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 Shane Missler 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.

    This is a personal email address from me to you.

    I'm SHANE MISSLER, from Florida, United States. As you already know, I won $451m (£330m) lottery Jackpot in January 2018 and the money has changed my life and my family life but it has not and will not change my heart, As I have promised myself to use some part of the winnings for Humanitarian work. My family is a very modest family, we help each other and have decided to do God's work after having a long conversation with some people with good heart and strongly support humanitarian work. I don't have much to say about myself now, but I'm over excited so I want you and your family to be happy as we are happy today. We have voluntarily decided to donate the sum of €5,000,000.00 Euro to you and your family as part of our own charity project to help increase the fortune of 12 lucky people around the world. We hope you can use the money wisely and sensibly. We will employ you to do what you can to alleviate the level of poverty in your area and also try and improve the standard of living of as many people as you can help in your own local community because that's the purpose of donating this money in the first place.

    I am very grateful for the interest in my plight and I want to assure you that you will be very rewarded for what you have chosen to do. Although we are knowing each other for the first time, I believe that same luck that I had with winning the jackpot is what attracts me to you when I searched for these few people to help over the Internet as I saw your profile on a list of registered email addresses that were provided by Microsoft list.

    Be rest assured you are not at risk as this is my money, for source and verification please see the link below:

    link: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-42671157

    I decided to donate to individuals and I told some ministers of my ideas which was welcome and promised that they would get me a list of some people who could help others with my donation and put smile in the face of the needy I decided to choose myself by going to Microsoft and Google to do a research. I have decided to move with my family to Belgium because since I won this lottery, too many commitments and taxes have been imposed on almost any investment I put my hands on.

    My donation of €5,000,000.00.00 Euro may not be much for you, but I believe this will go a long way in improving your standard of living, as my lottery jackpot has done for me. I would like you to fill in the information below and return back to me. My family and I will be glad to meet you after the donation has come to you. We believe that this wonderful opportunity has come to us from God, and we can not keep it all to ourselves, one more thing, this donation will be highlighted to you so that you can strengthen your personal questions and generously help us, hands in the most part to the fewer privileges, orphans, and charities in your place. We have chosen you to be a part of this blessing because we believe that there is an expression of worship.

    Do this in a timely manner so that you can contact the disbursement bank for additional policies to receive donations. Please keep this to your self until you receive your money in your bank account. Kindly fill in the following data.

    Full Name:
    Country:
