I get these all the time in my email and they are just scams to get your bank account or credit card information. There is also a new scam, for me at least, and this is a letter and check I received the other day. There was a real check for $2,950.00 payable to me and telling me that I had won $55,000 in some world wide lottery that I had never heard of or entered. The letter stated that the check was to cover a fee to some gaming commission and that I was to deposit it immediately. I was certain it was a scam but couldn't figure out how they could rip me off by giving me a check, so I went to the bank and talked to the manager. She had seen a lot of them and said that the way they usually run the scam is to get a hold of checks from a business and then mail them to people with instructions to deposit them immediately. The bank would usually remove the hold after about a week at which time the scammer would contact the "winner" and instruct them to withdraw the funds for cash and to to Western Union and have the cash sent to a foreign address to pay the gaming commission fee. A couple weeks or more later the business receives its statement and sees all the fraudulent checks that went out and reports it to their bank which then puts a stop payment on it. The lottery "winner" then finds that there is no way to get their money back from the "gaming commission" but that they now have to replace the $2,950 that they withdrew from their account plus pay the fees for depositing a bad check. There is no free lunch and if something seems to good to be true, it probably is. Delete the email.

Well if you have to give them a credit card number or a checking account number to win a prize you can pretty much bet that it is a scam.You do not have to pay people to win a prizee.

well i think it is a scam. I am also receiving emails from National Loterry from UK they said i win but i did not respond because i experienced it before also and they asked me to send money before i can get the money i win but i never do it. I told them that if i win really why not they just lessen the money needed to pay for fee in sending the money. So it means its a scam.

I also have won a freelotto and they are saying that we have to give them our credit card number to verify the PIN no of their FAST service.. I think it is nonsense.. If we have won, they can reduce the charge of their FAST service from the money we won and send the remaining money to us.. I discarded the email after some days.. Still they are sending emails saying that you have won some million dollars and to complete the FAST registration to get the money...

Free lotto is a scam. Everyone who ever gave them email wins. LOL. Never give them your details. Unless you like to be spammed.
