Marie Holmes Powerball Jackpot or Lottery Donation Scam

Would you share this Article with others?

The email message below, which claims that Marie Holmes, the 26-year-old single mother from Shallotte, North Carolina who won the $188 million Powerball Jackpot, is donating thousands of dollars to randomly selected people around the world, is a lottery scam. The Powerball Jackpot or lottery winner is not randomly donating money to people around the world and did not sent the email message below. The fake email message was instead sent by scammers. The scammers/cyber-criminals are who are sending out the fake email messages, and who are pretending to be Marie Holmes, are attempting to trick the recipients into sending them their personal information.

Once they (scammers) have received their potential victims’ personal information, they will use the information to trick the potential victims into sending money, which they will claim is for some advance fees, which will cover banking and transfer costs, insurance payments or tax that the potential victims need to pay before they can receive the donated money.

But, if the victims send their money, the scammers will steal it and may continue to trick the victims into sending more money, with the promise of receiving the donated money the scammers claim they would receive. Recipients of the Marie Holmes lottery email scam are asked not to respond to or follow the instructions in it. They should just delete the email message instead.

It is important to remember that when someone contacts you, claiming that you have won the lottery or you are the recipient of millions of dollars, and asks you to send money in order to receive your lottery winnings or prizes, it is a SCAM. Legitimate lottery companies will never ask their winners to send money in order to receive their prizes or winnings. And, why would lottery winners who are allegedly donating millions of dollars to you, want you to send a few hundred or thousand dollars for banking and transfer costs, insurance payments or tax? Well, the money that the scammers want the victims to send, which the scammers claim is for taxes, bank transfer cost, insurance or other expenses, is what the scammers will steal. And, the victims on the other hand, will never receive the winnings, prizes or money that they were promised.

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

The Marie Holmes Powerball or Lottery Donation Scam

From: "Marie Holmes" <holmesmarie945@gmail.com>

Subject: Re: Donor

Let me start by introducing myself properly. I am Mrs Marie Holmes from Shallotte, North Carolina, 26 years old. am a single mother.the link bellow will tell you a little more about me. I have been so indecisive about giving out this donation I just decided to do now. I gladly appreciate your response to the email sent to you by my personal assistant. After thoughtful reasoning I have decided to make voluntary donation of $950,000 USD to randomly selected persons from anywhere in the world. not minding if I know them or not.And you and your family happened to be one of the selected individuals.

I really did not expect a response from you especially due to the rapid scam on the internet and news of people losing their money and homes to fraudsters over the internet with false promises and letters of lottery winnings. I am aware of all these evil deeds in the society in this present age, But considering my present status, I cannot personally go around traveling hours/days to your country and the homes of other two beneficiaries like yourself who are also beneficiaries of my donation, for that reason alone that's why I'm contacting you via email personally to avoid any sort of misconduct.

Considering how evil and selfish people are these days. I don't trust handing over this transaction to anyone at this earliest stage except my pay-out bank, that you will be contacting later on, only after I am satisfied that you can be trusted. My payout bank which is a well trusted bank around the world is the bank i have given the responsibility to handle the transfer and disbursement of donated funds to my church, organizations associated with cerebral palsy, the neurological disorder that afflicts my 7-year-old son, Charity Homes,Communities, and wonderful beneficiaries like yourself.

Although we've just known each other for the first time through an email conversation but I believe our father in heaven as directed me to you. Since I wasn't able to contact you in a more formal and more realistic way I had to ensure that the media took a full video coverage of my Lotto Wins just to prove that my intentions are honest and only focused at making your life and that of your loved ones more comfortable same way I've made the life of my family and that of my loved one’s comfortable. I’m a very shy and modest woman, I don’t have much to say, but I have also provided you some Web links to view below for verification.

Please you can read more about me by viewing the links below;

My donation of $950,000 USD may not be much to you but I believe it will go a long way to improving your standard of life like my lotto Jackpot did to me, I would like you to fill the below details and return back to me and my entire household will be glad for you to visit us after my donation gets to you. Do this on time so you can contact my payout bank for further directives to receive my donated funds.

Name:
Address:
Age:
Sex:
Occupation:
Nationality:
Tel:

Country of Residence:

May the Good lord bless your heart to be a blessing to your family and your society as soon as my donation gets to you? Don’t blame me for keeping this donation low key, i just don’t want anyone to start hurting innocent people out there with my good name .am just trying to be very cautious.

God Bless You.

Marie Holmes

    Thank you for directing your response to us, i am Marie Holmes. A 26-year-old single mother of four kids from the town of Charlotte, North Carolina,am very happy i received your response, I was one of the three $188 million winner of the $564 million jackpot, am so happy that am rich now after too many struggle, i ran outside and screamed when i realized i won. i said i made it. i was fixing breakfast for my kids the day after the Feb. 11 drawing when i saw the winning numbers on Facebook. I just happened to check my Facebook and my friend had a post up with the numbers on it so I looked at the numbers and I had my numbers in my hand and I was like these are the same numbers on my ticket, OMG!!!. Then I started screaming and my kids ran away from me and I really scared them. my mom who purchased the winning ticket for me on her way to church, was the first person i called. Once she double-checked the numbers on her phone, she was convinced because she saw the numbers in person, but the rest of my family did not believe i won the $564.1 million jackpot, the fifth largest lottery prize in U.S. history.

    I thought I was going to have a heart attack when I saw the ticket and checked it, i was forced to quit my jobs at Wal-Mart and McDonald's to care for my four children, one of whom has cerebral palsy. My plan is to donate to my church, buy a new house and set up college funds for the kids and donate 2 million dollars to six individuals and organizations associated with cerebral palsy and charity homes in troubled countries before my donation go wide and spread over the internet scams and fraudulent acts.i know you will be thinking how i picked you and got your email, your email was selected randomly from Google team and i believe GOD picked you for this donation just to bless your family like mine.

    Hello Jocelyn

    Let me start by introducing myself properly. I am Ms Marie Holmes from Shallotte, North Carolina, 27 years old. The link bellow will tell you a little more about me. I have been so indecisive about giving out this gift/donation I just decided to do it now that I am a little free to. I gladly appreciate your response to the message sent to you by my agent. After thoughtful reasoning I have decided to make voluntary donation of $1.500,000.00 (One Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars) to a randomly selected person in the USA, because I will be traveling to different country outside the USA for charity service. And you happen to be the lucky one.

The Fiduciary/Security Vault will be responsible to handle the disbursement of donated funds to you and organizations associated with cerebral palsy, the neurological disorder that afflicts my 7-year-old son, Charity Homes,Communities.

    The bulk of the funds to be shared are deposited with The Fiduciary/Security Vault, I have voluntarily given out $1,500,000 solely to you. And I am hoping that you will definitely be able to use this fund wisely and judiciously on projects that will last you for a long time.

    To facilitate the disbursement process of the funds and all the legal documents that will be signed, entitled to you, the below details will be needed as to enable my Attorney Barrister Leslie Thomas QC.complete the release process to you.

    To Whom it May Concern:

    I wanted to contact you about an exchange that has happened with me over the past few days. It is surprising the way it played out, and after my own research, I've definitely decided it needed to be alerted. The actual start to the scam reached me through text message, this part I have yet to figure out how, because the sender subject was not an unknown number, but rather an email address. Attached is a screen shot of what I received. At first I ignored it, believing it to be a scam or mistake, but being a student who had applied for a grant a few months ago, thought it could possibly be related and decided to contact the email, not knowing anything about Marie Holmes.

    Below is the first email contact, and then the second regarding my response. Also attached is the "Letter of Authorization" which I believe is a forgery. I have attempted to contact both the original email sender in the text message (which I found belonged to a professor of anatomy at a Canadian University) and the actual High Court of Delhi through their website, both with no response.

    I have yet to provide any personal information other than my name and the state in which I currently reside (not the state where my permanent address is located and not any address or phone number given). If I get any more responses relating to this scam I will be sure to send a follow up email.

    I had the same email (first), then a email from Loyd's England Bank by Sir Lynch, to open an account and she can make the deposit-donation. I just said thanks, I don't have money. Be careful!

    Well I played along for a while. The only info I gave was my name and address and no one can really do much with that info. The scammers even sent a really really good looking letter of authorization and used all types of fancy terms. But after back and forth emails for about 4 days, they finally asked for money for it to be delivered to my address.

    These guys are good. So be cautious. If you do think its real, then play along until you get asked for money. Also do not give out any info that may hurt your identity! These criminals that prey on others like this is truly sickening and wrong on so many levels. My goal through this comment is to help anyone I possibly can before they fall victim to these disgusting human beings!

    I just received a similar e-mail about a month ago, saying that Marie spoke to her ministers and they advised her to donate some of her winnings and she choose me out of list that was presented to her.
