VERIFICATION OF CLAIM 56

A reader forwarded me this scam. The UK National Lottery don’t hold random email draws.  The only way to enter the National Lottery is to buy a ticket.  If you win, they don’t contact you (they don’t know who you are), you need to contact them.  Why, I wonder, does this scammer think the FBI (An American organisation) would need to investigate claims – we do have a Police force of our own!

This is a scammer, hoping to steal you money by charging you fees.  Ignore them.  You can find the real National Lottery here.

VERIFICATION OF LOTTERY CLAIM

All protocols observed. Please accept my apologies for my late response. My Name is Renner Merle David. I work with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). I am a contract staff currently attached to Verification department of the Camelot Group of the Online National Lottery. This is in lieu of checking false winning claims and Lottery Scams. Every claimant shall be verified by the FBI and winners must be duly paid. False claimants shall also be duly punished. I received an application letter sent by your Fiduciary agent, Mr. Daniel Smith for the Claim of your Lottery Winnings. The application is to be verified by the National Lottery. Note that all taxes have been paid by the National Lottery. Please read the extract of our terms and conditions below.

•In the event that the Company, in its absolute discretion, believes that the Claimant is not lawfully entitled to payment of a Prize or that a Prize has been paid to a Player (including, without limitation, by payment into a Players Account in circumstances where the Company decides, in accordance with Rule 5(D)(3) that the Claimed Play is invalid or defective, it shall be entitled to withhold payment of the Prize or recover or seek to recover a Prize already paid (including, without limitation, where such payment has been made into a Players Account) pending the outcome of all appropriate inquiries. Once the appropriate verifications and inquiries have satisfied the Company, in its absolute discretion, that the Claimant is lawfully entitled to payment of the relevant Prize, it shall credit the amount of such Prize to the Players Account.

•????????The Player is responsible, where applicable, for claiming a Prize and the protection of the Identification Information that enables the payment of a Prize.

•????????The Company shall not be responsible or liable to any person claiming a Prize which has been paid to a person who assumed the identity of the holder of the relevant Account and who obtained sufficient information about them to impersonate the rightful holder of that Account.

According to the application submitted by Daniel Smith on your behalf, your claim states your winning details as follows

    my friend recieved a claim verification saying that he won a lottery, from london uk. my friend gave me his permission to respond to that msgs. at first it looks so real, but the scammer has sent one instruction that makes it unrealistic. i live in united states for 20years, i am now living here in the philippines to study nursing. i am a member of jeannie’s kid inc. a nonprofit organization that helps kids with cancer. i came to the philippines and realize how unfortunate the kids here, no hospitals, kids needs to walk 5 km. just to get to school. i decided to start to do fundraising so i can feed malnourished children. i manage to buy a property that is very good place to construct a hospital for this unfortunate one, but untill now i dont have any money to even start the building. maybe i can finish my project once i finished my course and start working in united state as a nurse so i can have money to start a small operating center for the people in remote areas specially the natives (aetas). this is the reason why i entertain that claim verification message because i thought i can use the money for my project. i am not rich but i am determine to help whatever i can for this people. i was so sorry when those money that i am hoping to get and can help us build the building, end up a scam. i am now asking a lot of people to donate anything for this unfortunate people. if you know someone who can help me with this project i will surely appreciate it. i am only a student but i know i can make a difference with the lives of this people. this the my first action of asking for donation, even prayers will do. if money is not available.

    I have received the same letter via Mr Douglas Steele, and the infamous Pat Young. It’s complete bs that nothing is done to shut this scam down. I also received passports, FBI badge, and Ms Youngs lottery identification. They even went as far as Ms. Young providing her electric bill?? Maybe a new extra added believable factor?? But I am no fool, and thankfully there is just as much info on Internet against these scum bags. The fact is I really don’t think the government gives a crap and that if we are so gullible to believe this that it is indeed are own fault. I will admit due to the fact I am caring for a sick elderly parent I actually believed it for a second myself…then this little thing called “common sense” crept in!! It’s sad that we live in a world where such terrible atrocities take place and people actually become rich off of scamming people…oh wait I live in America it happens every day!! May which ever god they choose to worship have mercy on their souls. We are truly in daunting times and it’s up to all of us to stand up against these parasites that prey on the weak and hopeless. I’ll make my own money by busting my ass the only way anything made is worthwhile. Good luck to everyone!!

    I received an email pretty much the same as this. First they wanted to me to come to Switzerland to receive the money and I told them I could not. Then, they wanted $200 through moneygram only and I said I don’t have it. Now I have a diplomat bringing me my money personally from England. I’m a little nervous about this please provide me some feedback on this. I looked up my lottery ticket number on the website they sent to me and it checks out to be real but I’m still unsure if it is somehow a scam or not. This is the first one I actually received a phone call from and is actually bringing me the money. PLEASE HELP I’M CONFUSED!

I feel worried now after reading all of the letters above, and yes, I gave him my details, Oh How Stupid I Feel, My Mom always told me, If it sounds to good to be True, It is a Scam. I do not know why I believed him, I Guess it is because he sent me his American Passport and his FBI I.D., but after looking at the picture again, It does look fake. I know now that you can not win by your e-mail, You have to buy a ticket for sure.

    I have been getting the same e-mails from jamie sun and “FBI agent Steele”!! Telling me to come to germany or send $200 to receive documents and payments. Im thinking about going to the police station with the passport pic they sent me and fake FBI identification. I cannot believe people do this to others about such a large sum of money. what do we do?

    I was so excited this morning and I receive information from FBI agent Steel Douglas also, first from Jamie Sun, I am so glad that I looked this up first, to see their names is amazing, building peoples hopes up like this is a horrible thing.God knows one day they get what they deserve.

    I receive a lot of emails from Jaime Sun and F.B.I. agent Steele Douglas and they want me to send $200 in order to receive a check for about $3,000,000 since I can’t make it to Germany. I feel it is a total scam! It would be a shame if it isn’t!

    He’s still out there, I got the same exact details in an MS Word attachment this morning. The giveaway is in the email addresses:
    From: “davidmrenner@thefbi.co.uk”
    To: admin@national-lottery.co.uk
    If you type “http://thefbi.co.uk/” in the address bar you get a pitch for a free email address, same as Yahoo or Google. The address “http://www.national-lottery.co.uk” gives a warning that this is a known attack site. Con-men. So transparent.
