The "Panasonic Annual LinkedIn Promotions" is a Lottery Scam

Comments  +
The "Panasonic Annual LinkedIn Promotions" is a Lottery Scam

The "Panasonic Annual LinkedIn Promotions" is a lottery scam. The lottery scam, also called "The Panasonic Promotions," is located at the fake and fraudulent Panasonic website: www.panasonicpro.co.uk, which the lottery scammers alleged is the claims website. Therefore, online users are asked not to visit the fraudulent website and should not follow the instructions on it, or from anyone who claims that they are employees or claims agents of such a promotion or lottery.

Please continue below.

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

The Lottery Scamming "Panasonic Promotions and Claims" Website

The Fraudulent "Panasonic Promotions and Claims" Website

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 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.

    I got a message in my mobile Panasonic key, it is a fake.

    Here is another scam:

    "I am very happy to announce to you that the National Lottery Commission -NLC- (The government body responsible for all games and promos in the UK) has finally reviewed your request sent to them earlier on and they have replied that they will grant you the approval to be paid even though you are not a British citizen. (Please check the document attached to this e-mail for their official response)

    Being that you are outside the United Kingdom and the government office demands the involvement of a legal practitioner to legally complete the process for you, I have made contact with one of the leading legal practitioner, Barrister. Tom Rochford(St. Philips Chambers) to take care of the notarization as required by the NLC.

    You will however need to pay a small exemption processing fee(524 Pounds) to the government authority as described in their document. Panasonic have already covered the fees for the lawyer's services as he(the lawyer) is under legal contract with Panasonic Ltd, you will only be responsible for the payment as demanded by the government body.

    I have already briefed the lawyer everything about your case and I have informed him you will be contacting him soon. See his e-mail address below:

    EMAIL: trochford@st-phillips.com

    You should contact him right away on the above e-mail and demand he send you an official invoice to enable you wire the required fee to the office of the NLC. He should be able to show you what to do. Just follow his instructions diligently.
    I also like you to understand that Panasonic have not budgeted for this extra cost because your winning was a rare coincidence in which we have not planned for. It is now your responsibility as the lucky winner to immediately complete the legal requirement as demanded by the British government. This small amount of money cannot be deducted from your winnings because it is a regulatory requirement here in the UK that all winners of promos be paid exactly what is advertised without any form of deductions or subtractions.

    We however like to mention at this point that you are 100% guaranteed of approval from the government If you study their letter closely. They have also stated that we MUST pay your complete winnings to your bank account within one week after you must have gotten the full approval from them. We will ensure your payment of 850,000 GBP is done swiftly within a week of completing the NLC process.

    Kindly let me know as soon as you receive this email and give me a call if you need to discuss. At this point I must say congratulations and the celebrations can begin now as the major hurdle has been crossed. It seems your prayers were answered. Congratulations to you.

    "Martin Boyle <martin@panasonicmail.com>
    Ke Rui.jaguar@yahoo.co.id MeI 24 pada 2:55 PM

    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 603) If you need any assistance.

      They cannot erase the information or undo sending it. The information you have sent is not enough to steal your identity or defraud you. But, the scammers will be contacting you in an attempt to scam, therefore, be careful going forward. Do not send money or information to strangers or people who you do not know.

    They have sent emails to a number of potential victims who are not located in the United Kingdom. However, to every such person, they are sending same text i.e., “This will be the very first time we will be having a winner outside of the United Kingdom and we say special congratulations to you. They are also managing a list of winners for every potential victim upon submitting requisite information by showing you as a winner (1 winner out of 6) from outside the UK and 5 other winners from within the UK. If one of the selected winners is located outside of the UK and 5 winners are from within the UK then all such emails which are received by non-resident of UK are clearly fakes and prove that this lottery is totally scam.

    They are managing this lottery in a way that it looks real but it is actually not, so kindly be careful of this scam and other such scams and work hard yourself to become wealthy.

    I am very thankful for this article.

    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 603) If you need any assistance.

      Try flagging the email messages as spam, so they are automatically sent to your spam folder. The scammers cannot steal your money unless you send it to them, so do not follow the instructions in the lottery scamming email messages.

    Hi all,

    I have experienced the same yesterday but I got a bit further with the communication, and today they were expecting me to pay an invoice for fees, but I have not done it.

    Should I worry about something more important like online access to my bank account, since I have done payments online and they can restore some how my details? Is that possibe? Everything happened through my smartphone and computer. Can they have access since I entered to their link?

    Please note that so far I have given only data like name, number, address, but not bank account details.

    What I have to do now?Change my password in Linkedin and in my personal email?

    Thanks and regards,

    Vassia.

      You only need to change your LinkedIn and email passwords. The scammers cannot access your online accounts, unless you give them the credentials for the accounts, or if you download and install malicious apps or software called malware or spyware that steal information on your computer or mobile device.
