"Facebook Freedom Award Lottery Promotion Agency" Scams

Facebook Freedom Award Lottery Promotion Agency Scams

The Facebook Freedom Lottery is a scam. Thousands of persons are receiving messages claiming that their names are on the Facebook Freedom Lottery (FFL) or Freedom Award Lottery Promotion Agency winners list. But, there is no Facebook lottery, and there has never been one. Therefore, Facebook users should ignore or delete any message that they have received claiming that they are Facebook lottery winners. And, Facebook users should never send money or personal information anyone in order to receive lottery prizes. Legitimate lottery companies do not ask their winners to send money or send personal information via email or social media in order to collect prizes.

Always remember this golden rule: if you are asked to send money in order to receive money (your prize), it is a scam. And the website fraudulent website www.fedempowerment.com should never be visited.

    Facebook User Luther Wright from Jersey City sent me that message and was very pushy about me not receiving my $2500,00 and when I told him to stop scamming and get off my page? He got very rude and cursed at me. I believe he is doing this to several other people. So beware of this scam cause it is real and he is pushing it...

    I receive a winner list name throughout Hangout App about the same thing together with Facebook, but this time is with Micheal Hanes talking through a text and he same me a picture of a FBI label called"Notice to all Facebook Lottery Winnners", where it said that the money extra is for the third party to send the money.

    Can you let me know about this? because I was trying to find information about this and I found out that my friend put all my information without telling me and I do not want to be part of an Identity Theft or where another will use my information.

  • August 13, 2018 at 4:11 PM by an anonymous user from: Denver, Colorado, United States

    I got a message from a friend saying that we had won money and I should send a friend request to Mark Williams through a link. I soon received a message from Mark Williams saying that he would check the list to see if my name was on it. Sure enough, it was.

    After a couple of more messages, said that I needed to send $1000 to a UPS manager that was in South Africa collecting money for starving orphans by Western Union and he would authorize the delivery of my $2000000 within 12 hrs. I started asking questions and he sent me pictures of PCH winners, how convenient.

    He has gotten quite annoyed with me because I haven’t sent the money so that I can receive the delivery of my winnings. I asked why it mattered to him and he didn’t respond, just said, send the money. Of course, I am not sending any money. I just wish that I could let him know how ridiculous he is. I am not paying money to get winnings that I didn’t win.

    I am being scammed. This lady said she works with Facebook. And she said I won $1.5 Million. She said the computer pick my name. Plus she won't give me the right FedEx company. She gives me the drivers number. And I know they don't give their numbers out. Does this lady work for Facebook?

    The lady is using this name Marissa Nicole Ostrander. Is she real or fake. They want me to send money to FedEx $750.00 . She said she works for general Agent in facebook. I am sick of scammers and hackers on my Facebook page.

    • June 11, 2018 at 4:45 PM by info

      She is a fake. There is no Facebook lottery or promotion, so please do not send your money to the scammers or thieves.

  • April 21, 2018 at 11:44 PM by an anonymous user from: Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

    They asked me to pay $650 dollars on iTunes to be approved & then another 2 thousand to process the Certificate. That is a scam. A lady I don't know at all kept asking if I received my winnings & I said no because I have to pay for it.

    It has left me short on rent. Keep away from Michael Lane they kept promising me after I pay 650 of itunes. Guess what a hidden cost of $2000 dollars to process Certificate. Don't trust this B*****d & saying he is trying hard for me what utter rubbish.

      It is a scam or fake. Do not send any more information. And, they will ask you send money before you can get your so-called lottery prize. Do not be fooled or let them trick you.

      It is a scam. THere is no Facebook lottery and once you asked to send money in order to receive a lottery prize, it is a scam.

  • May 20, 2017 at 5:23 PM by an anonymous user from: Auckland, New Zealand

    HI, a cousin of mine msg me about his winnings from Facebook Freedom award promo of $100,000,00 he claimed he saw my name on the list and asked me to contact a James Mark John to claim my Award. I was trying to think why would my name be on this list. I remembered entering a lottery some months prior so I contacted this guy. He gave his details of who he was etc, he checked this list said my name was there and mentioned the lotto numbers I had done.

    I wasn't sure actually I have forgotten about that lottery but he asked for my details no accounts only photo ID name address etc. Then he asked if my cousin mentioned a fee that I would have to pay I said yes now I have not sent any money to him. He says when I'm in the store with the money he will contact me where to send it. I do not intend sending anything to him. My question is, I gave my details like address, facebook password, email address, DoB, photo ID copy of drivers license. What do I do about this please advise me. He messaged me still I haven't answered.

    • May 20, 2017 at 7:22 PM by info

      Report the matter to the police since you have sent them your drivers' license. Do not let them steal your identity. Also, change your Facebook password before the scammers hijack it.

  • May 11, 2017 at 5:06 AM by an anonymous user from: Auckland, New Zealand

    Hi, a woman friended me telling me she saw my name on a winners list that I should contact facebook claims officer Mr. Michael Hamizlee to claim my winning prize of $400,00 in a facebook seasonal awards lottery promotion. I filled out a form giving Mr. Michael hamizlee my personal details.

