2010 World cup in South Africa FIFA Promotion team

When I received this as a word document in a phishing email, I had to share. Take a look at the graphics – the scammers that sent this email are trying to look official by showing pictures of people who won their lottery; they are so incompetent that they actually used a picture from a Michigan Lotto Winner!

To top it all off, they claim to be using a new ‘java-based’ software package to generate results, as if that matters (perhaps their DOS based package gave away too many funds : ).

Here is the scam below:

    I just received an sms that I have won R 450 000 due to the 2012 FIFA yearly mobile competition, and that I must contact Dr Williams to claim my price. I phoned and knew it was a fraud and spoke to a black Nigerian stating he is Dr Williams, I aksed him if they have a office in SA and he said no, this is already a no no give away tht they do not exist. I also asked him about all the other aliaces he has on the net, and he replied it is people that do not believe him that placed it there. I alos told him that FIFA in SA know nothing about the competition, his commetn was that it is only from the UK. This is just one more scam and I wish that MTN and Vodacom can stop people like this to get cellular numbers in SA.

    On 16 April 2012 @ 11:45 pm I received a text sms on my mobile phone. The sender was phone number: 13125886663. The written text:
    “SA2010 Worldcup Anniversary. We wish to inform you that your number has won 500,000,00 GBP Call 0027783676108/ Email: claims.mike( at) live.co.za: Refno: XA87-2P”
    I replied to the sender a text: “Proof it!! sent me the prize straight away without bullshit hassle”
    As I predict : NO RESPONSE
    I sent an email to the account they provided above as directed by the,.
    As I predicted: NO RESPONSE
    I made an effort to call the number given :001127783676108. I spoke to a male voice who did not want to disclose his name nor ID status role in the Claim Department of FIFA (whatever).
    I recorded the phone conversation. He said words to effect :”send an email as suggested by giving your Full name, date of birth, address, mobile phone number, ID of your nationality.”
    I said words to effect: “Why should I send all privilege information to stranger who does not disclose the identity like you Sir”?
    He kept suggesting me to follow up the order prescribed on their Game.
    I learn from here that we must trust our rights to judge a SCAM – CON – CRIMINAL. But I have evidents of my conjecture to refute their game.
    BEWARE, We are working hard as we have to earn our decent life. But, those scam around us will easily suck our energy and honest effort for our sufficient life style.
    Do not let them do it to you. You have rights to protect pursue defend being skeptical to any “nice offer in this NASTY world” Nothing free.

    I don’t know who you are because your name was not indicated. It is very said to tell you that you fell into the hand of Scams. Both the IMFCA and FBI are not the real FBI of Nigeria. They are under impersonation with Carol Anne Hewitt to promote her scam artist.

    More of this scam below:
    My name is Mrs. Marian Rholiya. I was equally victimized early last year. February 26th 2010. I was contacted by Mr. James Hooks under the pretence to give me loan. He said i will only have to pay $215usd to process the loan to my account. There after he keeps demanding for more money. I sent him almost $3964usd before I realize that he was not real. I was under a helpless situation till I was directed by a lady Mrs. Catherine Ronoh to a savior Mr. Harrizona Broutos early this year 13th January 2011. He actually gave me loan and brought back my helpless situation. I will advise you to be very careful of these so called lenders out there who claim to be lender, but they are out there to defraud.

    Though I do not have his contact number right here, you can reach him. I only paid $103usd. The beautiful aspect of it was that I got my loan. Mrs. Catherine Ronoh equally obtained loan through his company.

    I received a message saying that I had won R1m in the Fifa UK.Promo. To contact David Isaacs 071 970 9562. I phoned from a land line. He congratulated me and requested either my bank acc detail or postal or physical address. Also required my ID. As I was suspicious he gave me
    the name of James Morgan in the UK who is the Promo Director. +44 792 4522 153. I phoned this number but mr “James’ was very ‘pushed’ with my call. I realised that something is not right. I think this is a scam.

    I have just received an SMS informing me that I have won a million rand I mean how the hell do I win a million in a fifa 1 goal competition that I have never even entered, I was told to contact Mr Jones on 0845357336 and the SMS is from 0796108133 I wonder where did they get my numbers. never fall for this

  21. Jenny says:

    Got a sms from “johnny Morgan” saying that my cell number has been chosen to win R450,000 – Reference SA/P286. Please note in above comments he has also called himself Richard Morgan. I phoned, got a man with an African accent, he got upset when I started asking him some questions. (I knew this was a scam). Among the questions I asked him was “You sound African, how come you have a British name?” He got very upset, he said that he was born in England, so I then asked him why he did not have a British accent, he started stumbling over incoherent words, So I called him a F…..g Nigerian crook and he slammed down the phone. I have not been able to get through to him again, because I have plans on terrorising/harrasing the shit out of him. The number the call came through on is 082 683 5278 and the number I was told to phone on the sms is 071 027 1279. Surely, with this RICA thingy they should be able to trace this pig. I wonder how many victims has fallen prey to him.

  22. trudeau says:

    Wow i got the sms few days iago and i called the Agent by the name Mr. Mccarthy and ask them the address to the offices and they told a wrong adress.They asked me to sms my ID no,fullnames.adress and the winning code.M still not sure about the real deal here but i called my service provider and they say its a scam.

    This is the sms I received today, 25 Mrch 2011:

    Congratulations, your mobile number has won R320 000 in the FIFA Mobile promotion with Ref/No FA36. To claim your prize callDr Richard Morgan on 078 245 0030.

    I phoned the \Dr\ who turned out to be a Black man, I asked him what type of doctor he is and where does he practise. He gave such a lame stupid reply. I was then told that I have to pay R720 registration fee in order to get the money paid over to me. I said I have no money, why does he not take R1 000 off the amount and send me the rest. I also asked for documentation to be send to me, I am still waiting. From the beginning I realised it was a scam, but still phoned just to make sure and of course, the \doctor\ lends a bit of credibility, but the moment they asked for the R720 I knew this was it. How to catch such sheisters????

Pretty sure I won’t be hearing from them again.

    Lucky me! I receive this kind of rubbish on a daily basis usually from undisclosed recipients(this suggests the same mailings will reach thousands and thousands of individuals): sometimes to one of my email addresses.
    Low and behold, sometimes my winning numbers, bare the same reference numbers, batch numbers, ticket numbers, serial numbers as some of your previous entries.

    Amusing? Maybe, but also very annoying!

    I recieved an sms this morning saying that my mobile number has won
    R710 000 in the FIFA 2010 promotion.
    So I called the number they gave to call, but the guys who unswered the call
    was so unprofessional…
    He did not even introduce the company… or whatever he is working for, he just
    said “Hello”.
    he then asked me for my bank details, when I told him I don’t have a bank account, he wanted me to go and buy 10 MTN prepaid vouchers worth R180 each
    and then to call him and give him the recharge numbers, so I put the phone down
    because I knew that it was not legit.

