Global Lotteries: The Microsoft Lottery Scam

With the development of mass communication there has been a growth in the number of frauds and scams available – many involve supposed lottery wins and not all involve legitimate lotteries such as the UK lottery draw or the European lottery.

There are indeed many global lotteries in which you can win but I have been sent details of a scam involving a fictitious lottery run by Microsoft (thank you, Nelson).

An email is sent out claiming the recipient has won a substantial sum of money in the ‘Microsoft Lottery.’

The winner is then requested to send either personal details (perhaps bank details) or a sum of money as an ‘administration fee’ or similar.

Clearly the fraudsters want either to steal the recipient’s personal details/identity or simply relieve them of money. In some instances victims have supplied the requested details or funds and are then contacted several times in succession with further requests. It would seem that, once a victim has been identified, the criminals see them as an easy target and try to get more.

There is no Microsoft lottery of course and in any case you will never be in a lottery you did not know about. You have to pay money to join a lottery or lottery syndicate in advance. Also none of the legitimate global lotteries will contact winners direct – if you think your ticket has won you a prize, it is up to you to claim the money.

Microsoft themselves issue this advice on their website: “Microsoft customers are often targets of a scam that uses email messages to falsely promise money. There is no Microsoft lottery. Delete the message. If you have lost money to this scam report it. You can also send the police report to Microsoft and we will use it to help law enforcement catch the criminals who send out these email messages.”

The best general advice is to ignore any emails, letters or telephone calls that are both unexpected and seem too good to be true – even if it seems to be from one of the legitimate global lotteries.

If there is any doubt you can always Google the name of the lottery, look to see if any scams are already reported and check the official website of whichever of the global lotteries is concerned.

Never part with money or details to someone you do not know.

I have been given details of the contacts on one such ‘Microsoft’ email and these might help identify future frauds. Avoid anything using these, even if it apparently comes from one of the global lotteries.

The details on the email were:

British National Lottery: Free Salsa Lessons

 

 

 

The British National Lottery provides finances for a wide variety of good causes the length and breadth of the United Kingdom and one of the smallest and yet valuable projects has been awarded money from the lottery in Powys, Wales.

 

A few years ago the residents from Ystradgynlais in the county were awarded £610 from the British National Lottery funds to provide free salsa classes to all the residents.

 

The classes are held in the Octopus Project, a centre in the community dedicated to promoting healthy living to all residents. It was recognised that there was a general lack of exercise among the residents and it was decided to find something that would inject a sense of fun into healthy exercise. There was a widespread interest in the idea of salsa classes.

 

In addition to the need for exercise, there was also a need for childcare to allow mums to join in. It was for this the British National Lottery money was most used.

 

Following the award, 15-20 local people regularly turned up for their dance sessions, which they were able to enjoy for free.

 

Project leader Elaine James said, “I tried it myself and it was really good fun, but there was only one man there so he had the pick of the ladies!”

 

The healthy living centre has received a total of £500,000 from the British National Lottery since it opened in 1999, in the centre of the deprived Penrhos estate in Ystradgynlais. It provides art classes, a children’s centre and Woman’s Aid.

 

The name Octopus indicates the aims of the project: Opportunities Created To Overcome Poverty, Unemployment and Sickness.

 

Playing lotteries online really can help communities.

European Lottery: Scottish Winners Get Involved

What would you do if you won a huge amount of money in the Eurolottery draw?

You may recall that the last record winners of the European lottery, Chris and Colin Weir of Largs, Ayrshire, had conservative plans for the money they had won in July this year (see the story here). You may also recall that they then had to go into hiding as their decision to go public with their Eurolottery fortune lead to a torrent of begging letters.

The couple have now started to discover exactly what to do with their Eurolottery money. One decision has already led to controversy. The Weirs have always been supporters of independence for Scotland and have given £1 million to the Scottish National Party.

This donation should not be a major surprise as Mr. Weir did stand as an unsuccessful SNP candidate in the 1987 election.

The money given will help to fund the campaign for a referendum on the subject, despite a recent opinion poll that suggested the support for independence was on the wane.

But the couple made use of their European lottery win in other ways too.

Instead of luxury cars, they have bought themselves a couple of Suzukis, although they have bought cars for friends too. They have now move into a luxury house and have helped a long list of local good causes.

After all, the money they won from the Eurolottery draw was theirs to spend and they seem to be using it according to their consciences.
