Beware of LG Lottery Scam "LG 2016 Promo" and Fake Website "www.lg2016.com"
February 9, 2016
The website "www.lg2016.com" and others like it, which claim that their potential victims are winners of the LG Electronics Promo called LG 2016 Promo or LG UK Promo (see below), are fakes and scams. The "LG 2016 Promo" on the fake LG website: "www.lg2016.com" doesn't exist or is even associated with LG Electronics. Every year, scammers created fake LG websites claiming their potential victims are winners in a fake LG Electronics Promo. Last year the scammers created the following fake website: www.lg2015.com, so will assume that they will create another fake website next year called "www.lg2017.com."

The Fake LG2016 Promo Email Message
Compliments of the day to you, I am very delighted to be contacting you as one of the winners of this year's annual promotion organized by LG™ Electronics. You are indeed a very lucky person.
My duty is to guide you through every process with regards to your prize claims to ensure you receive your winnings within the shortest possible time.
I have however observed from your application form that you are not from the United Kingdom. This year's iPrize was however targeted for United Kingdom only. That not withstanding you can still proceed to claims under special appeal.
We will need to file a special appeal to the UK Gaming council to create an exemption in your case under the hospices of fair-play. Once granted your prize will be approved and we at LG Electronics will immediately proceed to payment of your 850,000 Pounds as mandated.
This legal procedure of appealing to the UK government is compulsory because our company was given license to conduct a product promotion/prize award within the UK to only benefit UK consumers. Hence we will need the UK government's permission before we can pay anyone outside of the UK.
To file this appeal on your behalf, you should print the document attached to this email.
1. Write your name into the document, sign and date the document.
After you must have done the above, you must ensure to scan it and send it back to us via this email. I will personally post the signed document to their office and hopefully they will respond within a day or two with some good news.
This is the legal documentation needed to file an exemption appeal on your behalf. You must be a very lucky person to have won outside of the UK. This was due to mobile number randomization error.
Again I say congratulations as I look forward to receiving the above stated document from you so I can immediately envelope them to the National lottery commission. You can call me on 44 175-325-3428 If you need any assistance.
