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.

Seriously? More fake testimony? Anyhow, this "Dr Osun" character is weak compared to "Dr Iyaryi", above. Dr Osun only helped this guy win ONE MILLION DOLLARS, compared to the "53,193,914 million pounds" won with the assistance of Dr Iyaryi.

Note that "Dr Osun" advertises a phone number with the country code of Nigeria. Not that I'm suggesting any association between Nigeria and scamming, or anything.

The above comment has nothing to do with lottery scams, specifically, but I thought I'd leave it there rather than delete it, because it's still a big fat dirty Nigerian scam. Seriously, these guys aren't picky about which blogs they post their spam on, are they?

It is a very hard situation when playing the lottery and never won, or keep winning low fund not up to 100 bucks, i have been a victim of such a tough life, the biggest fund i have ever won was 100 bucks, and i have been playing lottery for almost 11 years now, things suddenly change the moment i came across a secret online, a testimony of a spell caster called Dr, Ogala who help people in any type of lottery numbers, i was not easily convinced, but i decided to give try, now i am a proud lottery winner with the help of Dr Ogala, i won $1,000.0000.00 and i am making this known to every one out there who have been trying all day to win the lottery, believe me this is the only way to win the lottery, this is the real secret we all have been searching for, you can contact Dr Ogala via email Ogalalotteryspell@yahoo.com or his website on http://ogalalovespell.wix.com/ogalalovespell or call his telephone number +2348147673679.

I think in future that I will simply mark these "lottery spell" comments as spam and be done with it. They're getting very repetitive.
