LOTERIA NACIONAL, lottery scam

Lottery scams are bad, but the scam mails for them could be better. (And then they would be even worse…) Who would ever believe this? I’ve never even bought a Spanish lottery ticket. Yet, something calling itself Loteria Nacional feels it has to inform me that my winnings is depostided but that they don’t really know where to send the mony, or as they put it ”your fund is now deposited to your name”.

It’s just another of those scams where the scammer wants me to participate in something shady, and thereby be too guilty to claim charges against them when I find out that I have been ripped off.

    Hi! it loooks like I am the first to answer this, but I have just received a letter dated the 20-02-07, with the same spill and details. I contacted the telephone number on the letter and someone responded. This allows me to pass the information to the police, although I don’t think they will do anything about it. What is your experience and advice? I knew straight away it was a scam, because we get regular emails telling us that we have own lottery prizes all the time, but surely this guys should not get away with it, as more vulnerable people might actually fall for it, especially if they have been to Spain on holidays, and bought a lottery ticket there.
    I live in Northern Ireland.

    It’s really sad, but throughout the years, I haven’t heard of a single case where any police force outside of Nigeria has done anything about this kind of iscams. In the Nigerian case a 419er was sentenced to serve 376 years in jail:

    I tried alerting the police about one of the lottery scams that poses as a Swedish lottery (the Nordic SMS Lottery). It’s quite a story, and I will post about it shortly.

    In brief, the first problem is for the police to find out if they can even act on a crime committed in Nigeria, with victims in North Africa, even though there is a (forwarded) contact address in Sweden and a Swedish (unlisted and prepaid) phone number.

    I had trouble getting past the police officer asking me where the crime was committed, when I answered ”on the internet.”

    However. This shouldn’t stop you from handing over your mail to the local police. If enough of us do it they will have to find out means to deal with this kind of crime. Unsolved cases doesn’t look good in their statistics.

    Emma,

    Just don’t send them any money, whatever they say.
    If you live somewhere, where banks are reasonably secure, they won’t be able to get access to your accounts just by having a copy of your passport and your accounts, but if you feel insecure about it, ask your local bank office.

    Otherwhise. Just ignore them (or send me the e-mails where they start begging you to proceed.

    Hahaha… I just got the same e-mail on my desk. I’m from Barcelona so I kindly asked to pick up the prize personally… lol… LOL

    Emma… over all… DO NOT ADVANCE ANY PAYMENT! If you already informed about personal details i.e. bank accounts, call to your office, they know how and what to do.

    San Pez Ancatara street is unknown to me and no meaning at all… ”Saint Fish” hahaha and ”Ancatara” is… ewwww… whatever…

    Hey folks,
    got the same email last Sunday.

    I would have won 315,810.00 Euros at
    the Nacional International Promotions
    Lottery.

    My agent or better robber would be:

    MR Raymond Lopez
    Foreign Service Manager
    Actualidad Financial S.A.
    Plaza de Colon
    E-28080 Madrid Spain
    (From the Desk of the Managing Director
    International Promotion/Prize Award Dept)
    Tel: +34 656 475 898
    Fax: +34 940 464 727

    Very , very professional I have to say.

    To be honest, a good feeling for a while.

    But a lottery never contacts a winner and every legal lottery
    is on a list, which you can view on the internet.

    No worries Emma !
    As a real emotional women you certainly fell for this.
    and fortunately a real logical Swedish man
    has given you already the advice
    to call your bank an tell them what happened to you.

    Try to learn from us men if it comes to business Emma:
    Control is better as trust in a foreigner !

    By the way: Real men never betray a women ;-)

    Got an exact thing daed 13th July 2007 but its through the post and not email. They have improved. Even use good quality paper for the scam. The things that stopped my spouse and myself is the attached form that looks like its printed freshfrom a low quality printer, the agent’s company name and the advise to keep it top secret. Which lottery draw will keep the winners secret?

    Furthermore, the letter’s main page has pictures of the winners but then we were not asked to strike a pose to get our picture taken. All they wanted was our account number and our date of birth. Also now the so-called application form has a next of kin column to fill out. I really wonder what they are thinking. Perhaps they thought the winner will die of a heart attack knowing that he or she had won a lottery that they had never bought.

    Anyway we played along and gave him; the so-called agent all types of bull, for example D.O.B is 29th February 1978 etc. They got the message after a few calls. Wasn’t very happy with us though. Well, two can play at the same game. :D

  • angelita

    Hi, I have also received a very similar letter today. The name of Dr. Rafael Manuelo is the same but the signature is by Donald Fernandez, the Vicepresident of the Lottery Award Board!!!! Also the address is different, not in Barcelona anymore but in Madrid. There are 2 of them. One is; Romano No. 19, planta 5. 28011 in Madrid and the other, with the Alcance Financiero S.L. letter, is; 21 Planta Andalucia 2a, 18905, also in Madrid. I did not get an e-mail, but a letter instead with my correct address on the envelope. Nevertheless, I decided to check it out on internet as it was too good to be true. Thanks to the sender of the original letter in 2004 !!!! if I hadn’t seen it, I would probably have answer the scam. Ciao

    I also just recieved the famous letter from Spain telling me that I won money but it is from Loteria Primitiva. The address is Romano No 19 Planta 5, 28011 Madrid, Spain It has the same information like all of the other people who have written. I also have the second page asking for my bank account and branch number. They also ask for the next of kin. Boy I wonder what they need that for. Hope this helps someone.

    Hi! I just received a letter like this by post today. As I have been in the past months in Spain I tought it was real….for about 5 seconds:))))
    The first thing i did was search the net and found you. Iwas sure it is a scam, but this website really confirmed it. The funny thing is the ones that have sent it also asked in the so called ”Payment processing form ” for the banck account number and the swift code:))) like I would be that stupid to really send it to them.
    Though something does seem odd to me:they knew my exact adress(moved a year ago to a new flat) and my new name(i just got married) .
    Anyways…thank you guys for being here!

    Hey all,

    U never know Ur luck do you…So like everyone else here, I dediced to check it out online first and found this site. In the email to me it’s the same as above, no bank details required, so I presume they ask for that in later correspondence? Any hoo, cheating, scamming, scumbags is what I have to say about them, even worse tho was the one I received last week from a Nigerian who lost her husband, will in probate and wants to forward the money to me to help fund a christian childrens home – sick.

    Cheers for the info and lets hope some fraud department can sort these diminuitive inadequates out.

    Just got back from a holiday to Spain – I was pleased to have won a lottery which I had never entered !!!
    Thought it was a scam, so I checked on line and lo and behold, here I am.

    During my time in Spain, nowhere did I leave my e-mail address, except in Madrid at the Tourist Information Office at Plaza Mayor, when I used their internet access to book a hotel for the night.

    The e-mail is very similar to the one posted by Angel above over a month ago – even the same claim agent name – just the address is different, and the e-mail address is no longer .es but now is .de

    We hope with part of your winning, you will take part in our next
    year Thirty Million Euros lnternational lottery.

    I recieved this letter today,they basically ask for personal details, and at the most one’s bank account number, what big benefit do they get from it? My father has expired, the lottery has come in his name, and i dunt know whether he filled any in his life…checked this website, found out it was a scam after all, but what do they get from individual personal details of random people across the globe…this cant even serve a marketing purpose! Im confused.

    I FOUND THIS ON THE http://WWW.LOTERIANACIONAL.COM WEBSITE:

    Warning over fraud

    Loteríanacional.com wants to alert the public about certain criminal groups, using the good name of the National Lottery, have swindled several people from around the world.

    To commit fraud, delincuentes- of various nationalities begin contacting potential victim through an electronic communication which contained logos identical to those used by banks and agencies, and where he was reported to have won a substantial prize awarded by the official Spanish lottery.

