    Good afternoon,

    Regarding the letter I received captioned "BonoLoto.Es,? I immediately checked

    their "affiliation" at Once.Es. My search through this site shows no mention of BonoLoto. Nor is there any sign of BonoLoto at the site of the address shown

    as Calle del Leon 13, Madrid 2814.

    I have not bothered to check with the Spanish Government Lottery Board or any other site shown in the letter, since my few searches have already produced NO trace of this so-called entity called BonoLoto.Es.

    What information do you have regarding this BonoLoto.Es and its letter to me informing me of a money award in the millions of US dollars?

    Cordial saludo,

    Prof. Schultz

      I received the EXACT same info on September 11, 2018: $4,500,000.00 in the BonoLoto.Es, phone number and email is even the same as you stated.

      My ticket no# is 025-21-464-992-950. My claim agent is also Dr. Jacob Creek, who is the manager of SAFEWAY SA. MADRID.

      I don't know about you but I get at least one or more of these scams, through the mail or internet, weekly. They must be making money or else they wouldn't be in business...very, very sad....

      I am also not afraid to give my location as I doubt one more scammer will make a difference :-) I am located in Akron, Ohio. Good luck out there to all!! If you haven't made your own money, no one, absolutely NO ONE,is going to give it to you!

    why did we get this letter saying we won a big amount of money when this says it is a scam.

    I don't understand why people want to get everyone excited thinking they have won a big amount and get nothing this is hard on a old person heart so if we didn't win anything and this is a scam like this says.

    Please don't send no more...

    I have just received a letter saying that I have won bonoloto at amount of 4.5 million dollars. Letter came on 29, April, 2018, from bonoloto president Raul Martinez who has instructed me to contact agent Gerry Johnson in order to process my winning cheque and send it to my united States of America address.

    My father received such a message and they give a claim number, batch # and phone number to call. They even give a name: Carlos Smith to contact who is a foreign Service representative working for a company called "Union Security Company".

    We are supposed to call them if we can not take a trip to Madrid Spain to pick up our winnings. Of course, there is a fee for sending the winnings directly to us. The feels and smells like a scam, especially since my father never played that particular game with the Spain.
