Beware of "Maureen and Stephen Hinckley" Lottery Charity Donation Scam

Online users are asked to be aware of Maureen and Stephen Hinckley lottery charity donation scams. The names of the couple, who won $122 million in the Massachusetts State Lottery Powerball jackpot, are being used by scammers in an attempt to trick potential victims into sending money and personal information. The scammers claim their potential victims were randomly selected to receive donations from the lottery winners as part of their charity project. But, Maureen and Stephen Hinckley are not randomly donating money to people around the world.

Please continue reading below.

A Sample of the Maureen and Stephen Hinckley Lottery Donation Scam

From: Maureen Hinckley bell@bell.hu
Sent: Saturday, July 9, 2016 4:07 AM
Subject: Re: donation

my foundation is donating US$550 k to you. For details contact me on Email

Remember, 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 Maureen and Stephen Hinckley lottery charity donation emails are asked not to respond to or follow the instructions in them. They should just delete the email messages 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.

    Sir,

    I think whatever you have expressed in the above cited paragraphs, that is appealable but please guide me I have also received a Cheque from Maureen Hinckly amounting to $500,00.

    I have been directed to open an account in Santander Bank, Wilmington, US then within 3 days I will be given this amount into my bank account otherwise it will become null and void before 18.04.2018.

    $750 has been demanded by the Santander Bank for opening MY Personal Account, as if I arrange $750 for opening the bank account, next again I will be directed to deposit any kind of charges as Conversion Charges or any type of due taxes, or the donation fund will be immediately transferred to my account.

    Copy of the cheque is with me can be sent if needed for verification.

    Treat this very Urgent Matter and direct me urgently.

    Sincerely Yours, Mohinder.

    The text I received didn’t have a lot of info, just that someone was trying to reach me. So I responded and this is the email I was sent. I just think it’s weird because I’m from Wisconsin, not NZ and the amount is different than all the other emails I read.

    "I am Mrs. Maureen Hinckley, I am 58 years old and I am from Sterling,
    Massachusetts.I won my Power ball Jackpot of $61.5 Million dollars in
    December 11, 2013, My jackpot was a gift from God to me and my entire
    family. I may not know you, but I believe you were chosen by God to
    receive this donation of $2,500,000.00 Dollars from me.
    I have decided to donate the sum of $2,500,000.00 USD to you as part
    of my charity project to improve the lives of many individuals in your
    local area from my $61.5 Million dollars Jackpot Lottery winning funds
    through you. Your mobile number was randomly selected through a
    computer ballot system drawn from over 20,000 company and 30,000,000
    individual Mobile numbers and names from all over the world. Your
    mobile number was luckily selected,the sole aim of this random
    selection is to make the process credible.

    My Sympathy for the sorrows of others has been heightened by the
    tragedy in my life. I moved to South Africa in January after I lost my
    husband and my son in a plane crash. I lost my husband and my only son
    3years ago in a plane crash.
    my sole purpose of doing this is as a result of a long talk with my
    husband and my son a week before the plane crash. They advised me to
    donate to strangers to make the process more transparent.
    Unfortunately, I have been diagnosed with cancer and the doctor
    informed me that I might not live long to see early of next year. I
    know that there are lots of families out there who live on pay check
    to pay check and others that cannot take care of their financial
    obligations hence also a strong desire to do this.
    Although I won this lottery funds December 11, 2013, I have helped
    some charity organizations, family members, strangers and friends from
    my winnings. I have already donated money to the local fire
    department, the red cross, I have assisted Schenck High School
    Florida, Indonesia earthquake victims, hospitals in Truro where I
    underwent my cancer treatment, and some other organizations in Asia
    and Europe that fight cancer, Alzheimer's and diabetes.

    I would encourage you to invest these funds in a lucrative business
    to create more job opportunity to help jobless and needy people in
    your locality once you have the funds in your possession
    My wishes are to do good things before I finally depart this sinful
    world. My child and my husband are all I have got now and they mean
    the whole world to me. I have decided to fulfill my wish in this Year.

    To facilitate the disbursement process of the funds $2,500,000.00
    which have been donated solely to you, You are to send me your full
    names, address and phone number for disbursement(I asked for this
    brief information just to know who we are donating this money to and
    because of the Identity theft going around the internet which I have
    been a victim in the past, I do not want to ask you for your ID as we
    do not want to leave any negative impression in your mind that I want
    to steal your identity).

