Facebook Lottery Scam 2023 – Don’t Fall for It!
Social media is no stranger when it comes to scamming people, and it didn’t take long before the lottery was a prime candidate. While many people are savvy enough to avoid rackets like this, it seems some are still falling prey to the Facebook Lottery Scams.
In past decades, scammers used letters to send out messages to unsuspecting members of the public, to extort fees and money from them. Latterly, since the rise of the internet, email has been a prime target. Now, social media is the latest in a long line of ways for criminals to try and con people out of their money. The favored platform to do this is Facebook and, if you were in any doubt about how it happens, read on.

Facebook Lottery Fee Scam
Scammers will typically try one of three methods to try and steal money from people.
‘Official’ Facebook Emails
You check your email inbox, and it looks like you’ve got an official email from the social media platform informing you that you’ve won a lottery prize (even though you’ve not entered one). The email will seem to be genuine, but they aren’t. They come from an email account that has been hijacked to make it look like it’s from an official Facebook account. You’ll be asked to make contact with an agent (a criminal) who will demand money from you when you try and claim your prize.
You may get a friend request from somebody you don’t recognize, and if you choose to accept (which you should never do), the person will claim to be an official from Facebook who is contacting you with a fabulous offer of money. They’ll implore you to follow their instructions, which means you can claim your ‘prize’ – this will usually involve sending them a fee to do so and involve clicking on a fraudulent link. They’ll take your fee and then disappear.
Friend Requests from Real-Life Friends
You may get a friend request from someone you’re already friends with or someone you appear to know in real life. It looks like there’s perhaps been a glitch on the site, and they’ve unfriended you, but they haven’t. Once the request has been accepted, you’ll get a message from that person telling you you’ve won a prize and to click on a link and send money to claim it. In reality, fraudsters have cloned your friend’s Facebook account and are using it to pretend to be the person you know. Sometimes, the fake lottery messages may come from a friend’s account that has been hacked, in which case, report the page and let your friend know as soon as possible.
So you’ve seen how it can be done, but here’s what happened to a few real-life people who were conned by these heartless scammers.
Facebook Lottery Scam Victim #1
Facebook lottery scam victim John was conned out of $200 to claim a fake ‘lottery prize’ that seemed so legitimate it had both he and his partner convinced.
John received an official-looking email that had a copy of a check for $1 million in it. He was convinced it was above board and legal, and he and his partner felt they had genuinely won a huge cash payout. “We actually thought this would be coming,” he said, speaking after news of the crime was released. John wired $200 for the shipping fees the scammers said were necessary to process and send on the payment. Once he sent that, they requested more. “It could have been a lot worse if I had paid that $1,700; I would have lost my house and had my utilities shut off.” John (whose name has been changed to protect his identity) commented
An agent from the FBI who turned out to be fake promised John the lottery was legitimate, but speaking to the Special Agent afterward in charge of Omaha’s FBI Field Office, Randy Thysse, said, “We are not allowed to photocopy or scan in or send by email or social media our credentials.” If anyone claims to be from the FBI and asks you to do this, they are fake and should be reported straight away.
John added, “It’s all a big ruse. It makes it look legitimate, but it’s really not.” Facebook uses automated systems that should stop most hoaxes and block scammers, but they aren’t infallible. The advice from the site themselves and the FBI is that if you get targeted, report it to Facebook and the police straight away.
Facebook Lottery Scam Victim #2
If something sounds too good to be true, then it more than likely is, and that’s the message police are trying to hammer home after an innocent man from Norfolk County lost $100,000 in an appalling act by cowards instigating a different Facebook Lottery Scam.
A spokesman for the police in the county said they’d received word from an extremely embarrassed, angry, and upset man who’d been conned out of a six-figure sum throughout two months by scammers who had illegally targeted him with the promise of a big lottery payout. The man said he received an alert on Facebook telling him that he had won a huge prize and claimed it; he needs to forward the money to pay off fees for claiming and tax.
“Once you see any type of indication that people are asking for money… the red flag should go up,” the Police Spokesman said. “It’s a scam.” He added that there had been plenty of reports of similar scams in the same county with victims of all age groups being hit.
CTV technology analyst Carmi Levy backed up the police spokesman and added
“You need to keep your eyes open when you’re using Facebook, as well as when you’re online in general,” he said.
The advice is not to give any money or personal information out to anyone you don’t know who comes to you claiming you’ve won a lottery prize, especially if it’s for a draw you have never heard of or know you’ve not entered.
Facebook Lottery Scam Victim #3
In California, the police warned about Facebook users being targeted for hoax lottery wins after a couple who believed they’d won a substantial sum sent $495 to scammers via MoneyGram. Of course, the prize didn’t exist, and the couple was cheated out of a great sum of money. The “Facebook Lottery Splash Promo” scam is yet another lottery scam set up to fool innocent victims.
The couple had received this message and had urged anyone else who gets it to report it.
“I’m Marydale Massey, located at Menlo Park California, and I work for Facebook Security Operating Inc. Have any of our online agents informed you about the Facebook lottery splash promo? Well, I am pleased to inform you about the online Facebook promo organized by the CEO of Facebook and all Facebook officials. The online drawing was conducted by a random selection of Facebook profiles by an automated machine; then, your name was selected for the drawing. Have you heard from our office that you are the 2nd grand prize winner for this year’s ongoing Facebook Promo?”
One scammer has even claimed to be the co-founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg as proof of the lottery’s validity! Sheriff’s office officials from California have commented that other Facebook users in the county have reported getting similar text messages like the one above. If you receive one or know anyone that has the advice report it to Facebook and the Police.
Hi all. So I was ALMOST scammed, and supplied this info:
FULL CONTACT ADDRESS:
MOBILE PHONE NUMBER:
YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS:
And supplied a photo. What an idiot. Never paid the $1500 though : )
What are the implications of supplying this information?
Today I’ve also received a message from a friend saying the exact thing and ask the agent to provide me with answers I asked her and she told me to send 500rnd Gift card to receive my prize also send me a video of what the box looks like so I went on google and searched but nothing now I know this is really just a scam yor people trying to manipulate people just to benefit from it for themselves its shame really anyways i told her im unemployed where should i find the money she said i should make a plan and its for the Peoples Post Lottery i googled her name on it and find nothing so pls peeps be careful she think I’m stupid well she made a fine mistake im reporting her on Facebook now
One of my FB friends texted me telling me I’d won a jackpot. He saw it on a list when they delivered his money. Click on this link and ask about it. Tell a so called agent texted telling me I indeed had won just send $300 to get my prize of $50000. I did not fall for it then looking back on the friends messages they had all disappeared. Nothing suspicious there🤣🤣 if it sounds too good to be true — It Is
I also received a message saying that I won 800,000 and that I need to pay 600 to DHL for delivery
I received the same notice
Hi I’ve just received an email from DR. DAVID ANDERSON
FACEBOOK PROMO COORDINATOR that I have won $500,000.00 from FACEBOOK MEGA REWARD PROMO draw, they haven’t asked for any money or bank details to claim the prize but asking for my personal details, could anyone tell me whether this is a legit or fake email, please.
I actually received same a text message from a Sheryl Sandberg a chief operating officer of Facebook, claiming I won a Facebook drawing of a total of $600,000 so I looked the name up and it did show she was legit from Facebook, so I replied to her text asking what do I need to do she claimed nothing that a FedEx agent will get ahold of me to deliver the check/cash, and he just did he says he’s a FedEx agent that’s to deliver my winnings to me, and all he needed was the address he would like me to drop if off at bcuz I have to sign for it so I asked him some questions, I asked him if there was a number I can call him and give that information to and reply and said no we can’t have any incoming phone calls, right there I knew it was a red flag bcuz what FedEx worker says that there’s not a number he can be reached at especially if he works fo4 FedEx there’s always. Number.. So I’m happy I actually found this site of people sharing the same experience bcuz I thought at first that it might just be real especially when they weren’t asking for any money from me. But it’s just a scam go figure my luck… so please be careful and make sure u always ask questions n look n see if there’s any other online information about it
I have also received this scam #Hello , my name is Micheal Beal from FedEx , I received your package from the chief operating officer of Facebook Ms Sheryl sandberg ….nice meeting you

