Beware of  "Panasonic Electronics Annual Promotion" Lottery Scam

There is no "Panasonic Annual Promotion" lottery like the one below. Therefore, online users who have received emails claiming they are winners in such lottery or promotion are asked not to follow the instructions in them. This is because the emails are being sent by lottery scammers who are attempting to trick potential victims into sending them money for a lottery or promotion that doesn't exist.

Please continue reading below.

Online users can verify the authenticity of a Panasonic promotion or lottery by visiting their legitimate website at: www.panasonic.com and search for the word: "promotion".

Remember, do not be fooled by the lottery scammers who have created the fake promotion in order to lure their potential victims to the fraudulent website (www.panasonicpro.co.uk), by claiming they are winners in the Panasonic Annual LinkedIn Promotions, a lottery that does not exist.

How the Lottery Scam Works?

The lottery scammers will send a message to their potential victims, claiming that they have won the fake lottery or promotion and they can claim their so-called cash prize by visiting the fraudulent website: www.panasonicpro.co.uk. Once the potential victims visit the website, they will be asked for their LinkedIn’s account credentials, which the scammers will steal and use to hijacked their victims' LinkedIn accounts and use them fraudulently. They may ask their potential victims for their personal information, which the scammers will collect and use, or sell to other scammers, for contacting the same potential victims, in an attempt to scam them.

The potential victims will also be asked to send money via money transfer services like the Western Union or MoneyGram, which the lottery scammers will claim is for taxes or processing fee. Or, they may be asked to visit phishing websites created by the lottery scammers, where they will be asked to enter their credit card and other financial information, which will be stolen by the same lottery scammers.

Online users who are victims of the "Panasonic Annual LinkedIn Promotions" are asked to contact the police for help. And those who have received messages with so-called instructions for claiming their so-called lottery prizes, are asked to delete them, and not follow the instructions in them.

    Here is another scam:

    "Dear

    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 Panasonic™ 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 Panasonic 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 Linkedin profile 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 44 134 457 6277(ext 310) If you need any assistance.

    Regards,
    Robert Gaynor (Client Executive)
    Panasonic (UK) Ltd.
