these emails from last 2 yrs but whenever i try to contact them i got unsatisfactory response or no response. Now it seems it is totally a fake organization who cheats the inocent people from all over the world. But when you read the rule of freelotto it appears that it is totally a legal organization. I want to know the facts about freelotto. Kindly tell me what is the facts.

They r cheating us. I also got a e-mail that i won prize and soon it will be at my home. But yet i am waiting and i wont got any prize yet.

I really want to say that many people have been cheated and many have lost a lot. But for example UKLOTTERY MANAGER,MERCY GRAHAM, has been sending notifications to clients telling them that they have won but when you try to get in touch with she block her ways. Now somebody like her should be done away with.

I'm very sure that freelooto is not a serious site. The government need to check most of their dealings. Thank God we do not use credit cards in Nigeria. If not I would have fall victim of such liars Just tell them to stop all their mails to me if not Sango, Obatala including Esu will struck them to death.

Over 6 million Americans are unemployed. If online stay at home business is a good idea then the rest of the world must be so gullible to give and then later wished that they never joined in the first place. Ask God if there is a good idea to get rid of unemployment. Satan calls it scamming: an evil alternative to donations.

Winning a Prize and sending message about winning matter are also a not a matter. But If the winner is right person he/she should receive the prize whatever acceptable problems encountered ie time of delay to claim the prize etc. Penalty can paid for delay. But the Right /Eligible person should not lose his prize. Then only there is a meaning for winning the prize/announcing the prize. without receiving the prize how can i tell to my friends and colleges? If i told them like this " I won but due to time delay i loss 75 million dollars of cash prize " don't they laugh at me.

I have forgotten my TSN, does this mean I am not eligible in claiming my prize. The check is already written and waiting for this TSN and I should claim the check within 30 days.