Mark just text me and said that I have won lottery. Ci is texting me at a 202-673-1263 at 2 am on Feb 16th.
I just today received a text message via my cell phone from Lee Nelms saying that I won 500,000.00 dollars from Facebook Promo Lottery. They have not asked for any money yet. But he told me to download crypto .com app, and then send him my bank account information.
I was scammed from September 2020 to June 2021 by people on WhatsApp claiming to be Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg. Overall I had given them $14k and I still have the acceptance letter and ATM card they sent saying in order to activate I have to send them another $30k. I finally asked WhatsApp to verify the numbers and they said the numbers are unauthorized.
I’ve a scammer now telling me I’ve won $500,000 through the Facebook lottery. They want $450usd to release the funds and a further $1200 for FedEx to deliver it. Why can’t these people be stopped? I’ve not paid I’ve just said if they can help me out with paying what they need then when my winnings come through I will return the favour It’s fun as they are angry that I will not comply
A co-worker actually claimed that she had received her winnings from Facebook. She paid $400 and $1000. She even ignored people that told her that she was being scammed. She had me try to claim my winnings. I did $400. By the time I almost paid $500, I was informed of the scam. My coworker still insists me of following through. Facebook was going to report me to the FBI. I contacted Walgreen where I loaded the $400 into an Apple gift card. They reassured me that this was all a scam.
I was contacted by Agent Thomas Clark and my name was on the list so he said and did show me a list the problem I had was he said he needed my Facebook password, we were admitted about the code that was sent to me I gave him the code without ready what it truly was he wanted my Facebook password I told him to hold on when I came back to my phone he had changed my password to Facebook and messenger that is what saved me I became very suspicious. I lost my husband in late just and a good friend moved on my property to help me with it all 80 acres he robbed me and my neighbor blind thousand and thousands of dollars this helped me also to be Leary I’m glad I told the guy I needed a day to get my funds in order he sent me a list of grant money I would be getting and the amounts I would get if I paid certain amounts it didn’t feel right but it’s too late for a friend who paid 500.00 for a 50,000.00 grant so he was told. It’s a shame they take advantage of people who are poorer, sick, old age, grieving, etc. They hurt so many who truly doesn’t deserve it
I’m am now being aware of the scammers as they’ve told me I’ve won a car and a Facebook Jeep Cherokee and a million dollars and a 2021 Rolls Royce Lesley frank coach
you can add me to your list this GRACE ANDERSON said she works for you and that I had won a large sum of money she said the FBI would not let them move I untile 1000dollars was paid she scammed me out of it and she showed me all kind of certificates and pictures of the oner showing I had won she is still insisting I won this money and wants 450 dollars for the I R S. does this woman GRACE ANDERSON work for you?
She is an ordinary scammer.
I’m in Ireland & am speaking with a scammer now called Philip Powell who just pm’d me to say I’ve won an fb jackpot & to click on the link to claim my prize
It was just yesterday 11/03/2021 when I received my fake Facebook lottery scam. I just about believed it. It seemed so official and legit. I didn’t notice at first because I just scanned the message quickly but after slowing down and reading it again I noticed the spelling and grammar errors. Said I had won a million dollars. I did continue to the 2nd step but didn’t complete it. The reason this one seemed more real is that they never asked me to send money. But they wanted a lot of personal info. Including name, phone number, e-mail, physical and mailing addresses, annual income, marital status, if I were employed or not, and my comments on how it felt to be a big winner. I thought no wait a minute, I’m not filling out any of this info. I’m going to do some checking on this because I was told once that if it seems too good to be true it probably is.
I think if we can be put in Facebook jail for a limited time as punishment for a minute incident, then these scammers should get a lifetime sentence.
No one can imagine the relief I felt knowing I had won this money. (supposedly) because my husband has cancer, 3rd stage. We owe so much it’s not even funny. It was our answer to all of our problems less cancer. I could have made him very comfortable and happy for whatever days God had has given him yet to be with us. So thank you Facebook for another scammer being allowed to hurt someone else. Signed,
Gladys E Jerkins
Well they tried to get me too, and I don’t know how to report it
FYI – received a text from arthurclar84(at)gmail.com stating I won 975K from Facebook Online Sweepstakes ticket # 47061725 and I need to reply to sean.mark(at)fb-lottery.us Guess I need to tell my boss I’m retiring LOL!
My scammer was not professional which was a tip off the way he texted I should say the words were not correct the spelling the punctuation, he was very persistent antsy, kept calling me ‘are you home’ ‘did you get my message’. so I knew right away something wasn’t right. If someone calls you or send you texts and it’s not legal sounding beware
Yes, that was MY first tip-off, the TERRIBLE English. He insisted on my bank account username and password and I told him that’s not necessary for E transfers. Either way, the $200 asking fee for “paperwork” got my attention Aas well AND I said good bye!!
FBI agent posing as a representative of the Facebook lottery. Cost me my home $21,000 in gift cards. I am 75. They accept debit or credit cards. Just gift cards because their office doesn’t use banks. Cost me the love of my life today. Cost me everything I owned. The first name is Michael. Always changing phone numbers. Swear this is a legal lottery and he isn’t a scammer. Always promises to deliver prize package within 5 to 6 hours after payment. Never shows up of course. Uses Mark’s Z name as proof. Sends copy of a bank with your winning money, you never get. Sends a picture of supposedly your bank debit card. Says he monitoring your phone. Monitoring your bank account. Every time I block his phone number, there is a new number having to pay for his FedEx Truck to get repaired before he drives to your house with your prize package. Pay for gas for his FedEx truck before delivery. Never shows up of course.
I received text saying I won a huge sum supposedly from Sheryl herself..saying it would be delivered by fed x..

I was contacted by someone claiming to be Sheryl Sandberg on WhatsApp and when I blocked them, someone claiming to be Mark Zuckerberg texted me saying I had blocked his associate. The fake Sheryl then appointed me to a “FedEx agent” on google hangouts who asked me to send him a total of $14k worth of e-cards because the FBI and IMF were withholding the money. After paying the “fees” I was sent a “package” with a congratulatory letter saying I had won a Facebook Lottery and have to pay $30k more to get the 4 digit pin to “activate” the ATM card given. I then looked up the Facebook lottery and discovered that it is all fake.
I will never understand getting scammed, makes no sense people.

But when you need their help they are never there This person was pretending to be Mark Elliott Zuckerberg, I kept them on most of the day they actually sent me the information to where and who I was to send the 1000.00 dollars to is there anyone interested in any of this information.
I received a text from a number and it said:

They will never know how much I needed that for my husband’s cancer treatments and we have no insurance. I got so excited for Nothing.
Newest Facebook scam peoples postcode lottery, agent called Mark James tells you that you’ve been chosen by CEO for a prize normally thousands, but then later asks for £500 Amazon gift card, to confirm your money. Don’t fall for it
How is it that our ex-president can’t have a FB account but these scammers that aren’t in America and shouldn’t get access to us are able to if china can block their people from seeing and using part of the internet why we can’t keep these scammers from other countries from getting on our web doesn’t make sense.. Wade Boone Cleveland Ohio 44135
A recent scam that came to me was I’ve won money in a lottery from Facebook From Miss Sheryl SandbergAnd FedEx Delivery man Michael Beal Would be delivered to me within 6 to 12 hours after I pay the fee that it took to have the delivery of $550 I said fine C.o.d./ be careful till the fee came/ They were very Convincing /Rick Carlisle this was from Rick Carlisle true event that happened just recently
Hi, my name is I Live in South Australia.. Nearly 3 weeks ago I started getting messages on Hangouts one of them was from a person saying her name is Susan Desmond and that she works for Facebook am she told me that I have won a Ford Ranger and $10.000.00 in cash then I received a message From someone saying there Mark Zuckerberg from Facebook in hangouts saying the same thing and that it all was 100 percent legit and that I have to send 3 cash cards From 3 different shops worth $100 each to claim my car and prize so I asked them both to do a live video chat with me as I didn’t believe a word of it so they tempted to do this video chat with me it was meant to be Mark Zuckerberg funny thing was it was one of his meeting for some big advent that the scammers must of recorded of Mark Zuckerberg and there was some else speaking to me making out they where Mark funny thing was this so called Mark had an Indian accent.. I have told these low life scum that they’re scammers time and time again yet there still messaging me saying that there still waiting for me to send these fee for my prizes how is it that for the past 8 years’s I have won this lottery promotion.. yet theses scammers are still not in jail. wow, it’s not rocket science to put a stop to this Scam or any of them from doing this to people the solution is dam easy to stop these criminals.
I nearly fell for this very clever scam. Supposedly I had won $.5000.000 and if I paid the fee of 650.- to cover the cost of sending it I get a cheque or an ATM card. I got as far as setting up a money transfer with Western Union but I got cold feet and started a search. I’d like to know what is the best way to report this sort of thing. Yes if it’s too good to be true then it probably is. So be careful people I shall write something on my Facebook page.
I have been told the same, 300 in eBay cards, to release the money
I’ve been contacted that I’ve won a million dollars and a car from Facebook is it a scam
I have been contacted by someone claiming to be Mark Zuckerberg and from Christopher Wray of the FBI I was asked to send money and like an idiot, I did on the promise that my delivery would take place within 5 hours then I got a message from Mr Wray wanting 300.00 dollars to pay for gas for them to make the delivery I refused and they said it at all been paid but 50.00 dollars so I sent them 50.00 Google Play card and now they want another 570.00 for insurance after I was told they had moved my winnings from California to New Jersey with no insurance now they are saying it for my own good and for the protection of the winnings package. It was not protected from California to New Jersey do why does it need protection now do not trust anything you are told I learned the hard way. I’m also on a fixed budget and take care of my son with a traumatic brain injury a husband who is in a wheel chair and a grandson with other health issues
I have asked if this real to send me a ATM card and they have refused saying it’s for a cash delivery. Something definitely needs to be done to stop these people. I filed an IC3 with the FBI and after 2 weeks I called them and was told they did not have the time to investigate every complaint do that is a dead end also
Thank you for letting me tell my story about Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook
I was contacted, on FB, by “People’s postcode lottery/ William Barr claiming agent” YES that William Barr! When I asked for proof that I wasn’t being scammed, they showed me an official-looking government ID of Mr. William Barr. I had to give them my FB password to verify my identity and I did make the mistake of giving them my DL# they promised $30,000. They gave me several codes and numbers to present to the FedEx driver upon delivery. Sounds great, all l had to do was pay $200 processing fees. I told them that I was a disabled veteran on a fixed income and didn’t have it. They said how “much do you have?” I said $25. They asked for $50. I said didn’t have it. So they said ok to $25. They instructed me to go purchase a gift card for $25 and call when I have it. I thanked them and said I would get back to them asap. I wonder how long they will wait? How desperate can they be to try to scam $25 from someone on a fixed income?
I had just received one and it’s going to what’s up at they didn’t ask me to send them any money they just asked me for my name age date of birth and my address then they said within 48 hours they would arrive with $15,000
Thank you for contacting Agent Derrick Jones from Facebook User Reward 2021!! How may I help you?
This is what I got sent to me
I was just contacted by someone on Whatsapp claiming to be Mark Zuckerberg himself, even sent me a copy of his driver’s license. Claims that I was one of the winners on the Facebook Lottery 2021. Says he is not asking me for any money, but I still don’t trust him.
Same as Aubrey Miller……The name of the individual was Cindy Cook. I went through the whole conversation so I would have as much evidence as possible when I forwarded the information to the Attorney General. She wanted a picture of my driver’s license which I sent after redacting the license and the DD number so they could not steal my identity. I received a picture of the Certificate congratulating me and informing me my ATM card with the winnings would be delivered. We will see what happens next…. Just as I suspected…they wanted me to pay the $350 fee. I am not an idiot! After I reported everything and made copies of all the evidence, I blocked her on my account. I knew it was a scam from the start and I am hoping the authorities find her and put a stop to her illegal activities!
I got an email saying they were Joseph and Susan Dixon and they won the lottery and wanted to share it with me….Is it a scam?
I received the same email, saying that Joe and Susan Dixon, lottery winners, had my name on their list of people with whom to donate some money. Sounds like a scam. Here’s the email address that the message came from: Joseph & Susan Dixon
I got the same one and I responded and they sent this lengthy paragraph about how legit this was.
I received the same email. I always think it’s effy when I don’t see my email in the header or specify my legal name in their text
Me too! It’s a scam
Ditto, received same email today
Congratulations. We have been expecting you to contact us, I am Agent Frank Smith, FJP program Winning money director and your name was among the short listed lucky people of the year and we have been looking forward to contact you so that we can notify you about your winning. Please get back to us if you are ready to claim this fund in order to give you your claiming requirement?
I received a friend request today from a woman called Jessica Harrington, I asked her if she played a game called GOT & what level she was on. She answered by saying she was assigned to approach me by Mark Zukerberg at Facebook Head office, she said she was the COO. I checked and found she wasn’t. She said she had some vital information about my FB account, I asked more questions which took a while for her to reply to. After a bit of tooing and froing she told me about the Poole draw and I had been chosen to win.
I knew from the beginning that she was fake and I blocked her but then unblocked her to see what she had to say and let her think she ‘had drawn me in. Now I have decided I will block her when I able again. Trouble is she will no doubt try someone else.
I got a text saying I was one of the winners in a Facebook Powerball random lottery they wanted my full name, address, Facebook address and password, my occupation etc. I knew it was a scam so I ask him the same questions, to provide me with his real phone number and photo ID, Location, and his position with the company so he can be verified, So I can visit his office to see for my self and receive the money personally. Needless to say, I never got a response back. Also, they always end with “OK? after every sentence. Winnings should never cost anything to receive them.
I just received the same text but mine was from someone telling me they had won and saw my name on the list. Then said I should contact the agent in charge of the lottery. Lol. I don’t think so!
Received a Facebook message from Heather Jacob claiming to work for the California Facebook lottery agent, wanting me to claim my prize of $500,000 I never sent them money, I just reported her and blocked her. Watch your Facebook accounts

Just going through a Samsung situation where I’ve won $800,000, a cell-phone, a laptop and a t shirt, AFTER I pay $380 shipping to UPS.
Hi, I have been approached by a Powerball lottery team saying I have won 300.000.00, want 700 pounds to deliver this money along with an apple laptop.
A random on Instagram told me, “A friend of mine just got a message from the Facebook/Instagram that she won a winnings prize now and he was ready to get it.”
Then told me to email markzuckerbergfund(at)gmail.com to see if I was a winner.
Happening to me now. Thru INSTAGRAM. Same mo Facebook / FedEx connection
Julie lynch on Instagram claimed she was sending me 300,000.00 then wanted a 100.00 for a delivery fee visit text message.
well I had this girl last night saying I had won $600.000.00 and a jeep and that it was with the CEO Mark ZUCKERBERG TO SEND even had the batch No FB-0051/994 Ticket FB-962-66 serial E4AF3748-2015 and lucky number look good untill I was ask for a payment to send it of £400 pounds in 24hours they even know your Facebook account somehow did not send money as they wanted me to get cards which I said I can not get but she keep on now I have saved all the emails and pictures her name is Susan Hancock from Facebook and she was on Instagram look out for her says she is working on behave of Mark and FedEx its a scam so look out for her do not pay
we were contacted last night and when we told this Linda we didn’t have the 800 she had my husband open a cash app and she is going to send money to that app so we can use that to pay the FedEx driver who she will have call us and he will then give us a pky of 300,000, Can this be real?
FedEx doesn’t have a currier service. Just their regular deliveries. Drive, route, packages. No, $500 fee for anything. I spoke to them this morning. They don’t do this.
Was contacted by a woman named Joanne who says she works for Facebook/Instagram said i won a boat load of money but wanted a $700 dollar delivery fee From Fed Ex. got this thru a text message on my Phone. So beware she has been ruthless to get money from me! not happening!
They have contacted me again for the Facebook lottery scam their names are Maryanne Wilson CEO Broos Foote and Ela Smith plus a phone number 1-510-863-4167 from Alameda California They have sent pictures of Mark badge Plus FedX loads the trucks I don’t understand why FEX hasn’t done or started their own investigation
They almost got me. Thanks to this site, they did not get me. Saved me $250.00 that I would have sent to get a $1,000,000 check that would only be good to wipe your rear end with.
I have been contacted by a Guillermo, Hernandez C says he needs my personal info bc I just won the lotto that Facebook was having. He showed me a Facebook Identity badge that says he is a Lottery Claim Agent. Very persistent. I hope someone can investigate this. Unfortunately, I got a fake message from Mark Zuckerberg a cpl wks back but he got my personal info from me. So now am worried!
Got the same here I reported “Flagged the account” It didn’t get taken down. And Sandra Williams.
I have been contacted by a woman named Lisa Moore who claims to be an agent with Facebook & Instagram who claims I have won a huge amount of money and a fantasy new SUV. Can you tell me if this is the scam I believe it to be?
I have been told that I won a million dollars and a semi truck I want to know if I’ve really won something or am I being scammed
I’m from North Wales in the UK. I got this promo a week ago on my Facebook page and I gave him my email address. He’d said that I had won a substantial sum of money and that he needed £200. So I googled Facebook Jackpot Promotion and found on it that it was all a scam. Thank you very much Google I would say.
I also got the same message via text from Gillermo C. Hernandez. He sent a picture of his driver’s permit. He is on Facebook with a profile and the same Pic. If you message him on Facebook he will return the message. I sent $350 via Paypal to Martha Collings. But no more.
I am being harassed by a FB scammer saying I’ve won money and need to send him $300 I’m not sure were to send all the documents he sent me I guess I will rake them to the police station
I was scammed out of $6500 from FedEx Delivery Agency and “” wanna be Mark Zuckerberg for a 5.56 million prize

Received notification through a friend that I was granted $250,000 from the Gates Foundation. All they needed was $500 for certifications and tax fees. Then, I would receive my money via UPS in 7 hrs, CASH. When I called this a fishing story the person felt insulted that I would question their Christianity. Friends account was hacked and it appeared I was talking to two people.
Sounds similar to what I am going through now Facebook jackpot promotion contacts FedEx through Facebook & FedEx Florida office unsure how real this is tho only willing to send 100$
I have received also notification of winnings $100,000 of which I was to pay $550 for taxes and fees. When payment is received they then would send the winning check on 7hrs FedEx special delivery. Intrigued I demanded a Facebook verification delivered. Nothing ever sent, hadn’t heard anything since
I was just contacted by someone pouring as Facebook police. Even posting official looking ID, gun and badge.
I have been so convinced that Sheryl Sandberg is really giving out a $1,500,000 prize that I’ve been stupid enough to fall several times in the last year as each time it seems real. Today I’m suppose to send $1,000 for fees to Sheryl Sandberg by bitcoin and receive my prize this morning. I have been contacted by her on Facebook messaging and since been chatting on Telegram. I’m scared that I’m being scammed again and it’s devastating to think I could be again.. you can’t contact anyone at Facebook which is truly awful with all the scamming going on they should have at least an email address so a person could ask or even do a video call with so you know the person is real. I don’t know what to do because it sounds like she is really Sheryl Sandberg.
FedEx doesn’t have a courier service for $450, space dollar sign 500 whatever. Just the regular drivers doing their regular job on the regular route day in Day Out. They do not have the services I was able to get through to FedEx and talk to a person there who told me to find out they do not have any services like that for any money.