    Sent money to claim my winning money realized I was being made to keep sending money. I started to ask a question to the claims officer, also the woman who friended me to tell me about this seasonal awards lottery promotion as by now I was getting asked for a bigger amount money to send so I could claim my winning money.

    I then started making my own inquiries started believing this was a scam, looked into FedEx co. who was to deliver my winning money, we would email only, finally asked the claims officer if he could return my money in goodwill and I would send money back.

    Throughout I was warned that I could not tell anyone about this winning money. I went back to the bank reported the money I sent, but the money was received so I in return could not get my money. I was advised to report this to the police. The receptionist said that there was nothing the police could do. She suggested I go to a website netsafe and comment on their website, get information about scams.

    How can I protect myself from when I have given so many details. A way forward would really help. These people are still contacting me right up till now somehow so I will have to try to block them (scammers).

    • May 11, 2017 at 6:17 AM by info

      I sorry to hear that you have been scammed and thank you for reporting it here. Your information will help prevent others from becoming victims of those scammers.

      Remember, once you are asked to send money in order to receive a lottery prize, it is a scam. Therefore, never send money to receive a lottery prize.

      If the scammers continue to contact you, just ignore them and as you have said, try blocking them. Also, remember the scammers cannot rob or steal your money unless you send it to them.

      • May 24, 2017 at 7:06 PM by an anonymous user from: Auckland, New Zealand

        This has happened to me too and they are still in touch with me although I block them the same Michael Hamizlee and Tania Mathew.

    I got a message on Facebook messenger from one of my friends saying they got $100,000 from this lottery and said that my name was on the list. He told me to text this number: 7314510974. Obviously, I didn't and decided to look this up. This info is just FYI to see how they try to get you. I think my friend has been hacked and I've been trying to contact the real person to let them know.

  • April 9, 2017 at 2:21 PM by an anonymous user from: Birmingham, England, United Kingdom

    I just received an identical message from someone who said "Have you heard about the good news? I won $80,000 in the Facebook Freedom Lottery. They gave it to me for support and I wondered if they could give it to you because I saw your name on the list"!

    Hmmmmm I wasn't brought down in the last shower!

    • March 2, 2017 at 4:22 PM by info

      The message was not sent by your girlfriend. It seems scammers may have hacked into her account and is using it fraudulently to trick her friends into falling for their scams. Try calling your girlfriend on the phone to verify.

    I had a friend on Facebook pressure me to contact a Brenda Pike today (I assume my friend's account was hacked). Here is the profile Brenda Pike is currently using:

    https://www.facebook.com /pike.brenda23

    Watch out.. the lottery winnings this profile is offering are a scam.

  • October 6, 2016 at 6:59 PM by an anonymous user from: Needham, Massachusetts, United States

    I was contact by Brenda Jean Pike, she said she was from the Facebook Freedom money award and I needed to contact her to claim my free money. Of course, I was a little scared to do anything with her but I did ask a few questions. I told her that I didn't trust her that I thought it was a scam and I didn't want to be hacked. And she said that this was a government grant for people who was retire, homeless, in debt, or need help. I asked her how I was going to get my money. She said she needed some personnel information first. My full name, mailing address, date of birth, which I gave her.

    Then she said she needed my phone number for a text message. And ask for a photo ID of my license. That is where I stopped answering her I told her I couldn't send her a picture ID my phone had die and it was on the charger and I would sent her my ID after work. I never did today because I went to my bank to see if this was a scam. And they told me it sounded like it was and the best thing for me to do was to block her on my Facebook and my instant messenger which I have done both.

    They also told me to google it to see what I could find out about it. And, I came to your site. Now I wandering is there anything else should I do. I know all the information I gave her she could find on my Facebook page anyways. So I don't think I am in any harm but I just need to know for sure. Can you tell me that. Terry

    I have been contacted several times by so called Facebook claims agents. Problem number one is the contact always is initiated in the VERY early morning like between 2am and 4am. I'm no rocket scientist but I don't think this type of position is keeping those type of hours. Second, the first one (who I let get a little further with me than the others because I was curious about what game was being played) even had Fed-Ex involved being the courier involved in the delivery of the monies (little did she know I am a former Fed-Ex employee).

    She even had bogus cropped pictures from Fed-Ex Commercials showing people receiving packages and giant checks. All I had to do was pay $300 delivery fee for Fed-Ex to deliver the money to me. When I told her that Fed-Ex had no such delivery service in that price range, that her pictures were bogus and I personally knew some high ranking personnel at the company and threatened to turn her information over to them she said "go ahead I'll be here waiting".

    Obviously these people have no fear of getting busted and I think it is a shame. I have had two other attempts well. Both female and both trying to start things off conversationally. BE WARE PEOPLE THEY ARE AFTER YOUR MONEY.

    Someone I know someone who claimed that she received an email from Federal Agency Facebook Freedom Promotion and won $300.000.00. She had to fill in a form through email, and the money was delivered in cash to her house.

    She has banked the money Would this be legal...Said her name was randomly picked through computer and paid out of a fund that is accumulated from games played on Facebook? Like your thoughts please.

