Facebook Lottery Scam Email - Facebook Online International Lottery

If you receive any email messages claiming that you are a winner in any Facebook lottery, please note that this is scam. Facebook is currently not promoting any lottery games and will only do so on their website at wwww.Facebook.com. I am tired of all these email lottery scams and want persons to know that they should never respond to any email message asking for personal information.

Here is a copy of the "Facebook Lottery Scam" email

Why would Facebook use a Gmail account instead of one of their own e-mail accounts like facebookwinnersdepartment11 @facebook.com? The answer is, they would, but the abovementioned e-mail message is a scam and the scammers created the fake Gmail e-mail address for the victims to send their personal information.

If you asked to send personal information to any of the free e-mail service providers like Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail or others, please do not. Anyone can create an e-mail account at these free e-mail providers and use it for malicious purposes.

    I had a new friend request from my sister-in-law, who should already be on my friends list (should have checked before I accepted) and whoever started a chat with me, how are you, etc. and told me she won $20,000, and then told me I was on the powerball list too. They stopped chatting when I asked who they were. I'm going to have to unfriend her - does that mean that her facebook account has been compromised? What does she need to do?


    • info: 1 week, 4 days ago

      There is nothing wrong with your friend's Facebook account. What you have experienced is cybercriminals attempting to trick you into accepting a bogus friend request from a fake profile that they have created using your friend's Facebook public information.

      This trick or technique is called Profile Cloning. Click here for more information about it.

    I just got a friend request from a friend WHO HAD BEEN ALREADY A FRIEND ON MY FACEBOOK. Had a conversation with her, well what I think is her. Then starts going on about this promotion of winning $100,000 and that she and 5 of her other friends already won and got their money. That I was to add or message a Mr Kelly Thompson who is the agent who is handling all this stuff and gave me this link to add him or whatever. This is EXACTLY what was sent to me from my friends name: "All you need to do is to talk to Mr Kelly Thompson the facebook claim agent he will tell you what to do to get the money click on this link now to add him https://www.facebook.com/ profile.php?id=100006029040080 Add him or you Message him I told you that your name was on the winners list and you are ready to claim you winning money".

    I WANT to believe it but I AM NOT THIS LUCKY, EVEN THOUGH I REALLY WANT IT TO BE TRUE. I chose to stop talking and immediately was trying to get in touch with her and had no luck.

    I wont even click on that link to see where it takes me because I dont want to risk viruses. It is bad enough they could have my other information from my page.

      This happened to me an hour ago.My friend said he had 50,000 delivered to his house by UPS...yeah,right! To text this number and they will come to my house to fill out papers.I texted it and they want info like my credit score and where I work and how much I make...this is an identity thief I believe...I'm not responding to anything...My friend needs to show me his banks deposit slip before I believe any of it.

    I was contacted yesterday while on Facebook by a person claiming to be working for Facebook with this exact same information. Is this also a scam when approached on Facebook? I have their names also.

    I have been taken in by this scam. They only got me for $280.00. Have been trying t convince myself that some company is holding the check, worth $300,000.00 in my name for insurance purposes. I needed to send them an extra $1250.00 in order for it to be delivered to my doorstep! I am so glad that I have out the truth. I received same type of email from the office of mark Zuckerberg saying this is real and at the bottom was Mr.Zuckersberg picture. no refund because one of the agents had already picked it up and gave to the delivery company. This was paying for gas and two or three other things for the delivery company to bring the check to my doorsteps. I will never be fooled again. The person talking to me was Mary Marcus,a young lady with her hometown as Ontario, California. First time and last time.

    PEOPLE THIS IS A SCAM ALERT.

    If you receive a private message, email, or post from anyone, especially a friend claiming that they have won money and so have you and includes this link "http://www.facebook.com/lottoonlineagent" Do One of Two Things. Either take the easy way out and just ignore it; or Report it {but not your friend because they are being scammed too} to Facebook and notify your friend that their name and Facebook account is being used to spread this scam. When you first go to the link you will even see names of winners who you know, but as soon as you hit to request friend of the agent you never see anyone you know again. I need to lay back down because of the neck procedures today, but had to get this guy blocked and notify Facebook and my friends about this scam using Facebook and friends.

