Beware of "The United States Green Card Organization" Lottery Website - it is a Scam

"The United States Green Card Organization" website located at www.greencardorganization.com is fraudulent. The fraudulent Green Card lottery website is being operated by cybercriminals. The Better Business Bureau, McAfee Secure, Security Standards Council security seals on the website are fakes. Online users are advised not to use the fraudulent website because their credit card information will get stolen by the cybercriminals operating it and used fraudulently.

Please continue below.

"The United States Green Card Organization" Lottery Website at greencardorganization.com

"The United States Green Card Organization" Lottery Website at greencardorganization.com

To enter the Green Card lottery, online users should apply only on websites with names ending with ".gov" because they are official U.S. government websites. Other non-governmental websites with names ending with ".com", ".org", or ".net" provide immigration and visa related information and services, but the U.S. Department of State does not endorse, recommend or sponsor any information or material shown on those websites.

Please note that the only official way to apply for the U.S. green card lottery is to apply online at the Department of State website at https://www.dvlottery.state.gov/, and there is no fee to apply. If you have been selected in the green card lottery, you will receive the confirmation by postal mail, and NOT by email. Therefore, if you receive any such email, it is a scam.

It is recommended that you complete the green card lottery online application yourself, rather than through "Visa Consultants" or "Visa Agents" or other facilitators who offer to submit an application on your behalf because many of the websites offering the Diversity Visa (DV) Program extort money from their applicants by withholding their selection notifications that should have gone to the applicants directly in the first place.

The U.S. Government does not employ any outside consultants or private services to operate the DV program. Any intermediaries or others who offer assistance to prepare DV entries do so without the authority or consent of the U.S. Government. Use them entirely at your own risk.

Remember, some websites may not even provide any assistance in completing the online form or provide any service and just steal your money. Therefore, you should be very careful when sending any personal information to these websites as they might use your information for identity theft or in other fraudulent activities.

    How do they have access to bank information with 4 numbers of your bank card and no authorisation? This is very concerning.

    This website is a complete scam.......one woman, one man, based in Israel not Florida(check your bank statement if you’re unlucky/stupid enough, like me, to have fallen into their trap and paid).

    They are very clever, callous cheats. Beware! The enormous payment comes unexpectedly, after their suckering drool, convincing you that you are eligible to get the green card and that they can help. They cannot help. Only .org websites are valid.......remember. I wish I knew this before I lost my money to them. I have reported them to the police!

    Received via email:

    "Hello, I need help please! Im from Russia and I ve been scammed by these people. I saw a commercial offer and unfortunately fell for a big sale (to take part in US Green Card lottery for 40$ / 2200 RUB russian rubles) . Then, next day after my payment, a woman named Naomi called me from USA (Florida) number [ 17863297187] and ask me for a 1000$ (allegedly it involves ticket to US, some kind of insurance, job searching etc.) and she asked me to dictate my visa card details including my CVV (CVC) code (afterwards I realized that she asked that to be able to get out 1000$ from my card).

    I said ok and believed her(however I exactly knew that there is no enough money in my card to perform this operation) then the call was disconnected, and Naomi recalled me again and said "Operation has been declined" (of course luckily for me) , "What's the problem?" and so on. I answered "I have no money at this moment"... and she started to ask me forcefully "When you will have money!!?" "What's your salary?!" "Why the operation has been declined!?" "Can you find money today!?" and something like that. Then I got a text message from my BANK "Your card has been blocked (cancelled) , due to potentially illegal/criminal/fraudulent activities"

    I feel myself like a real fool.... I am a musician from Russia, and I was only wanted to try my luck in lottery and maybe use my chance to move in USA to work as an artist, improve my life quality and breathe life into my career as artist... apparently I failed... but I will never stop trying to make my life better...
    Help me please! I asking YOU cause I saw your email under this article (about scam and fraudulent greencardorganization . com )


    - HOW CAN I RETURN MY MONEY BACK!? (40$ ,Im resentful cause I dont have an extra money in Russian Federation, and hate lies )
    -HOW TO PUNISH THEM ALL!!??
    and
    -AND WHERE CAN I FIND THE TRUSTWORTHY AND REAL GREEN CARD LOTTERY!???"

      Hello Russian Friend.

      Sadly I think you will lose the 40 dollars you have paid because you have fully entered the number of your card online, include your CVV number. so your bank, (except if you know personally someone in there, will not refund the money.

      If they (cybercriminal person), try to take more money them self. you can be safe.
      Because your card is now blocked and canceled by your bank and is the best you can have.
      I have the same problem like you before yesterday, and after talking with them, I have said to them, NO way, I never give my phone my card number, and my CVV. NEVER do THAT.

      She was almost pest off, but I don't care.
      Until today they still try to call and send email to me, but I don't give an answer and I lock this number on my phone. Anyway, they are cybercriminals and like you, I hope they will quickly find and arrest by some Police somewhere.

      Good luck, and just ignore this bulls**t people.

    coming mail with information to fill up. Please DON'T fill out any. Just send to spam department.

    They will call you and ask everything about you and your family. name, address, how much you win etc... until they ask for your credit card number for paying the fee. Please NEVER give out your credit card information over the phone.

    So I went to my bank, blocked my card, issued a form for getting the transaction back. But the bank couldn´t aid me, since I have approved the transaction.

    There is no way to get your money back the moment you approve the transaction. So take care people, these are experienced scammers, they will provide you with fake bills and record your approval of transaction, so later on your bank won´t be able to help you at all.

      • Posted: Feb 3, 2018 by an anonymous user from or near: Jerusalem, Israel

        I was a telemarketer. I was only with them for a few weeks, so any info I have is limited. The company works out of Ramat Gan, and hires people with a high level of English to pose as Americans, so the clients think it's a US based company.

        The job of the sales representatives there is to call up people who left their contact info and try to convince them to buy the service. Among the questions they ask is stuff that has nothing to do with the process, such as "what do you plan on doing in the US" and "do you have family in the US", specifically to try to build the client's trust.

        I'm not sure how much info I'd be allowed to share on this thread (since a previous comment of mine that went into more detail was never approved). I will say that "Green Card Organization" is not the actual name and it operates from the Bursa area of Ramat Gan.

    I forgot that all Greencard applications should be made on a page that ends with .gov. I checked my eligibility out of curiosity but was prompted to enter my phone number.

    I didn’t enter my credit card information because I knew the lottery should be free. When I received an email from them, I immediately canceled my subscription. On a Sunday morning I received a phone call from the following number: 1786408524. I made a reverse phone check and found out that the number is listed as fraudulent and high risk. They apparently make the call for voice recognition.

    I did a "free check" whether I am a valid candidate for the process or not. Once I saw the fees and that I should enter credit card infos... I stopped the process and found this website. Actually I just made the "free check" out of curiosity and regret it right now.

    I received a mail that my application isn't yet complete.. Of course since I haven't filled my full data yet. My question is, should I declare that I don't want to use and will not use any of their services and they should unregister me? Or should I just ignore any of their mails in the future?

    Thank you for your advice and hope my info will help as well.

    I wrote a while ago, that I gave my personal details to these criminals, but I will add that their commercial was placed on the front page of MSN news feed, right next to official news sources like New York Times, CNN and others. And one link after that you are lured to give your details to criminals. This is just.... If it was on a webpage I would have thought twice before, but on this news feed - you can't even see the link to the webpage. Really, you can't be too careful on the internet.

    The support service was helpful until I realised where the money has been paid to in Tel AVIV. I send them 1 verification document, which now I cancelled asap.

    The website is most comprehensively design compared to other scammers. Hence, I got bought into this joke. There is virtually no cyber protection anymore.

    Quite nice, I was scammed by these. And that happened 10 days before this article came out. And I don´t know what should I do in order to get my refund. My bank can´t intervene since it´s against bank policy (they can´t help me if I have authorized the transaction). I have tried few times to contact them, but the numbers provided on their website are only leading to ´´Yellow Pages´´.
    I have already reported them to FBI, and consumer support websites. But I think I have just thrown away 2000 USD into fire.

    p.s.
    I have blocked and changed my credit card, so they don´t have access to my account anymore.
