Remember, once they (scammers) have received their potential victims' personal information, they will use the information to trick the potential victims into sending money, which they will claim is for some advance fees, which will cover banking and transfer costs, insurance payments or tax that the potential victims need to pay before they can receive the so-called donated money. But, if the victims send their money, the scammers will steal it and may continue to trick the victims into sending more money, with the promise of receiving the donated money the scammers claim they would receive.

Recipients of the Mr. James Stocklas lottery donation scam emails are asked not to respond to or follow the instructions in them. They should just delete the email messages instead.

It is important to remember that when someone contacts you, claiming that you have won the lottery or you are the recipient of millions of dollars, and asks you to send money in order to receive your lottery winnings or prizes, it is a SCAM. Legitimate lottery companies will never ask their winners to send money in order to receive their prizes or winnings. And, why would lottery winners who are allegedly donating millions of dollars to you, want you to send a few hundred or thousand dollars for banking and transfer costs, insurance payments or tax? Well, the money that the scammers want the victims to send, which the scammers claim is for taxes, bank transfer cost, insurance or other expenses, is what the scammers will steal. And, the victims, on the other hand, will never receive the winnings, prizes or money that they were promised.

So, once you are asked to send money in order to receive money, it is a scam.

    Date: 15 October 2017 at 13:50:48 BST

    Subject: Hello,


    Thanks for accepting my Donated Gift of $200,000.00( Two Hundred Thousand Dollars Only) . I have been making donation to some person online for some times now and i was advised by my wife to also make a donation to Organisation for disabilities. I happen to come across your Email and Decided to Donate to you, which was the reason i sent an email directly to you and i believe you will be able to handle this and make good use of the money that i am donating to you for the good of your community.

    Read More:

    I am donating $200,000.00( Two Hundred Thousand Dollars Only) to you from my $291,400,000.00 Dollar Lottery on March 02, 2016, I am doing this for the needy and financially depressed, as a matter of fact i have decided to put this away from the media and my sole purpose of doing this was a result of a long talk in England with my 14 Year Old daughter who said to me ''Dad how come we are celebrating your Birthday in England with so much money to be spent when there are family's out there who still find it hard to survive, I knew exactly what she was talking about because i have thought of it too. I want you to be rest assured that you received this message because you are among the 10 individuals to receive from my "DONATION PROJECT". I'm very sure that if you read or watch my interview via the link above you will see the history on how i became a winner and what you stand to get. After the heavy TAX imposed on me i had to move over here in the United Kingdom UK to settle with my family as advised by my family attorney, so we are currently here in the UK, i am monitoring this donation to you be rest assured.

    I have read all comments from a lot of people and i think donating this to you is not a mistake because contributing to you and putting smiles on your face is a good thing and i might not have been a good Catholic because i never believed miracles were real until i won my Power-ball Lottery.

    I may not know you, but i believe if you were chosen by God to receive my donation of $200,000.00( Two Hundred Thousand Dollars Only) , you must be a God fearing individual, I am a catholic and i have always believed that Good things happens to those people who wait and we have no idea on how our winners will be selected but the Rogers Raffle Draw and the GOOGLE MANAGEMENT TEAM said our winners will be notified on email and they will be directed to contact me on email.

    I'm James Stocklas by name, from USA, and I'm a Senior District Judge by profession. As my prospective beneficiary to receiver my donation of $200,000.00( Two Hundred Thousand Dollars Only) I would like to know about you also, kindly send the following information about yourself, as soon as i receive it i will forward you the details of my paying out bank in Texas where donation will be transferred to you. Send the below info:

    Full Name:

    Residential Address:

    Country of Residence


    Phone Number:

    Please ensure to write back as soon as possible. May the Good lord bless your heart to be a blessing to your family and your society as soon as my donation gets to you.

    My Regards

    Mr. James Stocklas"

    It seems this fictitious "Mr. Stocklas" (as opposed to the REAL one) has many different email addresses from all over the world. I received this one:

    "From: Mr. James Stocklas []

    (Mr. Stocklas from Bethlehem, PA, emailing from "China Construction" in the United Arab Emirates??)"

    ...and continues with:

    "My Name is James Stocklas (Senior District Judge ), the winner of the Powerball jackpot of 291,400,000 million in the March 02, 2016, My jackpot was a gift from God to me hence my Entire family has AGREED to do this. I am going to be donating 2,000,000.00 USD to you. Contact us via my email for further / full details and please accept this token as a gift from me and my family. Email me urgently "

    Best Regards,

    Senior District Judge

    (United State Of America)


    This email has been checked for viruses by Avast antivirus software."

    SO... a quick recap:

    Mr. Stocklas, from Pennsylvania, USA, wins a Florida lottery for $291.4 million USD (true so far) and then emails me from a Chinese company in the UAE, and tells me to urgently email HIM at "Jeff Lindsay's" account on a Russian email hosting site and provide my personal info? And this convoluted email isn't expected to raise questions? REALLY???

    At least the email was checked for viruses! LOL!!

    After ALL these years of Nigerian Princes, deposed African Treasury Ministers, and other questionable, alleged, multi-million-dollar "giveaways" (ever since the advent of email for everyone in the '90s [and before]), I seriously can't believe people STILL fall for this obvious SCAM!

    Here is another scam:

    "Sent: Wednesday, September 27, 2017 10:18:30 AM

    You have a donation from Mr. James Stocklas, Contact email:"


  • September 16, 2017 at 2:19 PM by an anonymous user from Oakland, California, United States

    Mr James Stockla (no s) emailed me to say that Jesus had asked him to email me to let me know that he was donating $2,000,000 from his winnings in the lottery. He sounded so honest, and I followed through with the information for which he asked. Everything OK until it was necessary for me to open an account at Lloyds Bank in London. THEN I knew it was a SCAM. I should have checked with Google before getting involved. I forgive people like this, but unless they change their ways, and ask forgiveness, a wasted life.

    I have received emails at my work account and text messages. I am sick of it. Whoever is doing this should be charged with fraud for pretending to be this man and scamming people.