Thanks for your response concerning your Facebook lottery winnings.
There are two options to receive your winnings. Firstly, our approved bank can issue an ATM DEBIT MasterCard in your favor, this will be delivered to your doorstep within 48 hours after the completion of necessary process, and the ATM DEBIT MasterCard will come with an already programmed access pin, whilst you will be required to change this pin to any four-digit numbers of your choice at any Automatic Teller Machine (ATM) point near you.
The second option, your funds can easily be wired to your nominated bank account, payment will be received after 24 hours.
For the onward progress of this transaction, I will await the option that suits you to receive your winning.

Also sent me personal information like address phone number old and new that I just barely changed
Was this sent to you from Michael Henson? They are trying to get me to send $3000
I spoke to a representative at FedEx this morning. I was able to get a concise answer to my question which was simply do they have a courier service for $450 $550 any amount of money. The answer is no they do not they have their regular drivers doing their regular route doing the regular delivery and that’s it
I think they tried to scam me today. They want 5000 rands so that they may pay me 350000 rands. They used my cousin fb name telling me I won. Thought it was true. But just to be safe I decided to phone my cousin. Now I can’t reach her and they say I must phone later and I don’t know what else. Its a scam
Received same scam
I have also been contacted by FacebookMark Zuckerberg and someone saying they are from the SFBI also a fed ex person. They said I won 6,000,000.00. So I am trying to figure out what I need to do cause they want me to pay Fed ex300
00 and I told them I don’t have it so he was going to pay it off my debit card I don’t have account savings or checking. So they wanted me to open up an acct. well, I ended up opening one thinking they were telling me the truth…Now I don’t know what I am supposed to do. Does anyone know what I am supposed to do?? As of right now, I am still dealing with them and I have their names and stuff…
I was just scammed or Amy Kimberly who said that she was with FB and was in charge of the organization that handles the Lottery. I was supposedly picked randomly to win millions. I said this sounds like the one from about 7-8 yrs ago by Sheryl the head individual again. I didn’t fall for it and didn’t fall for this. She sent me all kinds of individuals who claimed to have won, I told this Amy, that I didn’t believe that they were legit. I told her that I wasn’t interested, she said it was so legit, she proved nothing to me. Be Smart and Aware or they will convince you, I’m way too smart for them thank goodness. I kept asking her what the catch was, said nothing, Millions aren’t just given out for free, always a Catch!
Part 2: Now it is the year 2020. CEO Mark Zuckerberg contacted me and had me pay in gift cards to release $600,000.00 in Facebook Lottery. I met the compliance, but then he claimed the card used didn’t work. That’s when my red flag was up. I hold a Facebook Debit VISA Card, and he refuses to release the PIN because he couldn’t get $100 from the Google Card. I think he did.
Like in 2015, I received all the Lotter Documents and now I have the Debit Card. Videos, Photos, I copied and saved Hangout Transcripts. And Emails.
Combined with my over whelming evidence against Facebook, I intend as a consumer, to file federal charges against Facebook for Fraud, Extortion, Money Laundering, Scamming, which violates my civil rights under the FTC backed by Federal Law.
I’m seeking an attorney who will take my case and the numerous overwhelming evidence against Facebook on a Pro-bono basis, and intend to file a $1.5 Million Dollar Lawsuit against Facebook. facebook screwed the wrong man, for the 2nd and last time.
I have a FTC Case number with Mark turned in as a criminal.
Remember the old saying; beware of those who have nothing to lose; well as a victim of 2 counts of fraud by Facebook, that’s me. I demand justice, and I shall have it. Corporations are not above the laws of America. they think they are, but they can’t pay off every judge and prosecutor so they are not found guilty. It’s just a matter of time, till I find an attorney who knows Federal laws of USA and State Laws of my state, Washington.
Wish I had someone like you to help me as I’ve been scammed over the last three years now and lost £19,000.00
I know I’ve been stupid now but everything seamed real and I fell for it. As I’m disabled and have chronic depression anxiety and stress disorder they got me. They first got me three years ago ten days before my mom passed away from terminal cancer and I was at my lowest as I was loosing my best friend and everything went out of control and now three years later I’m £19000 out of pocket and in debt up to my neck and trying to raise my two boys on my own who has suffered because of my stupid actions.
Good luck with your case
I’m a victim by a woman promoted by Mark Zuckerberg, back in 2015. The funds were supposedly in Bank Of America, in New York City, NY. I paid $600 by Western Union. 2 other corporate executes backed her on this. then she said I had to pay over $1,400 to get the Facebook Lottery Prize. I didn’t have that kind of money and demanded a refund. Nothing heard from her again, yet, 2 months later, announced on Facebook she was being promoted. LOL, can I be promoted for committing fraud, extortion and money laundering? I think not. Its called Federal Prison time. (To be continued.)
Just recently I was on FB+some woman tells me I’ve won £4.000.000. Alarm bells!
Eventually, FedEx emailed me as did Mark Wotsisname.
Eventually, they/she told me to send £450.00 to FedEx. How can I report these mothers, please? Need catching, thriving scum.
Yes, I have already sent 2400 dollars in for a lottery winning Veronica Wray said she was my agent to get everything done for getting the winnings then she needed 10000 thousand more for the insurance money to get delivered 5hats when I called her bluff she is still in touch with me every day trying to get me to send the money still I told her to send a certified letter to me proving the lottery was legit but have seen nothing yet also I told her l didn’t cate about the winnings anymore and to send the 2400 dollars back and no hard feelings she still swears that the lottery is real to this day what should I do to try to get my money back my name is Robert Cain Tucson Az. please feel free to investigate
I have had 6 online messages from different people all saying they work for Facebook and saying the others were scammers. I also tried getting a fake fed ex employee to add to the scam. Not to mention they said the FBI and Homeland Security would be by if I didn’t cooperate and pay them their so called fee. Suffice it to say I am the one calling the FBI and reporting it with the messages and names.
I was just contacted by a
A Guillemo Hernandez
Pls investigate on your end
He asked for personal info via text
He told me I had won 959,000
I did receive a messge saying my name come up on my Facebook saying I had win £,80.00000 on a lottery my name was picked from list of people they then said I had to get gift cards I have already paid 600 they keep asking for money to me and my husband both said its a scam I sad I wont my money back and I will be contacting the police regarding this better but keep say I still got to pay 150 then it will be delivered I said they are not getting any more money from me
Marci, Indiana: Just received my own SMS message that says, “Dear winner, Congratulations your number was selected among the lucky winners for the Facebook Social Giveaway Lottery Grant. Click here for more details http:// bit.do/FacebookWinningGrant Lucky number OL/278/024/020.
Ok, so there it is, folks. If you would like to claim on my behalf… Just kidding, DO NOT!!! I am irritated that they texted my phone. The telephone number the text came from was (320) 250-6683. I am not sure if we should report these hoaxes to someone, or just ignore them.
Just received an SMS text message @5:14a.m. from +1 (469) 404-1811 stating:
“Dear winner, Congratulations your number was seleted among the lucky winners for the Facebook Social Giveaway Lottery Grant. Click here for more details http:// bit.do/FacebookLottery.” Of course I am not so gullible to believe that social media’s deep pockets would actually do a lottery. Nor am I so lucky to win a lottery. Anyways, here you go folks. Another one to lookout for. I swear, people piss me off something fierce.
I got a text about a week ago she said that she works for Facebook and I get money but I need to pay 599.99 to cape it save from other people I told her she was fake it was on the what’s up app she will not stop texting me on there she what me to get this money bad lol not that stupid
01/14/2020: I am currently playing along with a Facebook 2020 promotion scammer. I gave her wrong contact info and have been communicating with her for the past hour. I told her I would need a few days to come up with the money (Amazon cash card). I didn’t and never do click any links.
Is there someone I can report this to right away?
I’ve been scammed by this Lottery Scam myself. Yes I let myself believe this. I was told I won 12 million. I didn’t believe it at first. I was notified by a man named Neal Wolin. I sent him 4,000.00s then he told me that I owed him 2,500.00s so I did. Because he told me that’s all I need to pay to receive my winnings. Then he tried to tell me that he wanted me to send him 45.00.00 which is a lie. I told him that I wasn’t going to send him any money. Then I was turned over to Mark Zuckerberg. I told him that I’m broke. That I can’t send anymore money. So he said that he wanted to help me pay the 2,000.00s He wanted my banking account information. I told him that’s not happening. I told him that this is a scam. To make this short I blocked them
FACEBOOK PROMO LOTTERY Scam has spread to Singapore by Ms Caroline Jackson (claims to be Facebook Online Claiming Agent at messenger.com/t/caroline. jackson.75098364) who’ll congratulate you: “You have been selected as a winner on our Database System” and she’ll advise you to “invest a few thousand US$ to get winnings of a few hundred thousand US$ as listed in “approvedwinners.com/winning-prizes/” e.g. “You pay US$10,050 to get US$300,000”. Then, she’ll tell you to “pay ‘insurance fee of US$18,850’ before she’ll deliver your winnings to your doorstep”. Finally, she’ll tell you to pay an “endorsement fee of US$15,000” for your winnings from a ‘Castle Financial Security Company in UK’ – it’s too late to realize that you’ve been scammed after you had paid!!!
All Award/Lottery winners should know that most of these messages that you had received are fake and scammer are using some multinational company’s names to defraud people, so beware of such messages before you replied or sent out your personal data to anyone.

