There is NO Facebook Powerball 2017 New Year Grant Lottery or Promotion

There is NO Facebook Powerball 2017 New Year Grant lottery or promotion. Therefore, Facebook and other online users are asked to delete messages or Facebook posts, which claim that they have won the same lottery or promotion. Also, they should not follow the instructions in the messages or posts. This is because the messages or posts are being sent by lottery scammers. Every month, thousands of the same lottery scamming messages or social networking posts are sent out by scammers to trick their potential victims into sending their personal information and money to claim bogus prizes or lottery winnings.

Victims of the Facebook Powerball lottery scam should report it to the police, and should know that legitimate lottery companies will never ask their winners to send them their personal information, or send them money in order to receive their lottery winnings.

    I was given a website to contact about claiming my winnings from the Facebook Lottery Powerball promo. am looking for a Donna Pete agent for supposedly winning persons to claim their winnings with the Facebook Powerball promo.

    She has already collected 1750 from me for documentation and fees and wanted another 350 for late payment. I did email her and asked that she return all my monies back to me because it sounded so real as a genuine down to earth swindling scam. I have not heard any replies from her to no avail, she uses the Facebook internet as her communication back to me.

    I also asked her that I will not make any verbal commitments and I needed everything in writing per Powerball policies and procedures and protocol. I am very offended by this woman because when I first spoke with her she told me a little about this whole scam and I replied to her that it really sounds and is a swindling scam to me and she got offended.

    I should have trusted my gut instinct. She also asked me to wire the Western Union the 1750 to a Iluobe Erica Sweet of Abuja, Nigeria which I did. I would like all my money back from this so-called Powerball facebook Lottery, if at all possible. I live in Hawaii. She should be put in jail for embezzling a retired woman living on social security. I am livid. I have been trying to get a hold of her thru their scam website with no luck or even a whimper. I do have the website and that is probably bogus too.

    What I would like to know is how they got my name and cell phone number? I received a text message about this last night. I didn't respond but it still bugs me that they have my name and number. Should I do anything about it?

      Report it to your cell phone provider to see if there is anything that they can do.