    It even uses the names of prestigious institutions such as Gordo, or the Primitive. Then, ask the victim to establish telephone contact with an ”agent” who will be responsible for processing the payment of the prize. The ”agent” requires the payment of a certain amount of money by way of bank charges, insurance, etc.. However, those offenders urged his victim to deposit the money order in one of the many who have bank accounts around the world presenting false identities. Once deposited the required amount, the ”agent” disappears, leaving his victim not only with empty pockets, but also with broken dreams.

    This kind of organization also misrepresents printed names and signatures applying the system of fraud from other countries (mainly Germany, Belgium, Holland, UK, South Africa and Switzerland) for defrauding Spanish or Latin American, although there have been similar scams in areas of Southeast Asia and the Pacific and the Americas.

    We therefore recommend to the public to bear in mind that National Lottery is always free of taxes and / or charges. Be wary, therefore, of any agency that prompted some sort of advance payment in taxes with the promise of future delivery of a prize. It’s also important to know that in order to obtain any award from the Spanish lottery, it is imperative to have previously purchased a ticket lottery or betting. When you offer ”rewards” that relate to the apparent Spanish lottery, and not pay any amount required to report to local authorities.

    Stop misleading people ok! Why don’t you also state that there are genuine lotteries.I just won the same LOTERIA NACIONAL that you state is a scam,and I almost lost the money because of the misleading information you place on your website.There can be no fake if there is no real.

    Always report on the positive and the negative,so that people can know exactly where they stand.

    PS:I am sure you would not publish this because it is different from everyone talking about scams.Any way just sent it to see how unbiased you are.

    It has happened before, and each and every time a ”winner” has come forward to comment on my blog, it has been from an IP address belonging to Nigeria or some other west african country. Mauritius is a bit off, but still.

    I have never stated that Loteria Nacional itself is a scam, but anyone stating that you can win money from it without first purchasing a lottery ticket is a fraudster.

  • Mary Y

    Thanks for useful info. I have just ‘WON’ £700,000 on the Loteria Nacional S.A. Supposedly this was the winning lottery ticket in the 2nd category. Letter was on good quality paper, mailed in Malaga, 03/01/08 with sticky address label and proper franked stamp. Headed Christmas Bonanza Golden Chance!! with colour photo top right hand corner.
    Interestingly the letter was accompanied by a photocopy of the original winning ticket with the date of the draw 22nd Dec 2007; and a website address for further details http://www.cestas-de-navidad.net/sorteo-loteria-navidad . On checking the website this was indeed the winning ticket of
    1 million euros BUT IN 2006! Clever stuff indeed as I was begining to feel it was the real thing!
    Thanks for the site! Reassuring to know I’m not the only one!

    Hello! I received a similar letter from an international lotto commission located at Plaza Romano No 19 Planta 5 28011 Madrid on January 7th. The text was even translated into poor German. Thanks to this very helpful information on this website which confirmed my doubts. I was also supposed to provide detailed information about my bank account etc. and they wanted me to pay a 5% commission to a company called ”Globale Sicherheit Firma SA”.

    I´m from Germany and I received a letter similar to the first one. This time it is supposed to be a Exite Seguros S.A. from Madrid involved. There is not such a company. On the head of the claimform there is a real existing company listed in small print (Catalana Occidente Group) this is a real insurance company with headoffice in Barcelona. The phone numbers are real, but the web site (www.exiteseguros.com)is not exsisting. A e-mail what I send to the given adress (email-exiteseguros@madrid.com) has not been returned as failed, so I presume someone got my mail. I ask them to send me a functional web adress. Our Police told me to destroy that letter because they can´t do anything. There must be a way to get this idiots,maybe someone knows how!

    Hello,

    My husband received a similar letter today. So far these spams have been only thru emails.. now by snail mails also!
    Well, as far as I am aware, they can benefit in 2 ways:
    One, as in one of the above messages, they get some money upfront from us and then disappear.
    The other is Identity theft, which is quite serious. Read about it in http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/microsites/idtheft/consumers/about-identity-theft.html

    Hi ………….. I am so disappointed got the same leter but from Madrid and I only won £715,810.00!!! My first reaction was my Mum had bought me a ticket whilst on holiday in Spain (she goes quite regularly, and I woould have given her a share)

    Any way left it in the hands of my mum for her to check it out and she found this website instantly.

    So after reading all of the remarks left by everyone I decided to file it………. in the nearest bin!!!!!!!!!

    So many thanks everyone I will not be failling for that scam. Can’t believe that nothing can be done about people like that who pray on unsuspecting people.

    Hey,
    I think I can easily say I’m luckier that all of you! This is the second consecutive year I receive the same letter from Madrid and guess what? It always arrives around my birthday!! Reason why I almost fell for it last year (I thought…’it must be destiny or some kind of paranormal power in action!’) ahahahah. Plus half of my family lives in Spain! This year I decided to check online to make sure that I wasn’t the ‘chosen one’ (you don’t want to be too lucky in this life!) and found this great website.
    So thanks to you all and ….
    I sincerely wish you all the best of luck in everything you do!;)

    My mother received a letter today from LOTERIA NACIONAL. Just from the context and appearance (simialr to previous El Gordo letters) I figured it was a scam and your site and others has confirmed it. I always wondered how you won a lottery without buying a ticket. She could use the money as she’s recently widowed and wasn’t sure if my father had bought a ticket previously – but a little research has shown it just more fraud. These people should be, as Dickens so graphically put it, ”boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart”.

    I got a regular post correctly stamped envelope with the same kind of notification from Spain to Scotland, UK. I wonder how much they gain from naive people that they continue such procedure? There is no police action worldwide to stop this crime since at least 2004 – 4 years!!!

    Zut alors! And there I was thinking we could leap frog onto the UK housing market with the €615,810 I’d apparently won on the ”Euromilliones Lottery Promotion Program” …

    On first read of the letter, which had a number of Spanish stamps and franking marks, I was excitedly racking my brain re what competitions I may have entered recently as I do love entering competitions (a secret vice!)…

    I then read ”remember 10% of your winnings belongs to ALCANCE FINANCIERO S.L. because they are the security company that bought your ticket and played the lottery on your name” and that’s when I realised this was yet another of those beep beep scams about which our anti-money laundering officer at work is forever warning us. A google search confirmed this :(

    Same old rubbish by letter. This time ”signed” by Carlos Santos. Post-mark Benalmadena 13.02.08. Agree the Loteria Nacional should investigate.

    My mother just received one of these letters in the post. She has never been to spain and asked me to have a look at it as she thought it might be a scam.

    I’m glad she asked me and didn’t act on it, to someone her age it’s an awful lot of money that would have made life easier, someone her age without family may have fallen for it, someone should lock these people up and throw away the keys!!!

    Hi, I’m from American Samoa and like everyone else here (almost everyone)I almost fell for this scam. I was told that I won E1,000,000 (euro)and that I was to contact my claims agent by the name of Don Antonio Branco, Executive Director, Foreign Operation Dept. of EXITE SEGUROS S.A. @ TEL: 01134638158897, FAX: 01134911814140, email: exiteseguros@madrid.com.
    The Presidents name is a Don Jose Pablo, Banco La Caixa @ Tel. 01134692800476, Vice President is Raul J. Gonzales @ 01134676182459. If you notice Raul does not have a ”Don” before his name.

