Bill Lawrence Powerball Scam and Fake Donations

Scammers are sending out fake emails like the one below to potential victims, claiming Powerball winner Bill Lawrence is donating thousands or millions of dollars to people around the world. But, this is a lie and if the potential victims reply to the fake emails, they will be asked to send money in order to receive their so-called charity donation from Bill Lawrence. And, if the money is sent, the scammers will take it and disappear, and the victims will not get the money or donation they were promised. Remember, once you are asked to send money in order to receive a donation or lottery prize, it is a scam.

    They changed mine up a little bit. Now they are offering 1,080,000.00 to me. Still got selected with a random email generator. This time they are using a different lawyer - Anthony Rodriqguez.

    I texted them back saying "cool story bro."

    They replied back with, "Rest assured, this is real."

    So I replied, "What happened to Juan Rossl? He's your personal lawyer, not Anthony Rodriquez. He's not hurt or injured, is he? Pray no. :( "

    In addition, (FYI), I searched "Juan Rossi" and the only information that popped up for him was a Linked In account... My guess is that the account is fake to make him look real for potential victims.

      I have just received the very same text. I live in DE as well. I looked into the law firm and it appeared suspicious to me. It's listed as a law firm but when I tried to find specifics, it lead me to sales and such. The group is listed on linked in but the "lawyer" who is supposedly be handling the handouts has attended law school but is not a lawyer?!.it also says he is an IT specialist I believe. ( Check it out on Linked IN). It also shows the firm is linked to DE businesses. Anyway, it is all too supicious. Mr. Lawrence has children and grandchildren. I couldn't imagine that he would give away money to random people especially people on the opposite coast. It would be more reasonable to make donations that matter in my opinion.