    I am hoping that you will be able to use the funds judiciously over there.
    I will employ you to do what you can to alleviate the level of poverty
    in your region and also try to enhance the standard of living of as
    many people as you can because that is the only objective of donating
    this funds to you in the first place.

    I want you to re-assure me and help me fulfill this dream before I
    would provide you with information on how you will receive these
    funds, and if you feel you cannot handle this project you should
    inform me, so I can quickly look for another individual to donate the
    money to.

    Feel free to go through the newspaper publication in the link below to confirm:

    If you have any question please don't hesitate to ask.

    God bless you,

    Mrs. Maureen Hinckley"

    Kepada: "Daffa Al-Falah AUBA"

    Greetings to you,

    I am Mrs. Maureen Hinckley i am a 61 years old, and I am from Sterling, Massachusetts, Moved to South Africa in January after i won my Power ball Jackpot of $61.5 Million dollars in December 11, 2013, My jackpot was a gift from God to me and my entire family has agreed to do the will of God.
    I may not know you, but i believe if you were chosen by God to receive my donation of $550,000 dollars. You must be a God fearing individual, I am a catholic and i believe that Good things happens to those people who wait and also believe.

    I have decided to donate the sum of $550,000 USD to you as part of my New Year charity project to improve the lives of lot many individuals in your local area from my $61.5 Million dollars Jackpot Lottery winning funds. I prayed and searched over the Internet for someone to donate this money to in your state and I saw your profile on Google/Face book list of email owners and I picked you.

    My Sympathy for the sorrows of others has been heightened by the tragedy in my life. My father took his own life in 2005, a few years after, one of My daughter died of overdoes in 2010 two months before her 27th birthday.

    I am doing this not to gain fame as a matter of fact, I have decided to put this away from the media and my sole purpose of doing this was as a result of a long talk with my only surviving children and my husband who has always advised me to donate to strangers in this New Year before i die. because we know that there are lots of families out there who live on pay check to pay check and others that cannot take care of their financial obligations. Although, I won this lottery funds December 11, 2013 and we
    have helped some charity organizations, family members, strangers and friends from my winnings.

    I have cancer and the doctor informed us that i might not live long to see the early of next year. my wishes are to do good things before i finally depart this sinful world. My children and my husband are all I have got now and they mean the whole world to me. I have decided to fulfill my wish in this Year.

We just kept just 7% of the entire lottery sum to our self for the raining days and which I am still spending
    on my treatments bills...

    We would like you to re-assure us that you will follow our instructions and help me fulfill this dream before I would provide you with information on how you will receive this funds, and if you feel you cannot handle this project you should inform me, so I can quickly look for another individual to donate the money to.

    When people get this type of email, if you put your cursor on the "from Maureen Hinkley" at the top it will show the email address from which the
    message was sent - in this case the email was from poonsm@singnet.com.sg which is from Singapore so it ALWAYS easy to confirm an email is a SCAM.

      The email I received actually showed her name & a gmail account. Makes it look more legitimate.

      That will help, but not in all cases. The scammers can spoof the email address. Click here to learn more.

    Just got one through my email, 550 thousand USD they offered me. Good job, I'm switched on because there isn't a single person on this planet who could scam me, but my god they keep trying.

    I got this obvious scam email and replied that due to the fact that it was a lot of money I would love to meet them in person so that when I give them the money I could thank them properly and I would also like to do a story on them in my local newspaper. Never heard from them again...sometimes it more fun to play with them than just delete it.

        It is not the couple that is doing the scamming. It is the scammers who are using the couple's name.

    I have received the same e-mail twice in the last week. It comes from the e-mail address "weboffice2@charter.net". I don't know how these whackos seem to just send e-mails to random addresses. Forget the e-mail, just send the money!

    I received a very similar email today, ostensibly from Maureen Hinckley. Does this mean I'm not going to be rich. :)

    Yes I too have received the scam mail. I would so love o get to watch them get whats coming to them for this garbage. Someone that is very gullible is going to fall for this. I feel so sorry for them. People just delete, it's not true, it's not going to happen.