  37. esther says:

    i just received this message on my mobile phone now & i dont have time to waste replying them. saying “your mobile No won $65,000 in the Africa Mobile Promo for claims send your name, phone No to email: [email protected] i think there must be an investment before a profit or dividend. so fellows dont ever get excited by this type of messages, it has never and will never come true. the companies whose names are at stake should be able to trace this perpetrators and take them up . is this possible?

  45. Jolijai says:

    I got the same one as Neil in SA – sms from 0723239984 telling me to call 0837473620. I forwarded the sms to the 083 number but changed the ref no (to collect money) to read Ref:fuc off. Hopefully the Fifa con agent got the message.

  46. koni says:

  47. Vivienne Ayerst says:

    I received an sms saying that I had won R950 000 in the Fifa Mobile award UK – (that would help! :) I called the number said to the African gent who answered the phone (Mr T. Leo) that I was sure this was a scam and that if they were out to draw money from a bank account – I did not have any. I also said that I would never give my banking account details to anyone. I continued to ask many questions, as to the website address, and if one was a winner of that amount of money -surely they would personally phone? I said that I would only accept a bank guaranteed cheque made out in my name and delivered to my postal address. He asked me to call back in 30 mins. And then said he would call me with the details….. strange that I never heard from him again :)

  48. Ivana says:

    Da li je moguce da su se setili da na ovako glupu foru varaju ljude? Moj suprug je juce dobio SMS poruku slicne sadrzine, s tim sto su drugaciji podaci. Na nekim sajtovima sam pronasla da su ljudi zaista dobijali takve nagrade. Zanima me sta je istina, a sta prevara?

  49. Neal says:

    I think the scammers read this blog. Their latest scam is that you receive a text message on your mobile phone. Mine was sent 00 52: 55 The amount of money I supposedly won is now a meagre ZAR 600, 000.00. The text is sent from a SA mobile number +27723239984, but you have to phone a different mobile number +27837473620 to claim your prize. Being suspicious, I phoned the number from which the text message originated. That number does not exist on that particular service provider’s mobile network. I then phoned +27837473620 and a gentleman answered “fifa rewards centre” . Please be aware.

  50. debby says:

    can somebody tell me what this email is about??
    I called the person he said after i’ll send my details he will confirm if i won??

    WHY ISNT THE POLICE INVOLVED, IF THIS EMAIL IS GOING ON FOR YEARS??
    ACCORDING TO THE RESPONSES FROM JUNE 2008???

  51. Sanjeev Anand Saxena says:

    daily i receive atleast email from NOKIA, BMW, Miscrosoft, and Yahoo online lottery, no one is able to stop them. tell me what to do which such junk mails everyday.

  52. FATIMA says:

    ohh my word! i got the same email about that fifa promotion thing and like seriously im gonna phone these people and swear the heck outa there mothers grave….its really not funny if they think they are…and its bout time they learn to grow up!!!

  53. ELIZABETH says:

    Mine is a bit different form yours in that it was an SMS that informed me that my cell number has won me R520 000.00 i must immediately contact James on such and such a number from Global Mobile Promotion on Friday 27 Aug 2010. I was so excited i desperately need cash so i couldnt believe my luck. Then today Monday i got an email telling me that i must first pay R3460 into their bank account for a winning certificate which is supposed to be 0.007% of my winnings.

    i havent replied to the email i just forwarded it to my friend in the intelligence office to find out whether its legit or not. Its sad really because i could do with that kind of money even if its just a R1000.00

  54. Bonita says:

    You guys! All the emails you get from these people claiming to give away such amounts is a lie! Are you kidding me? Don’t even bother giving out any information… Let me tell you as story: this happened to my uncle who lives in Cali. They said they needed his basic info and he needed to send them $500 so they could send him the paperwork(the email stated he inherited some random person’s money from Nigeria) and he did it! They actually sent him the paperwork and he filled it out and sent it. They never got back to him, but he lost a lot of money!! The police can’t do anything because you guys are the ones who need to actually think and be smart! Don’t let these people fool you…. NO ONE will just give away millions for no reason… Especially if you never involved yourself in a lottery or draw etc.

    I received an sms, saying that my number was randomly selected I have won 450, 000 from FIFA to claim contact Nelson Sanda. To my surprise I phoned the guy Nelson Sanda to find out the process, firstly he asked me to buy R900 MTN vouchers and send the recharge voucher number to him. Secondly I’ll get the code to login on FIFA website and fill-in the form with my details, bank account then the money will be transferred into my account. It was tempting but I didn’t do it.

    Well, I guess some of us are unrealistically hopeful and for a few days I too lived in dreamland. When I received my sms I quickly proportioned it as follows: KSPCA, MSPCA, WSPA, Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, my daughters’ uni debts, my mortgage, and so much for my sisters, nieces, nephews, & dad. Then I did the sensible thing and looked up the ‘net! But not till after I’d handed out my account details. So if you’ve done what I have, maybe you’d like to do what I did next. I contacted my bank to put a red flag alert on all withdrawals on the a/c I currently use, set up a new account for where my salary actually goes, then closed the old a/c when I no longer needed it. And changed my email address – friends & family quickly get used to a new one. I’ve not been asked for money so, like many of you others out there, I wonder what they can possibly get out of it?

  85. Pat says:

    Hi People

    I have received two of these “winning” e-mails. One is from FIFA and another from a retired woman that wants me to “inherit” R 87 million dollars from the money her husband left her. What confused me and made me not to believe her was that she will no longer be connected to the world as she is retiring to a ranch. Funny hey???

    I might be desparate for money but I can also see scams.

  86. Catherine Robertson says:

    I so nearly got scammed – what a joke. Thank heavens for internet and search google – William Cole Up came all the unhappy campers who very nearly got caught. Shame for the one who fell for it. The saying of “what goes around – comes around” beware =:(( its a very true saying.

  87. Zoleka says:

    Firstly, I received a missed call from a no. that sent me an sms on the 11th of June 2010 at 01:51 when i return the call it was a wrong number. By 02:20am same day I received this sms “Congratulation!! Your cell phone no. Has won, R 500.000 in 2010 fifa soccer world cup promo. Promoted by NGO with a ticket no. I must phone Mark Adams the payamnet manager to claim, when I phoned the next day I was asked to buy airtime inorder to activate my ticket and sms my banking details, ID no. amd my physical address. I am not sure about this, it sounds like a scam.

    if wishes were horses, then beggars would ride.
    i have never won a thing in my life, well maybe its because i have never entered anything.
    i had to email Frank Donald on [email protected]
    please be careful out there peeps, some idiots really think that i would part with personal info. i sent an email telling them to take of my winnings and personally bring me the cheque – since they have my mobile number, they can trace my address and find me there. Haven’t heard anything from them yet!!!

