Beware of "Texaco Global Company Award Promotion" Lottery Scams

Online users, beware of Texaco Global Company Award Promotion and lottery scams like the one below, which are being advertised on social media and the rest of the internet by lottery scammers. The promotion and lottery scams claim that the recipients have won or have been awarded thousands of U.S dollars, and are asked to send their names, addresses, mobile numbers, nationalities or other personal information in order to claim or receive their so-called prizes. But, the information requested is what scammers need in order to trick their potential victims into sending money in order to claim so-called lottery prizes.

Please continue below.

Therefore, recipients of Texaco Global Company Award Promotion or lottery email messages claiming that they should send their personal information or money, should delete the messages and not follow the instructions in them.

    I was contacted January 2018 by a Mr. Morris claiming that he is with Texaco global and that I have one 500K! I mediately thought OK this is a scam, he reassured me that it was not and that he also told me my friend from where I grew up in Larnerd Kansas also had won 500K!

    So I instantly started messaging my friend and she was coming back saying yeah I already have my money this and that this and that and she was also telling me that yeah do it do it do it it鈥檚 not a scam but the entire time I was texting my friend I started realizing that the texting style and the vocabulary did not sound like my friend. So I started thinking maybe somebody had hacked my friends Facebook turns out I was right my friends Facebook had been hacked and somebody from Texaco global was talking to me through my friends Facebook trying to act like my friend!!

    The worst part about this is Mr. Morris has already convinced me to buy to iTunes cards thankfully it was only a $25 and a $15 but rest of sure I鈥檓 not buying any more but unfortunately now I have to go in and change everything about my Facebook!! And now I really need to subscribe to that LifeLock because now he also has my address he has my age and I think that鈥檚 all I gave him but I would have to go back and review my messages with him but thankfully those to iTunes cards are all I sent him!

    This Mr. Morris guy will tell you he is a hard-core Christian and that he could never scam people out of money he sounds so legitimate I fell for his tracks and I honestly cannot believe that happened I knew that ringing in my ear was coming from somewhere and now I know that the ringing in my ear was Jesus telling me don鈥檛 do this!!

    A new Facebook friend, who only knows one of my friends, asked if I'd heard the good news. She said we were two of ten winners of $500,000 from Texaco Global Company Promo Best List, and referred me to that promoter's Facebook site. Aside from asking for my address, they even asked for my Facebook password, which I later changed.The other eight names were provided, and at least they existed on Facebook.

    "We embarked on a worldwide promotion for Disabled, Unemployed, Worker's, Retired, Young & Old people, A sophisticated automated database to randomly select E-mail accounts that frequently surf the Internet You won the sum of $500.000.00"
    Note the suspicious apostrophe splice in "Worker's;" it should be "Workers."

    Just got the scammer tonight thru a friend of mine, who said she won. And wanted me to friend the scammer on line, but I think they are using her account and it really wasn鈥檛 her I was talking to. Found out that there are three accounts in her name and it wasn鈥檛 her I was talking to. They have a site on Facebook.

    These people hacked my friend's account and sent me messages through Facebook messenger. I haven't been able to get a hold of him yet to let him know. These people are a disgrace to the human race. Hope no one falls for this garbage.

    Last night I received a message that a friend of mine had received $100,000.00 from the Texico Global Award Promo. By accident, she saw my name and facebook picture on a list and I also was a winner. I thought the messages had come from her, but this morning all our conversation was deleted. In their conversation, there were misspelled words and poor grammar used. At first, because of the messages, I got from my friend I thought it must be legit. After thinking it over, I decided to keep my $1.500 and they could keep their $100.000. Please tell me this is a hoax. They repeated several times I should tell no one. They gave me the name of the person to whom I should send my money through a MoneyGram.