    Talk about your first class Nigerian ”scam” operation, these guys have come a long way from email notices of government funds for assistance in shipping it out of the country to international lottery. Remember the dead give away is their African voice or tone. They are no where close to sounding like someone from Spain. Another giveaway is when they mention that your check will be delivered in a diplomatic pouch. Huh!? No country on this planet has such a policy for delivery of lottery items, etc.
    I am wondering why the INTERPOL has not investigated this matter with the countries these con-artists operate in? It is obvious this is a worldwide epidemic that will not cease anytime soon. These ”leeches”are very well informed and innovative (I’ll give them that). The FBI should also investigate this matter. The local police departments do not have the resources, manpower or know-how to combat this worldly disease. I know for sure that my local Public Safety department is incapable and incompetent (sorry…the truth must come out). Next time you receive a notice similar to what you have, just turn it over to the FBI or fax it to INTERPOL. Speak with your Attorney Generals office to publicize your letter in the media for public awareness. (end)

    Hi. Just to let you know these scummy guys are still going strong. It’s now March 12 08 and I received a letter in my name to an address I have been living at for only 3 months. No idea how they got my details as I am so careful when it comes to data security. I even lie in shops when they ask for your phone number or postcode (whys is that) when they process your payment, regardless if its a cash or credit card payment. Anyway I loved the comment from Graeme #76 about reusing the letter to pick up your dogs poo in the garden….as a firm beliver in recycling I couldn’t think of a better use.

    How about we organise for all of us to send them 25 emails each everyday telling them to stop what they are doing. They would have to keep changing email addresses or at least it would be very annoying for them!

    I have just received the same letter, telling me I’ve won £715,810.00! At first I laughed, but then I thought it looked more professional than most mailshot scams, so worth looking at more closely.

    My first worry was that they were asking for my bank details, secondly that they were planning on keeping 10%, thirdly that I had never bought a ticket, fourthly the poor english on the letter, fifthly that I had to claim by the same date as my birthday (a conincidence?)…need I go on?

    I dont understand why, if they had bought 25000 tickets and one was a winner, why would they not just keep it for themselves. Why send it to me, someone who had never registered with them and was not known to them…very strange.

    So I decided to check it out and found this website, which confirmed my suspicions. Thank you all who have posted.

    Just to note, the address on the letter was Avd. Juan Real 25 CP 28002 Madrid Spain.

    So back to work next week for me, no early retirement…just yet.

    I am a millionaire brilliant!!!!!!……..if its too good to be true, it usual is.

    These idiots may as well of stamped ‘SCAM’ on the letter. For one I have not been to Spain for a few years and they also asked for me to keep it quite and not tell anyone. Who are these guys kidding.

    What saddens me is that these people are probably targeting elderly people who are non the wiser.

    I wish there was something we could do to stop these people, but I am pretty sure they are ilusive.

    Did I win? I knew it was a scam. So I decided to check it out. Search: Loteria Nacional Madrid Espana. It lead me to this web-site which confirmed my initial instinct. SCAM! Why do the scammers keep getting away while the economy keeps tanking also. It doesn’t seem right. I hope this web-site helps those who question on returning the bank form that is attached to the letter that comes in the mail. DON’T fill it out! DON’T send it back!

    Received similar letter dated 07-04-2008,won 815,810,00 euro’s.

    Mr Pedros Casas you will not get anything from me but thanks for sending this letter and spending your time and money on me:) Please carry on, i will just recycle them.

    They could at least sent me the original mail and not a print out and also I have my name on it instead of Beneficiary.

    From the moment I have open the mail I knew that that stuff was fishy.
    I am glad this website existe, I will never I have given my bank details ( ID thieft is so in fashion) but I am sure it will prevent a lot of people to fell in it.
    I will try to send them a email, if it work I will spam them a bit.
    On more thing don’t count on the police to do something, it is far too much work for them. Leave them carry on eating their big fat doughnuts.
    It was fun to read all your comments.
    By the way I from London

    They are still at it! I received a letter last week (undated)telling me it was my last chance to collect the E935,470.00 I had won on the Loteria Nacional. The address given was Calle Alora in Madrid, my agent is Dr Brown Louis and it was signed by Jose Miguel Fernandez. Of course I knew it must be a scam as I have never played this lottery but I hoped it might be true! I’m pleased I did a search and found this site. You are full filling a great public service and I thank you.

    I recieved today in the snail mail from Dr Antonio Gomez a letter telling me that due to a mix up of some numbers and names in the draw held on 28th May 07, the results were released on 20th Feb 08 (?) and (lucky me!!) my name was attached to ticket number 113-3333-556 with serial number 2258-00 which drew the lucky numbers of 00-26-77-66-00-55 which consequently won the lottery in the 3rd category.

    So I have been approved for a lump sum payment of Euro 920,810.00.

    Don’t worry though…I know this is true because ”Names entered in the program were presented by ANDALUCIA VISTA S.A. in conjunction with a group of philanthropists, humanitarian organisations, and also with the help of chambers of commerce of high commision world wide.” and it is ”COMPREHENSIVELY INSURED IN MY NAME.”

    Now i just have to contact my claims agent MR LUCAS RICARDO (foreign operations manager of LIBERTY SEGURO S.A. on telephone number 0034-655-343-071). And thank God for that because with the cost of petrol the way its going I am going to need every Euro of it so I can fill up this weekend.

    These people can’t be very bright really can they?

    We’ve just recieved a letter for my dad from Spain telling him that he’d entered a lottery draw in April 2008 and won a lump sum pay out.

    This is all fair and well until you realise that my dad died FOUR years ago.

    These people are a disgrace.

    Hi

    Just to let you know that this is still happening – i got my letter dated 23-05-2008 today and it let me know that i had won 815,810.00 euros!!! Thankfully i am cynical enough to google it – don’t get me wrong, i had it all spent in my head in the time it took for me to log on :) Hope someone comes up with a way to get these scammers!!! I especially think the ”we ask you to keep this award top secret” part, was really sneaky!!!

    Thanks

    My mum received a Loteria Nacional letter today, dated 24 May 2008, so they’re still at it! The address was ‘Calle Alora No. 35 Piso 2 F, 28004 Madrdid, Spain Tel: +34 634 251 072″ The signatory is Carlos Gomez, Managaing Director, Sadly, she fell for it. She phoned the number and explained that she doesn’t have a bank account (for them to pay the winnings into) so they suggested that they courier the money to her, but she would have to pay the courier charge of €950 (later downgraded to €715). Altenratively, she could pick it up in person but would have to pay a 5% ‘charity commission’ fee. A horrid scam that gets people’s hopes up before fleecing them. Awful. I intend to to report this to the police.

    Dearest One,

    Nice to meet you, I am Mrs. Angela Elliot from Sierra-Leone.The wife of late pastor Willam Elliot The funder of Victory living church I deemed it necessary to disclose this important issue to you. I lost my husband during the rebel attacked in 2003 before his death, he deposited a Trunk box in a security firm here in Abidjan contains US$8.5 Millions Dollars and the security company where the consignment is been deposited too never knew the real content of the trunk box my late husband deposited the trunk box as containing family valuables for security reasons which I will give you more details as soon as I receive your positive response.

    This money was for the purchase of plots of land and development of church building and enqupiment, unfortunately he did not meet his target before his untimely death.

    Why I contacted you, is due to our present situation here in Abidjan, I stay under a refugee camp with my only son and were looking for a honest person that will help me and my son to uplift the consignment to overseas for an investment purpose. I was advised to look for a foreign account where the money can be transferre before I can have access to it.

    Since security here cannot be guaranteed besides, I致e lost my husband, I hereby ask you to do me a favour by standing as my late husband痴 foreign business partner and the beneficiary of the money to enable the security company release the consignment.

    I have plans to invest this money in continuation with the investment vision of my late husband, but not in this place again rather in your country. I have the vision of going into real estate and industrial production, please if you are willing to assist me and my only son Kenneth, indicate your interest in replying soonest.

    If you agree on this, I値l give you 10% of the total share when the transaction is ben concluded while 5% will be given to you if you made any expense on the cause of the transaction. Waiting to hearing from you, please once I hear from you I’ll send you the contact of the security company for you to contact them for the claiming of the consignment. Please you are required to respond here for more details : mrs_william_elliot@yahoo.co.jp

    Thanks for your anticipated co-operation,
    Yours,
    Mrs. Angela Elliot.