These scammers are now using other social media platforms to scam on Facebook lottery. I have been contacted on Google hangouts by 3 people so far. One is female the other 2 are male. All claim to be associates of Facebook and claim I’ve won 22 million and I have to pay a small delivery fee to receive it. They even claim the FBI knows about the lottery and encourages people to claim their supposed prize. I haven’t fallen for this because I researched it after the first contact and found it to be a scam.
This is happening to me to in hangouts she name is Jeni Williams she gives me the number of Headquarters of fb, so please if someone read this email me for help please help me on this email jonnagashi @gmail.com
I got a friend request from mega millions winner Dave Johnson on Instagram yesterday then he says he’s giving away 30000, but I have to get it FedEx to me, and there’s a fee of 300, is this a scam?
I just got the same thing! I was hoping it was real till they asked for a $245 payment for insurance. Now I’m fairly convinced it’s just another scam. Was the FedEx Agent named Ramon Carter? The lottery winner is Dave Johnson. Did you go thru with it?
I need to ask for help, I am jay stone, I’ve been getting a guy pretending to be from Facebook
And I located the lotto found the same picture, and he looks like him, and he paid a card now he fishing for money now I’m just not sure if I can get help I thank you!!!
Just received message from longtime friend… telling me how she won… when I message back she replied and all seems ok… but… they keep pushing for the ‘courier’ fee to be sent via e-wallet or cash send… decided to start googling… and I have now made copies of my chats and blocked person!
They tried to scam me using a friends messenger account when I questioned it the friend replied she had received a payment it all looked very real but I declined their offer.
I’ve just had a friends messenger account duplicated and they tried all this with me! But it never git to as far as they’re asking for a fee, I smelt a rat as my friend is dignified and never called me ‘honey’ etc!!
I just wish that FB had direct tel no so I could have spoken with them, or made they’re reporting if it clearer?! It’ll take a while before they get on to my ‘friends account has been hacked into only to find when I finished that it will be used to enhance people’s understanding of it when it’s reported. I wanted action… NOW!! It’s so maddening!!
Ursula Gillies (aka Chris)
I was overwhelmed when I accepted a friendship of a beautiful woman. Suddenly she loves me and sending me her pictures with a kid next to her. Wow. She told me she was going to the shops and she requested the sizes of my clothing and shoes and postal address which I provided. The next day I checked on her account on Facebook and guess what she removed her profile picture. I sent her messages which she didn’t respond. She actually booked me and it was only a scam ????
I was just scammed. Today I got the message from a Daniel Walker, saying he was from PCH LOTTERY’S, on FaceBook. and also from Ellen Degeneres. she encouraged me to talk to him. ALL FAKE. I told them it was all a scam, hope you do the same. I would have had to send $2,000 for 100,000.00. Big Scam.
3235101176 is the number they contacted me from by text said that Mark Zuckerberg gave them my number for a 5 grand lottery winner lmao…
If you get someone texting you saying anything about Grant money and to give them your Facebook info it’s a scam. These bozos will stop at nothing to get a check!
My name is Sandy Hankammer work as facebook agent
Before i can proceed i want to know if you have heard about the Facebook online Microsoft promo going on and have you been inform about your winning?
Facebook INC number 6504762302
Then this came
Yeah, we don’t really know how much that would cost you. So you can Text Mr. Williams Hurlson from FedEx in charge of the delivery (929)399-3617 then text him the information stated bellow to enable him attend to you.
He sent me pictures of my package at FedEx and a picture of a computer scream with the tracking number blocked out I asked for the number he said no I asked for a picture of the shipping label also no response I know this is a scam bug the longer to keep them busy that’s maybe one less person scammed
I got caught up in this yesterday. A PM from an old friend saying he had seen my name on a winners list for the FB Compensation Lottery while collecting his winnings. I followed his advice and contacted their “agent” and followed the process through interest. Got as far as them giving me their bank details (name, account and sort code) so I could transfer a sum of money to cover the taxes, letters of origin etc for the winnings and smelt a big hairy rat with the persons name. I then messaged my friend to confirm whether it was actually him that was sending the encouraging messages by asking him a question from way back in our past. It went quiet at the stage and we found his account had been hacked……I never sent any money but the scammers do now have my name, address and DOB. Fortunately, I kept the message trail and reported the incident to the Starling Bank with the details of their customer who was using an account with them to collect the fees. Hopefully their fraud department will shut it down and rescue any monies paid by other punters. Also post on my FB account and a group I belong to in case they started to use my name to con others.
Holland Anderson from FB said I won 600k, went through all the steps to receive my big win, yeah right. But I gave her the benefit of the doubt, I got some official looking docs, pic and vids for verification purposes. Then got a txt from the FedEx delivery team, all looked legit till they said to get 4 amazon card, 3-100, 1-50 to pay for the delivery. Having used FedEx for years, I asked why am I being hit up for 350 bucks for a 28 buck FedEx envelope.
So I’ve got scammed out of 350$ via money gram to these fake Facebook lottery people if you get this number (310) 596-2671 come across your screen report it. Do not believe these pieces of shit.
I am currently being contacted by a katerichards00 on Instagram who claims I have won $1 million and a Ford Truck. She has added me on google hangouts and I have given my personal details and a copy of my driver’s licence. She said they are going to send me an iPhone and I have to forward it to somebody else. Should I report this to the Police?

