Beware of "Richard Wahl" Lottery Donation Scam

Online users are asked to be aware of "Richard Wahl" lottery donation scams. The name of the 47-year-old Powerball Jackpot winner from Vernon, New Jersey, who won $533 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, Richard Wahl is not randomly donating money to people around the world.

Please continue reading below.

A Sample of the "Richard Wahl" Lottery Donation Scam

From: Richard Wahl

Sent: Friday, May 11, 2018 5:43 AM

Subject: Re: OUR DONATION TO YOU

Dear Sir / Madam,

This is a personal email directed to you. I am Richard Wahl I won the Mega Millions Jackpot of $533 million Mega Millions drawing held on Friday, March 30, 2018 and i have voluntarily decided to donate the sum of One Million Dollar to you as part of my own charity project to improve the lots of 15-20 lucky individuals all over the world plus 10

close friends and family.

I believe that this wonderful opportunity came to me from God and i cannot keep it to myself alone, Your contact was submitted to me by Google Management Team and you received this email because i have short listed you as one of the lucky recipients, If you have received this email then you are one of the lucky winner and all you have to do is get

back to me this email ( richardwahl01@hotmail.com ) with your particulars so that i can send your details to the pay-out bank.

You can verify this by visiting the web pages below to see my interview and send your response back to me.

And one more thing, this donation is made out to you as to enable you strengthen your personal issues and mostly to generously help me extend hands of giving to the less privilege, orphans and charity organizations within your locality.

You are required to get back to me on how to receive the donation on this email richardwahl01@hotmail.com

Please make sure you copy and reply only on this email richardwahl01@hotmail.com

Good-luck,

Richard Wahl

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 Richard Wahl 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.

    Yes I was on Instagram and seeing your page it said you were giving $10,000 to people so I believed in him, and he had me buy $100 Amazon card so I can get the transfer code from the FedEx guy and I got ripped off.

    So I typed in his name and there’s like 10 names so I wrote a couple of them and one responded and said I don’t remember talking to you can you send me pictures of what he was talking about and now this other guy wants $100 iTunes card and now what I read it is a Nother scam I am really p*ssed.

    I lost $100, Richard Wahl.

    This is the email that I received. Usually, I just delete these emails. But this one made me mad. He is pretending to be someone from New Jersey but doesn't speak proper English. The lowercase I gives it away every time. My family and I are currently living with my friend until my husband finds another job. I have been very sick for the past five years. It would have been great for a good samaritan to bless us in this way.


    "Hello,

    you have won a donation of 5,000,000.00 EUR, I won the $533,000,000 (Five hundred and thirty-three million dollars) on Friday, March 31, 2018 and I am currently donating five million euros to 1 lucky winner in each continent of the world.

    I am currently in the categories of charities, individuals and companies or corporate bodies in Europe, so you have won in one of these categories, I am doing this out of the goodness of my heart and I feel obligated to share my lucky win with a lucky winner randomly just as I have won this huge sum randomly. Please send your response to my professional email address only; richard.wahl18@yahoo.com

    He contacted me tonight on Instagram. He identified himself as Richard Wahl, Powerball winner, and said I had been randomly selected to receive $50,000. Wanting to see what the scam was, I wrote "Great."

    He wrote, "Are you willing to accept the money?" I replied, "Sure." Next, I was to give him my name, address, occupation, tel no. gender, age, cash or check? He wrote, "You need to be honest with me and do whatever I ask you to do I'm a man of integrity . . . "

    At that point, I said thanks anyway and then tried to video chat me, and I ended the discussion at that point. Tried to report it to Instagram, but they have only categories, without the ability to provide a narrative.

    I am glad I am seeing this. I also received a email from a source claiming to be from the recent powerball jackpot winner Tayeb SouamI from New Jersey who won 315.3M on May 19, 2018.

    What caught my intention from the first time I received the email is that it just looked fake. I did reply to the email asking them how did they get my email address and that this was a scam.

    They responded back with saying that Google Management team gave it to them and a long story using God name is vain for charity purposes and using this poor name Tayeb SouamI for their selfish reasons.