    Luckily managed to stop my mother today from falling from this scam. She had recieved a postal letter and had made contact with a Dr LOUIS LOPEZ, She was getting excited as she had got told that they were going to send her a cheque via courier to arrive in next 14 hrs :)
    However they required an upfront payment of £920 as insurance for the cheque they were going to send.
    Luckily i popped in when she was getting ready to write a cheque to send all in good faith
    Dr Lopez then rang again to discuss robbing my mother, erm i mean her good fortune in her very big win, i answered and had a few questions for him to answer. This made him very defensive as he started saying he was from a very big company and his professional reputation was paramount la de dah de dah etc. when i asked him to just deduct it from the overall amount, he came back with ”the funds have been allocated to your mother and deposited in the bank espania and cannot be broken down. A cheque has been drafted and will be sent upon them receiving her money.”

    When i said they could wire us the money to an account over here, much more simple and quicker, and upon receipt of this money in our account we will send them the £920 plus the agents 5% and an additional 10% as a goodwill gesture, he got quite grumpy :) he ranted on for a while about how the authorities over there in spain will not let them break the winnings and that wire transfering this much money could be questionable and raise suspision. I responded with ”well having to transfere £920 to such a big and professional comapny to insure the courier cheque seemed questionable to myself and very suspicious.” When i stated that at least Dick Turpin wore a mask he muttered something down the phone and the line went dead!!

    Oh well, i really enjoyed our chat at their expense :)

    It’s still doing the rounds!

    we received a copy through the mail a few days ago. Return address is Madrid but it was posted in Barcelona (with an actual stamp, so at least the Spanish Post Office is getting some benefit from these guys)

    It is dated 7th June and say that we were entered into the draw for 19th June, but due to a mix-up the results were released on 17th May. Our winnings are 935,470.00 euros.
    Again we are asked to keep it a secret –to prevent ”undue taking advantage of this programme by participants”

    got the letter today, 14th of june.
    of course it was clear that it is a scam,
    what worries me is where did they get the address?
    does it have to do anything with spain at all? I actually was there on holiday some months ago and wonder if they raided the hotel customer list…. as the stamp on the letter is actually spanish, posted on the 9 june in malaga!

    Hi Guys,

    I got the same letter today via post from Spain, rang the number spoke to my agent, from the moment he picked up the phone, I knew it was a scam, He has a African accent with a spanish name and didn’t speak a word of spanish.

    I live in UK, but I am from Africa, and speak Spanish

    I didn’t give any bank details and decided to check on the net and just found you people with all these stories.

    Thanks for letting others know about them, and I really think something have to be done, otherwise one day, some one will fall for it.

    Hi Im sarah and I come from Malta I received a letter in my post dated 04/08/08 and funnily enough it states the same as the above mentioned from LOTERIA NACIONAL stating that i won 935,470.00 euros it was a bit odd to me as I never entered any lotteries, however it stated that i was selected through a computer ballot system drawn from 25.000 names from Europe and america as part of our intrnational promotions progaram that they conduct twice a year .

    I called up wasted 10 euros in credit :) where i was told to transfer 2000 euros by Money Gram in order for them to pay the bank charges !!!!

    I told this person which accordingly to the letter he is called Dr. Jose Garcia that this is sounding like a scam and he was than becoming more persistant he said that he id their to protect me and the best thing for me to do is to keep this confidential as if someone else tries to claim the winnings than the price will drop . ( THAT IS REALLY NOT A GULLABLE EXCUSE ).

    I than told Mr Garcia that I would feel more safe if I had to do a bank transfer and he tod me that he will call me on Monday and provide me with the bank details. What I am going to tell him than is in order to go to spain and collect the money myself :)

    So I keep u guys updated on the result of the call

    Hi Im sarah and I come from Malta I received a letter in my post dated 04/08/08 and funnily enough it states the same as the above mentioned from LOTERIA NACIONAL stating that i won 935,470.00 euros it was a bit odd to me as I never entered any lotteries, however it stated that i was selected through a computer ballot system drawn from 25.000 names from Europe and america as part of our intrnational promotions progaram that they conduct twice a year .

    I called up wasted 10 euros in credit :) where i was told to transfer 2000 euros by Money Gram in order for them to pay the bank charges !!!!

    My in laws got this letter. They are in thier 80′s but had the sense to pass the letter on to us as I am spanish. I took two minutes to google the page and strangely enough it’s a fake!!
    Thank goodness for their hesitation and your website.
    The name has changed to Dr. Louis Lopez from Vitalico Seguros S.A now with an address in Madrid but all the rest is almost identicle to previous letters.

    I just received a letter in the post informing me I have won a million euros, and asking me to visit their web site to confirm the amount (which I did), phone Mr Simon Morta (which I haven’t), and fax my details and those of my next of kin (which I haven’t).

    Now whilst it would be nice to think I had really won a million euros, ‘you’ve got to be in it to win it’, as they say, and I didn’t buy a lottery ticket.

    Thanks for the information on this web site, it’s good to get confirmation of one’s suspicions.

    I got one last week! Rang the number and even filled out the form. Was all quite exciting for 1 minute!
    But before dashing to the fax machine I googled it and found another site exposing it as a scam. So needless to say I didn’t fax over the form.
    Mine didn’t require bank details, you can just tick a box for a cheque… why didn’t they just send me the cheque to my address like the letter if this was genuine?? Can’t imagine what they’d want with next of kin details either.
    I will be putting the letter and the form I filled out straight into the shredder!

    So thanks for taking the wind completely out of my sails.Going to go and mope around the house now and kick the cat.
    Might still give them a ring anyway just for the ensuing arguement.Got to brighten up my day somehow.
    Many thanks for the info.Much appreciated

    I did worse on request of friends. I transferred today £875 and was asked to send by fax to the barrister the receipt. Stupid me, I did, now they have my signature and bankdetails. I am going to warn the bank ASAP. Please don’t be as stupid as I was .

    Just FYI. My bank stated that they always will check with me personally when receiving a request per fax, even if there is my (copied) signature on it. The bank that called me tonight (but the phone was taken by someone else) was also part of the scam, because my bank confirmed me that NO call went out from them to me today.
    Once more, be warned. I get the money back from my friends. Feel sorry for them. Next time they will for sure be more sceptic and search the intenet before believing such a story. FYI. They had bought a lottery ticket in Spain.

    I have just received a letter from said Loteria Nacional. The usual winning 935,470,00euro From Carl santos Vice president. Calle de Bravo Murillo 396. It is great to have a website like this as it saves us from making fools of our selves. I am a 67 year old pensioner and would like that amount of cash! But not silly enough to fall for it. many thanks Roxi

    Glad I am in such distinguished company…I too have won over 9 hundred thousand euros. After the first 30 seconds when I thought the universe was finally smiling upon me I realised it was a scam. I live in Australia and received the quite professional notification by snail mail. The envelope was postmarked Malaga and I was there two years ago hence the few seconds of considering the possibility of it being real.
    The depressing thing about this scam is that they must be making money from it or it would not still be circulating…are there really that many gullible people in the world? It seems so and thanks for the website…it is great to have my suspicions confirmed.

    I have just received a letter at my old address, regarding Loteria Nacional. It is a Tourism Board Promotion for Spain and states I am a third category winner. The letter says that my agent placed my name on a ticket and will receive 10% commission if I claim the amount of 915,810 Euros before October 25th 2008. My contact is Don Jose Pablo. They even went to the extent of explaining that someone entered my name for me.

