    Not two days ago I received what seems to be a fake message with a bit different content but the style of the message is suggestive of the one in the fake message example of lottery scam, provided herein. I would like to describe it here.

    It alleges to be an international annual promotion on behalf of the World National Oil Companies Congeress, organized by the Terrapinn in London from June 2017, and that I am the 1-st category winner of $220 000.00, chosen together with 7 e-mail addresses in the fight against HIV/Aids awareness campaign. To get "the free lucky draw" payment I will be required to send appropriate data to a certain Mrs.Afshan Abdia, Johannesburg, South Africa,on e-mail:

      It is a scam.

  • March 17, 2017 at 3:12 AM by an anonymous user from: Honolulu, Hawaii, United States

    I received almost the same article that I have been selected as one of the 12 people to win $220,000.00. Its too good to be true. I fell for it. So, I gave my personal info. Then, I read this article and reported that email as spam. The respond said that to get the prize it's either 1. bank to bank 2. bank Check or draft but I have to travel to U.K. To claim it. Lesson learned. Thank you very much. When the struggle is real you can't help but let it happen.

    I receive an email saying that I won $175.00 US Dollars. Is it true that it is a scam?

    • March 13, 2017 at 7:28 AM by info

      Did you take part in the same lottery? And is the message requesting personal information or money?

      If your answer to the first is No, and your answer to the second is Yes, then it is a scam.

    I just received the same email today. I was very suspicious because I thought that it would be impossible to win without even doing anything so I searched it up first. This article is really helpful so I figured it's best to share it for everyone to know.

        So what can they do after somebody share the information. What harm they can do to the person?

        • May 8, 2016 at 11:10 PM by info

          They will use the information to convince their potential victims into sending money or trick them into sending their sensitive information, which the scammers will use to steal their victims' identities. The scammers may even sell the information to other scammers, telephone marketers and spammers. So, if you have already sent your information, please watch out for scammers who will be contacting you and trying to convince you to take their baits.
