    Is this true??

    A guy on Facebook claims he's a coordinator from Samsung winning promo. Anyways he send me a message about me winning 800,000.00 but first give him my information from bank and email and also phone number and for me to send 250 so that they can send me the so called 800,000.00 money.

    I gave him all that but he still ask me to send the money so I'm wondering if this is a scam or not?

    I have received not 1 but 2 different messages from 2 different facebook/messengers, claiming I won 8 million dollars in a promo award from samsung. Both people claimed to be working for samsung.

    I tried to get as much info on both but they dont have much.They said if I had it transfered to my bank than I wouldnt be charged the 200 fee to have it delivered.

    I know its b.s so I was just dangling them along cuz Im not that stupid. I asked for a certified letter and to meet with someone personally but they denied both. I reported them to facebook and samsung

    Surely this is not legit, right?

    "Your prize money has been sent from our company headquarters,

    It's the world lottery association (WLA) policy that a clearance fee should be paid by our lucky winner as it also includes part of the taxes to be paid to the international revenue service . The clearance fee also enable us to carry out a background check on all our lucky winners before their prize money/winnings is remitted to them to ensure they have not committed any serious crime and are clean according to the international association of Gaming regulators policy (IAGR) .

    You are to come up with the sum of $850 only and after you have been cleared, We will be coming with our media team and Samsung executives to hand you your cheque of $800,000.00 in the next two working days."