    I have recently been living in Hong Kong, where i did do alot of travelling and used a private travel agent to book my flights and make visa arrangements, so there is some link here to travel agent and Tourism board. Obviously a scam and I didn’t hesitate once to think otherwise, but this website is a blessing, as it truly confirms any anxieties one might have…

    What I want to know is how they get your address…the address they sent it to I have not lived at for 6 months and only resided there for 1 month!!!!!! All my mailing address has been changed since, and luckily my friend lives there and opened it. Only living there for 1 month and they had that address! Before that I was living in HK…very strange…I think they have people working all of the world who are attached to phone companies, energy companies and just general organisations that have access to home/mailing address and working on some kind of commission…bit scary…I am having my letter sent over to me from Western Australia and lodging a complaint with the police here. Australian Police Services take fraud very seriously and hopefully will follow something up with this. I am disgusted that people do this, and what is even sadder is that we are allowed to be excited as humans when we win things, even ten dollars can be exciting, it is a fun thing in life and these people abuse that and take it all away! And worst, probably pay other people to do their dirty work a dollar a day!

    I will check this blog over the next week, so If anyone would like the full details of my letter, ref no, ticket no, etc., for their own reference, records or towards a larger investigation, please feel free to contact me and ask me to blog in full details…thanks again for this website…they even finding way over in Western Australia in a little town on the coast with 3000 people…very scary!

    Yesterday I received a letter from the Loteria Nacional with the same contents as given in those above.
    I was astonished because I didn’t buy any tickets nor took part in any winnings.
    So I sent them an email to ask them how they picked my email-address. They answered in a long letter telling nothing – they only repeated what to do to get the money.
    In the two mails from ”golfortunetrust” I found mistakes: 1. The spelling of ”Loteria Nacional”/”Lotteria Naccionall” was different; 2. The first sender’s address differed from the second one in the number of the houses (Paseo de Recoletos 20/2 in Madrid). I checked the addresses by Google maps and I found out that the first address belongs to the National Library in Madrid and the second one is the one of the ”Casa de America”! Funny isn’t it?
    So I was more than curious and I phoned my named agent Mr. Martin-Agustin from ”Goliath Fortune Trust” today to get some information if they are really existing.
    (In the internet you can find a homepage of ”Goliath Fortune Trust”.) I asked him how they got my email-address and what they think about giving personal data to foreign persons via internet and (at least) how stupid people are .
    I was told that I was drawn out of a world wide e-mail pool and that I had won the amount of money for sure. The only thing I would have to do is to fill in the application form asking only for private data (name, address, etc., but no bank account/no demand for paying sums on delivery) asap. Then – when they will have checked the data during the next three or four days – they will invite me to Spain to get the money. (In the first email they let me choose between a bank transfer or a certified cheque!) Oh, how lucky I am! ;))
    So I checked the internet once again and I found all your mails! Believe me or not – I am content with myself! I still realize when things smell! Take care!!!

    I received one of those ”loteria nacional” notices too, so funny. I spoke with the agent and asked him just to send me the ”check”, as they had all the details they needed. I played along with the scam, acting like I was really pleased to have won but didn’t understand why the couldn’t just issue the check….the ”agent” eventually just put the phone down on me, lol.

    Can someone give me the phone number for this scam again, as I threw out the paperwork but would like to use the ”agents” number as my phone number when other scammers are asking for this.

    At present I have Dulwich Galleries pressing me for a phone number so they can contact me about some payments they need to make to my account….even when telling them in emails that I am ”pissing myself laughing” at their attempted scam they still come back for more. Love it.

    Just received a redirected Loteria Primititiva Gratis letter addressed to my father-in Law who sadly passed away some two months ago. Odd what. Are they getting addresses from the UK Register of Birth, Marriage and Death? Could be why they are asking for Next of Kin details?

    Any way pleased to see I’m not alone. Keep up the good work of alerting people to the Scam!

    They get your addresses from the very same sources that every other piece of addressed junk mail that lands in your mail box. Most addresses are for sale all over the world, and every time you submit your data on a coupon or such you add it to even more address databases.

    Damn these letters looks real.
    Just recived a letter today also.
    I am the lucky winner of: 615,810,00 Euros! Could it get any better!?
    Now the first thing that came to my mind was, why would anyone, and especially from Spain, buy a lottery ticket for me. Cause as it says:
    A total tickets of 25000 names of international parcititants were bought this year by your agent. (Who apparently is a guy named Don Manuel Garcia).

    But besides that, I almost bought it!
    Cause these scams usually comes by mail and not by letters, plus the letters good quality.

    But come on. No ones ever that lucky..

    But I really got to give my thumbs up for this Website!
    If there ever were doubts, it sure gets killed after reading all these MANY replys!

    So thanks I guess! =)

    I have received one of these letters from Spain every year for the last 3 years, and ignored them until this year, when I reported it to the relevent authority. Oddly enough, my winning ticket number is the same as that quote by Tita above about a week ago.

  • Red5

    Basically more of the same. The signatories are always Dr. or Prof or something like that. The English used is suspect at best (ie. African). Then the email address of the person who will help you get ”your fund(sic)” is usually a hotmail or yahoo address. My experience tells me that ALL loteries, bigger corporations, banks and goverment departments etc. have dedicated email servers, and NEVER uses public domain addresses for official business. I also agree, that it will never happen that a lottery will contact a winner, there is no way they can know the winner’s detail. Winners must claim their winnings by presenting the winning ticket. Would be very difficult if you never even bought a ticket…

    Alfredo, my advice, bank the cheque, wait ten to twelve days – you will see it does not clear (or more likely, your bank will refuse to accept the cheque in the first place). If it does clear – you are 4900 USD up, if not, you lost nothing. If you contact them they will probably ask you to pay them the 3900 upfront (while waiting for the fraudulent cheque to clear), then the cheque does not clear and, guess what – you lost 3900 USD.

    Alfredo. I agree with Red5. You should try to bank the check. But you should wait for up to 4 weeks until you do anything with the mone (i.e. send them any money back).

    The scam here is delicate. You get a false or bouncing check, and most banks (at least in the US) will hand you the money with the right to take them back if the original check bounces. What the scammers hope for is that you will send them most of the money back before you realize that their check bounced.

    In some countries, like Sweden, some banks won’t hand you any money until the check is cleared from the signing bank, and that’s why we don’t see as many of these scams here.

    Hey guys, guess what? Got my letter this morning… same old stuff, i’ve just won 935,470.00 Euros and Carlos Santos, Scam Vice president of Scam City in Espania has invited me to take part in the next scam lottery for 1.3Million Euros. The letter even has a watermark! What is amazing is that the first post on this site was 2004 and it’s still happening 4 years later. My letter came in the snail mail not on email so they have expanded. There are too many of these scams happening and as long as there are gullible dummies then there will be Nigerian ontrapanures and the likes engaged in international criminality from their armchairs. Well done all the above for being intelligent and for posting on this site. And, if you got your letter and thought you were rich, shame on you, you should know better. :)

    I got one today. it is so fake. But just for fun I rang them up. the telephone rang for about 2 minutes then a very lethargic voice answered. I asked him a few questions and the man, believe it or not, gave me very clear indications of how I should claim the price (more than 900.000 euros) and that they are the agents keeping only 10% which after all is not too much, I tought considering that I didnt even buy the ticket. Anyhow I tried to negotiate to 5% rather 10%…unsuccessfully. They are fake and I can see of how people can fall into the trap because as I said in the claim they put telephone numbers and they are prepared to give informations.

    Thanks to all for highlighting this scam. We’d come back from holiday in Majorca at the beginning of September, and as my wife kind of remembered filling some kind of questionnaire at the airport on the way out (I know – bad idea !) so initially thought that this had something to do with that. Quick search on Google, and this pops up. Cancel the Ferrari :). This is postmarked from Almeria, and dated 10/11/2008. Tempted to phone up for a laugh (from work – not on my bill)!

    What a relief that I found you! I received this letter in the post today and thought this might be true…… for all of 0.5 seconds until I was reminded by a friend that I was in an alcoholic coma on the day I supposedly played this lotto…

    I must say that the poor grammar, unforgivable spelling errors e.g. ”MR,FELIX LOPEZ and ”Wining” fund and ”unwarranted taking advantage of this programme” to mention a few, very quickly put things into perspective for me.