    Here is how my friend notified me:
    --------------------------------------------------
    hello how are you doing today
    hello
    Hi, sorry I'm very sleepy from a neck injection procedure today
    Glad to hear from you. Thought I never would
    i have a good news for you that is why i contacted you on here and dont know if you have heard of it
    have you heard about the poker lottery game?
    yes glad to hear from you too
    i have a good news for you that is why i contacted you on here and dont know if you have heard of it
    What is the good news
    have you heard about the poker lottery game?
    .
    No
    You won?
    yes
    The poker company with association with facebook is having lottery promotion ,they use our profile name to enter for the lottery game and our name is among the winners list

    Really - so that is very good news for YOU, but how is that good news for me.......lol
    I already got $150,000 from the facebook , i saw your name on the winners list when my money was delivered to me by the ups men at my door step...did you get your money yet?

    No because I've never played the game
    yes you dont have to play that its a random pick on here to eradicate poverty and we are selected as 1 of the lucky winner
    Really, how do you find out if you're a winner, and is this for real or a hoax
    it is for real
    i think you have to contact the online agent and did you know how to do that
    You really got the money?
    No I don't know how
    http://www.facebook.com/lottoonlineagent

    But for $150,000 I'm going to figure it out real quick; thanks for giving me the heads up
    Thanks much
    Hope you're doing we'll. I'll check this out and let you know how this works for me. Thanks much
    you welcome
    Take very good care of yourself
    and you too
    -------------------------------------------------------.
    Now I should have picked up on this, BUT my doctor knocked me out so hard this time, I really didn't know what we were talking about. Now that I have done my duty to try to warn everyone not to be as dumb as I was, I have too go back to sleep


    Where did you see my name and is your name on the site; you must not be able to see much until he approves you friendship request

    When I first clicked on the link I saw former co-worker who won but then couldn't see but a handful of people I never heard of. PEOPLE THIS IS A SCAM ALERT.


    • Anonymous: 1 month, 1 week ago

    Hello, I was IM'd by a woman that I play games with who lives in Australia. She told me that she won $100,000 cash from a FB lottery and that she saw my name on the list, too. She gave me a link to follow, and what do you know? a DHL Fred Hurst informed me that I had indeed won. He asked me for personal info to help securely ID me and then wanted me to pay for certain fees totaling over $1,000.00. I was still writing back and forth w my friend, Lorne, at the time when her language changed. She began to speak a pidgin English, with improper tense and bad or no use of prepositions, that kind of thing....not her usual voice. Told both Mr Hurst and "Lorne" that I would be reporting this to you and to the IRS. Looked on the IRS sweepstakes scam site and saw scams like this all over it.

I has send close to $2000 and then they asked for $5000 more for a certificate. I do not have that kind of money and cleaned out my bank accounts trying to get it all paid. Today I received an email saying if I do not pay them they are going to charge me with money laundering and fraud and press charges against me stating they are going to have me put in jail

    Help what can I do ????

      Trace back when you get your bank statement and report them to the police. They will be able to trace back and possibly make an arrest.


    • info: 3 months, 1 week ago

      If anyone should be charged for fraud is these scammers. Do not let them frighten you into sending more money. And, please do not send money to persons who claimed that you have won the lottery or some other game.


  • info: 3 months, 2 weeks ago

    There is no Facebook lottery, so please DO NOT send your information to anyone, even if they claim that they are from Facebook and are able to show you pictures of persons they claimed have won it.

