Harold Diamond Lottery Donation Scam


Online users are asked to be aware of "Harold Diamond" lottery donation scams. The name of the Mega Millions jackpot winner, who won 326 million dollars, is being used by scammers in an attempt to trick potential victims into sending money and personal information. The scammers claim their potential victims were randomly selected to receive donations from the lottery winner as part of his charity project. But, Harold Diamond is not randomly donating money to people around the world.

Please Note: This is the third time we have been trying to contact

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 Harold Diamond 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.

    I am a victim. I gave them my name address and phone number. Then "Harold" said I can to contact his bank and open an account with that bank before I could get the money this is the address mrharoldd93@gmail.com.

    Luckily I didn't go any further. I thought to look into a little more because I have 3 kids that are 2,4 and 6 and I'm struggling as it is. I would do everything if someone took any of my money.

    I live paycheck to paycheck. Every penny counts. He said I would get $12.5 million USD.

    Thank you everyone for sharing your stories. I would have went forward with it if it wasnt for all your info.

    I received a email from Mr. Harold Diamond in 2016. He gave me a lawyer located in Italy.Since 2017,I have been paying numerous fees until I emailed this bank and the lawyer I had enough.

    this scam has cost me 3 closed bank accounts and They still believe the last account can be reopened. I feel betrayed, hurt and a foolish woman to believe God had redeemed me for my past mistakes I made in my younger days.

    I pray my family and God will forgive me and one day I will be able to forgive myself.

    Today I said No MORE. THAT I finally had Enough. And I felt a Great weight Off of Me because I'M Free.

    I'm a witness. I got away once. But I fell for the lie and it bounded me. In So many ways but I only lost some of my monies and NOT my life and Soul

    I owe monies to people who sent me monies to help me pay those fees but with the help of God I will repay those people back because they were lied to also by the same person who lied to me too.

    Besides that bank and that lawyer, you're the only ones I admitted this truth out loud. Not even my family knows as of yet.Give me strength My Lord to tell them and I pray they show me compassion because I hurt so bad.