    My poor mother however was convinced I had won the money, despite me never having participated much less been to Spain. She does not know about my alcoholic stupor so I had to find other reasons to convince her that this was a scam. Thanks to you I can show her this blog.

    So, to the Phantom Dr Juan Carlos Vice President (whose signature looks nothing like the name more like Antonio) , Mr, Felix Lopez, the foreign services manager of Grupo Eulen Security Company SA ……..why don’t you go and rob a grave or something and leave the rest of us to plan the festive season….with our own money!!!!

    What a relief that I found you! I received this letter in the post today and thought this might be true…… for all of 0.5 seconds until I was reminded by a friend that I was in an alcoholic coma on the day I supposedly played this lotto…

    I must say that the poor grammar, unforgivable spelling errors e.g. ”MR,FELIX LOPEZ and ”Wining” fund and ”unwarranted taking advantage of this programme” to mention a few, very quickly put things into perspective for me.

    My poor mother however was convinced I had won the money, despite me never having participated much less been to Spain. She does not know about my alcoholic stupor so I had to find other reasons to convince her that this was a scam. Thanks to you I can show her this blog.

    Nice, thick paper for letter and an easy to open enevlope – classy enough! So there has to be some money made on this. And for access to your mailing address there has to be a system of some refined kind. Or money to buy addresses from. I just wonder how big this thing is? Isn’t there anybody living in Spain that can conduct some good, old Sherlock Holmes services?

    Hi, got the letter today from Carlos Santosser!, obviously a scam although i did dream for a minute or two and then found this site. Thanks for confirming my first thought (but it’s a shame you dashed dizzy dream). It is a bit un-nerving knowing they have my address details though. I’d love to get them all locked up for this scam or for being racists, Great World Champ Lewis!!!!

    Hi guys… I received the letter on my home address 3-4 days ago, I live at the province of Verona – Italy… The question is : How they get my home address ?
    The other question, I controlled the website http://www.ocaso.es/web/index.html and didn’t understand the relation between insurance company and lottery.

    Anyway I’m sure that NOBODY GIVES MONEY FOR NOTHING…

    Hi Guys I also got a letter today from International lottery Board, Loteria Primitiva Gratis, stamped Malaga, and won a lovely sum of 815,510.00E, YE RIGHT THEN! but I feel so sorry for the older person or people without Computers to look up this sort of scam up, our generation is a bit more clued up and know to check these sites , what about all the people that will really think they have won ?? The figure alone on the paper looks so inviting , but you only have to look at the Photocopy of the win , Even if it had been real do you think the quality of the paper and lay out would look so shabby No!! Don’t even read all these notes and still think perhaps yours is a real win, the best thing about it was their envelopes they were neat ha ha

    Hi All … I live in the Channel Islands and got the letter from Loteria Nacional (I won EUR935,470.00) by post about half an hour ago when I got in from work. Got my christian name and surname spot on along with the correct address. The letter has some very nice logos at the bottom for Loterias y Apuestas del Estado and Ministerio De Hacienda … there is even a bar code with my Ref No. on it!!

    The address supplied with mine is Calle De Bravo Murillo 396, 28020, Madrid, Spain Tel 00 34 615 096 187… but was posted from Helsinki.

    My claim agent is Dr. Luis Lopez, the Foreign Service manager of Vitalico Seguros S.A. Tel No. 00 34 678 158 002 Fax 00 34 911 881 379 and he charges 5% commission, so ha to all those who were going to be charged 10% !!!

    Our police have a financial crimes unit, so I will hand it over to them, though I suspect they are likely to have seen it before.

    i just recieved a letter stating award notification from euromillones loteria internacional from calle guzmam el bueno madrid spain saying i won $ 715,810.00 . it wants me to send picture id and adress they have my adress or i wouldnt have gotten the letter. also wants to know if i want bank transfer or cashiers check. this is what i think if you realy won you would recieve a check to begin with or they would come to your front door to deliver it.also the envolope had my adress only no return adress and a stamp put upside down on it. if it was real it would be a company envolope with no stamp it would have postage paid bye the company…….

    I just received this same letter in the mail last night. It says I won 1 Million Euro for a draw I never entered. I was to call Don Pablo, the foriegn services manager of Santalucia Seguro S.A on 0034 627 734 928 Fax 0034 911 817 388. I clearly knew it was a scam, especially when they asked for my bank details, passport, proof of residence, etc. And I like the little addition that we should not notify anyone about this. Hilarious. I hope too many people don’t fall victim to these scumbags….

    Are there really gullible people out there are fund these operations by responding to it?

    I have been to Spain recently and I had to fill out and immigration document, as I am not an EU citizen – clearly there is someone who handles these documents selling information to this ‘Loteria Nacional’.

    What a f%£$ing liberty!

    Here we go again – Buckinghamshire
    On return from holiday, we ftoo ound that we had supposedly won 935470 euros on the Loteria Nacional, when we didn’t buy a ticket, but were in Spain in May of this year. So someone could well be passing on personal information

    I should not be telling you all this of course as I have been pledged to secrecy to avoid unwarranted abuse of the program or fraudulent acts from criminally minded and unauthorised individuals !

    I dont think we’ll be framing the photo of Carl Santos, President, nor shall we be contacting Dr. Lous Perez, Foreign Service Manager.

    Just hope that no elderly people have been caught by this obvious scam

    Hm… my previous message is not there. Please don’t think I’m spamming your board. I just said that it was so obvious it was a hoax as the Spanish Christmas Lottery doen’t take place in July, as the letter says, the address sounds really odd and no one signs a letter using señor… so I assume they are not Spanish but rather managed to put a few words together to make it sound Spanish to those who obviously don’t speak the language.

    I’ve joined the club now ;-)
    Received a letter today to my home address.

    I won 699 999.99 € from the International Lottery Sweepstake Espana …
    Due to some mistake my Lottery number is not on the official list from Aug 29, but on a new list from Oct 10.
    Very convincing …

    Dr. Santos Carlos is my claims agent and
    Diego Horeman is the Vice President
    I should contact xerox_sa@yahoo.com … this part is really convincing: yahoo account called xerox for a Spanish lottery commission …

    My only question is: Where and how much money do I send?

    Can I join the winners club please. I got my letter today from Carlos Gomez of the Loteria Nacional with instructions to contact Dr Luis Mark – strange it was on a mobile number. And guess what, I have no recollection of buying any lottery ticket for it having not been to Spain for two years. The mix up was from the October Draw results not being released till December 10th so that’s OK then

    Does anyone know anything about the Ministerio De Economia y Hacienda – with all the unclaimed prize money going to them they must be worth an absolute fortune. Perhaps they could send us all some money.

  • Tobias

    I just got my letter today in LUXEMBOURG, of all places. At first I thought a friend of mine had written me and what was my surprise to see that I won 615800€ with the lottery ticket 031-1127-841 serial 3214-07.
    I have to claim it by 19/02/09 or I will forfeit my winnings.
    The Letter comes from:

    Loteria Nacional
    Administracio de Lotories No 1
    Avda Alfonso X 111
    28038 Madrid
    Tel: 0034-662-619769 Fax: 0034-917-903972
    Signed by: Snra. Maria Gracia Iglesia ( Mrs. Mary Grace Church )

    The agent where I am meant to claim my money is:

    Ocaso Seguros S.A.
    Alcala 205
    Bajo Madrid
    28028 Madrid
    Tel: 0034-662-613481 Fax: 0034-911-881310 / 0034-911-881484
    pcaso.seguros@yahoo.es
    Contact: Don Jose Miguel Rodriguez, Foreign Services Manager of Ocaso Seguros S.A.

