Warning from Dubai Duty Free - Be aware of Lottery Scammers

It has come to our attention that there are a number of inauthentic emails and telephone calls that claim to be from Dubai Duty Free advising individuals that they have won in one of the Dubai Duty Free promotions to win a luxury car or to win a million dollars. These inauthentic emails use addresses such as Yahoo, AOL, Gmail etc.

    I have received a Whatsapp message this morning from the number 1 (902) 702-2385 mentioning,

    "Dear Customer, congratulations. You are selected for a reward from DU,ETISALAT,EXPO 2020 and DubaI Duty Free. You won 200,000 AED in happiness of new year in 2018 your raffle code is 5438 For further details contact us on this number. 0564340563 Or visit our website. https://online.dubaidutyfree.com/"

    I am sure this is fake as I checked the said web address and neither the raffle number nor my details are available there.

    Please address this.

    Thanks,
    Sreedevi

    Received via email:

    "I got a call from the following number 971509232457 claiming that the caller is from DDF and I won a lottery of USD500K in their random selection.

    Then they asked me my bank account details, then I got suspicious and asked whether it's genuine. Immediately caller disconnected the call.

    I'm sure it's a fake call.

    Please address it on your end

    Regards

    I received a WhatsApp message yesterday informing that I was selected for a reward from DU, Etisalat, Expo 2020 and DubaI duty free. I won an amount of 200,000 AED in the Happiness New Year of 2018. they gave me contact number 0566955941 and 0545192355 or visit the website: hxxps://online.dibaidutyfree.com
    there is another message with the same has Etisalat logo beside his mobile# 0564960767.

    I contacted the 0545192355. The person who answer my call confirm my mobile number and he knows my name. He said he will send the reward amount by asking my bank account number, but I didn't give. then he told me he can process the transaction thru Al AnsarI exchange by asking again my emirates ID number, but I didn't give again, then he started trying to convince me that this is a promotional and it is legit so on and on.

    I ended up the conversation.
    These people knows my mobile number and even knows my name. How you will ensure that these people will never victimize other people.
