"Maryland Lottery Online Ballot" Free-Ticket 2016 Promotion Award Scam

The email message below, which claims that the recipients are lottery winners of the Maryland Lottery Email Address Free-ticket draws of the 2016 Promotion Award, is a lottery scam. Every month, thousands of those email messages are sent out by lottery scammers, to trick their potential victims into sending them their personal information and money, to collect so-called lottery prizes. Always remember to verify the authenticity of a Maryland Lottery prize or award by contacting them at their website at www.mdlottery.com. Also, never respond to an email message claiming that you are a lottery winner with your personal or financial information. Legitimate lottery companies do not request personal or financial information via email message, and will never ask winners to send money or financial information in order to collect their prizes.

Maryland Lottery Online Ballot Free-Ticket 2016 Promotion Award Scam

Here are some tips to help prevent you from becoming a victim of Maryland lottery scams:

  • NEVER give your credit card numbers over the phone to anyone promising Maryland Lottery cash prizes or memberships.
  • NEVER accept a collect phone call from someone claiming to be a Maryland Lottery official.
  • NEVER respond to a letter or phone call from someone who offers you a guarantee of winning a prize. The Maryland Lottery does not guarantee you a prize, only a chance of winning if you buy a legal ticket.

    All this happened to me, in the same way, even "MPhilo Dlamini" sent me a form in which I had to give him the personal account information in the bank, looking for the veracity of the names and their relationship with the FNB of South Africa, I found this warning from you, and I'm done with all my research right now.

    Thank you for denouncing these criminal acts publicly, I do not doubt that someone has already fallen into the tangle.

    Here is a something that sounds a little fishy to me. A Facebook lady name Kimberly Welsh or Welch telling that she works for Facebook and was told to let me know I was the Winner of 500,000 USD and offer me three way of getting paid, cash, check or ATM card, which I had to pay up front even 500-700$ before getting paid. H**l I got the certificate she put on the messages thing that I saved to my photos but then when I told her I didn't have no way to pay that; she deleted all the part she wrote to me so I believe this is some what you aall are dealing with.