  91. Vicki says:

    Eeeeich !!! wouldnt it be nice – surely by now they should know that people just wont buy into theses scams –

    Hey, I am in Australia and recieved the same message only on my mobile phone asking me to email a Ref No. to [email protected] as I had won $xxx,xxx. So I sent them an email saying I had Apparently won and the EMail I recieved back was so unproffesional it was laughable it was signed Dr Nelson Sanda.

  93. What if says:

    What if it was true, and I’m the only one with an untraceable address and a vacant house next door to check it out. I wanna see how far it goes. I’m gonna scam the scammer.

    The do the same crap on Craig’s list when you are apartment hunting. You get an email so fill out an online application, they will make you the keys once you mail them your money. B.S. I guess they really do think American’s are dumb. May be some of us. But we shall see.

  94. somewhere in Oklahoma says:

  97. Teria says:

    LISTEN! IT’S ALL FAKE! I received an email yesterday stating that I won
    2 million dollars and that I had to contact a john martin. I knew that it was a lie. It sounded to good to be true!

    First of, where is they coming up with all this money when people is over there dieing of starvation? Please tell me. Plus, how are they saying that we’ve won and we have never entered or even heard of these organizations? I am good for checking with the better business bureau and searching on google. I even searched the names and websites and found nothing. I just wanted to tell everyone that I know that it is a scam because I recently watched a show and a Nigerian man, his girlfriend and their group had set up a fake organization and was taking money out of people accounts and got caught.

    So when I receive emails that want me to send in some damn money, I just delete them and you should do the same. DO NOT BE FOOLED and send them people your money! Heck, you would have to send the news to my house, or even announce my name over the radio or TV to get me to believe!

    I received mine too on an Sms message. I filled it up and send it and 30mins later i got a reply to fill the form stupid enough i did and then send it back. The bank account details was then been sent back to fill and the payments, thats when i decided to lookinto the google and came across these. I knew it was a scam, and I now i am playing along, I asked for his PASSPORT DETAILS to show the real persons which we are incorrespondence with is Real and his Nationality shown in the passport. I know passport never lies, so I am waiting for the Persons reply and has not come back yet. …

    Its good to feel rich, and also feels good to play their tactics also. It is a mind game.

    But I hope these scammers should be caught one day, and face the conscequences of their doings.

    thanks,

    Tino

  102. Bec says:

    I received an SMS telling me I had won US$5.4Million and to e-mail to make my claim.

    I already knew this was a scam, but I sent the e-mail anyway to see what they came back with. Within 4 hours of e-mailing them, they responded tellingme to forward all my personal info to some guy with a gmail account.

    I knew this was a scam. If people don’t realise that no one is this lucky, then the 2nd give away should be when they ask you to forward you personla information to a internet based e-mail address. If it was the real deal, surely given the fact they say you have won such a significant amount of money, they would have their own registered domain names and not be using gmail, hotmail and yahoo accounts.

    Maybe the owners of gmail, hotmail and yahoo need to look at their processes and allow people to notify them of suspect e-mail addresses and have these people shut down! Remove there way of communicating and we can start to reduce the number of people that fall for the scams.

    Some of these scams are so bad, that if you get sucked in, given that a lot of it has to do with stealing people money and passing it around, if the authorities find you, you can be charged and convicted of fraud and 9 times out of 10 you wouldn’t even know you had done nothing wrong.

    My last word. Ignore any e-mails bringing you good luck that you.
    1: hadn’t entered a competion for &
    2. come from internet based e-mail accounts!

  103. Marc says:

    For those people who they fooled sorry to hear but the truth is it’s a scam. for those scamers out there trend carefully if all of these peoples in here find out about you your ass will be scimmed not scamed people if you didn’t entered a competition it is a scam BE CAREFULL PLEASE !!!!!!

    this is such bull…..I received the same sms as all above. I don’t pick up that anyone received a deposit certificate stating that the amount is in a transit account in their name? Well, I did. I also received a document giving me the telephone number of the Barclays telephone banking with an account number that is opened in my name!!!! A pin was provided and I actually tested it. I dialed the international number and entered the relevant banking details and there was the amount of 2, 800 000 000 deposited. The option to change the pin code was also provided, which I changed! And tested, and it was still there!!!

    I paid a lot of money to the so called Mrs Ly Song. She forwarded a detailed bill of cost and I had to pay more money. When I requested that she must forward some proof of the documents, she DISAPPEARED from the face of the earth!!!! Luckally I got sniff in the nose and yes, too late, started surfing on the website. And here I got this website.

    The short of the long is, what goes around, comes around. Lets pray that they don’t steal more money!!!

  114. Lize says:

    Hi

    Also received this scam lottery prize email!! I am from South Africa the host country for Fifa 2010 Soccer world cup and it is a pity that people exploit attractions like these to make a unlawful buck or two out of it.

    How stupid do these people think we are? The sorry thing is that some people will actually go and pay the fees for the alledged “attorney” and never see their money again…. ever!!!

    Hope they get caught asap!!!

    Below is an email message on which I received on March 10, 2010. I have in the past received emails claiming I won so much in an email lottery. I am very skeptic, so I google those emails and found out they were a scam. I googled this one also. Look people, don’t fall for these scams. If these were legit, I believe there would be a more legit and documented way to tell us. I am so tired of them using legitimate corporations or organizations, and risking their reputation. This is the email which I received……………….
    ————————————————————————————————————–On December 3, 2009, the first leg of the FIFA World Cup™ Trophy Tour by Coca-Cola came to an end. The second leg of the FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour by Coca-Cola will see the trophy visit additional countries across the globe from January to April 2010. This will give millions of fans around the world the chance to have a closer look at football’s most famous prize.

    I did a reverse lookup for the phone number of this SCAM and it is a cell phone and it is showing the address or location in Las Vegas to be a building at the corner of 4th street and stewart avenue. I assume that is “downtown”. Someone should call the FBI to storm the place and lock these crooks up.

  120. Robster says:

    My turn I guess, and hey $2 800 000.00 sounds like a damn lot of cash, the guys names change I see, now its Chris.D. Benjamin , but I see our famous Ly Song is still part and parcel of this whole scheme, I can only remember that the wheel turns and these guys will get whats coming to them, or in them while they sit in their tiny cell wishing they had stopped in time. People remember, what you give is what you will receive. Take strength in what these people will receive is not going to be a walk in the park. As for this website, thanks guys, you saved me a lot of embarrassment.
    As for LS KINDS LLP, go get stuffed.

  121. Ettienne says:

    The International Federation of Association Football – FIFA – has cautioned against illicit emails which are currently doing the rounds informing people that they had “won” 2010 FIFA World Cup “lotteries” – it’s a scam.
    “FIFA continues to be alerted to emails fraudulently claiming to be associated/linked with FIFA, the 2010 FIFA World Cup and/or Local Organising Committee informing recipients that they have been selected as prize winners in a lottery draw and have won substantial sums of money,” said FIFA.

    Appear to be official

    FIFA issued a statement on Monday, 19 January 2009, warning the public to treat such unscrupulous emails with utmost vigilance as some of these emails appear to be very official and tempting.

