I had been receiving email in my inbox from FreeLotto.com saying that I had won a 1 million prize, 10 000 and 300 prize respectively. I had played the lotto after completing a survey which in return give me the chance to play the free lotto. I played them just for fun. Then a few days later, I received an email stating I'm the winner. I couldn't believe them, and had ignored them. This email had been flooding my inbox daily. Once, out of curiosity, I click on the link and filled up whatever required and upon completing, it required me to subscibe to their monthly lotto which cost USD10. Hmm, if it's free lotto, I dont understand why must I subscribe to their program. That is their rule for me to claim the Prize. So kind of them. One of the email also state the last day for me to response, in which I don't. But after the last day, I still received the same email extending the date..hahhh ... how not to be sceptical. Have anyone receive the same thing and confirm if this is really not a JOKE!? If anyone can confirm and proof thatthis is real, I share 5% of whatever I had won..LOL. www.freelotto.com (how true is this website)

These are all the ruse they use to get people to part with their money. Don't ever believe there is such thing as free lotto. There are always opportunity cost involved. I guess once you'll make the payment, you will instantaneously not hear from them or rather they would ask you to pay for some other things in order to get the $$. Imagine if they can fool a lot of people into taking up this offer...hmmmmmm... I wonder how much they will earn.. I have received e-mails almost of the same nature and I just simply delete it off. Reality check... There's no such thing as free money.... Take care and Good Luck on the search for the ultimate wealth creation..hahahha...Jangan marah ya...bergurau je!! :D

But not this Free Lotto though, its scarry Remember This : Bukan senang nak senang.

I am one who receive such mails in different style for a $1,000,000. I think compared to all these Internet fairy tales myLot is the best. Atleast you can sincerely exchange your views without a fake ID.

Agree with you.. even the payment is not that much, but I enjoy the discussion and changing of views here at myLOT. There are a lot of thing we can learn from other people discussion and also clear our own doubt with question that had been lingering in our mind. The plus point, you can ask and answer anything without feeling embarassed or scared that you got knock out down with your sincere answer from your heart. Is it so?. Thats make myLOT different though. Good luck and God bless.

The exact same thing happened to me too a while back. They said I had won some astronomical sum of money, and wanted me to subscribe for $10 and I thought the same as you - I thought this was supposed to be free! I even wrote to them telling them this and threatened to report them to the SEC, but I never received a reply. However, I didn't get anymore emails either! It must be a scam, leave it alone.

i signed up here months ago, and since then they've been sending me ridiculous emails that i won this or that. they say it's urgent, important, etc. etc., and they keep on sending me these emails still even up to this time! but for you to claim your so-called winnings, you must subscribe to freelotto, and that requires some kind of payment. i doubt programs that require any kind of payment in return.

You signed up and pay the 10 bucks? So have you win anything? Or did you signed up after receiving their emails that say you had WON? If you do, I can't blame you. It very tempting and their tactic is very persuasive. If you find them nuisance, terminate your membership and avoid those monthly 10 buck payment to them. Save the money for something better.

I definitely think this is a joke.. don't waste your money there unless you want to just give it a try just to appease your curiosity....I've received plenty of those too.. and I must say it is tempting.. so if anyone did win something from this site... I TOO would love to hear from them :)

Thanks, I wont just waste money out of curiosity. Enough of losing US$30 on that scammed investment. It really a lessoned to learn. There are so many other programs that are worth paying in order to generate more income. Once bitten twice shy.
