    Here is a sad story that we have received from a victim of Facebook lottery scam:

    "On August 1 I received a message from a good friend on Facebook saying he had won the Facebook lottery and that I SHOULD CHECK IT OUT AS MY NAME WAS ON THE LIST. I did check the list and my name was one it and so I preceded to click on this lady Mary Allen who was supposedly in charge of the lottery and she then accepted me as her friend and then she told me I had won the Facebook lottery of 400,000.00 and that if I send them a $1000.00 dollars my winnings would be delivered to me in 4 hours.

    I did think it was legit as my friend said he had won and got his money, but finding that this Mary Allen was using my name and profile to make me think that he had one and that I could get my winnings. I then waited the four hours and nothing came so was watching for her to chat with me and she had text me that they had an accident with the ups truck and in order to finish the delivery she needed another 220 and which then seeing the pictures of accident I sent her the money, which all money was sent by Moneygram, which I have all receipts for these transactions. Well then another four hours had past and she had text me saying that they got caught by the IRS and needed another 120 to finish coming to my house with my winnings in a box.

    I then realized after talking to my friend that he had not won any such thing and they were using him as a way to get to me and then when she text me I refused to send anymore money as I knew than that it was a scam. I am now out of my bill money for my rent, lights, gas and other funds as she scammed me saying she was the president of Facebook. I am asking for my refunds to be refunded back to me as it was my social security money and I cant live the rest of the month this way."

    I was not contacted by Mr. James Waters, but I did receive a message on my phone through a friends profile on FB. The message was from a friend (or so I thought), saying that she had already received her money and she had seen my name on the winners list.

    The message told me to call James Waters at 12176359350 and he would let me know what was needed to receive my money. I always ignore the emails about winning money but I was considering calling this guy because the message was from a friend. I'm glad I decided to check him out before I did anything.

    Q. So how was he able to send me a message from a friends FB account? Is he hacking peoples online profiles as well?

      They are cloning Facebook accounts and stealing Facebook users' usernames and passwords. Then they use the cloned and compromised Facebook accounts to trick the victims' friends into believing they are lottery winners.

      So, not because messages appear as if they came from your friends, means that you should trust them.

      Always ask the senders questions that only your friends can answer, to verify who they are.

    We got a message from Facebook to fill out www.megamillionprize .tk.I got a number from them, it is: 1-217-635-9350. They said I won 1000,000,00. I did not filled out the information.

    We don't have money to give them. We cannot afford to put food on our own table. Please stop those people. They do have my cell phone only and they messaged me on my cell phone. This needs to get turned over to the FBI dept. They only got my cell phone and home address.

    I am reporting it to you, please do something. I will save the message on my cell phone from them so the FBI can see it. Thanks.

      I was contacted by James Walker too and fell for it! My son alerted me so I tried to check for myself. I was duped into sending him $500 - and he wants me to send another 500 - glad I saw this before I sent him more money! I'm not sure what to do? We should alert Facebook about this scam too y!

      It is a lottery scam. Please ignore persons who are contacting you claiming that you have won the lottery, and ask you to send money or information.
