To enter the Green Card lottery, online users should apply only on websites with names ending with ".gov" because they are official U.S. government websites. Other non-governmental websites with names ending with ".com", ".org", or ".net" provide immigration and visa related information and services, but the U.S. Department of State does not endorse, recommend or sponsor any information or material shown on those websites.

Please note that the only official way to apply for the U.S. green card lottery is to apply online at the Department of State website at https://www.dvlottery.state.gov/, and there is no fee to apply. If you have been selected in the green card lottery, you will receive the confirmation by postal mail, and NOT by email. Therefore, if you receive any such email, it is a scam.

It is recommended that you complete the green card lottery online application yourself, rather than through "Visa Consultants" or "Visa Agents" or other facilitators who offer to submit an application on your behalf because many of the websites offering the Diversity Visa (DV) Program extort money from their applicants by withholding their selection notifications that should have gone to the applicants directly in the first place.

The U.S. Government does not employ any outside consultants or private services to operate the DV program. Any intermediaries or others who offer assistance to prepare DV entries do so without the authority or consent of the U.S. Government. Use them entirely at your own risk.

Remember, some websites may not even provide any assistance in completing the online form or provide any service and just steal your money. Therefore, you should be very careful when sending any personal information to these websites as they might use your information for identity theft or in other fraudulent activities.

Online users who have used their credit card on the fraudulent website are asked to contact their banks for help.

    I signed up 7 years ago thinking I was in a legitimate lottery. I paid for a lifetime entry, they would submit my application every year. I paid over $300 US for this service. I got an email on May 1st stating that I was the successful applicant and had to pay $350 US. Thankfully my credit card didn't work.

    I then tried calling the helpline number they were operating on.

    It was out of service. Now finding out it was a Scam all along.

    Completely gutted by this!

    What a bunch of losers!

    Www.Greencardorganization.Com is a scam. Www.Greencardorganization.Com is fraudulent.

    i am very lucky but i was determined to go to the end once i realised i had been conned. Stupidly i paid around $4,500.00 altogether to these crooks. Yeah yeah i know i should have been smarter, that's what everyone says, but when it's a one to one on a cold call with professional crooks and liars it's a different story, especially when you have no time to think it over or you're down, tired, looking for a big change etc etc. They are very clever.

    i was so angry with myself but in the end i made a full report to the local police and bank and after a few months my bank reimbursed all the money i lost. So full credit to my bank, who, evidently, found evidence of fraudulent behaviour. That leads me to believe that the authorities know more about these crooks than meets the eye.

    look out "greencardorganization". You can't hide in isreal. You know there is no fee to enter the green card lottery program (i do now ;) ). You know the green card lottery program can only be entered through a legitimate site with a .Org extension, not with "org" in the website name (i do now :-) ).

    Received via email:

    "Good morning,

    I am just forwarding you this email, from the scam of green card lottery.org, with the phone number and email address, so you guys can keep track of these criminals.

    They call you, and when you tell them you can't speak, or to call you on a different day, they get mad at you or pressure you to continue, so they can get the money.

    My guess is that they change phone numbers and/or email addresses, but in case it helps, below the details of one of the participants in the scam.

    These people call you after you fill in the form, ask you for a bunch of personal data, and then tell you before continuing with the process you have to pay the fee. Once it was a regular american guy, who got VERY rude and mad when I told him I did not want to do this, and that I would continue the process myself (he tried to pressure me into continuing and paying 300€, which of course I didnt), and this year it was an Indian guy, but I already saw it coming so I told him I could not talk now, again, he got mad, and another colleague of his called me the following day.

    I didnt pick up, and they sent me an email saying we had to talk ASAP, making it seem urgent. It stops if you just tell them you can't/won't pay for anything (I responded as if I was genuinely interested but lacking the funds so I couldnt afford it and they never responded or tried again).

    They're disgusting. Can we report them to some authority in the US?

    Total scam, took nearly $300US for an automated service designed never to complete. Plus, they lack the legal authority to act on your behalf. Complete confidence tricksters, with a very professional looking website.

    05.27.2018...I paid 35 Dollars with my credit card for the entry and their advertised help. 1 hr later I got a phone call from a lady. She seemed nice. American. After 15 minutes of talking (be careful what you say... She is trying to get information and depending on what you say she determines how much money she is going to ask for) she wanted more money for their 'service'.

    Exactly 2,500 Dollars more. I laughed at her and ended the conversation. I truly believe they definitely are a scam.

    Hi, I have received an email today saying that I have been selected for a green card and that I should fill the forms and return by march 15th. No other details except my email. Could it be a scam?


    • March 10, 2018 at 3:19 PM by info

      Yes, it is a scam.

      • July 11, 2018 at 3:18 AM by an anonymous user from: Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain

        It very much is. Try asking them questions about the money they want to take, how, the security of your card details, and maybe even give them the wrong number, see how mad and rude they get.
