Nigerian Advance Fee E-mail Lottery Fraud
/ Amsterdam Netherlands Lottery Scams Spanish Sweepstake Offers / International Lotto Fraud / Overseas Prize Winner Scam / International Sweepstakes Lottery and Email Promotion


Take Special Note: The examples below, while promoting the fact that you have won a lottery, are sent predominantly by email and represent a consumer targeted version of the Nigerian Advance Fee Fraud which usually targets businesses and religious organizations.

The Nigerian scammers running this operation find that collectively seeking an average victim loss of about $1500 from individuals is easier and quicker than the average $10,000 they regularly take from businessmen who are offered a percentage of millions of dollars for their assistance in transferring funds overseas.

The various sweepstakes lottery names such as El Gordo Netherlands, Oy Keikkaus Netherlands, Algemene Loterij, Werken Bij Delotto and the Star Johannesburg all use roughly the same address, presumably either a mail drop or fictitious, of Burdenstraat 21B which they suggest exists in both Amsterdam and Rotterdam as well as in South Africa.

Note: The names of some reputable and valid lotteries have been misused by the scammers.

European Lottery Email Scam

Both the Netherlands and Spain are hotbeds of scamming activity with little or no government intervention. Many letters also originate from London in the U.K. or have references to contact points there.

Netherlands authorities are also interested in receiving copies of correspondence (pertaining to a Dutch address or telephone number).

Subject: Victimized but Caution Won the Day!
Date: 6 Sep 2001

Dear Les,

After a week of hair-raising upset, I finally managed to save myself a lot of grief and trouble, but the nerves will take a bit of time to recover. Underneath this letter, you will read the entire story.

Fortunately two very honest attorneys, one of them a neighbor who did not charge and my regular attorney, have saved the day. The entire thing was embarrassing to even get involved. I never purchased a lottery ticket, because I don't trust any sort of gamble. But suddenly the mail, below, appeared.

Upon the advice of an attorney here, I contacted the Royal Netherlands Embassy in Tel Aviv. They immediately phoned me and advised me that this is a terrible scam.

Early next week I will be getting the proper information to report this to the Dutch Police and take it from there. My attorney in Saint Paul, MN also checked and came up with the 'scam' answer. This could have cost me $1,800 USD -- which doesn't come easy to a 73 year old widow, living on Social Security.

Something must be done about this. I have been on the computer for about 14 years, and on the Internet for 6 years, so am quite literate and carefully. My favorite button is "delete" when these things come in, however, this one I opened up. My plan is to follow through all the way and do all I can to help stop this terrible crime. This is worse than viruses and victimizing elderly people is a horrible crime.

Yours truly,
Ruth Krammer

Spanish Inquisition

In this classic advance fee fraud one viewer asks why his winnings haven't arrived yet from the European Lotto Commission. The letter he received is accessible by the link below.

Spanish Lotto Notification

My Name is Marcelino Nieto. I received this letter in the mail and when I called the number on the document regarding my winnings I talked to a Mr. DeMartinez of Perpectual Global Security S.S. ( not Perpetual )

He told me to fax him a copy of my I.D. and bank account number. When I faxed the account number I only gave him the account number for depositing only. I did not give him the route number to take out of account.

He called me to tell me I needed to send a check in the amount of $1,702.00 in the name of Roberto Gomez. He called me back a couple days later and said he talked to his boss and his boss said I could send 55% of the $1702.00 and a letter saying when they transfer the money into my account I will send the rest of the money in full.

They say that my program number is insured with Perpectual Global Security S.A. for claim and presentation of my personal identity before claim is facilitated to the destination of my choice. The amount of my winnings is $214,501.00.

I am trying to locate Mr. Antonio J. Ednaz of the European Lotto Commission Spanish Head Office C.P 28090 Madrid, Spain to find out why I have to pay this amount when it is already insured. Can you please contact them and find out what is going on and why? The number is 011 34 620 05 785 for Mr. Ednaz.

Thank you for your time,
Marcelino Nieto 27 Aug 2001


27 Nov 2001

Thank you so much for your site. I too received a letter exactly like Marcelino Nieto, right to Mr. D. Martinez's name and number. It is very disappointing, but you have saved me money and heartache.

Thank you. Jill Wallace in Maine.


Search Engine Saves Another

I was doing research after I received a letter from the International Lotto Commission stating that I had won a lump sum of money and your site came up. To my surprise the company was listed on your site as a fraud.

I had contacted the lottery commission that sent the letter and the lady there seemed really nice. She said that I had won this money but since they had been unable to contact me the money was transferred into an account in my name with the Perpectual Global Security Company with a Mr. D. Martinez handling my account.

I contacted him and he said he would have to prove my identity and match the information received from me with the lottery commission. Once they verified the information then he would fax me the form needed to transfer monies into my bank account. He has not asked for any monies yet.

What should I do when he contacts me. I just don't know what to think. I had convinced myself that this was for real.

Some Insight from the Netherlands

1. The phone numbers used by the scam artists are real, and never seem to be disconnected by the local telecom operator (KPN Telecom). Apparently, the Nigerian mafia has found a safe haven in Amsterdam. Usually they take mobile phone numbers (starting with +31 6), but these guys manage to keep on using *real* phone numbers (20 is the area code for Amsterdam).

2. The companies "Eurolite BV" and "Werken Bij De Lotto" (translates as "Work At The Lottery" - can you imagine a lottery by *that* name???) are of course fake. They are registered and hosted by Exodus Communications, who does not take action against such activities.

