There is no "2019 Facebook Lottery Promotion Award". Therefore, Facebook and other online users are asked to delete messages or Facebook posts, which claim that they have won the same lottery or promotion. Also, they should not follow the instructions in the messages or posts. This is because the messages or posts are being sent by lottery scammers. Every month, thousands of the same lottery scamming messages or social networking posts are sent out by scammers to trick their potential victims into sending their personal information and money to claim bogus prizes or lottery winnings.

Victims of the "2019 Facebook Lottery Promotion Award" scam should report it to the police and should know that legitimate lottery companies will never ask their winners to send them their personal information, or send them money in order to receive their lottery winnings.

    Yes. The facebook lottery is a scam. they ask you to send $2000 in Amazon gift cards to them and then ask for the IRS tax of $20,000 before they send your award. It never came. I have reported this to the police and the Federal Trade Commission and Attorney General. This happened today. thanks

      Someone is trying to scam me I think he says I was chosen to win 500 thousand dollars, his name is William McKinley and I gave him credit card info already. But I’m suspicious that he asked me to pay for delivery charge, how do I report this. I feel so bad that I fell for it at first it really sounds good and he private’s texted me when I gave information about my phone number and credit card call me at... I’m having trouble seeing anything right now my vision is blurry I have a medical issue

    I got e-mail from Guillermo Hernandez that I am winning a Facebook award.

    They wrote that they sending me 950,000,00 Dollar cash to my house. But before i have to pay for shipping.

    I have three choices how to pay. Depends how fast it wou9ldt be delivered by Fedex. I said cant pay so much. So they answering a 50€ Amazon Card wouldn't also be enough.