    They tried to make me think that is was not a scam! Today I said this is enough I am going to do some online research on this and I found that homemail.com is a scam email address. I did noticed at first, the email addresses looked strange.

    The first one appeared as TayebSouami@hotmail.com then when I viewed the source, it said TayebSouami@homemail.com and another TayebSouami. I said to myself, I never seen an email or heard of email addresseses like these before.

    Please see the emails below:

    Hello

    We bring greetings to you in the name of the lord. This message sent to you as a notification that you have been chosen to benefit from our charity project aimed at touching lives and helping those that we can across the world as God has blessed us.

    I won the Powerball Jackpot of $315.3M on May 19, 2018 and I have voluntarily decided to donate some part to charity In this project, I try to reach people randomly from different sources and modes so as to touch lives from different angles, Hence you are getting a message here.

    You have been listed as one of the lucky recipients to receive $5 Million This donation is made out to you so to enable you to strengthen your issues and mostly to generously help us extend hands of giving to the less privileged, orphans and charity organizations within your locality.

    To verify ...

    Get back to me on how to receive the donation.

    Thanks

    Dear Friend

    Thank you for confirming the validity of your email address and also accepting this grant I like you to know that this is not a hoax because Your contact was submitted to me by Google Management Team and you received this email because I have shortlisted you as one of the lucky recipients. My family is grateful to God for this fortune, and we thank him so much for the smiles he put on our face, so we have decided to put smiles on other people's Faces.

    Visit the web pages below to see my interview.

    ...

    You see God works in miraculous ways, I never knew God has plan for me, On May 1, I purchased orange juice for $5 at a ShopRite in Hackensack, but my wife told me to return it because it was on sale for $2.50 elsewhere, then I went to the customer service counter to get refunds and the Powerball sign that read $306 million caught my eye, I thought to myself, I like the numbers, so I use the cash I was refunded from the orange juice to pay for two tickets. The next day While I was stopped at a red light, I noticed a 7Eleven store to my right, and I went inside to check my lottery tickets, and I couldn't understand the Machine because The first ticket scanned wasn't a winner and the second ticket was Good so I ask the cashier to help me and check The cashier immediately said Oh my God after scanning my ticket I ask her What do you mean by, Oh my God? But she kept repeating causing my heart rate to soar. Finally, she responded and simply said BIG. I told her that I didn't want to see the number just yet.

    It took me two hours to get home because my hands were shaking. When I walked in the door my wife asked what took me so long and then started crying when I showed her the lottery form, I know you would be wondering in your heart and mind if this is for real but don't panic it is well, This is a lifetime opportunity and 100% legitimate, we have decided to make sure this is put on the Internet for the world to see, You see after taken care of the needs of our immediate family members, we decided to donate the remaining of the million (USD) to other individuals around the world in need, the local fire department, the Red Cross, Haiti, hospitals in Truro where my wife underwent Her cancer treatment, and some other organizations in Asia and Europe that fight cancer, Alzheimer's and diabetes and the bulk of the funds deposited with the payout bank of this charity donation scheme. We have kept just 45% of the entire lottery sum to our self for the raining day.

    You don't have to be skeptic about this as this is not a scam, it is entirely a blessing from God, We believe we are doing the right thing in deciding to put smiles on the faces of other people by reaching out to some individuals, the less privileged ones and charity organizations too.

    To facilitate the disbursement process of the funds $5,000,000.00 USD has been solely donated to you, please send us your contact address and a valid identification of your self and phone number, so that we can forward your details over to the payout bank immediately, We are hoping that you will be able to use the money wisely and judiciously over there in your country, We will employ you to do what you can to alleviate the level of poverty in your region and also try to enhance the standard of living of as many people as you can because that is the only objective of donating this money to you in the first place.

    In view of all these, we want you to know that measures have been put in places for our intentions to be implemented swiftly and by so doing, we request that you re-confirm your details once again so that we can immediately forward your information's to our pay-out bank.

    Full Names:
    Contact/resident Address:
    Phone Number:
    Country/Nationality:

    Please be aware that we do not need your information for any other purpose. We only need this information because we need to have a correct record of who we are dealing with to establish a better relationship with you.

    We anticipate your earliest response.

    ----- Forwarded Message -----
    From: Richard Wahl
    Sent: Monday, July 2, 2018, 1:50:23 PM EDT
    Subject: Re: Re: CONTACT OUR PAYOUT BANK.

    My Dear,

    This is to acknowledge the receipt of your last email However, since i won the Mega Millions Jackpot Lottery I have been investing ahead of the future, as i have invested a lot on estate, also building charity foundation in Africa and Asia we are on vacation in Kenya I have been dreaming to explore Africa Safari though my mother in-law previously work there as Mexico Diplomat to Kenya, so we are spending sometime here nevertheless, I have already issued a valid Cheque of $1,000,000.00 USD in your name and your Cheque has been deposited with NIC Bank Kenya as an international bank draft.

    The amount to be given out to you is sum of $1,000,000 USD (One Million United State Dollars) which is actually quite a huge sum and you would agree with me that it is also quite unbelievable seeing someone give out such amount of money to any individual, that’s why we have made sure that we choose the right persons to give these out to and I hope that our aim of giving out this fund to you is achieved Note that every transfer process in getting this fund to you legally would be commenced and also note that we require you to map out good strategies in ensuring that the less privileged around you benefits from this fortune you would be receiving from us, that is really our main aim of giving out this fund to you as we wouldn't be able to carry this task on our own without having to involve the likes of you through an Electronic Ballot System.

    Please always try and remember that the objective of this donation to you is to make a notable change in the standard of living of the less privileged people all around your community before the middle of the year 2018. Note that you have only be chosen to receive this donation once, which means that subsequent yearly donation might not get to you so we advise you to take your time and thought in spending the donation wisely on projects that will last your community for a long time to come.

    Kindly allow me to inform you that just last month alone, i discovered a huge number of double claims due to beneficiary's informing close friends relatives, attorneys and third parties about their donation, As a result those close friends, relatives, attorneys and third parties tried to claim the donation sum on behalf of the real recipients thereby causing problems for the payout bank, Please be informed that any double claim discovered in the disbursement process will certainly result to the cancellation of this donation making a loss for both the double claimer and the real beneficiary, as it is taken that the real recipient was the informer to the double claimer about the donation. So you are hereby advised to keep your information's strictly confidential until your claim has been fully recovered.

    Now taking into cognizance the nature of the funds, Kenya Financial Security Act requires International beneficiaries like you to open an offshore account with the payout bank, which will be responsible for clearing the cheque(check) in Kenya before the funds can be transferred to your designated bank account anywhere in the world, I have therefore included a Donation Reference Number to this message [RWD1/231/2018BDB] which should be kept strictly confidential as you will use it in receiving your donation.

    You are to contact the management of NIC Bank Kenya, immediately as they have been authorized to clear the check and wire the funds to you after you must have opened an account with them and concluded all modalities associated with the wire transfer process.

    Bank Name: NIC BANK
    Officer Name: Mr Joshua Carson
    Email: JoshuaCarson@ke-nicgroup.com

    Please note that upon your contact with the bank you are to provide them with your Donation Reference Number [RWD1/231/2018BDB] so that he can verify your identity with the details we sent over to their office a while ago on and In view of this whole information passed to you, please be informed also that the bank would require you to open an offshore account with them so as to hasten the processing, don’t panic as this is one of the routine I informed you about earlier on this email, The account when opened must have a minimum balance and such balance must come from you, This is being done because the account must have a minimum balance to be able to accommodate such huge amount, this is also known as opening balance, The opening balance is still your money as when you are transferring the money from the account you opened with them, you can transfer the total amount if you wish.

    I believe this information is helpful to you and we do expect that you understand every aspect of it without being skeptic, doubtful or disbelief also ensure that you report back to us on every of your dealing with the bank as it will account for records purpose to avoid any misunderstanding.

    Your full cooperation is highly anticipated.