3. Jansen is a Dutch surname, but Davis isn't a first name, so they have once again chosen a bogus person. I have seen they once had a certain "Albert Heijn" named as contact person which is actually the name of a Dutch supermarket chain.

Keep up the good work, Les, your website has proven valuable to many people who were about to be scammed!

I was the victim of the WeltLotto-Firma scam. My number is on your site and is WFL/67-AO9165798.

As a person that trusts people easily, it was a shock to get into the middle of all of this. I have phoned and send faxes and flew to Amsterdam only to return empty-handed.

This morning the guys still had the guts to tell me that they are going to send the money back to the WELTLOTTO FIRMAby Monday morning unless I can get a payment via Western Union to them.

I contacted my Bank Manager and they found your site. At last some light in the dark tunnel. I have informed Interpol of this as I should have from the beginning.

Australian Lottery Scam Using Counterfeit Checks

04/08/04 - New Britain, Connecticut - The police department’s detective bureau is continuing to investigate the mail fraud scheme a city woman reported to officers Monday.

Detective Harold Gannon, police spokesman, said the woman reportedly received a letter of notification March 8 from an organization that referred to itself as OZ lotto, DCT, Inc., allegedly based in Brisbane, Australia.

According to the letter, the woman won $405,501.14 from a $15 million pool called the Ausie 6/45. Gannon said a check for $2,500 was also enclosed with the letter and that the woman was instructed to use the money to pay for legal fees associated with receiving her prize.

According to Gannon, the letter stated that the woman should contact the organization’s North American Agency prize claim section prior to cashing the check.

After contacting the phone number that was given, the alleged victim was reportedly told to send the unused funds, totaling $2,100, to a Western Union in Canada.

Gannon said the woman notified police of the incident after learning the check she received from the group had bounced.

The phone number provided in the letter was found to be connected to an automated voice mail service.

The prize notification letter also requested that the winner "keep this award a top secret from the public notice until all participants have been confirmed and prizes remitted ..to avoid double claiming or unwarranted taking advantage of the situation by participants."

International Lottery Scam Victims

By ROBERT SMITH

06/07/04 - At least two Bahrain residents are known to have fallen for an international lottery scam, which informs people by e-mail that they have won a lump sum of $500,000 (BD189,000).

One of them was conned into parting with BD3,500 with the promise of landing the huge cash payout, according to a Dutch Consular Agency spokesman.

He said another had to be talked out of boarding a plane to The Netherlands on the day of his flight to collect the "prize".

"I had one gent who came to me who sent them a total of BD3,500," the spokesman told the GDN.

"Finally he came to the consulate and asked if it was legitimate.

"Luckily, we do get people phoning before they send money to ask if they should do it.

"I stopped one guy who was going to travel to Holland to hand over the money - he was flying that night.

"I managed to persuade him not to go, but it was very difficult to talk him out of it.

"He could not believe it was all fake."

The Dutch Consular Agency yesterday sent out an alert to stop more people falling for the scam, which appears to originate in The Netherlands.

The e-mails have been sent by a group calling themselves Mega Lottery International.

They inform people that they have won the cash prize after their e-mail address - attached to a winning ticket number - was drawn in a competition called Lottery Winners International.

Recipients are told their e-mail address has been selected out of 200 million company e-mail addresses and 300m individual e-mail addresses.

However, they are urged to keep the information "very confidential" until they receive their prize - due to a supposed mix up of some numbers and names.

Upon replying to the e-mail, "winners" are then contacted again - this time by an organisation which goes under the name of Standard Trust Agency, in Amsterdam.

They are asked to transfer a "processing fee" of 495 euros (BD231.700) to a cashier named Robison Williams before they can claim their $500,000 jackpot.

This is supposedly to cover "handling and filing" charges.

Recipients are also asked to forward personal details, such as telephone number fax numbers.

But once they have been duped into transferring the 495 euros, unsuspecting victims are then asked to transfer another 2,650 euros (BD1,240) to Robison Williams - supposedly for insurance and tax purposes.

However, they are then contacted again and told the 2,650 euros only covers insurance - that they need to send another 2,650 euros for tax purposes within two hours.

That is a total of 5,300 euros (BD2,480), in addition to the 495 euros for "handling and filing".

"This is pretty much how it goes on," said the spokesman, who compared the con to infamous Nigerian letter scams.

"They are all the same scams, but they just appear in a different form.

"They start off asking for small amounts and it does not appear serious, but it adds up."

In this case, the people behind the con are based in The Netherlands and use false stationery and certificates in their correspondence.

However, the phone numbers they give in their e-mails are for mobiles.

The Dutch Consular Agency spokesman said more people may have fallen for the scam - both in Bahrain and around the world.

However, he said some may be too embarrassed to come forward if they have already lost money.

The advice to people who do receive unsolicited e-mails offering vast sums of money in exchange for handing over cash, or other personal information such as account details, is to delete them immediately and not reply.

An investigation is now underway in The Netherlands to track down the culprits behind this particular scam.

But the spokesman said it was possible that the individuals behind the fraud may escape prosecution - even if they are tracked down.

"There is a central point in Holland that we can notify and it is being investigated," he said.

"But one of the problems is that what these people are doing is not strictly illegal.

"Legally, their correspondence is well worded.

"It is also difficult to catch these people because their address is fake and they use mobile phones.

"But if they catch them, they have trouble obtaining a conviction."
