Lottery scam quick guide: it's a scam if...

  • you win any lottery where you didn't buy a ticket! It's really that easy! It's not just too good to be true: it's bait in a trap!
  • you receive a generous grant out of the blue. Sadly (but not surprisingly) there aren't any benevolent people regularly throwing around millions of pounds/dollars/euros to randomly chosen people. This is just the lottery scam without the ticket.
  • they send you partial payment in the form of a cheque, money order, or direct bank transfer and want you to pay them fees out of that money. They're playing you for a sucker: cheques are frequently forged, and direct transfers made by compromising some poor schmuck's online banking service. You'll wind up a victim of fraud, or a party to it.
  • they want you to send them any money of any sort for any reason. They might try to say there are courier fees or taxes to cover. They're lying. Call their bluff and tell them to take the fees out themselves -- they'll never ever agree, because they can't defraud you unless money is making the reverse trip from you to them somehow.

is this a scam it's to the t of what I recieved on my E-Mail sad I thought is was for real. This is sad to get peoples hopes up to find out it's a scam.

How can a person or people do this to people thinking they won alot of money and to find out it's a lie there are people like me who have been single parents for a long time living from pay check to paycheck and working hard, then they get a e-mail telling them they won a huge amount of money we get excited thinking maybe our hard work never giving up on getting somewhere finally will pay off. God does take care of our children and us single moms and if it wasn't for the Lord I would not have been able to support my children but Jesus always came through for me and saw my hard work The Lord came through for me. But to trick people into thinking they will be in a gift of winning a large amount of money like I was told on my E-mail and then find out it was just a joke is crul and sad to think any company or persons could stoop so low.

this is so bad to just find out is was a scam I hoped for a month I was finally a winner of a large sum of money, and finally buy a home for my children and I to stop renting and paying someone elses mortgage payment,now I would be a homeowner and help those in need like me. But yes like the other comment The Lord will continue to take care of us who work and never give up on our singleparent hood. Who ever sent these e-mails to us what ever company or con-artest this is unless it's not a scam whitch I doubt, God will deal with you if it is just a lieing scam, and we will be in our wealth just by are harvest and hard work alone.

How can people do such thing to other people making it sound so real.This is really sad,especially for us that really thought we won all alot of money.How could they live with themself after scamming innocent people?

The money in their pockets numbs the guilt.