    I almost got duped this week-end, so i must say for some-one in my position, that really looked like a nice hefty chunk of change, and its so sad how persons like that will take people for a scam for doing nothing and lining their pockets,when the rest of us have to spend hours a day / week and month doing actual work, when I said I only had $50 (R500 -RSA )the messages started becoming more aggressive, to the affect that if I didn't do the deposit they wouldn't be able to drop my cheque of on Sunday and I could go with the diplomatic courier to the bank and draw the rest of the money in exchange of this $950 000.00 cheque, which was also spelt incorrectly, high school kids even younger. Our banks in the RSA are not open on a sunday and they pushed the issue that the courier was on a tight schedule to get the other lottery winners their cheques. They dropped names such as Mark Zuckerberg, Patrick Widen, Lincorn Wave, from who the messages came from, Ethan Connors who initiated the conversation saying that I am a facebook lotto winner, John Buckler,Ali Mathew whose bank details are as follows: Nigeria,Lagos, zip code:23401, oh and lets not forget the cheque I was able to download that had my name on it. I hope you who designed and responsible for facebook can put this information to use and catch these good-for nothing loosers. you who started this scam, you are scum of the earth and if i had an opportunity to say it to your face, i would, but your day will come, your judgement day.

    Franklin Hanks at Facebook_lottery@yahoo.c.o.UK is sending Facebook messages saying people won 500,000. So watch out for him.


  • info: 5 months, 4 weeks ago

    I have actually received an e-mail from Mark Zuckerberg who called himself CEO of Facebook online lottery. I cannot believe I fell for this scam and have actuallly sent them $250 to receive the winning. They are not asking for $1500 to receive the check from I.M.F. or International Monterrey Fund. They are very pushy and continually tell me that once I make the payment of $1500 I will receive my check. I have heard form Mark Zuckerberg, Mike Ingram, who I sent the $250 to and a Patrick Widen. All swearing this is a legitmate lottery and that I will receive the money. Mike Ingram has me send the money to Grenada, Mississpppi and his phone number is 516-441-2640 or 65-352-1350. I have requested the return of my $250, but do not anticipate getting it back, unless you can help me with that.

    I got one that only asked for my address and phone number, which is public record, so I replied. The amount was $100,000.00. Then of course they asked for an insurance and delivery fee, thirty dollars for the delivery and $350 for the insurance fee. I was also given the option of going to their office in person, so I have sent an e-mail asking for directions and will turn in all emails to the authorities.

    I was contacted by a lady named Lisa Hammock and was texted by this number 904-385-3314 saying in order to receive my ATM card with 600 thousand US dollars I have to money gram them 300 dollars and than I got a little suspicious. She also told me not tell any one or share the money with any one and to keep it to my self and that there was only 20 lucky winners. I got several private messages from Facebook from her and several texts and emails from these people. than she kept bugging about when I would get the money and when I would send it. SO PLEASE BECAREFUL AND DO NOT GIVE OUT ALL YOUR INFORMATION.

    I was contacted by a woman named Judy Benson on my facebook account claiming to work for Face Book and telling me that she has vital information to give me - that I had won $600,000.00 random lottery as part of a promo with Face Book. The typing was horrible but at first I was like this could be great if real. Then they started sending me the emails and the typing only got worse. I told them that I had sent a copy of everything to my bank and that we both thought that it was a big scam/fraud but then they keep sending me emails wanting me to choose a delivery method (all of which cost from $300 - $500 before I would get the so called winnings. So I have been trying to get more & more info out of them to turn over to the proper authorities. Their last email told me to send $180 to a Shane Rikerd, Spokane, Washington in Canada. I asked them when Spokane, WA no longer was a part of the United States. They are so desperate to get me to send them money that they keep lowering the amount they want me to send. BOO HOO they are not getting my money!!! People beware!!!!

    I received contact on FB by someone referring to themselves as Camile Hart who works for Facebook, telling me I won $1,000,000 from a selection from the CEO of Facebook and ask me to send $120 via Money Gram or Western Union to Frank Matthews in Chesterfield, MO. This is for shipping my Winning in the form of Debit Card. All the communication is still on my page. Think they are using this ladies name fraudulently.
