Using Legitimate Lotteries to Be Illegitimate

There are various scams that operate using legitimate lottery names to gain credibility. The FBI refers to them as mass marketing scams as the scammers send out hundreds and hundreds of emails at a push of a button. There is almost no cost to them so even if they get less than 1% response, they are making money,

Back to the Name Game

Then, there are the scammers that use legitimate lotteries and people through emails and snail mail to convince people they’ve won a jackpot. They are either after getting a person to pay fees up front or we’re talking identity scamming where they get sufficient personal details to clone you- and then take all you have. No lottery will contact you to advise you you’ve won – especially if you haven’t bought a ticket. If an online concierge service is going to contact you, they certainly won’t use a hotmail, gmail or yahoo account. If you do receive an email saying you are getting money and the email address does look legitimate, check it out independently or send it to our team to check it out. We’ve got some amazing people that do understand how to get to the bottom line and protect you, your money and your identity.

The Bottom Line

If you are going to play online lotteries, be very careful who you play through. Check out the small print in the terms and conditions. Do your research! Scammers have found this a very lucrative exercise. Once they have your personal details and/or your credit card details, it can be very hard to reverse the situation.

The most important thing is to ensure you use a reliable, trustworthy online concierge site. Whether you do the research yourself or use us, do your research. Playing lotteries online is great fun – so make sure you can enjoy it confidently.
