Beware of Facebook Online International Lottery Scams

The email messages below with the subject: "Facebook Online International Lottery," are lottery scams. If you have received the same email messages that claim that you are a winner of the Facebook Lottery, please note that the email messages are scams. Facebook is currently not promoting any lottery games or sweepstakes. I am tired of all these email lottery scams, and want people to know that they should never respond to any email message asking for personal information, financial information or money.

Please continue below.

    • Posted: Nov 23, 2017 by info

      It is a scam. There is NO Facebook lottery so there is no need to find out if she works for Facebook or not. Never send money to anyone who asks you to do so in order to receive a lottery prize. This is how scammers steal their victims' money.

He wanted my name number email and a couple of other things. So I immediately pulled up FB winnings even though I knew it was a scam.

    I received a message on facebook purporting to come from one of my friends asking if I had been lucky as he had in winning the facebook lottery for USD 150,000. I said that I have not heard and "he" told me to contact Mary Ann Burgess to claim mine as he had seen my name on the list of winners.

    "He" said that he had received his winning cheque via UPS, having paid USD 1500 for delivery and administration fees. I contacted Mary Ann Burgess and was told the same thing. I have not sent the money. This is another scam.

    Apparently I am the winner of a Facebook promotion. I know it's a scam but they are using Mark Zuckerburgs name! I go through this once a month and I'm sick and tired of being told I am a winner of money that in the end I will not get and believe me I really wish it was true cause financially, I'm drowning I'm taking care of my dying husband and these people just don't care who they are scamming!

    I play their game until I tell them they are not getting money from me and if I won the only info they need is my name to put on the check and my address to send it then as quickly as they pop up on my message part of my Facebook is as quickly as they disappear!

    Someone really needs to put a stop to this! Advice to everyone never give out your info and if it sounds to good to be true then it is!

    Someone hacked an Egg Buddies friend's account (Charlene Laukka) and sent me this message: "Have you heard about the Government and the founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg who help hearing ,deafs, disable, retired and some other facebook users? The promotion was made to some facebook user in other to benefit from them its a randomly picked of profile on facebook $150,000.00. UPS delivered the money to my door step. I saw your name on the list with the shipping company agent. do u know how to get intouch wit them to get yours from them bcos I saw ur name on the list when the shipping agent bring the money to me. u will have to contact them first so they can locate ur destination to bring u the money as they did. they cant get intouch wit u if u didnt contact them your self."

    I then asked how to get in touch with them. The response....

    "https://www.facebook.com /diane.mary.501
    Diane Mary

    Did u message her now?

    Diane Mary
    That is the way u going to contact them , and let her know I told u about it that u ready to claim urs"

    This is an obvious scam, so do not get taken in by it. Let your friends know when your account has been hacked. So, of course, I unfriended the scammer and life goes on.

    I was contacted several day's ago by a Nesterr Debra Ethridge who said the works at the FB head office. She said I was one of 6 lucky winners of 500,000 In order to claim my winnings,I had to wire a courier company $300 for the very special delivery.

    I've never heard of this scam before so I wired the money and sent a picture of the receipt to her. A day later she contacts me again and tells me that the Department of Homeland Security has seized my winnings and I will have to pay $2000 and contact Mr Jeh Johnson to have them released to me. I had already applied for a loan from an online company because I was unable to pay for my mortgage after sending them the 300.O0.

    The bank manager froze my account because he found out the loan company obtained the money illegally. Now I'm receiving death threats from them. Meanwhile this Facebook lady miraculously dropped the claim fees to $ 1000. I am a disabled grandmother on Social Security. They all have been reported.

      I was contacted by supposedly one of my friends through FB message - saying she had won money from a FB lottery and she wanted to share the info with me knowing I was also a widow and having a hard time. All I had to do was pay $1000 for fees and I would receive $100,000.00.

      I should have know better, but I trusted her. After I sent the money I started getting worried that I had messed up and messaged her back and got a phone number to contact to ask questions and then they e-mailed a certificate showing I had won and it would be delivered the next day - then I get this text from 612-276-2656 telling me the truck had broke down and that the money would now have to come out of Canada and it would take another 2 days - and then I get a text saying that the IRS in Canada had stopped her and she needed another $1000, and I said I have no more money.

      So I get another message saying that if I will just send $150 for her gas she will take care of the taxes. Like someone really stupid I sent that. Then I was given a UPS tracking number that was suppose to let me tract the shipment. That didn't even make sense so I tracked it and it was going to San Antonio, TX. But they continue to message me saying all kinds of things that I am still getting money.

      Was suppose to be delivered this morning. And this morning I get no messages so I start messaging this person and finally I get a message back saying that the person "RENEE TUCK" HAS BEEN IN A BAD ACCIDENT AND IS IN A COMA. I THEN WENT BACK AND FORTH TELLING THE PERSON THAT IS SENDING ME THE MESSAGES WHO SAYS HE IS A DOCTOR. HE EVEN SENT ME PICTURES OF A PERSON THAT IS ON LIFE SUPPORT! THIS IS A TOTAL SCAM.

He said it is a Financial Help company for Publishers Clearing House for selected Facebook users. And, it is generating money from the government as part of the Facebook Company help program.

      It's the same identical first part. I was messaged from my friend stating she got $200,000,00 a few weeks ago, and said I was a winner too and how to Facebook friends, then message the man.

      Once the scammers receive your personal information, they will use the information or sell it to other scammers. Scammers use personal information to contact and convince their potential victims in sending money, claiming the money is for taxes, shipping cost, legal or other fees. Once the victims have sent the money(usually via Western Union or MoneyGram) thinking they will receive their prizes, the scammers will disappear, or may continue to trick the victims into sending more.

