The 2019 Facebook Lottery Promotion Award is a Scam

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.

    I was a victim of the "Lottery Scam". I kept being told I was on the list of winners. SUE BARBARA SMITH conned me into sending $10,000.00 cash to a Rebecca Cooper. Beware of her name before it is too late

    Hello, just this evening at about 8:00 p.m. CST, I received a friend's request on Facebook.

    It showed we had two mutual friends.

    Those names were actual friends of mine. I should have contacted both of them before accepting this request.

    That was my first mistake. I added a woman by the name of Karen Hunt.

    She said she worked for Facebook as an Online Coordinator. She then asked if I had been contacted by anyone else about my winnings before her.

    I had not. She said my name was picked by an automated system and was one of 10 winners of $800,000 US dollars.

    That was too good to be true. I have been contacted like this before.

    So I am not gullible.

    I asked, Is this for real? What is the catch?

    She sent me a video of a woman holding up a card that looked like a credit card. Saying, "Thank you Facebook so much for my winnings."

    She then sent me pictures of past winners.

    Holding up those large fake checks. By this time, I thought it was time for me to look up and see if this Lottery was real.

    As I thought it was a scam. I messaged her back and said she was a scammer.

    I sent her copies of what I found on the internet.

    I heard nothing else from her.

    I am keeping the messages to use for evidence. People please be ware!

    Yes, now I'm also one of their targets. I believe when I research this is a scam. I think this is true..but they want if they deliver the cheque just pay 1750 riyal before deliver. Then I told them to deliver before pay

    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.
