    Just got this email. It’s spam obviously. But I am shocked to see so many people here post that they sent money?! Guys seriously! …… This is EXACTLY why spam like this exists.

  3. JANNER SARAGIH says:

    I ‘m also receiving a letter like above containing all. Nevertheless we first transfers some money for cost expenditures incurred to them (within 3 options payment schedule).After which one schedule payment has done in conjunction the winnerprize should be given some money as much average 500.000,00 GBP.
    I think they are fake, why ? because after we have been transfers some money to them via one options as they are said, they will be stop communication with us. And also we connection with them by virtual media without a lieu of.

  6. Robert McDonough says:

    I received the same email scam , and stupidly did reply only with the personal information they requested ( Name, Age, Sex, Date of Birth, Address, Phone Number, Occupation, Company, Next of Kin, Nationality and Country of Residence ). I did NOT provide any other information.

    After sending the rsponse I checked with Heineken’s website and confirmed the scam ( I should have done this BEFORE sending them the information ). I immediately emailed them letting them know that I am aware of their scam and to disregard the information I sent them.

    I hope that I am not a victim of identitiy theft because I did not send them any information on my bank account, credit cards, Social Security Number, etc. and I did NOT and will NOT send them money. Comments???

    I intend to disregard and not respond to ANY future correspondence with them.

In this time of economic crisis it is very easy to believe hoping that life be changed, I sent my personal data and ID card, I don’t know what will happen of my personal data, they might make illegal transaction on my behalf?

    I sent to this email: paygentdivision@sify.com a day after a man called in my mobile phone who confirmed the release of my money after I send my identification card for the verification process. The phone number of this person is 00971558523846. Is it true? is the Heineken online email lottery exist? Hope that the authorities make some action.

    Hey people look what I’ve received English version of the mail Louis’ got. Be careful of these people cause the mails seem real. It’s easy to understand that this is a spam though cause the e-mail addresses are either hotmail or something else but real company advisors have e-mail addresses named after their companies. One other thing is I read exactly the same mail I’ve received in somewhere else sent to someone else and the phone numbers do not belong to the Citi Bank of London. Here are the e-mails.

    I´ve got several e-mails by Heineken Light Promotion too. It remains me to several letters nearly 10 years ago with the following content: ” you can help us to transfer some million $ from Nigerian Bank to your account. Send us your personal adress including the name of your Bank and your account. To show us that you are a serious person send us a sum of $ xxxxx.xx. As soon as we recieve your money the transfer will be started. I called this people the “Nigerian Connection”. My advice : do never believe informations like this.

    One thing to note about so-called “lotteries” from outside the U.S. — Federal law prohibits U.S. citizens living in the U.S. from even participating in a foreign lottery, or taking funds from any winnings — even IF the lottery is legitimate. Which it probably isn’t.

  73. O.P.BATRA says:

    it,s purely a fraud but at the same time where are these intelligence bodies of cyber crime are they sleeping or watching this as a fun & such a renowned co like heineken beer is not taking any strigent action these bad elments those who are trying to cheat innocnt people.

  90. Susan says:

    P.S. If you have given them money and have not received your “winnings”, you’re screwed. There is nothing you can do to get the money since it’s not a legit contest. Kiss the money good-bye, and consider it a lesson learned the hard way.

  91. Susan says:

    If it sounds too good to be true, it is. Don’t be fooled.

    If they ask for ANY money (which they “cannot take from your winnings”), it’s a scam. No legitimate contest will ask for money to get your winnings as it is illegal to do so.

    Also, if you didn’t enter a contest, yet you won it, report it to authorities.

    Received this Heineken Light Promotion Notification e-mail too. How do you know it is a scam. Has anyone ever received the cheque. What grounds do you have if you go through with it and do not receive the cheque?