Got message from a friend saying she saw my name on a list I contacted the person now I am getting weird emails. one stating I won and he wants $ from me..another an FBI guy says I got $ wanting $
A “friend” contacted me about winning a FB compensation lottery, he gave me a link to a Susan Harrison- m.me/AgentteSusanharrison123
This Susan Harrison told me to buy a Amazon gift card of $500.00 after I get it to give them the confirmation number of card. Further more to give it to a Courier that will deliver me this $300,000.00 winning money check. Now this “friend” is angry that I called him a scammer.
Hi, I have also received messages from a Friend of mine which I am now not sure if her account was hacked, advising me that she has won and had to make a R30,000 payment to SARS in order to get her winnings.
I also spoke to Agent Bill Wilson who demanded money before I can get my “winnings”, I just said leave it I am not interested and reported both their numbers.
I got a message from Agent Bill Wilson saying I’ve won R250 000 0000 in the Mega Millions lottery…..scam
Jack from Netherlands
I was contacted om IG by Linda_Smith
Then I was texted by Mr.Mark Zuckerberg on Hangouts
I won 5.000.000 USD
Only thing I must do is pay a fee of 350.00USD to a bank account in Nigeria
I am not so stupid to this, but they keep on contacting me. It’s really a scam
Here is some more emails account of the Scammer’s this year!
Facebook Headoffice, Fox Mulder, george mason, Mark Madison, Susan Williams
My contact on Instagram’s name is Daniella and she said I won $500,000 and all I needed to do was send $450 for shipping to the following person: Jamie Koscher, Elkhart IN 46516. I looked up Jamie Koscher in Elkhart and he has a criminal record.
I have just been approached by Anna Engelbrecht in South Africa to pay R5000 for delivery of prize of R800000.00 which I refused as did not seem right. They first asked my name address bank name and id foto to be sent then they tell you about the delivery fee. Thus is so like fake scam as far as I can see.
I too was scammed. I received a phone text from someone who said that I had been chosen to receive a large amount of money from a Mr. Mark Zuckerberg. There was a feed it had to be paid so I paid it then I received pictures of former winners and also a picture of the credit card that I was to be receiving. This person eventually sent me the credit card but then told me that I needed to send them $6000 to get this card activated. Luckily for myself I haven’t paid this money in my wallet and I still have the Zuckerberg. There was a fee that had to be paid so I paid it then I received pictures of four were winners and also a picture of the credit card that I was to be receiving. This person eventually sent me the credit card but then told me that I needed to send them $6000 to get this card activated. I still have this card and him shortly going to be shredding it into many many pieces. I feel that this was a total scam and I’m glad I’m over and done with it
People watch out for a “Debbie Swanepoel” on Facebook. She’s scamming a lot of elderly people by contacting them in South Africa in Afrikaans.
Watch out! She hacks your friends’ Facebook profiles and sends you a message that says “I’m your Facebook friend that won the Facebook Lotto and I also saw your name on the list of winners.” If you reply your friend and tell them that no one contacted you, they send you the Facebook profile of “Debbie Swanepoel” and tell you that you should immediately send her a Friend request.
Please, please, please!!! Don’t fall for this horrible criminal tactic. You WILL LOSE thousands and thousands!
To on Instagram got a request from a to follow me on Instagram I accept the request later the women kept message me and wanting to talk to asking me if anyone has confirmed or contact me on behalf Facebook and Instagram lottery that I have been one of so many winners I played along with for a big I finely asked well I really don’t think this is true and it is why are you going ask me for a fee to get my winnings she kept avoiding my question so I played along some more she sent so may picture of winners you could not really see there face I just reported her to Instagram blocked her now really if you won’t money in lottery I really fought your going to have pay for to be sent or delivering by special mail this really needs to stop the scammers do this
Unfortunately, idiots are born every day. My friend fell for this crap, even after I told him exactly how the scam would work. He sent these people money and said it was absolutely legit. Geez people, NOTHING is free, especially not $500,000. They took his money, disappeared, and when he contacted the Police, they basically called him an idiot. They will not even attempt to do anything as this is just idiocy on the part of the person thinking they won.
I was given a facebook lottomaxpromotions.webnode which had my name as a winner and to fill a claim form. You sent $950.00 to claim $15.000.00. Apparently by paying this amount it was said to be tax free and would be received in 48hrs. I have not done this of course. Has anyone else seen this?
Hi …my friend done this and swears its ok she has been receiving checks. Said my name on the list..i went through it at the beginning..then before ups deliver they needed insurance money 20% of the amount to release the funds. So i stopped..my friend and the agent still pressure me to go thru it. Aghh..enough i lost big amount that i have to find a way to pay it back.
NADIA CON’T..What I don’t understand is my friend received a cheque and has been cashed no problem from bank. How long will it take the bank to find out this fraud? That’s why my friend feels is good and got mad that I stopped before losing more money. We lost our friendship over this.
This is GILL from THE FACEBOOK / INSTAGRAM LOTTERY ORGANIZATION I have some GOOD NEWS for you.
Scammer sends text message
I think it should stop because they are robbing pennyless people who are winners in England then ask for thousands of money ok it be stopped before someone else who is going to be victims of the this like me
I just received a Messenger text by my late uncles wife whom I have not heard from in years stating that she won $200,000 from Facebook lottery promising me that it was not a scam Earlier this evening once I told them that I forwarded the phone number sent to me to the local police department here in South Carolina I did not get a no the response from them I knew it was a scam these people need to give up and stop doing shit like this and get a regular job
I’m in the middle of all this attention right now, Facebook lottery of $5000,000 they are very persistent asking me to send $5000 US to release the money, it sounds very dodgy, definitely a feeling about all this.
WARNING: Bishop Garcia from Instagram claims to be from Facebook Corporate demanded $300 Amazon Gift card to activate undisclosed winnings from Facebook Lottery. This is a scam. Several fake and photoshop pictures were sent claiming to be winners. Instagram is filled with scams for Facebook and Cash Flipping. All of these get rich posts are fake and will only cost you money.
I started using Instagram for the first time in about 4 years. I was contacted on there about being one of 5 people to win 500,000 dollars in the Facebook lottery. he was very consistent and pushy. justinj something was his name. sent me pictures and a video of supposed previous winners. I kept telling him that I wasn’t interested anymore and he kept insisting that I take it and send him my info. didn’t lose any money and never sent the info he wanted
I got a message on hangout saying I won $5000,000 from Google/Facebook lottery it all look real they wanted $400 for a delivery fee but when they started to say I couldn’t tell anyone I knew it was a scam
I was also contact by a lady Petro Coetzee and luckily I said no thank u for their offer. Also a friend of mine was hacked and send me messages of her winnings and when I called her we realize that her facebook is hacked
I had this happen to me to saying if I send 200 I would get 650.000 ya right I send nothing I knew it was a scam from the start
I fell victim also, some lady on facebook claimed she seen my name on a list under hers shawna porter in tulsa okla. some man named john fields had my info. and gave me his number. well they blew my phone up with texts and promised me a mercedes benz a house then 100.000 dollars, then it went up to 250.000, sunday I purchased a google play card with 80.00 and took a picture of it and sent it to a john fields in california, palo alto so they beat me out of 80.00 and they want another 950.00 on the first??? some nerve why dont the FBI shut these people down???
Well, I just got a message from a friend I have known for year’s saying she just won $70,000 in lotto max but she says it a company that helps. You pay your Bill’s or by a house got a number to text the agent. To apply for this help says it comes in 224. Hours by check or cash this agent has been processing information for 2 hours now she hasn’t asked for any money or anything she says she has to. Mail my information to the company it took maybe 5 mins to answer the questions and text it back to her k gotta feeling it’s a big time scam here because I asked her she was gonna go pick him and his family up I get s thumbs up and told maybe the agent is still processing your information
HERE IS MY STORY I have had texts to my phone saying I won the Facebook annual lottery in the sum of 700000 dollars and a new truck and the wanted 550 dollars sent to a name in Nigeria first and then persisted to saying I could pay a USA FedEx the sum and receive my winnings is 24 hours this is the second time I have won the supposed Facebook lottery I don’t fall for it I am on a fixed income and any money I would be scammed out of is a big deal it’s wishful thinking but I am not falling for it watch out for scammers
I’ve been contacted by 3 different so called fb reps. They said I won 200,00in the lottery which I never entered. They need $800 for fees. I’m not going for it.
Hello, I have been scammed and lost $8700 dollars. The bad thing is that a friend that I thought I could trust told me to do this and I believed her. Red flags did go up but I thought my friend was telling the truth.
I have been scammed for $10 000 Australian dollars by FB lottery I would like to know where I should go to report and what I have to do?
I have been contacted numerous times about winning 650000.00.thrn they want me to pay them with Google play cards worth 750.00 then the last time offered to fly me to Menlo Park California. so I could collect it if I had won it would be free.
like what happend to me, girl told me won 60.000$ but i must pay 1000$ to deliver to me, i don’t what i should i do
Just won $500,000 in a Facebook lottery. All looked legit. Identification card and photo was for Susan Desmond Hellman. Wow! I’m so fortunate and lucky. THEN the problem of delivery fee. Not much, $275. But “Susan” insists that is the legal procedure. AND I never entered any lottery.
First, I was contacted saying I won the Facebook drawing of 800,000 U.S. dollars from a lady stating she works for Samsung company, and a Samsung S9 PHONE. She told me to deposit 650 dollars to Royal Bank of The Bahamas. Then I knew it was a scam. We in the Bahamas such bank does not exist. We have Royal Bank of Canada. So I knew it was a scam. Then a John Paul calls me of What’s App sounding like a Haitian national when he was speaking saying the same thing but he said that Samsung agent doesn’t work there anymore he was trying to convince me for like four days saying pay 450 dollars to money gram or credit union. Then he said I won 800,000 dollars just pay the fee and the money would be delivered to my doorstep. He said the fee is for the security to bring the money to me when they get off the plane at the airport. I still believe it right because that type of money can change my life, he had me so convinced but its just one jokey problem, I DON’T HAVE A BANK ACCOUNT,SO I HAVE NO MONEY SAVED, AND EVEN IF I HAD IT TO GIVE AWAY MY SHORE 450 DOLLARS FOR UNSHORE 800,000 I RATHER SPEND ALL ON RUM, FOOD AND CLOTHING BEFORE I DO THAT.
Yeah, johndardwin2 on insta is telling me right now I’ve been selected to receive 500,000… really??? Sent me pictures of random people he said were winners just like me living happily with their families….that’s nice.
I was just contacted by a beautiful woman that If I sent her contact info and whatnot that she will take it down and that FedEx will deliver the oversized check. They aren’t asking for a fee or SS info or credit card info. I even send backlinks to her about these scams and she claims Zuckerberg put these up to educate people about scams. Told her I’ll send info when I’m home but I don’t know what to think. They aren’t asking for credit card info, a few, or any SS number or anything. Not sure what to think.
I was contacted yesterday but googled it straight away. They contacted me via Hangouts which I thought was weird as if they were from FB, why not use Facebook Messenger?!?! ??♀️? idiots. Total scum-bags
I received an email from main @ fblottos019 stating I was winner of said $950,000. Said to email another for verification and funds release form. No cash was asked for. Is this one legit?
I had John maxwell senior admn. For Facebook international lottery!
Said I won 950,000,000!! Also, wanted my money fees put on google play card. Thank God I did not!! They wanted 270.00$
Beware people! This is just the cruelest scam!!!
I was just contacted by a Hillary H Miller regarding my “lucky draw” on Face Book Lottery. Luckily I googled it and saw it was a total scam. I do not think it will make a difference to report it to the police, because nothing will come of it. BEWARE‼️‼️‼️‼️
I think I have just been scammed through a friends FB messenger
My friend asked if I know that she won the FB lottery
Then she told me she saw my name on the list of prize winners too
I believed her because another friend told me this before because they had also won the lottery prize
They took money for the delivery
Then suddenly the delivery is not right now
Then I was asked for more money which I did not have
So I lost all I had
What made me suspicious was the way my friend talked in a way which was not her normal self
I had only 5 days to ou last amount
When I tried to withdraw the money I could not
I suddenly had to pay more
Please can anybody let me know more about this
I have been contacted and asked not to tell nobody and they want me to buy an iTunes card to activate my money that they say I won
I just had the same message on instant messenger but I think they must have hacked into a friends Facebook page. Small talk then asked if I knew she had won 80,000 from Facebook promo. I did block them.
I am the same an A Miller, contacted me thru messenger using a friend I sent $800 USD but they still wanted another 6250,00 and will not leave me alone they are still sending messages waiting for their money So sttupid
Yes, they are, they will never leave u alone. I’ve had so many texting me on emails, hangouts and some numbers just pop up on my phone saying that FB agents and FBIs. There still texting me to as we speak. I block them but they still come up with different numbers again.
I have one going on right now I got text and IDs from all the ones involved they say they or from Facebook, CEO Mark and one from Mrs. Sandburg a one from us attorney general with IDs and so on is it true or not I need to know who to report to
Everyone is talking about how they got contacted through messenger. I got contacted this morning on the direct line to my phone. Saying that my name was one of 10 that won the Facebook lottery. I have told her to leave me alone, but of course, shes consistant.. she says I don’t send any money, just my general information. Its information that, if u google me, u can get, unfortunately. This is also a scam, I’m sure. Since Facebook Lottery DOES NOT exist!
Yes I had a lady by the name of Kimberly Brokks to try and scam me I have screen shorted the entire conversation how do I report her
I was just scam and did some research about the lottery I’ve been scammed like the people above but I caught myself after reading the other complaints of the other people be careful I almost got caught India scam
I was scammed tonight thru messenger. Used a friend claiming winnings in a poker lottery promotion. She said she seen my screen name as a winner also. I was given a link to see if I could get my money. $200,000. I checked the link and a supposedly agent asked me questions. I answered them and he said FedEx would be delivering my money. I realized it was a hoax then. I blocked him from my messenger and calls.
I honestly think that this Facebook lottery thing is a scam.. sorry not sorry, but I have other things to do rather than feeling like I am being scammed. And I will not be harassed.
I was sent a message from my friend asking had I claimed my winnings. She said that my name was on a list and sent me info. I mailed a Juddy Gardner who was supposed to be an agent for facebook lottery winners. Sounded too good to be true.
She assured me it was real and legit.
I was believing untill asked to pay 550.00pounds on iTunes gift cards
I spoke to my friend this morning and she assured me I was not speaking to her. Her phone must have been hacked into. Is there such a thing ad Facebook lottery and claim via agent Juddy Gardner a high school pupil who lives in San Fran Sisco. Fortunately, I have not parted with any money. This person needs to be stopped.
Add Mary Jane Appricot to the list of FB scammer. She contacted me about an hour ago.
Something sounds too good to be true, then it more than likely is, and that’s the message police are trying to hammer home, after an innocent man from Norfolk County lost $100,000 in an appalling act by cowards instigating a different Facebook Lottery Scam.
A spokesman for the police in the county said they’d received word from an extremely embarrassed, angry and upset man who’d been conned out of a six-figure sum over a period…
I was sent the same Facebook text. I won 30,000.00. His name was Paul Steve from California. If I get a text from someone saying they are Mark Zuckerberg, I will not reply. This is definitely too good to be true.
505-600-8216 is a number used by scammers who send text messages claiming that an individual may have won a state lottery.
I’m talking to one right now.. this dude even sent me a picture of his ID card and pics of past lottery winners… I asked if I need to send money in order to get my winnings and he told me no… here’s his name Gillmero Hernandez. Here’s the number as well (650)785-2710
I’m talking to an agent from FACEBOOK saying I won money. But also asked if I want cashiers check or ATM CARD I said card next it was send money. Lol are u kidding me. So I can get it in 12hrs 16 hrs or 2 days each one is a different amount