    “Many of these emails appear to be official and most of them ask recipients to provide their personal details, including bank account information, in order to claim the prize money. FIFA strongly advises the public to treat any emails concerning lottery draws or cash prizes with suspicion and extreme caution,” FIFA said.

    Meanwhile, the SA2010 website mailbox has also been inundated with a slew of emails from concerned recipients of such emails from all over the world.

    “I received an email informing me that I won in a certain South African Lottery FIFA 2010 World Cup Bid,” said one website user, who wanted to verify the accuracy of the email.

    “Please, advise how I can verify and/or confirm my winning email address in South Africa FIFA 2010 lottery because I received several emails from deferent sources. I am not certain of the accuracy of these notifications,” the user wrote.

    The scam email apparently claimed the “award” was “sponsored by: Danny Jordan, FIFA President Joseph. S. Blatter and CEO/Chairman of Microsoft, Bill Gates and a consortium of software promotion companies”.

    Used as references

    The con artist used the Shine 2010 and the South African 2010 Government websites as references in his letter while asking the recipient to furnish personal details. The swindler also left his seemingly credible contact details and “ticket” and “ballot” reference numbers.

    FIFA distances itself from these emails and advises the public to ignore such emails and resist the temptation of divulging their personal details. FIFA also urges the public to report such scams with the Consumer Fraud Organisation

    “FIFA reiterates that these lotteries have no connection with or authorisation from FIFA and are in no way related to the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa. FIFA urges people not to provide any personal or financial details if requested to do so,” FIFA stated.

    How to spot email scams

    •Email address ballot: there is no such thing as a “computer ballot system” or “computer email draw”. No one, not even Microsoft, has a database of email addresses of the type or magnitude they suggest.

    •Terrible spelling, punctuation, syntax and grammar: scammers apparently don’t know how to use spell checkers. We assume they dropped out of school before that class. They use almost excessive and random CapItaLiZAtion. They often can’t even spell “February” or know that “22th” ought to be “22nd”.

    •These scammers usually write at the third grade level. Being non-native English speakers, they also often get first names and surnames (last names) reversed, so you will frequently see names like “Mr. SMITH JAMES.”, instead of “Mr. James Smith”, along with the peculiar usage of periods (full stops) and spaces or the lack thereof. Real lotteries also proofread their emails and look and read more professional.

    •Using free email account: the scammer is writing to you from a FREE email account (Yahoo, Hotmail, Excite, AIM, Gmail, etc.). Don’t you think a real organisation would use its own email, its own domain and website?

    •”Keep Confidential”: real lotteries THRIVE on publicity – they don’t want you to keep anything secret – the publicity causes people to buy more tickets. there is NO risk of “double claiming” because they can validate where the ticket numbers were sold.

    •The scammer wants you to keep quiet because they don’t want the police or ConsumerFraudreporting to hear about them! It should read: “For our own security, you are advised to keep your winning information confidential until we have finished scamming you!”

    •Email notification: NO REAL LOTTERY SENDS AN EMAIL TO NOTIFY WINNERS. Period. Full-stop. End of story. There mere fact ALONE that you received an email saying you won a lottery is proof that it is a scam.

    Hi all, thank you so much for this web site, my story is 100 % the same as Delene Olivier. I also searched on google for the attorneys firm LS Kinds LLS Mrs Ly Song and could not find it. On the Power of Attorney forwarded to me I found the address and when I searched for 21 Vernon Street London, it seems not to exist.
    I strongly feel that we should stand together and get these people exposed. Who wants to join me?

  128. gert stander says:

    Hi all, i received the same old same old. also send the 2nd email but didn’t go further than that, thank God. i’m trying to get hold of the fifa people in SA as i think that they would like to know that there are people that uses there name (which is restricted) in such scams. So if anybody knows of a contact person pls let me know. I think that this must be stopped.

    Regards

    Gert

  129. Delene Oliver says:

    Thank you so much for speaking out!! I also received a sms that I was a lucky winner of $2 800 000.00. The famous Mrs. S. Brown and then Mr. Chris Dean and then my attorney Mrs. Ly Song. These Names are just to funny. I was very unsure but as we all want to be better of, I also e-mailed and got the same response as most of you, I wanted to make sure before I go furher so I googeld them and found this web site, thank you so much, Never give your bank account nrs. to anyone. Always use your ownd attorney, to check out if it is a scam.
    Better safe than sorry!!!!

  130. storm says:

    hi.
    a few days after receiving the previous emails regarding my ” winning 2.8mil USD – and telling them to contact my attorney here in SA – i received the same emails from them – only this time with terrible spelling and grammer mistakes —
    a word of caution – they are getting desperate to get someone to fall for it!! please be careful!1

    I also received the sms telling me I won the coca -cola mobile draw!!! do they think we are all idiots!!!
    thanks for the site – it prevented me from being taken for a ride!!!

    God Bless!!

  131. mags says:

    also received an sms stating that i had won 2.8 US $ and that I need to contact Mrs S Brown at [email protected] The sms was sent from the no +278200700371.

    Please be aware that this is a scam. These idiots are looking for your details in order to defraud you. Do not provide them with your banking details as they have ways to clear out your accounts.

    If this were true, it would have been advertised heavily in the papers in order to really promote the world cup in South africa. And besides, its not like fifa has THAT kind of cash lying around to just give away. Would have been nice if it were true but nothing in life comes free!

    be alert people.

  135. storm says:

    I also received the sms winning $2.8 mil from Mrs Janie Alfie, followed by one from Susan Brown, Chris Dean and the cherry on the Cake – a Dr W Chester – supposedly director of the ROYAL BANK OF CANADA. all of them swearing on their lives it is legit. i received several confirmation letters and a foreign transfer form from the bank. my family and i are having severe financial trouble so we were hopeful and replied and gave info incl my bank account ( which luckily is empty 99% of the time) – Ms Ly Song also sent me her Power of attorney docs etc. in the meantime – the Dear DR CHESTER from the bank emaild me that i had to pay $805 for service charges within 3 days to claim my money.

    i only have internet via my cell phone so i didnt check but by then i realised somethings fishy – i spoke to my brother and he told me certain things that made me realise it was a scam…

    i emailed them both telling them that i think they are scumbags and to provide proof and validation to my attorney here in south africa and to liase with him directly… i quote:: BOLLOCKS TO YOU SCUMBAGS”

    i have yet to hear from them again – this was 2 days ago!!!

