The "Facebook Mega Millions Award" Lottery Scams

The "Facebook Mega Millions Award" Lottery Scams

Would you share this article with others to help inform them?

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.

Note: Some of the names, addresses, email addresses and telephone numbers in email samples on this website may have been impersonated.

    Received a hacked profile post on the 22nd of March 2019, saying that Anne De Klerk, from I.M.F. Grant, that I've been awarded $5,000, 000. US Dollars. They then asked me to respond to this on wats app, 1 202 -539-2062, which I did asking for me to pay for the posting costs amounting to $3,000. US Dollars, and still wanting me to pay to a fiduciary agent in South Africa, with FNB Bank account. I've saved this conversation to my email address. powysd01@gmail.com.

    I can forward this to you to investigate the matter further as this is not the first time that's been happening to me.
    You can contact me on my email address then I'll be able to forward the email details to you.
    Please let me know ASAP when you get this complaint,

    Mr Dana A Powys,
    Facebook user.

    HI there,

    I am getting messages from a person by the name of Marlow Micheal Joseph

    "I have received Mega million grants award"

    He is part of the Federal Agency and Federal government Dept of workers appeals board, Dept of health and human services and also part of the Mega Millions grant awards commission. Saying that I have won a Grant of $150,000 US. And willing to drop off at our door the cash on certain conditions.

    I believe he has access to a close relative of mine face book page in her messages saying that she has granted the same amount of money and had it delivered to her door not to long ago.

    What I know of her and her husband they are a very honest couple, I have face booked her for her phone number and so as to talk to her direct but have received everything else but her phone number.

    I have asked how is her brother keeping in Melbourne Australia but actually lives in Brisbane Australia which is about 1500 kilometers away hoping to get a answer but still no answer.

    I am guessing this may be fraud in the making.

      Yes, it is a scam.

  • Jul 6, 2018 at 1:20 PM by an anonymous user from Saxmundham, England, United Kingdom

    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.


  • May 16, 2018 at 10:44 AM by an anonymous user from Sackets Harbor, New York, United States

    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?