I didn’t lose any money however I was reached today by text message by someone claiming to be a Facebook official Erskine B Bowling 567-698-8634 and another text saying they were Christopher Wray the FBI aware of my $2,000,000. Winning. 510-985-9153 I went along with them. I was sent pictures of a certificate with my name on it and the $ amount and even a picture of the FBI agent badge and himself. They requested $1500 for insurance and delivery fee for FedEx I told them I would come to pick up the check they said I would still have to pay the fee. I had my boyfriend call for me I’m not sure what he was told but he was very convincing!
December 20, 2018, I got a request to be friends to a friend on facebook. Well, then I received a message that she won a lot of money to contact this number because my name was on the list. Like hers was. So I did. The fellow was supposed to be an attorney. Government organization name Scott James. He said I won 50,000.00 but I had to pay $ 850.00 dollars then my money would be delivered by ups. The next morning. I told him I didn’t have it. He said I could go to Walgreens and get an american express card for $ 200.00 each and get 4 of them and a $50.00 dollar one. And he would message me on the 21 at 8:00 am in the morning. And they would deliver the money at 11:00 am the 21st. But I didn’t do it. I’m going to turn it into the police dept. And also facebook. So be on the lookout.
I have the same story but I got scam out of $4000 thousand dollars!
I just got scam out of $3550.00 dollars they said I won a $500,000.00 F B Lottery, they said to send this money and I would receive my Lottery in the Morning at 9:00 AM, then I contacted these jerks by their e-mail they well you owe another $500.00 so I can scam.

This happened to me today 600.000 I could really do with. That Cambridge analytica data breach is that why Facebook is giving away money.
I am not paying for delivery that’s crazy.
I was contacted by a woman using the name Lynda darling, she told me I had won 75000$ and I had to provide a pic and some information and pay a delivery fee and a tax fee in order to claim my prize, then wanted to know if I had online banking through my bank… Good bye not paying a dime or giving bank info
I too have been scammed but I never paid them a dime, I supposedly won $300,000 and a Mercedes. Henerson Manu was his name
I am one that got scammed to I was contacted in May and fell for it I got scammed big time about 10 thousand dollars and now in debt I want my money back!
I received a follow request on Instagram by a Lynda Williams posing as a Facebook Claims Agent usually would not accept such a request but In her profile it stated no delivery fees Only said winners certificate Approval Compulsory attached was also a letter from Mark Zuckerberg assuring the lottery promotion was legit. After googling am sure this is just another scam attempt
I got message from a Teresa Jones, while she was trying to scam me, I went through her fb account. Search pics she posted and found account was just created. I gave them the address, and email address and phone number for the state police. Then blocked account. LoL
I got a message from a Jamie Gabriella saying I won $800,000 through facebook Samsung lottery I knew it was fake I kept asking questions just to catch her out and I did big time she asked who I banked with so I gave her my beloved dead sisters account details of course it’s closed but she said we contacted your bank and they told us that it would cost you $380 for the cost of transfer. So I said listen here you scamming piece of shit our banks are not open on a Sunday and the details I gave you wasn’t mine so please go scam some other fool lady lol
It’s all fake. I deal with these scammers on a regular basis. I like to string them along by pretending I have fallen for their shenanigans and then call them out at the end. One of my favorite ruses is to ask them if they have my check right in front of them. When they say yes, I ask them why they just don’t take the taxes and fees directly out of my winnings since it makes no sense for me to send them the money. If they get evasive I ask them if they are trying to scam me. They will block me 99% percent of the time. Love playing games with these heartless turds.
A lady who is she was trying to pick me. Her name is Jayree Roberts, from New Zealand. She still keeping text me
I was contacted by Zuckerberg who wanted me to get 100 iTunes card to book the FedEx man then I have to send 800.dollars to claim my winnings why should I have to pay for something I may never get. I think Zuckerberg needs to stop scamming people
Super she saw my name and picture on the winning list, and that’s why she was messaging me. Such a scam!
Thank God I didn’t fall for it.
I was to scam by this FB lottery. They want 500 USD from me. By a guy I had sex with. I guess he wanted revenge. He pay out 1000usd. Got back 450.000.00 dollars. Where the hell did he come up with that money? Got me
Yes and right someone who says they are with Facebook said I won $ 500,000.00 dollars and send them $550.00 to get my winnings, but the way I can send money is to buy 6 amazon card 5 cards at $ 100,00 each and 1 card $ 50.00, then send from Walmart to Walmart and they will which Walmart to send to, But one thing I have saved 3 names and phone numbers they text me from. Please notify me.
I’m dealing with the same scam. I blocked the FB representative so Mark Zuckerberg contacted me using hangouts. He won’t give up trying to get me to claim my $500000.
He keeps trying me on hangouts as Mark Zuckerberg trying to tell me about 500000 win
They’re trying to scam me now on my phone saying I won 85,000,000 and show ed me an FBI badge and fake letter. They say they need my address name and occupation
I have a lady name is Savannah cox Facebook name never met or even heard of her she tell me I have won 500.000$ I need to send 100$ to Name: Christina L Corcoran
Zip code: 65608
Then she says she’ll pay 350$ so I can get my check in 24 hours mind you I did not fall for this at all but if you get an email from any of the 2 women don’t fall for it it’s a huge scam
Right now, I am poised to go to my bank in Stockholm where I reside to send via bank transfer the amount of $1550 as deposit for my Winning’s Prize of $80,000. The remaining amount which is $4,000:- as both taxes will be paid by a friend who lives in Ohio. This friend himself won $155,000 and paid $8,500 for the tax. He is willing to help me pay the rest of the tax amount which is $4,000:-
By instinct I decided to google and read about this Facebook Lottery and here it is…reading all comments. I have been cheated once for 3,000£ when I was doing research in Oxford University so I am extra careful. But the person who informed me about my winning prize has been my friend on Facebook for a long time. Has his account also been hacked. Please advise. They want me to pay today to keep my prize.
This happened to me today in Messenger! I knew when they asked for money to process the prize that it wasn’t legit. I was suspicious before that because as far as I know FB doesn’t do lotteries or giveaways, there was a couple of other things that didn’t jive but I don’t want to write about them because anyone can view these comments, including scammers. If I was a scammer, I know I would be reading what the internet has to say about how to spot lotteries, giveaways that are not legit, to up my game.
I to have just been spooked by this so called FB lottery from founder zuck but they have not asked me for any money they sent me picks of other so called winners
I also was reached through messenger that I won 200.000. By a Stiger Lynn she said she also won 200.000 and that I needed to contact Ricky Larson to get my winning prize. She said while picking up her winnings she seen my name and picture on the winning list, and that’s why she was messaging me. Such a scam!
Thank God I didn’t fall for it.
I know I’ve been saying about Facebook Lottery it seems so real but it isn’t