    I am terribly afraid because they have personal details incl my bank account – i did not give them a power of attorney – my own husband doesnt have that!!

    please advise me!!! I am Scared. i was naive and terribly hopeful- -my daughter has a heart condition and is always sick and i have to relocate – this would have helped had it been true

I called the number on the email (+ 447924079896 – hot line number) and when i asked the person on the other side if this was a scam he quickly said goodbye and hung up. hid voice was definately that of a nigerian person. I then called the alloted attorney Hon. William Cole on Number + 44 2033185287 and when I questioned him he told me to come to London myself to claim, and also hung up, he too was nigerian.

    these people are a bunch of useless excuses for human beings who are taking up a lot of the precious resources (air; food etc)- they should be caught and hung by their unmentionables. I received this crap & sent my details through, with cell number & name- the rest of the stuff was utter lies from me. Will these people ever learn- do they not have a conscience? I reallu hope that they are caught & disposed off in the appropriate manner for scamming innocent people out of pocket. I actually sent them a response telling them to stop this BULL-SH*T and that they should be more productive with their lives instead of scamming people.

    I hereby saying that i received a message that says i won $ 5000000. I was not told what to do then to claim this amount of money. My cell phone number is .

  148. Mim says:

    i got this email, and would love for it to be true, so of course i try it out and now i’ve been sent a power of attorney form and transfer form as well, and the law firm is LS Kinds LLP how does one find out if its true, and let me know before i make a complete idiot of myself and i’ve actually kept all there correspondence and would like for these guys to be caught

  149. Marius says:

    In December 2009, I received a text message (sms) on my mobile phone congratulating me on my $2 Million win. All I needed to do was confirm my email address. I thought I’d play along, see how far this would go. It wasn’t an instant reply (they must be very busy sending these scams).

    The best part is the grammar they use, the spelling error on ‘official’ documents from a supposed attorney and the free email accounts they use. Anyway, I was sent 2 documents from attorney LS Kinds, which I have never responded to. I was never asked on either documents to reveal anything other than my full name & email address.

    What would they gain from that? Anyway, just wanted to let everyone know that these scammers have somehow gotten access to our cellular/mobile number.

    Just be aware.

    What a bunch of assholes. Do they honestly think that I will fall for this crap. I’m in South Africa and received the mail 12/01/10. What is concerning is the fact that they make use of the FIFA World Cup logo and mention all the relevant soccer parties in their letter. I’ve won an amazing amount of 750000 British Pound and can resign pretty soon. The reality of all is that I know its a scam and I have to work from 8h00 to 17h00 for the rest of my life.

    Please don’t fall for these assholes.

  152. Rose Galvan says:

    hola Iàm from Mexico and also got an SMS saying I won 2.4 US million . This is a worldwide scam! please do not answer them.
    Son ladrones!! scams!!

  153. khomotso says:

    oh my gosh i cannot believe this. honestly i was getting very excited coz it looked so legit and all. until i got the “bill of cost” that i had to send to the attorneys for the “office work”. eyo it just started sounding dodgy when they start asking for payment i mean why would you be paying someone for winning. they started asking stuff like my bank details and thats when i realised that it was too dodgy. i then googled it and found all the other victims. But happily i was the victor in the fight to resist $2400000 in cash,

  154. Lesley says:

    I first received a SMS informing me that I had won and dialed the number (like an idiot) got through to a French answering machine, which I obviously did not understand a word of. Then I received the e.mail informing me that I had won 750000US Dollars and that the Bank of England would be contacting me to verify my payout. I phoned the “Client Manager” who informed me their offices are at Ellis Park Johannesburg and I should fill the form out asap and forward it. I received a return e.mail from him informing me that I had indeed won and someone from the bank of England would be in contact with me in 24hours. Then I decided to goggle and came across this page. I want to do something like take serious legal action against the person that answered his cell and the other e.mail address. Who are these people and how can we stop it !! This is the most cruelest act I have experienced. We must be able to do something to stop this. Any suggestions ??

  155. Zakiyyah says:

    Good Day,

    I copied and pasted the email I received in reference to this scam of all scams. I receive these somewhat frequently but always investigate first. Know the saying “if something sounds too good to be true, it normally is.” It’s bad these people prey on people especially with the economic conditions being as they are. I hope that they can be caught and prosecuted.

    Something should definitely be done….to this ppl who have nothing better to do with their lives it seems…?????

  164. Wynand says:

    Thanks for your information as this will save plenty of people money if they just investigate this ongoing scam. There must be a way to stop these people and warn the innocent victims.
    Great to have these type of websites.
    Thanx

  165. Sampie says:

    Hi, I’ve been posting the following comments on sites hoping to convince some poor sole that there is hope! Here is what I post:

    I received this crap in a text message, thinking it was crap. I even went that far to pay the claim fee of $1550. To my amazement i got a payment into my bank account, but not the so claimed 2.8$ mil, rather $10 000. It all seemed legit and I did receive the money from Barclay’s.

    After reading all this comments, no one went the full way, maybe you should.

    I decided to write about this because I feel bad for all the people I have scammed and want to come clean. I am sorry.

  166. Jolandi & Francois says:

    This is low how can people do that to other human beings? Mrs Brown Dean and LY Song you should be ashamed of yourselfs!!! Think of it this way one day you will have to stand before God and tell him why you have scammed people for money!!! If this is what money do to people then i’d rather be poor and happy!!!

  167. coops says:

    OMG. I recieved the SMS saying that i have won US$2.8M. I had to contact Susan Brown I got a response and was refred to Chris Dean who refered me to Ly Song I have sent all details now I ghave a request to Pay GBP 430 , by western Union directly to Ly Song, now I realise this is a scam. I’m worried now as these sick people have my details, luckily not my Banking Details. The FIFA authorities should do something about these sick people.

  168. Odwa says:

    i also received the same sms saying I won 2.8 m dollars, i must contact Mrs brown, after that Chris Dean, after that Ls kinds LLP. i decided to google them I’m glad to find out its a scam. Becareful guys.

  169. susan says:

    i have received an email on the 22 nov 2009 saying that this is to comfirm your cell number have won US$2.8m for FIFA 2010 international award. to claim contact mrs brown via [email protected]
    i then had to email a chris dean by [email protected] he then emailed me and refered to my power of attorney Mrs Ly Song and her email adress will be [email protected]
    Flip would i have loved this if it was so true. Would have been dedt free.
    i am still awaiting my answer wheter it is a fruad or not – would keep you posted hey if i will here from my Attorney Mrs Ly Song

  170. Alfred Magwaca says:

    Is this true, if not why do fifa allow these people to make fool of vurnable people who are in distress already. Fifa is quick on other things and on this I see no action taken to warn people about the scam.

  171. Ramah says:

    Thank you all. My mother received an sms saying that she had won about 2.8 US dollarsd and the first thing I checked was these people’s email addresses. Other thing is that my mom never entered a competition via sms or even phoning any 2010 FIFA promotions and yet they claim that she won. All too obvious that this was a scam!

    So I wrote back to them via email and made them aware that we know that was a scam. Till this day, they never replied.

    And we had to fill in a form with our details. We decided to do so, but say if after this anything come back and they will want our banking details then it is a scam. Also what made be a bit sceptical was that they had a email address googlemail.com.