    The paper which I am supposed to fill out is so bad and crooked that it’s flagrant that it’s a fake. I am considering contacting a lawyer friend of mine in Spain and send him to claim the money / sue them so that they pay.

    Here are a few other facts:

    http://www.ocaso.es/web/en/1_11_comercio.html
    is the official website of the REAL Ocaso Seguros.
    When you search their website and the locator you’ll find quite a few offices in Madrid like for any insurance company but not one with the address given in the scam.

    http://www.loterianacional.com/spanish-lottery-scams.asp
    http://onlae.terra.es/avlegal_ingles.htm
    are both official websites of the Loteria Nacional and they warn on it also of the scam.

    Hope this helps someone avoid paying money and never being able to claim your winnings.

    BTW, the person who got a response to be picked up by someone at the airport. DO NOT ever fall for that. They had a similar scam in France and then held the person prisonner until he/she went to the bank to get money and pay them off.
    If you finally decide to go, do it at your time, go to your hotel, give them a date there and definetly try to be with 1-2 other friends who can fight to get you out of a tight spot or at least contact the police prior to leaving so that they know when and where to contact and find you in need

    I just got my letter today in LUXEMBOURG, of all places. At first I thought a friend of mine had written me and what was my surprise to see that I won 615800€ with the lottery ticket 031-1127-841 serial 3214-07.
    I have to claim it by 19/02/09 or I will forfeit my winnings.
    The Letter comes from:

    Loteria Nacional
    Administracio de Lotories No 1
    Avda Alfonso X 111
    28038 Madrid
    Tel: 0034-662-619769 Fax: 0034-917-903972
    Signed by: Snra. Maria Gracia Iglesia ( Mrs. Mary Grace Church )

    The agent where I am meant to claim my money is:

    Ocaso Seguros S.A.
    Alcala 205
    Bajo Madrid
    28028 Madrid
    Tel: 0034-662-613481 Fax: 0034-911-881310 / 0034-911-881484
    pcaso.seguros@yahoo.es
    Contact: Don Jose Miguel Rodriguez, Foreign Services Manager of Ocaso Seguros S.A.

    The paper which I am supposed to fill out is so bad and crooked that it’s flagrant that it’s a fake. I am considering contacting a lawyer friend of mine in Spain and send him to claim the money / sue them so that they pay.

    Here are a few other facts:

    http://www.ocaso.es/web/en/1_11_comercio.html
    is the official website of the REAL Ocaso Seguros.
    When you search their website and the locator you’ll find quite a few offices in Madrid like for any insurance company but not one with the address given in the scam.

    http://www.loterianacional.com/spanish-lottery-scams.asp
    http://onlae.terra.es/avlegal_ingles.htm
    are both official websites of the Loteria Nacional and they warn on it also of the scam.

    Hope this helps someone avoid paying money and never being able to claim your winnings.

    BTW, the person who got a response to be picked up by someone at the airport. DO NOT ever fall for that. They had a similar scam in France and then held the person prisonner until he/she went to the bank to get money and pay them off.

    Hi all,

    I’m the winner of exactly the same amount as Tobias, same date, also in Luxembourg!
    I have the copy of his letter it seems, all the references are the same, by regular mail, stamped in Almeria Jan16th, number 0474003, on a real stamp.

    They at least have to invest some money as bait – it’s indeed well done. They MUST be getting cash from some suckers, otherwise they wouldn’t invest in stamps. So beware, beware, beware!! that it’s not YOU who is paying for it!

    Just received the urgent communication:
    Datestamp 23/01/2009
    Cheap and nasty inkjet print
    Generally full of spelling & gramatical errors.
    Note the Hook: ”Government Tax can not be deducted from the winning amount because of the insurance bond policy” presumably this covers the smarties who suggest deducting the fees / government taxes (which you have to send to the ”agent”) from the prizemoney.
    Best thing you can do to make a profit out of this one is to collect the attractive Spainish stamp & ”ALMERIA” postmark & give it to your grandchild. Maybe in 50 years or so it will be worth a fortune!

    As for the rest – pure crapola!

    Thanks to Tobias for the links – saved valuable google time!

    I have recieved one of these lottery notifications this morning with prize winnings of 935,470 euros. Thought it too good to be true but also very strange as I have no connections what so ever with Spain (live in England). Not happy they have my address so it’s going in the re-cycling bin!!

    Hi,

    My grandfather, who lives in Belgium, got this letter from Almeria (where he has never been) some days ago: same amount of money, same adress, real stamp… What a coincidence… It’s nice that this site exist, so that we don’t have to doubt one second about the authenticity of the letter. Thanks!

    I just received a letter today, in the north eastern United States. all the same information on the letter…the thing that struck me the most (after receiving an international letter with no return address!) is that the date today is February 10, 2009 and the letter is dated 04/02/2009…what?!
    I’m glad this website made it so easy for me to put the papers into the shredder!

    YES!!! I’ve won €815,950 !!! Get in.

    Perhaps all us winners can meet up for a big party and light cigars with our money??

    I’m in Madrid next week on business, so I might employ some rather large doormen and go and collect my prize in person. Anyone else who wants theirs let me know, I charge a mere 5% for my services as opposed to their 10%! Actually saying that if I get your winnings, you’re not having it – I’ll be in barbados.

    I assume they stole the stamps to send these, otherwise they are going to well out of pocket.

    Hi, my bf got a letter from International Lottery Board S.I. – Loteria Primitiva Gratis – Madrid, Spain, stating that he has been approved for a lump sum of 815,510 euros from International Lottery Board Summer Promotions held on 22nd Dec 2008. (signed by Vice President-John M. Gomez) It says that 520,000 names were drawn through a computer ballot system and that the funds are deposited with a finance company insured in his name. He is req’d to fill out a claim processing form for Vinsas Security Company S.A…

    This is the first time he has gotten this by letter so we decided to look into it. I must admit it looks convincing…

    Is this yet another lottery scam?

Strangely enough, the winning numbers are the same as quoted on several previous letters….and so are the winnings – 935,470 euros – strange hey !! Nah…don’t think we’ll bother with this one – but I have taken the letter to the police to see if they’re interested.

    I have received mine today posted from Briefzentrum in Germany. I live in London and I am really happy to win 615.810 euros. Unfortunatly my spanish girlfriend doesn’t like money and so I am not going to claim my prize. So here is my lucky numbers if you want to claim my prize, 13-15-16-21-34-36 and ticket number 025-11-464-992-750 in the 3rd category. Call Don Antonio J Gomez the foreign service manager of Ocaso Security Company S. L. or Antonio Garcia, The Vice President of International Lottery ElGordo or why not Don Diego De La Vega alias Zorro ;-) at +34-656-598-941 and Fax number: +34 912919515. The Prize has to be claimed before the 28th June 2009 and you’ll have to give them all your bank detail of course and pay them 10% of your prize. My suggestion is that you pay them the 10% straight away before receiving your prize…..

    YES….IT’S A F… SCAM. A hilarious one….But the thing is that there is always 1 or 2 minutes when we think that it could be true. So we go on the internet just to check….sometimes I wonder if I am as intelligent as I think I am………….

    Just one question this is an official id which is owned by my company. So who gets the ”money’ – me or my boss :)

    It is signed by Vicepresident Raul J. Gonzales and there is named as contat agent Pinto Garcia where I was asked to fax a request to to get a certified cheque on the win. – The letter was sent with a stamp from Portugal.
    The German text in the letter is quite good – but the paper written on is an absolute desaster.
    As I cannot remember to ever have participated in any spanish lottery I have look at the internet and found a lot of ”collegues” here who have reciede similar notices on lottery wins.
    I think a better leave the money at the lottery to do a healthy work.