I recently became a victim of a Facebook lottery scam. I was told to buy iTunes cards, which came to $350 after I gave the scammer most of my personal information. Big mistake! I was told that it was legitimate, it was real, they weren’t trying to scam me. I should’ve trusted my instincts in the beginning.
I got one too said I won 600,000.00 and when all said and done I needed to pay shipping and handling insurance came to a total of $500.00 dollars will I still get messages they even said that the state police had been notified and so was the FBI are both aware of the winning. I told them to notifier my States police and have them come tell me well they ignored that like the plague and wouldn’t be responded to the question there pretty tactical so beware what you believe they should be locked up for this crime.
I got a message few day ago, she told me that i’m one of the winners for facebook lottery, i really don’t know her but i was about to send money for the fee and i’m not sure if this is true or what
My brother-in-law has been scammed by these ruthless facebook lottery scammers. Just this morning, he called me asking me to loan him the $2000.00 more than he owes for the taxes on his winnings of $550,000. He promised me he will give me $20,000 when he gets his check. I looked it up and found out it was a scam. I told him if he really won, they would take the taxes out of the winnings, not charge him beforehand. He won’t believe me, he’s already paid this person: Barbara Walker $6,000! Then, he gave her my number, she texted me crossing her heart that he is going to get this money in 24 hours after I pay her what he owes! She sent me a picture of a check made out to him from Chase Bank at 1 Hacker for an address. OMG, I told her I was reporting her to the proper authorities and to leave him and me alone! I wish Facebook would compensate my brother-in-law because he’s about to lose his house and sell his truck.
I’m getting messages from one of them right now saying I won 950,000,000 USD. Funny thing almost every photo they sent me was from the NY lottery or photos from FedEx. And I even sent them a link of where they stole the photo from
I got same message from ella julius. 4 days ago and now she wants 435.00 to claim prize
I also got a msg saying that I won 250,000 but for me to get the prize money I have to pay 3500 that’s a red light and I never signed up for any lottery for me to win anything so I blocked that person and reported his profile

My boyfriend and I were both messaged and sent friend requests by a Jane Alexander. Before she had time to type anything substantial I called her out but not before screenshots were taken and reported.
These people need to be stopped because I’ve noticed they really like to go after people with special needs. My boyfriend has the mentality of a 16 year old at best and they message him like every other day with new scams.
My name is Annamaria this lady came on my Facebook stating I won I am delighted to inform you that your Facebook profile was selected among our Lucky winners of 2018 who won the sum of $600,000.00 CONGRATULATIONS I know that’s bullshit because they did this to me before and it’s got to stop
Just this evening this lady going by the name of Linda Williams contacted me saying I won $500,000.00 from facebook lottery. She sent pictures of people receiving checks as well as debit cards and even videos from so-called previous winners. I confronted her telling her I was no idiot and she is still at this moment trying to convince me I won the money and saying I should tell no one about winning or it will cause my prize to be forfeited. I’m sorry but I can’t believe people fall for this…This Linda Williams Lady that contacted me is also sending pics of some statement supposedly sent by the FBI stating its ok to accept the prize and send money to receive my prize money. She is very persistent if nothing else. lol! It’s like she doesn’t want to take no for an answer even after I told her I was reading all about the scam online while she was trying to scam me. I also told her I was reporting her to Facebook and my local police department as she was still sending me messages.

Through messenger was informed of winning large amount. This was details naomi.herselman.33 I was asked to pay a large amount insurance money into Pep or Spar outlet to nr.0656004042 before prize money will be delivered by Bidvest coin. I think its a scam.
I had exactly the same message through Messanger from a Marianne Hall, also requesting payment of R2000 before my whopping prize of R200K will be delivered to me by Bidvest coin. I also think it is a scam. I first received a message from one of my facebook friends on messenger which was through another cell number not the one she uses on facebook asking if I heard the good news, which I knew nothing about. She said she won and sent me the link saying she saw my name and photo’s on the winning list when they delivered her prize. She requested I join the facebook page and send them my details to have my prize delivered.
I was contacted by a Debbie Williams saying that she works for Facebook and that i won $550000 in US. Is this a scam?
Talking to her now, been playing with them all day!
Had a Lady by the name of sharon_kate_23 said she would help me with half of my payment to help me get my money lol I know it’s a scam so I’m going to see how long I can play
A man by the name of Guillermo Hernandez stating he is a registered officer of Facebook, has been hounding me constantly, claiming to be a registered Facebook lottery Claim Agent, and wanting to proceed with claiming my prize. He sounds very convincing, although I have rebuked him more than once, even though he insists that it is legitimate.
I live in Texas my brother just received a text from someone at Face book with his full name and says he won 600,000.00 dollars. I told my brother be careful I did not know of a facebook lottery.

I think I just got scammed by a man calling himself Benndit Moore. Firstly I had to get 150 in tunes cards for shipping and insurance. Then there was a 550 dollars for something about a certificate for the irs. I paid it all. It was for 50,000 dollars. Because of this I will be out on the street. That was 3/4 of my rent money. A woman posing as Kati approached me on this. She is suppose to be living in Elliot lake with 2 kids.
I got an email from David Schulz, apparently Head of Disbursement of Facebook that my email was one of the lucky numbers drawn randomly and won $950,000. They want me to keep this secret. I am supposed to contact David Schulz by email – no telephone number.
I knew immediately that this is some sort of scam.
Sandra Johnson from Menlo Park, California assured me her Facebook card is 100% real and legitimate. How do I report her to Facebook?
This is a scam. I was just contacted and I was stupid enough to give my name and address. Hopefully nothing bad will happen.
I have a friend and 5 others actually got the lottery FB cash money of $150,000 after paying $1,750, they assured me it is real cash money. And told me I have to claim mine. I am so hesitant to do it after reading all about these scams.
They took my friend for over 2,500.00 plus today they told her she had to send them another 4,000.00 before she can claim her 150,000,00, and she’s going to send it to Anthony Berry guy who is scammed her, I told her it’s a scam, but she believes it real
I guess I am the big winner. My scam email said I won one million dollars. I immediately trashed it. Easy come, easy go!
I’m talking to someone purported to be Mark Zuckerberg right now. I know it’s a scam, but I’m having some fun with it. First off, they are using bad grammar. Mark Zuckerberg went to college and I’m sure he knows how to use grammar. Second, I asked for his driver’s license. I got a pic of it. Then I asked him if he was in California, why does he have a Washington DC number? If it was the real Mark Zuckerberg, I’m pretty sure his number would be unlisted. I’ll let you know how this turns out.
I have been contacted via facebook messenger by a Sharon Rice. She says she works for Facebook and has assured me that I won a lottery put on by Facebook. The amount I won is 500 thousand usa dollars. I am sure this is a scam.
A Tammy Kullmam said the same thing to me then someone text me saying here is my come save it for delivery now go get two 100$ iTunes cards and give them the activation code I called him on the schedule. Have not heard back yet
I just got an email saying that I was in a drawing for the lottery they do every year. Stated that I won 165,000 dollars from a 12 person winning pool. I gave the ticket number, serial number, and another number. They want me to fax my info to a fax but didn’t provide a fax number and they also wanted me to contact facebook payment center to set up the transfer. There also was no number to that either.
Somebody named Elizabeth Carranza friended me on facebook and then kept trying to tell me I won some lottery. Their facebook profile has only been around since Nov of 2007, has no photos or any background info. After a long, long discussion with plenty of typos, they tried to prove they were legit with some pictures that I pointed out to them some were fake. They wanted to charge me $600 dollars for shipping. They said they even waved all the taxes and didn’t need to file a W-2 or 1099 for the winning, which is highly illegal. They even texted me and the number came up as from Milwaukee, WI and I told them that to which they claimed facebook has a branch office there. They do not. One of them even sent me a picture via phone of a fake Facebook ID for a Mr. Gillermo Hernandez. I kept trying to get them to pay the shipping fee or send it COD. I was also trying to get them to tell me their IP address. I found his exact ID card picture that he sent on this website: https://www.onlinethreatalerts.com/article/2017/2/28/facebook-lottery-scammers-using-fake-identifications-ids/. They have continued to persist and claiming fear is keeping me from going through even though I keep telling them I have no money. They aren’t taking “No” for an answer.
My name is Ms Kanell Lynch was just scammed by a scammer saying I won $650.000 amongst 12 others and the fee is $324 which is crazy saying it’s legit when it’s not and they are still bothering me for a fee.
