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.

    ----- 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.