    Hi All,
    I have just received a scam letter too! Apparently according to a letter from Portugal which states I have won one million euros/ £915,810 pounds. Alarm bells rang when the letter is a photocopy! Not even on original headed paper, asking ME to give THEM MY BANK DETAILS – I don’t think so, to claim my so called winnings. Naahhhh I won’t bother thanks. As for the poor english & grammar. Thought I would google it to double check my suspicions, and voila it confirmed a lottery scam. Thanks guys.

Such a pity it’s all a hoax I could really do with it but thanks for dragging me back down to earth everyone, I was floating about in dreamland again today.

    I received a similar letter from the desk of managing director international promotion/award dept. It says ” We are leased to inform you on the release of BONOLOTO SWEEP-STAKE LOTTERY/INTERNATIONAL AWARD PROGRAMME”LOTERIA NAVIDAD” held in Madrid Spain on 22nd of DEC.2008. Due to mix up of names..blah…blah…and there goes winning number.. you have been approved for a lump sum payout of 500.000 euros. The thing is that it looks kinda real, but interesting thing is that they don’t need bank info. You can opt to receive certified cheque(i know it is bad spelling). I kind of believed for a minute, but now I know it is another scam. The question is how the hell they got my US adress ?

    I received one as well unfortunately for them I have had this stuff before and can easily recognise a scam think its time considered sending false things back to them like a cheque with the name Mr.I.Noidea, and for every time they respond pass on their letters to trading standards and gaming autorities if you do not have a trading standards in your country.
    On no account pass any banking details if you do get in touch with your bank to inform them of the letter and they in turn will pass your old card details on to fraud department who will monitor any activity on your card.
    I hope this helps.

    Wishful thinking seems to work around the globe! Otherwise these people wouldn’t keep on trying to profit from it in such an ”unprofessional” way, would they?
    I admit, though, the idea of winning so much money has been a very tempting one for me, too!
    We’re all human, aren’t we?

    bonjour,
    j'ai recu hier la lettre de la part de la loteria nacional m'informant que j'ai gagné 615.810,00€. je ne comprend pas les commentaires en anglais. Quelqu'un peut m'aider et m'expliquer de quoi il se traite. J'ai l'impression que c'est une arnaque. merci

  • Anonym

    This is really idiotic :)))).
    I’ve also received a postal letter yesterday, not e-mail, with kind of similar text in it as represented above. I’m in Bosnia. Difference is in amount – I didn’t ”won” millions, but ”just” 615.810 EUR, also based on some f…ng air ticket, as this lady mentioned before :))). Similar things I’ve received several times by e-mail, but never as a letter! :)

    I must say that I’m really surprised that somebody has so much free time and willingness to send all this stupidities around the world… it’s rather demanding ”job” because they have to find all our names somewhere on some white or yellow pages, then to make and print all these forms and letters, which is not free if we consider paper, printer ink and necessary time, and finally they have to go to post office to send it :))).

    Amazing…really :))). I would like to meet this person(s) personally, just to see him/her and to try to analyze that mental constitution :)

    For this guy who asked ”what he exposed himself to”, the answer is simple – if you provide them with you credit or debit card number, especially if you provide them with CCV No. from that card, then run to your bank or call them immediately and request blocking of that card. Maybe it’s too late already, depends of when you sent those data. And…good luck ;)

  • Kimberly

    Thanks for posting! They're off the internet and are now operating by MAIL. I just got a letter – in English, Italian, and French (written atrociously!) – offering me € 615,810 (the same amount as the in the last comment by Natalie!) for a mere 10% of the winnings. Crazy people! I haven't been to Spain in years!
    After reading some of the posts – something occurred to me! While I didn't go to Majorca, my sister came to visit me from there (perhaps leaving my address with the hotel as her next destination!). Can't trust anyone any more!

  • nikkelindqvist

    Oh, you're probably in tons of open databases, such as phone directories and such.

    Interesting though that they have gone off the web now. It might have proved a cheap, but somewhat too open environment for them :-)

  • Catrina

    Well boys and girls, they've crossed the pond now. I'm in Canada, and have won not just wonce, but three different times….I must be really lucky! I've reported it to a local fraud watcher whose job it is to shut down things like this, but he said they're everywhere, so one gets stopped, and three more pop up in his place. Glad to see there is still intelligent life out there tho, or more of us would be falling for this nonsense. Cheers all : )

  • Vicosmopolit

    Hello Nicke,

    I also got a letter from Loteria Nacional, Madrid Tel: 0034 603 107442 from the international promotions/prize award dept. The amount won is the same as a few other people's here on this website, €615.810. I was in Spain in April and I travel a lot, so I thought it might be true. They wanted me to reply latest on 15th August 2010, so I went to my bank Barclays here in Italy and asked them to fill out the ”confidential” ”PAYMENT PROCESSING FORM”, which I did. I asked my bank to fax it to them, which they did yesterday. The receipant was IBERIA SEGUROS S.A. and the fax number: 0034 911 881310, with attention to Mr Don Jose Luis Fernando, Foreign Services Manager. I asked my bank if it was ok to leave my bank account details, they said yes, it is unuseless for people as they can only send money to me, not take any money out of the account.

    This morning I was called by a woman Madame Rachel Domingo, she said that she worked at the transfer department in Madrid, I called her back, but I think the number 0034 622 424438 I called was a mobile number, which I find strange. She mentioned that I need to send 1.500€ quickly to a person ”Mary…” as I am not a Spanish citizen and never worked in Spain, this is for issuing a document of declaration of that I am not supposed to pay taxes in Spain. I asked her to send me a fax explaining all this. She promised to do so, but I have not yet received anything.

    I was suspicious so I called Banco Popular on 00800 34 800800 and asked them if they new this person, they did not.

    Is this a fraud or could it be true?

    Thanks for your or anybody else's advice/help.

    I have been getting these sweepstakes in the U.S. but they would ask for you to send money to be in the jackpot. I must say when I recived the letter from loteria nacinal spanish sweepstakesI thought my prayers have been answered. It seemed so real because the letter initially doesn’t ask for any money. I never got to contact them but I had my suspesions. Then I decided to do a google search and I found this article. Thanks to all the feedback because this helped me to realize that I almost was scamed. What a nasty thing to doe to people.

    Dear All,
    I received the letter 2 days ago. I feel relief to have found this site and all your comments. I have looked deeper into it. As this company seems to be located in Spain, you can report it to the Guardia Civil. There is a link where you can just inform them without making a denuncia (sorry, don’t know the word in English), but so just let them deal with it, and hopefully the more we are the sooner this will end https://www.gdt.guardiacivil.es/webgdt/colabora.php

    Hi! I was Lucky for couple of  hour before I realised that this email, claimed that I hade won close to  1 milj euro.

    (ONT.canada) well, as i read through this blog it amazes me that here we are 3 years later and it continues.. I received my win letter via mail from Loteria primitiva, Madrid Spain. beautiful letter i must say. my letter came with the payment processing form, however mine has an option of deposit into bank acct or certified check.. Haha think i may send it requesting a certified check.. shit they obviously already have all the other info they are asking for..what the heck!!!! warning though.. when i typed in loteria primitiva to search, my computer went to blue screen, with black lines of fuzz then shut down.. maybe this isn’t about bank info..maybe they are trying to gain info through computers themselves???don”t know // had crossed my mind when that happened..well, i going to request my certified check for 815,800Euo now..let ya know how i make out

    Hola! Soy de Argentina, provincia de Buenos Aires, de La cuidad de LA Plata, recientemente inundada. Hoy 20/04/2013 mi hermana recibio una carta de las mismas caracteristicas que describen. Nos comunicamos a un telefono de españa que resulto ser un numero de celular con un sr. Francis Lopez (hijo de ingleses dijo). Y desconfiando del cuento es que busco en google la direccion de la Cia de Seguros universal y me encuentro con estos comentarios. por eso aporto el mio, para aquellos que no entiendan ingles. Sepan que es una estafa! Gracias gente por la informacion!
