Beware of William and Heather ten Broeke Lottery Donation Scams

The email messages below, which claim that William and Heather ten Broeke, the Georgia Powerball jackpot lottery winners of $246 million, are donating millions of dollars to people around the world as part of their charity project, is a lottery scam. William and Heather ten Broeke are not randomly donating money to people around the world. The scammers/cyber-criminals are who are sending out the fake email messages, and who are pretending to be William and Heather ten Broeke, are attempting to trick the recipients into sending them their personal information.

Please continue below.

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 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 William and Heather ten Broeke lottery 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.

I and my entire family are happy and we decided to do the will of God by donating part of our winning amount to help some people and some charitable organisation.

We are a firm believer of God and also a tither to our church. We have already donated some amount to some charitable organisations and we want to also use this medium to donate $280,000.00 each to 5 lucky individuals around the world with a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 Laptop. You are receiving this message, because your email was one of those that has been selected for this donation and we believed you might have hoped for something amazing like this maybe that is the reason your email was picked from our personal ballot system, congratulation to you.

We are not doing this to gain fame and as a matter of fact we are currently in INDIA, we decided to stay away from home for some period due to the news we heard about some previous lottery winners and their families that have been attacked by gun men after their winning. We believed that our family were chosen by God to win this lottery for good reasons and we also believed we are doing the right thing by donating to you. We may not know you, but we believed if you were chosen by God to receive our donation of $280,000.00 and a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 Laptop, you must be a lucky individual.

We are a God-fearing people and we believed God will always remember you no matter the circumstance you are into, just like the saying to whom much is given much is expected. We would like you to know that, we cannot satisfy everyone and we cannot put food on so many tables but we believe from the little we have given out many will benefit from it. We would like our donation to be utilised on an investment that will be blessing to others, invest in something that will create job opportunities and put smile on the faces of those who have forgotten how joy feels like. So be sure you make the best of it, because this is the only true way you can really show us your appreciation.

We need you to write back to us and let us know if you can utilise our donation funds which we are about to give you in a safe way. Please keep this confidentially for security reasons until you receive your full donation, because we do not want the paparazzi to bother us anymore. Ever since we won the lottery our lives have not be the same no more privacy and we hate that, so do us a favor and keep this donation secretly.

    The scammers tried their moves on me, even showed me a photo copy of a check with my name on it for $550.000 but had to open an account with a Habib bank from u.k. Did not sound good so I told them I notified Interpol; emails went quiet no response after that; be on guard people.

    Sincerely A.R.

    This email looked so legit that I fell for it. They have taken $20.000 US from me so far and keep asking for another $18,000.
    I was tired of paying it. I did get a loan, so looks like my money is all gone now.
    Here is the copy of the email I got. Can someone tell me if you read this and they asked you to open an account in Paris and go through a proper bank to deposit the money?

    We received a mail telling us that we were pulled out of a drawing and we were getting $1 million..

    The check was going to send us by a delivery company in India:FLEW COURIER SERVICE COMPANY.

    Upon checking on the internet, the courier service seem to be existing and everything looks real!

    But the scam is obvious!!!
    They asked us to send money for the delivery courier service !

    So don't reply to any courier service expenses!

      I got this email and for sure, I was scammed for more than US$20,000.00. I'm so furious, that they still keep asking me for another $18,000.00 to release the funds. I'm actually in a fix because I borrowed the money and have been separated from my spouse, did not think this will make me totally broke. Thanks for your response. I don't know why I didn't check this ahead of time. God will never forgive these people for doing this to innocent individuals who already have problems in their lives. Thank you.