    • November 3, 2014 at 8:23 AM by info

      It is a scam. There is no Facebook Freedom Award Lottery and the message you have received was not sent by your friend although it may appear so.

      It seems that your friend's Facebook has been compromised (taken over by cyber-criminals)and scammers are using it to send message to her friends, in order to trick them into sending your information and money.

      Call your friend on the phone and ask her to verify the information that was sent to you.

    They say fedex was going to deliver you package; posing as fedex manager that's what they r doing now.

  • July 24, 2014 at 8:56 PM by an anonymous user from: Perth, Western Australia, Australia

    I have the same problem; firstly Mrs Jessica Fidelis, then by a Larry smith claiming I had won prize money and car.

    Keep asking for money for taxes, delivery, import duties etc.

    If Facebook and government know about these scams, how are they able to continue to scam people using Facebook

    • July 24, 2014 at 9:38 PM by info

      It is virtually impossible to track all activities on the internet, especially Facebook. And, it is so easy for someone to commit cyber-crimes because technology has made it so easy for them to do it, from anywhere in the world.

      So, it is very important that you educate yourself about these scams, so you can protect yourself against them.

      Remember, never send money to claim lottery prizes.

  • July 23, 2014 at 11:38 AM by an anonymous user from: Toronto, Ontario, Canada

    David M Frank,and his phone # is: 1(925)364-5112; his friends are: Tammy Young she lives in Baltimore, and Alimi Wasiu lives in Nigeria; all these guys are scammers and they are very smart.

    They work like a group,their guys are every where in the would,if they say that you win Facebook freedom lottery and ask you send money to whoever they name it,please don't do send it, because it's scam. I hope the FBI will work on this case and clean up these scammers.

  • July 16, 2014 at 10:27 PM by an anonymous user from: Buffalo, New York, United States

    They are still claiming that the Facebook freedom lottery is real .

    I am still being told that there is money waiting in my name to be claimed .today I finally had enough and told the agent that it will have to go unclaimed because I am unable to do my part to claim it .

    This has been on going since the end of May 2014

    • July 16, 2014 at 10:44 PM by info

      Remember, there is no Facebook lottery.

  • July 10, 2014 at 7:56 AM by an anonymous user from: Gardendale, Alabama, United States

    Thes are the names of people who are saying that they work for the company:

    Yemmty G Dommy,

    Jimmy Green,

    Eze Francis.

    And a man stating he is from the Federal Agency of Facebook. I have given them $100 already. So I have gave them my email and my Facebook passwords. They claim that I have to pay IRS for them to release my money.

    They said at first it was 1 million dollars and then it turned to $2,000. Then to 150,000. I still have them on my messages. Can some one call the feds so they can catch these people and help them catch them on their act.

    • July 10, 2014 at 9:32 AM by info

      It is hard to locate them because they are operating in other countries. They can quickly move and set up shop in another countries or location in a few minutes.

      So, this is why we try to educate persons about these scams, they do not fall for them.

  • July 8, 2014 at 10:58 AM by an anonymous user from: Washington, District of Columbia, United States

    We were told we had won 80,000 but had to send 500.00 to moneygram for processing fees. Thank god Moneygram recognized the scam.

    • July 24, 2014 at 10:29 AM by an anonymous user from: Toronto, Ontario, Canada

      Did you get you money back from Money Gram before or after you sent it?

    • July 8, 2014 at 12:34 PM by info

      If you are asked to send money to Western Union or Moneygram in order to receive your lottery prize, it is a scam.

  • June 11, 2014 at 5:58 PM by an anonymous user from: Toronto, Ontario, Canada

    I was contacted by David M Frank from Facebook.

    Freedom lottery...about 2 weeks ago, he told me to send money to claim the prize, and i did ...I paid for fees this and that...seem like every thing is not right and i topped to send money to him.

    OK my friends who use Facebook and see Freedom lottery, don't believe in this, its a big scam... don't believe in this guy (David M Frank)and his partners Alimi Wasiu, Tammy Young and Alimi. Alimi is living in Nigeria. Tammy young is living in Baltimore USA. All these people are big time scam...

    I received a message on Facebook telling me I was on a winners list for money something like 50,000 dollars, but was told I'd have to send them 400 dollars first obvious a scam from a website... WWW.facebook.com /Jennifer.FederalAgent; not buying into it. Like the rule of thumb says, if it sounds to good to be true, chances are it is not.

    • May 8, 2014 at 5:31 PM by info

      Once you are asked to send money in order to receive money, it is a scam.

    I received a message from a fb friend who said they saw my name on the ffl list.told me to email officerperry@ ymail.com. they said if I sent 575 for shipping fees they would send me 150,000,000. And that I would receive it at my doorstep in 6 hours via ups. Since when was UPS given the rights to carry that much money in cash without security? They said they were trying to help the public with poverty.

    I just received a facebook message from a recently added friend (someone I actually know) claiming he had won $100,000 cash from the facebook freedom lottery in collaberation with world international lottery agency company. He then proceeded to inform me that he had seen my name on the list of winners and sent me a link where I could enter to claim my reward. Obviously I did not click on the link, howver I am curious how this message was sent from one of my actual friends.?
