Posted by Support Steve on 19 July 2012 06:44 PM

Dear LotteryNetwork Players,


Tomorrow, Friday the 20th July we have a number of BIG JACKPOTS, namely:

  1. Euromillions @ €100 Million yacht buying euro's
  2. Powerball @ $110 Million space tourist dollars

These can be played online and from the comfort of your home by visiting our official site:


A customer of ours recently gave us some email correspondence from a company that emailed her to tell her that she had won the lottery. From what we can gather, it went something like this.

Customer received an email claiming she had won the UK lottery, attached was the winning ticket as well as her details on it. You can imagine how excited she was on receiving the "good news". Our customer contacted us and we quickly worked out it was a scam. She has kindly given us the email correspondence to share with our other users, so here it is:

Dear Mrs. Tom Cruise (not her real name :)

Thank you for your message, and also to remind that the documents you are asking for maybe available with the national lottery.

Your funds were lodge by the national lottery payment committee and what was sent to the bank was your ticket and approval of payment with a letter of credit to pay the stated amount upon request.

so we have been patiently waiting for you to come forward for the claim of your funds untill there was a false attempt to claim your fund on the 20th March 2012.

Please find attached copy of receipt and payment receipt sent to us in your favor

Yours truly,
Mrs. Mary Mcvoigt

From the message below, the synchronization is a process of linking your fund through your card (electronically). in any credit or debit card payments, the transfer goes through synchronized channels between the merchants account and his/her Bank.

so let me know hen you can effect the payments and we shall surely process your request and complete your funds transfer processes.

Dear Mrs. Tom Cruise,

Sequel (the movie)
to our last telephone conversation, it is pertinent that the previous
fee waved to enable you access your funds has to be paid.
(This is the advanced fee fraud / 419 scam part of the correspondence)
According to the Digital Links and Account department , yours cards
credit channel was blocked due to the fact that you tried to load funds
before the card was fully activated and synchronized or loading funds
from unverified source.

Therefore, to fully unblock the credit channels and activate you account
again, the director insist that the previous fee has to be paid with a
telegraphic channel connection fee of GBP£225.45. (the excuse)

therefore, the total fee is required for full actualization of your account and card synchronization.

Activation Swift Charges : GBP£248.34
Transfer conversion charges : GBP£168.00
Telegraphic Channel Charges: GBP£225.45.

Total :GBP£641.79

director (no! Not the "Director"!) also said they have already done a direct credit of $100 to
your card to open the credit channel so that upon your payment os the
fees, then your funds will automatically synchronize to your card. (Goblygook)

Please let me know if you can be able to make the payment before or by Monday.

according to exchange rate of today, GBP£641.79 GBP = R8,458.50 ZAR (1 GBP = 13.1779 ZAR).
(will buy some nice new Nike Shoes for someone in Nigeria)
Yours truly,
Mrs. Mary Mcvoigt

Be on the look out for scam emails!

What is a lottery scam?

In a nut shell - scammers send out bulk spam email to thousands of potential victims around the world telling them they have won a massive prize for an international lottery. Usually these lotteries are genuine lotteries. Once the victim is hooked - they are convinced that they need to pay a fee to receive the prize. Once the fee has been paid - you will never see them again... however in some cases the scammers will convince their victims that there has been a mixup and you need to pay even more money to resolve the issue...

Where can I find out about these types of scams?

The simplest way is to Google it! Here are some searches we have done:
