Freelotto Winner....A hoax or not?
May 4, 2007 12:59am CST
I was just wondering I always receive email that I have won something in the freelotto draw where they pick your email address as a winner. There are some big cash offers where sometimes they say I have to verify because I won millions of dollars..It sounds juicy really but I never responded or confirmed..Have you ever received any of these emails saying you won something in the freelotto draw? Please share it just made me think of it due to the hard life...

These emails telling you that you have won several millions are a hoax. Some have a form asking for information details about the winner that I would not give them. They ask for information that has nothing to do with a lottery. I don`t give them this information. I don`t know what they do with this data. Sell it? Anyhow, nobody ever got money I was told.

every now and then i am receiving these kinds of e-mails. i consider them as scams and never trust the ones sending these to people like us. how can we win in a lottery when we have not bought any tickets from them? no one for sure would give you big money when they have not asked you for anything in exchange. disregard these scam e-mails and never reply to them.

I also have it so many times, even I ignored them they still keep on sending emails to me. But whenever I try to claim the said money I will end up to registration page where they will asking for credit card number which I think is no appropriate so I don't reply since then. And just now upon searching the net, I found someone who had the same experience and wanted this free lotto site should be banned in the internet. The irony is that one reply on that article said that Free Lotto company has nothing to do with the people who keeps on contacting her before. So its possible that Free Lotto is for real but there are some people who try to use it to lure money from their victims. Here's the link of her story: http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/ripoff148754.htm

Sorry for the late response. Anyways, Thanks for your response. That story was a total rip off..Poor lady. They should really be banned. I don't think they are real. I did receive a check from them for a few cents which I can't even withdraw from our local bank here in our country and who would withdraw a few cents.They are just trying to get to me by sending me that. I still don't believe them. If I won something they should give it without asking for any credit information.