    What is the law doing about these low lives????????????

    i got the same message.saying i won 890,000.00 pounds sterlings! wow! YEAH RIGHT!!!!! this chris is probably the same guy .who’s got nothing beter to do with his time.wonder who pays his phone bill? :) moron!

  176. Thea says:

    I res the same sms. Shame on you!!!!!! I was making plans to pay off my dept. And to pay my kids school fees. My car was repo`d about a month ago. Im a single mom and i do not earn a lot off money i cant eaven aford the basic things in life. And still you get people who doesnt give a [email protected]#$ and still wants to take your hard earnd money.

  177. Mazwi says:

    Hi

    Huh, i also receive an sms informing me that i have won $2.8million and i was supposed to claim the prize via Mrs Susan Brown and Kindsllp attorneys, but with God being on my side I searched for this Kindsllp and found out that this is a scam.

    My message to everyone out there: if you have really won a certain prize, the issuers should give you a call! am I wrong?

  178. angela says:

    I also recieced same sms saying I won US$2.8m and i should contact Mrs brown, then Mr. Chris Dean and now just contacted Mrs Ly Song. something told me to do some surfing and i found all this info. thank you guys I nearly fell for it. Shame on you scam bugs.

  179. Niek says:

    The same happened to me. Received SMS on 22nd Nov 09 and Mrs Susan H Brown replied promptly, Chris Dean ([email protected]) and attorney (Solicitor) Ly Song ([email protected]). The UK tel numbers and fax are real but they refuse to provide physical address. Why does Fifa not act against them using their name, but Fifa acts against South Africans trying to sell products in their own country. Do not send them any money or personal info and watch your credit accounts.

  180. Jakes says:

    I recieved this same email.

    Replied to it. Got some documents from an attorney.

    Contacted my own attorney regarding this.

    It would be nice if all this was true but it is hard to believe.

    If they are out to steal people`s money then they should be stopped.

    Thanks

  181. brighton says:

    also received an sms on 22november saying i’ve won 2;8 u.s dollar on my cell number and surposed to contact mrs brown i just ignored

  182. Sandy says:

    My mom also received sms this week. Shame she was so excited (me too). They told her that she won US2.8 dollars as part of FIFA 2010 promotion. I e-mailed a mrs. Brown then Dean something and now the attorney Ly Song. They also sent me forms (Power of Attorney and TT form) to fill out for them.

  183. Hannes says:

    Got a sms saying i won 2.8m. Went as far as filling out the TT form and some other form, got a e-mail saying i had to pay 430GBP before they can transfer the money. Did some research on the net and found this web site. Don’t believe anything you hear or see rather investigate and then make up your mind.

    Thank you for saving me money

  184. Tevin Naidu says:

    I also received an email stating that i won US$ 2.8 Million. I was supposedly to contact Mrs. Ly Song
    This is a hoax and should be reported.Anyone that can trace these people via the internet should.

  185. donya says:

    Hello Judas,

    This is a scam – do not contact her of if you do so, do it with the understanding that you are may lose your money!

  188. Magezi Bila says:

    I received similar sms that I won some lottery thing from the UK but I didn’t follow it cause I could feel that it’s a scam,anyway I’m too smart for this.And recently My dad received an sms that he won money as part of FIFA 2010 award promotion and I tried to follow it up and now they are telling me To send to another email.This guys are pathetic and I wonder where do they get our numbers from,are some of our friends involved?

  189. natalie says:

    i got a message this morning and it says i have won 890.000.00 pounds sterling the fifa 2010 draw and it says to claim i must contact mr. chris smith. i want to know is it for real or what?

  190. Hennie says:

    I am from south africa and I received an sms telling me that i have won 2.8 million US$. Can you believe It i replied to all the people involved. Starting at Mrs Brown ([email protected]) then Chris Dean ([email protected]) Then I received an e-mail from L S KINDS LLP 21 Vernon Street London SE1 27SW, England.([email protected]) This letter was a POWER OF ATTORNEY form that i must complete. The second letter from them was a (TT) FORM which means that it is used for foreign transfers only. The next letter was to say we hereby confirm receipt of the completed forms. wechave submitted your file for the process of your non – resident tax clearance and foreign remittance permit, and the payment bank (barclays bank plc) shall commence the process of your prize payment value in your choice or mode of payment. Please find the related charges as below stated 1 insurance. GBP 250 and 2. non residence tax clearance GBP 180 total GBP 430. THE ABOVE STATED FEES SHOULD BE SENT VIA WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER SERVICES FOR FASTER PROCESS WITH MY NAME LY SONG. I tried to contact then on the telephone numbers given but with no sucess. I replied with an e-mail asking them i don’t understand the way i must send them the money through Western Union money transfer services. With your speedy coopration this process will be completed within the next 2-3 days for you to receive your prize payment to you. Im still waiting for an relpy. Please people be on the watch out for people who wants to take away your money. I realized there must be something to it and then i went on to do some internet surfing. My suspicions was right. So if you still believe you can win that money after you read this and previous articles then you can give then your money for free. Im gonna take it up with our local newspapers to warn the people about this scam. HOPE ONE DAY ME AND YOU WIN THIS KIND OF MONEY IN AN LEGAL WAY.
    GOD BLESS

  191. richko says:

    All i can say be carefull people there is no money at all it’s only lies and fantasy. I got the same email but i don’t believe that a such a lot of money will be mine. I m a poor man and stay poor and proud to be. Don’t dream it’s over.

  192. Petrie Smit says:

    Hi there fellow victims
    I am from South Africa and I have also recieved a SMS fromTHE NATIONAL UK LOTTERY MOBILE DRAW. Luckily I checked the net because These people just could not deside if I had won US$2 ,000,000.00 or US$2 ,400,000.00. What a lot of money!!! My only problem is that I have to collect the winnings in London myself within 7 days??? so I was wondering if any of you are in London?? because if you can collect my winnings in London I will collect yours here in SA and than we can have a moerse PARTY.
    As my grandfather would have said [email protected]#$%@K.

  197. Johannes v Aswegen says:

    Have received a similar sms on the 19th Oct. 2009 and then an e-mail. The attorney’s name , however, has changed to L.S. Kinds LLP. What I don’t understand is wat they can achieve with this information? They have only asked my name age and addresse.

  198. Aveline Terblanche says:

    Same here. These guys need to be stopped. Cant somebody do something? I was just as glad to find out I won and now………… nothing!!!!!!!

    I hope they get a cramp where it does not belong.

  199. Nita says:

    My husband has also received an sms with the millions he won, we send the e mail to the person named in the e mail and the we received also a letter of attorney of this “Mr JF Kinds LLP, I see if a previous comment there were also the same person’s name mentioned, well done MR JF Kinds, if I wasn’t cautious you would have fooled me.

    this mail address have been sent a mail from the SOUTH AFRICAN FIFA WORLD CUP 2010 INTERNET LOTTERY PROMOTION that this mail has won a sum of 820 000.00 US Dollars. this mail was sent to me from Mr. John Smith some days ago. i want to know if this is true and that this mail has really won this sum. they said tickets were pinned to the mails addresses.Iam confused and want someone to assure me of the truth. if u can, please help me. i badly need ur cordial help, this matters with me so much. lots of thanks and sorry for the inconvenience. yours.

