Beware of the "National Lottery, FIFA, Microsoft, Coca-Cola and Russian 2018" Scam

Online users, the so-called "United Kingdom National Lottery in association with Federation Internationale de Football Association(FIFA), Microsoft and Coca-Cola" is a lottery scam. Therefore, recipients of the same email message, which claim they are winners in the 2017 annual draw of the International Promotions Programme of the UK National Lottery-FIFA 2008 World Cup in Russia should delete it, because there is no such lottery.

The lottery scammers trick potential victims into sending them money by claiming the potential victims are winners in the bogus lottery. Once the potential victims send their money, which the lottery scammers will claim is for taxes or other fees, they will disappear, leaving the victims broke, angry and depressed. This is why online users should never send money to anyone to claim a lottery prize. This is because legitimate lottery companies do not request money, taxes, personal or financial information from their winners.

Victims of the lottery scam should report it to the police, although there is little or nothing they can do because the lottery scammers are operating in foreign countries where it is difficult to apprehend them.

Remember, once you are asked to send money, personal or financial information in order to collect a lottery prize, it is the first sign that some lottery scammers are attempting to trick you into sending them your hard-earned money or information.

    "Dear Angeline
    Congratulations!!!

    Please note that your application has been submitted to our insurance broker FDIC U.S and paying bank HSBC, for an immediate processing /approval of the cash prize to you.

    The brokers has requested for some legal back up documentations ( an Affidavit of None Residential Claims) to be processed on your behalf from the authority in U.S as an authorisation for the FIFA Lottery Board and Insurance brokers to approve the Cash Prize on your name within 5 working days.

    The Affidavit of non residential claiming will also stand as a clearance for an authorisation to approve the cash to you from the FIFA Lottery Board and Insurance brokers via their paying Bank HSBC. The brokers said this is a huge amount of money and cannot be transferred from the insurance bank to your bank account in your country without the legal back up documentations.

    Therefore the broker has agreed with the paying bank HSBC to approve your Cash Prize of $920,000.00 ( Nine Hundred and Twenty Thousand United States Dollars) to you through Certified Bank Pre-Load ATM CARD,which will be approved on your name. The Card will be approved on your name and with the ATM Card,you will be able to withdraw up to $2000/5000 US Dollars daily from any ATM Machines worldwide,but in your local currency.

    My dear Winner, your INFORMATION will be forward to the authorities soon concerned for application of claim which will enable me to obtain the Affidavit of None Residential Claims on your name, after the said documents been obtained I will submit your claim documents to our paying bank ,HSBC in U.S. to process your winning payment through the Certified Bank Pre-Load ATM CARD on your name, once the bank loaded the $920,000.00 into your ATM CARD I will inform you on how to send it to you via Speed post.

    I personally have No interest in the FIFA World Cup. However I will say it is a very clever official letter and can imagine some people could fall for this. Ending up replying making phone calls as requested and as a result losing their Money.

    I don't understand why these scammers can't be caught thus protecting innocent vulnerable people. My letter is now In the Bin.

    Hi, I have received an email that my email address has been selected as a winner in a random micro-soft world wide web, computerizes draw system. To do with this FIFA 2018 world cup in Russia by June 2018 and that I have won 2,000,000.00 English pound!! What a joke!!
    They did not ask my for any money so far. Just name, address and copy of ID or license.
    They emailed me the Award Winning Certificate etc. They only want me to revert back to the office in acknowledgment of receipt of my certificate.

    The email came from Capital Finance Inc. Claims Office London, email capatalfinanceinc@interia.net and informed me that my prize claim has been completely processed for disbursement with their Claims & Treassary Dept.

    IS THIS A SCAM? WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE!!

    My woman's intuition saved me as I did not send them anything. That's when I came to read this article.

    How can we report the email and sender as scammers, so they may not have anymore victims?

    Be vigilant when reading this scam email from fraudsters, more often than not you will spot grammatical errors within its contents, and always remember if it sounds to good to be true it generally isn't.

    These fraudsters rely on their victims vulnerability or greed in getting something for nothing plus as those promoting lottery draws state you have to be in it to win it self explanatory. Also if genuine they would NEVER ask for or infer that an upfront fee whether it be for taxes or any other reason it's a SCAM...... So Ignore it and delete it immediately for fear that if you act in haste you will be repenting at leisure or for the rest of your life.

    Ignore ignore ignore...then click delete, then get on with your life having the assurity that you've beaten the low life scammers at their own game...Karma!

    Good Day!

    5 days ago they send me a same message; they said that I won 3.9M $ from FIFA WORLD CUP RUSSIA ONLINE LOTTERY.

    I reply and suddenly I think how come I won?! Then I google it and I read this article; thank God I didn't give my personal identity.

    How they STOP this scam so they do not victimize other people?

    The most confusing part is that I received the second email from "RBC BANK" confirming the price and the letter of collection plus photo of RBC visa card.

    I am from Brakpan Gauteng South Africa. Also received email that say you have won 2 000 000.00 pounds sterling in a random draw of email address in association with FIFA Microsoft and coca cola. Also was ask to pay ZAR 3000 for secure courier delivery of a VISA card ATM card where the money was paid into.

    I had suspicion about this. The card was issued from RBC Royal Bank UK. This is a scam. You can also verify it by sending email to ukfinancialcrime@rbc.com.

    I almost fell for this scam but learned a very expensive lesson from the past.

    Good day

    This is a true article, I have one of their letter on my email right now where they send you a certificate of your winning, some letter that looks like a bank status and a picture of a VisaCard with your name on it, when you've replied to this email they send another email asking that you pay an amount of ZAR3000(Three Thousand Rand) depending on which country they are scamming.

    The thing that makes it obvious is that it is a scam and is them asking you to make an instant cash send which any normal bank would not do.

    Keep up the good work guys, these articles help a lot of people that are not sure about the process you have to go through.
