Beware of "Facebook Mega Millions Award" Lottery Scams

Beware of "Facebook Mega Millions Award" Lottery Scams

There is NO Facebook Mega Millions Award 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.

Please continue reading below.

Victims of the Facebook Mega Millions Award 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've just received a message from a person that I don't know that well and he told me he won $300,000 through the mega millions lottery through facebook, apparently you fill out some forms and the UPS guy will deliver it straight to your door!

    He said that my name was on the winners list?!.. so he sent me a link to contact 'georgiana coral'... so I messaged her and she wants me to fill out a form so I can receive my winnings.. the details she wanted was: name, address, next of kin, email, occupation, age, worth of income, would I like it in cash or cheque.

    I haven't replied to her as I'm assuming it's a scam?

    I got one from Valarie Severt MegaMillons lottery saying UPS would be at my home by 6p.m. today. 150,000$ in cash and I pay the UPS the 950.00 when he arrives. Did I just let her take my identity.

    I received via email that my name was chosen from FaceBook to win $200,000. An old customer of mine said she did. It comes via UPS but first, you have to send $1500 for taxes and handling fees my friend said she sent it to a Wells Fargo Bank. I have about 33 email messages with them asking questions.

    I mentioned I had a son in law who was a major in the police department and we share all with our children. Molly Davis is her name for Mega Millions. She sent a list which had my name on it.

    I asked them to call my husband as he was not sure of this and was told they cannot make calls. It appears from the way the wording was done it was not Molly but someone else with a few very small grammar errors today. What is your opinion I sent no money but did give them my name and address? My old customer said she got her money?

    Just got a message from a woman claiming to be on the board of trustees from facebook, and I have won money from the mega million dollar lottery. Blocked her on fb messenger. This is a huge scam. Be very careful. The woman claims her name is Caroline Saunders.