  204. Jackes MV. says:

    I still cant believe there are still sick people out there, instead of using their time and brains productively to benefit themselves and their family, they waste it on something so foolish and entirely not profitable.

    I also can not understand how they got away with such scams, even now, without being traced and put where they belong to idle as much as they wish because honestly: There’s no country deserving to have such people with so lean understanding on how to spend given time.

    My email was even mentioning: Please don’t share this information with anyone to avoid double claiming and also mentioning: Communicate through email due to high charge of cellphones, then my question was, Why worry because I’m about to be a millionaire, I was promised US$2, 800, 000.00. but you worry for my call cost!

    I nearly fell for it, but i said let me poke first,then i got this..shoooo, my chosen legal practitioner is Jonathan Fyne JF Kinds.
    But i’m glad because i told them to get the nearest Hell and curse their devil because no one in his right mind can spend God given time on such RUBBISH

    I wish they can wake up and smell the rooibos, “poor them”. Even as I respond i’m very skeptical,,,Lord have mercy on them

  208. Ravi says:

    I got the same email today and i called and the person on the other end said they were that person…and that he was with that affiliation…i couldn’t believe it. I actually responded to it all. It is really disappointing because some of us are in need of money. Just cant believe these kind of people….

  209. El Lucko says:

    I received this same email and today I received my check for one million dollars in a envelope with a 32 cent stamp. Needless to say I was ecstatic. This is one of the few legit ones – NOT.

    hi friends
    i received a similar email, it seemed very professional, it was in pdf format, fifa headers, contact email, and even an actual phone number in south africa…. i actually called this person and he answered the phone saying “hello you have reached Benjamin Duru at the local organising committee, how can i help you?”
    the gentleman seemed to have all the answers for all my questions, and claimed that he all he needed in regards to information was simply basic info you would give out on a daily basis. and in regards to the money transfer, he would send me a bank draft and does not require any account information….
    does this sound fake to anyone?

  212. DeeN says:

    I have also got the same email on 9/11/09 stating that my email was one of the lucky 7 addresses that won for a weekly promotion. To contact Temba Peter by phone or email with the information. Luckly I researched first before sending any other information. Damn fools…..who do they think they are.

  213. roxanne says:

    i think this is bill!!!!!! why give people hope in the world when there is hardly hope for the world it self. I almost was hoax but lucky i have nothing on my name to con me out of. so good luck and try some one else.

  214. Bongiwe says:

    I’ve received an SMS that I’ve won US$2,8000.000. I was told to contact Chris Newman and James Doran. U know I’ve responded to it all. It is very bad because some of us they are in need of money, and they die when they find that it’s a scam. Guyz u need help. One day it will come to you and u will feel who bad it is.

    i received something similar with a picture very well presented i havent response yet but am going to talk to police and maybe set up a sting and catch these fukers but thats unlikely the cops would probably tell me to erase the email and go on with my life….

  217. william kirkpatrick says:

    I received an E-Mail from William Powell that I won a MILLION DOLLARS !!! I was told to contact Tim Modise at tim [email protected] . William Powell is a dead actor & Tim Modise is a radio talk show host.To top it all my mothers last name was Powell, I wonder how far these people will go to get their kicks OR DO THEY NEED KICKED? I am not too sure the FIFA would like these people using it’s organization for such things. Don’t people have better things to do rather than hassle others?

  218. Delene says:

    I have received the same sms and mail from Chris Newman and then I responded to it all. Received a email from James Doran saying his from Link Laters LLP. Have contact the firm and an investigation is underway. This is really bad for people that is financially in trouble to get things like this and think it is all good. Shame on you for doing that.

  219. ronish says:

    hi i got the same message today and when i tried to call the number to actually tell the so called chris that people around the world are not fools like them and that they should try to focus on earning money the right way rather than coning people and at the same time wasting there as well as our time. ny way thank god that people around the world are much more smarter than there ass…….

  220. Fay says:

    My husband also received an sms saying that he had won 2.8mil dollars and had to contact Mr Chris @ a yahoo address ref no. 25A69. I had my reservations believing that this was not true. I checked out the fifa scam website and low and behold it was a scam. Please do not be fooled by these wicked scam jukkies.

  223. kagisho says:

    Hi.

    My wife got the sms yesterday at about 23h00 last night saying she must contact a certain Mr Chris. I cudnt believe how pathetic and cruel this people can be because ive heard of such scam. I think fifa must do something an warn people who might fall for this scam they even go as far as saying you musnt tell anyone about this. I hope they burn in hell for what they are doing to innocent people.

    Please help i got the same and send the all my details including my banking details. Can people be so cruel?

  226. Chanel says:

    Hi,

    I received an sms this a few hours ago congratulating me. The amount is US$2.8M, um, is it all a scam???? I was asked to contact Chris via email (the email address was provided).

    I have seen other web pages which claim that some of these sms’s are legite. Are they? Is everyone just assuming that it is all fake or do you know for sure that it is??

    Please advise

  227. Portia says:

    I cannot believe this…My mother received the exact sms from this so called promoting company telling her she’d won $2.8 mill…They sent a form to facilitate the process of claiming the prize money which we completed (being gullible and optimistic). Today I received an e-mail from them telling me to contact a nominated attorney Mr Johnson Cole and that the money will be paid into a nominated bank account.
    For some reason I got a funny feeling and thought let me check the address out only to find these responses from you guys. Good thing too…
    Is there anything that can be done to stop these people??Surely FIFA is being affected somehow as these people are using their name…

  228. linda says:

    Sir

    I received an sms about 3 weeks ago from FIFA 2010. the message read. congratulation you have won 4.5m US dollars in the fifa 2010. In order to claim my prize I was requested to contact a certain person wth an email address. Just out of curiosity I did, but did not disclose any banking details.

    Should you wish i would like to forward to you the response I received from FIFA 2010. Kindly forward to me an email address where this claim can be verified whether it is legitimate or not.

    regards

  229. Nita says:

    Hi,

    I got a message on my mobile abt.winning US$ 4.8 M and it asked me to contact Chris & email id was given too… next morning, i sent the email & then Chris asked me to contact someone in some other email. i sent that too.

    Then, i got an email requesting to fill forms of legal acceptance and send the same to someone…i did that too and then i got last email from barclays (on the letter head & with all contact details of some David Roberts & he asked to fill in the details (there were 2 forms – TT form & letter from Barclays). I did that too.

    I was not aware of this scam & now i am afraid that i’ve provided all details to them…pls. help as i am really worried.