      People have asked me how scammers and spammers were able to get a hold of their information; not remembering that they were the one who sent the information to the same scammers.

    I was contacted on Facebook several months ago by a Ncolene Massie informing me I had just won $500,000.00 but I should send her $350.00 and she would,being a Facebook lottery rep,release my winnings of course I reported her,blocked her and kept the message..SO,they are still reviewing the report,while she deleted her account and opened a new one without the "e" at the end of her name. If you enter her name on search,she is the 2nd and 3rd profile.

    I was also contacted by a representative that said they World for the Department of Health & Human Services. By the name of Fredrick Johnny which was odd to begin with because this person has two first names. However, he contacted me basically thru my Aunt which I was already friends with, so I just thought that she reactivated her page but first of all I received a message from her stating that I was amongst the winners who were selected to receive 300,000 in cash as long as it was expressed to the agent Fredrick Johnny that was handling my case.

    So in that message it also stated for me to contact him thru text which isn't professional to be handling such a large amount of money. But by the message being sent thru my Aunt I did think it was real because she's a Christian woman. So I did contact the representative but when I would ask personal information like how would I contact his company for further information regarding this winning he never would respond. So I looked the area code up the call came from Texas then it changed and he started calling from another number which was MissourI & Wisconsin.

    Then when I went back thru my messages they were deleted of all his messages that had been sent thru my Aunt. So that was a BIG CLUE as well. So then I contacted the Department of Health & Human Services & WCAB which he also said he worked for so I could get confirmation if this was an actually person.

    But just to finish my story, no one was verified, not a case nor file. So just be aware of these people trying to get someone to send them money because they told me I had to Money gram 1,000 for processing files then my $300,000 would be delivered within 9hrs at my doorstep by a UPS carrier. This is so BOGUS.

        Facebook and other large online companies are working to stop fraudulent activities on the internet, but they won't be to stop all fraudulent activities. They spend billions cracking down on illegal activities on the internet every year. But, as they take down fraudulent webpages, posts, computer servers and other internet equipment, scammers or cyber-criminals continue to create more fraudulent websites and set up computer servers in countries where it is hard or impossible to prosecute them. That is why it is important to educate people about scams, so they may help themselves.

      We are not able to stop scammers on Facebook, it is Facebook responsibility to do so. What we can do is educate the general public, so they do not fall victims to the scammers.

      Please use Facebook's 'Report Spam or Abuse' tool to report it to them. They will terminate the account of the user. But, as one account is removed, hundreds of others will be created, so it is virtually impossible for Facebook to stop all those scammers. So, educating you about scams and other online threats, is the most effective way of preventing you and others from falling victims to scammers.

    They are trying to get me with this scam right now, but they say I won 500 thousand dollars. Ha... I have already sent them 100 dollars and they want 370 more dollars.

    I knew it is a scam ... but at least its only 100 dollars and not more. They are very convincing , so please don't fall for it.

    They acting like the FBI and pretending to be ligit, but that's a scam too . I was talking to what is supposed to be a girl named Cortez Marlrnr.

    When I open my FB today there was a message that states: "click here," when I clicked there was another message that states: "Congratulation you Won FB loyal prize". THere was an option to choose iPhone.

    Is this true. There were some comments that I read that said it's true.

      It is not true, it is a scam. There is no FB loyal prize, lottery or sweepstakes.

    Just received the same thing from a Hannah Beaugez who says that I have won $500,000 out of their lottery.


    It already seemed suspicious when she called Zuckereburg Mr. Mark and kept misspelling words. This was the email she said to send my info to ( facebookonlineclaim_price @live.com )

    You can see how "prize" is misspelled and @ live is at the end.

    Here is the full message:

    "I am delighted to inform you that your name was luckily selected among the 5 lucky winners who won the sum of $500,000
    United State Dollars on the Facebook online promo that was conducted by the Facebook officials in order to SAY A BIG THANK YOU to all our users for making the Facebook social networking their ways of sending and receiving messages from their friends and family all over the world...

    Furthermore, You're advise to contact the Facebook Head Office via to complete your winning certificate and for further information regarding the disbursement of your lottery win.
    Do contact them with this Information stated below? FULL NAME and CONTACTED ADDRESS with your MOBILE CELL NUMBER?"

      With so many photo editing program such as Serif Photoplus, Adobe Photoshop, etc... These are people who are holding legitimate checks from legitimate companies and the scammer knows how to manipulate these photos to look like they are holding a FB lottery check and adding the FB logo on them.

    I was also friended by Allison Kristy Lordo. They said I won $250,000. Gave my info. She directed me to David Alfredo. Who then directed me to Carlos Sergio from FedEx.

    They needed a pic of my license in order to send my winnings. And some $ of course for fees (shipping, insurance,etc) $360-560.

    So glad I didn't have that to send!!! But did send the pic! I didn't stop and think.

    What can be done now?

    I am also from big rapids Michigan. I was just informed from somebody claiming to work for Facebook that I won $500,000 but I had to pay $250 transfer fee to even have it wired to my debit card.

    She says it's real and that even the FBI knows about the giveaway. Whatever. By the way it wasn't an email it was a conversation on Facebook messaging

    Was contacted by Kristy Lordo claiming to be an employee of facebook. She told me I was a Facebook lottery winner I gave here my name address ect. Then she said I needed to pay $470 to IRS before I could get my check from Facebook. She was very convincing but I never give money to anyone without checking things out first so at least she didn't get anything but my email address and name good luck with that

    I just received this solicitation this morning....early! These people have zero command of the English language! I wish I could lead them straight to jail and I am actually working on it now. It's funny how they give themselves away by saying many times that this is not a scam. May they get absolutely nothing from the people they are targeting.
