Email Scam: Winning a Fake Lottery

Here is another scam example. It is not a classic 419 scam, but still an advance fee fraud scheme.

It says that I won the lottery. Thing is, I never bought a ticket? How can I win.

Me too

I just got a letter (not email) dated 15/05/06 from International Lotto Commission - Loteria Primitiva. And guess what .. my 'lucky numbers' are 13-15-16-21-34-36. What a coincidence that they are the same as yours :);)

Mind you, mine only 'won' me 615,810.00 Euro.

These must be VERY lucky numbers, as googling reveals 376 web pages with emails claiming that these are the winning numbers. I'll have to put in a REAL lotto entry using them :)

Great !!! Here's one too.........

I just got a similar e-mail saying that I won 200,000. If people would win such amounts without even buying a ticket...i guess the world would be richer !!! Ha..Ha...

Here it comes....

Lottery Scams

You are correct. These are all scams and they are using our web site to further these scams.

We have added notifications on the home page about these scams but unfortunately the scammers have now started to reference other lottery sites that do not seem to be aware that the scammers are using their sites or are not interested in posting a warning.

For your reference no Canadian lottery exists to promote the 2010 World Cup and no Canadian lottery will ever charge a fee to claim a jackpot. All winnings are paid in a lump sum tax free.

Thank you for taking the time to warn other internet users about these scams.

If you should receive one, please contact your local police fraud division and in the US contact your postmaster and the FBI and your ISP to have them tighten their spam filtering to block these types of emails.

Sincerely,

Lottery Canada Support Team