    I got the same as (ojm August 17 2009) Mine was on the 11 August 2009. I wonder if FIFA knows about these clowns. Have they nothing else to do with their lives but send people stupid e-mails and sms’s.

    There must be method in their madness, or they would not do it. There must be something underlying their motives. Can These people not be reported? people like these gather information on a person and use it to their own advantage.

    Please warn all you friends and loved ones not to disclose any personal information to these cyber hooligans.

    I am a South African and have read your comments. From what I gather I can tell you that I know some of the guys like Desmond Dube and Jabu Moleketi these stupid people have used. The people mentioned have nothing to do with World Cup. Desmond is a TV personality while JAbu is a former Deputy Minister of Finance during the tenure of former South African president Thabo Mbeki. Those who trusted their gut feelings and ignored the scam did the right thing

    Be that as it may Here in South Africa because we know their style of doing things have come up with different approach. Today I received a letter from the post saying I was being informed that FIFA Grants Award in conjunction with the European Champion Spain and united Nation organisation are giving me
    € 715, 810, 000. 00. They claim that this is a measure of universal development strategy in trying to balance the standard of living among citizens of South Africa in preparation for SOUTH AFRICA FIFA WORLD CUP 2010.
    The letter goes on and on with these utterances and warns that I must not tell anybody not until the money has been deposited in my account. My mini research done suggested that all people listed in th letter were unknkwn entities by FIFA
    Guys beware of these crooks you might be easily carried away and trapped especially during this recession era.

    Don’t fool urself
    I have received the following unsolicited email.

    Attn: Mr. XY

    I have not seen your mail but I write you now, based on our telephonic conversation. I want you to bear in mind that whichever way you will have to know that As a matter of policy once winners has been notified any expenditure in the course of their claims will be borne by the winner.

    Like I suggested to you that it will be easier for you to employ the service of an accredited attorney who will represent you in this course, since you do not have direct flight to Johannesburg , and again you will have to get a visa and all the logistics before embarking on this trip , bearing in mind the cost of your hotel accommodation for three days here, you still have to come along with this fees Registration and Notarization fee , Stamp and Deed Duty fee, legalization and Administrative cost if you calculate this it will amount to €3,750( three thousand Seven hundred and fifty euro) which is more expensive considering employing the services of an accredited attorney. If you choose to come you must come along with this fee.

    This is because preferences are given to the attorney’s since they are working for the Organisation but hence you are here you will have to bear the expenditure in this vain all alone.

    As your claim Agent I will advise you to employ the services of an attorney immediately as this is less expensive.

    This message is confidential and for use by the addressed only. The content is not to be disclosed to anyone other than the addressed. Please advise the sender by telephone or email of any error.

    We shall be waiting for your response.

  252. SHARADA KUMAR says:

    I also receive this kind of email earlier this Feb. I wonder were they faking or were genuine people . they had ask me the details which I had mailed to them. I called one Leslie Thomas on her Number but got no reply accept that of an answering machine . well they are just ruining the name of The FIFA football league.

  253. The dude says:

    Good ol Mr. Paul Morgan almost threw me for a loop. He actually called me sounding like a genuine person. When I heard that you would have to pay $550 to get a $2,000,000.00 check sent by DHL (which I knew was a lot due to me receiving previous goods shipped transglobal via Ebay), I was a little bit skeptical. When I heard that it would be $1550 to have it wired to a bank account, I was done. There is no way that you have to spend that amount of money to get a prize claim. If so, take it out of my winnings. Nice try guys, but no dice.

    I have received the following unsolicited email. I have been quite frequently receiving such emails. In my opinion all these are spam or frauds and a way of extracting money or syphening/laundering out funds in way or the other.

    I recieved one of these too and I’m mad as heck to fall for such a scam I hope they catch these people who rip off poor people out of their money!!! and hang them up by their toes for days no water or food then they would know how it feels to let people down

  261. suri says:

    Doy gracias a Dios porque me a iluminado a encontrar estas pginas y testimonios de diferentes personas, Pienso que aunque son nombres falsos y asi como ellos tienen la gran agilidad de contactar e-mails , pues asi mismo podemos descubrirlos y hacer que nos paguen lo prometido o que paguen con CARCEL HAY QUE ABRIR UNA GRAN INVESTIGACION ACERCA DE ESTO . A mi en lo personal tambien quisieron estafarme pero ya veran tendran que pagar.

  262. Sunil says:

    hello dears,
    I received the same thing, from Mr ‘Mr. Desmond Dube’!

    they really require some Good innovation

    Hi

    I have also received same mail on 15th Feb ‘09 from ‘ Makeba toba ‘

    Saying that i have won $ 1,500,000.00 dollar. (1.5 Million dollars)

    I have replied to leslie thomas,

  264. Rodney Bryant says:

    Just received similar e-mail today. Contact person is Mike Zuma. Looks like they might be attempting to legitimize the appearance of the validity because I won 2nd place ($820,000.00 instead of 1st Place ($1,000,000.00). Funny thing is I have never entered any contests by email. I really feel sorry for the ignorant and greedy people who fall for these type scams.

  265. Omran says:

    hello dears,

    I received the same thing, from Mr ‘Makeba Toba’!. Well heck, the email address didn’t even look real!

    mmmm it is not exactly the of someone who is giving you 1.5 millions!
    :)

  266. Desire says:

    Had a similar email today, was nearly fooled only because this sum of money would assist me, family, friends and those in desperate need.
    My contact person was Mr. John Modise I have sent an email to ‘[email protected]’;’[email protected]’;’[email protected]’ one of whom is chief exec for International Association of Gaming Regulators (IAGR), asking if this is a scam (no reply as yet). I may not be a millionairess when I wake in the morning but after reading the above comments neither will I be the idiot who believed this really was true (shame it isn’t though hey!), thank goodness for the internet and the opportinuty/ability to research; I will however sleep well now tonight.

  267. Ron says:

    I like messing with them, Here is my reply.

    Thank you!

    That is GREAT news to hear. My wife is currently traveling through South Africa
    with her collages from the Red Cross Society, I think they are currently in or near Beaufort West.

    My wife and I are financially secure. I inherited 16.3 million from my late aunt Esther
    last summer.

    So I am going to give my wife the biggest birthday gift ever. I would like to donate the
    entire amount of my winnings (minus taxes and any processing fees) to the following
    organization.

    The South African Red Cross Society
    Standard Redcross Donations
    Standard Bank – Constantia
    Account Number: 071760571
    Branch Code: 025309
    SWIFT Code: SBZAZAJJ

    I will make the following arraignments with Standard Bank – Constantia. I will send them a
    signed release of my interest in the winnings. I will also send a certified and signed transfer of
    funds form. They will be arraigning the transfer of funds with your claims department early
    next week.

    My contact Nelson Botha at Standard Bank – Constantia is taking care of all arraignments.
    Here is his phone number 0860101341.

    I would like to thank you Mr. Daniel Jomoh.

    Together we can make a difference in the world.

  270. Omar says:
