  4. Nicki says:

    I received a very similar letter and like CJ said it looked fake with the ‘clip art’ and all.

    I like everyone am surprised cause I didn’t play so how did they get me home address all the way here in the Caribbean (Trinidad to be exact)

    This isn’t funny cause some people can be experiencing financial difficulty and playing with their emotions or trying to rob them of their money is just cruel.

  5. Jean-Maurice Thauvette says:

    My husband just received a letter from La Primitiva Agencia de Espana for a winning of Sven Hundred and eigty five thousand five hundre and ten euros. Sure looks genuine and my husband could easily have been led astray but I decided to check on the internet and was very happy to find these comments. Always said that if something is to good to be true; it is not true. Let”s all be aware and careful of scammers.

  6. Tina says:

    Hello! I am from Finland too! Today I received this letter. It was same, but they claimed they got my name from my plane ticket number! Be ware! I was just in journey and somehow they got my homeaddress… By the way my winningprice was 785.510 € (!)

    In my letter they wrote:
    “Participants was selected from city councils, airlines offices and the private sectors around the world trough a computer ballot system drawn from 1,000 000 names from around the world as part of our promotion programme which we conducted, to promot tourism.”

  7. pate says:

    I got a letter where it says that I have won 785.510 € I live in Finland, how they can get my address. Does this letter to be taken seriously?

  8. J.S. says:

    Received letter today re: Loteria Primitiva ,Award Notification for 985,950,00 euro’s. Very official looking, but obviously a scam. They wanted me to contact the claim agent immediately, a MR EMMANUEL JOHNSON foreign service manager on 0034 634 035 103 ect and send I.D.
    The envelope which was bought from Tesco’s, was hand written, and sent with a second class stamp from Royal Mail Birmingham Mail Centre at 01:46 20:03:2010. What sad people. Went straight in the bin.

  9. T. T says:

    I too, received a letter, and shocked to know that they had my address as I only just recently moved to Australia. I am not even registered on the Phone Directory, so how they knew the address really mad me see red.

    No one receives nothing if they didn’t buy a ticket as the saying goes, you get nothing for doing nothing. These people should get a real job and leave those alone who are trying to make ends meet the proper way. Keep away from scams like these. I threw my letter in the rubbish without a second thought. You should too.

  10. clare says:

    i just received the same letter lucky for me I have learned a lesson after being ripped off on a similar scam not long ago and lost $2000. These people need to be stopped there is such thing as karma so just they watch they may have the time of their lives now but they wont go far!!.i hope they choke on the money they scammed off people!!

  13. Nir F - Isarel says:

    Apparently they continue sending these letters.
    I just got a letter from them saying i won 950K euro and that i have to claim in in one month otherwise it will be cancled (“will be returned as unclaimed”)
    i wonder if they change the name of the contact agent.

    “To begin your lottery claim, please contact your claims agent SNR. ALFRED ALFONSO. Foreign operation manager, GLOBAL LINK SECURITY S.A on TEL N:+34-648-820-561 and FAX N : +34-917-903-799, +34-911-414-236.”

    if they change the contact person too often it might be a warning sign.

  22. CJ says:

    Yeah, I got a letter from them with crappy clip art on it. They can afford to send me 950,000 euros but they can’t hire an artist to design their letterhead. It’s amazing anyone would fall for that.

  23. C Atutahi on 11th, December,2009 says:

    I got one too from Madrid, Spain. Dated October 28th. Postage stamp reads Darwin and Portugal.
    For 950,000 euros.
    Thank you for helping me stay away from this nightmare!

  28. Bienne says:

    I received a letter too from La Primitiva Foundation promotion that I won 950,000.00 euros, wining the lottery in the 3rd category.
    I checked the website but could not find it or access it. It looks pretty scary and unprofessional.

    When I did my search online, I have found all these people here experiencing the same thing as I do. I believe therefore it is not spam or phishing letter, aiming at deceiving people for money if we are greedy for money and believe their lie.

    Thanks for others helping us to see it through, lest we might be taken in.

    I got the letter to me written on 28th of October, 2009, with reference no: )J8792275 The place was posted from Mardrid Spain.

  29. Lesila Fukofuka says:

    I received a letter from LA Primitival Foundation Promotions that I won 950 000 euros , 3rd Prize, I called the number that was on this letter and this Gentleman anwered the phone calmly….I am shocked that people do this to their own kind…I feel sickening that people wants money from their own kinds in such a way.. They should make known for the benefit of others.

  30. GRIVARD says:

    My mother lives in Windsor Ontario and she also just received a letter from la primitiva lottery in Spain. The letter appear like a legal document and says that she won 950 000 euros and to send a copy of her ID and bank account #.

  32. Barbara W. Littlejohn says:

    I received a letter from the La Primitivia Lotteria and it stated that I had won a lottery that was held on July 22nd 2009. I really wantede to believe it. I recently was a victim of scammers. I wish I had known what I know now. My sister and my husband tried to tell me, but I didn’t listen. I am now without any money, and we a going to be struggling for a while. But it is okay because we know God will see us through. There is a purpose for everything that God allows His children to go through. I would tell anyone that wants something like this to be true, search the “Truth”. God will not steer you wrong.

  33. Deepak says:

  38. Celina J. Pinto says:

    I got emails from Britain, offering 500,000 GB pounds, equivalent to about 750,000 USD. At first I was almost sure it was a scam but as more elaborate emails came in I was more and more inclined to bite. I guess I was lucky to have been so broke I couldn’t send them the approximately 750 dollars that would cover their courier expenses.

  39. Hilde Marie Zuschneid says:

    Ich habe von LA PRIMITIVA PROGRAMM eine Email bekommen, day ich 733.105.85 Euro gewonnen habe. Ich sollte meine ganzen Daten , Kontonummern,und Ausweis-Dokumente Copien faxen. Habe ich gemacht. Heute hat ich Probleme mit meinem Laptop. Dateien waren weg usw. Was kann ich machen, day nicht weitere Schäden auftreten?
    Wer kann mir helfen?

  40. Sara says:

    I received one such letter today, from “La Primitiva Intl” and it was only franked two days ago in Spain, God knows how it arrived so fast through our letter box. Maybe Superman delivered it?? Or helicopter courier? Things like this put me in a red-eyed fire-spitting rage. There are so many people out there who are in need of money, who might fall for a scam like this. I really, sincerely hope the senders of this letter will get the punishment they deserve. I hope they get gangrene of the gonads.

    They are running these things out in color on cheap, thin paper, and when I investigated the letter online, it seems that there are billions of them in circulation.

    These people need to be caught by Interpol or some government body in Spain. I phoned Mid Sussex District Council today and reported it. They say that they can keep a note of who is receiving thse letters in our area, but really the Spanish authorities have to be told as well. I have no idea who to contact in Spain. This makes me EVEN MORE ANGRY!!!!

    I might put a copy of the letter on the notice board at work with SCAM written across it, so that everyone can be made aware of it. But a whole weekend will have gone by first, so someone, somewhere, might get caught out in the meantime.

    Die scammer, die.

  41. kel says:

    i just friggin got one, and im pissed off. These idiots need to be punished. I have a letter right here probably with the scammer’s fingerprints on. i have a good mind to track them down and rob their office(which will be a grotty little bedroom somewhere). They ought to be careful they don’t know who they are messing with.

  42. Steve says:

    Yep, just received one by post today, apparently won 615.810E…. NOT!

    Wish we could Sting them.

    I’ll be sending the letter to the appropriate authorities but whether anything happens is another matter.

  43. davudus says:

    Hey, i also receive this simmilar message and i send them back and write that i want 5 million dollars :)

  44. Lynne says:

    Heh, I received a very similar letter just recently, too. I’m glad people are so vigilant about reporting scams like this – it means that anyone who takes a moment to google things like this will have no problems!!

    Thanks guys – please keep reporting nasty people like this – there are still people being sucked into these obviously, or the scammers wouldn’t bother.

  45. Dale says:

    hei there

    just about got sucked in! it pays to check on the website Phishing Blog to know that this La Primitiva Lottery Board in Spain is a hoax… dont be fooled… always GOOGLE the place. If you didnt buy a ticket, you didnt win…

    be safe people… love n light…

  46. IQBAL BUTT says:


  47. evie says:

    These vexers are collecting addresses from the telephone directory. Now, they changed their manners a little bit. They want 10% of the prize. But they will ask about 15oo euros, and your bank datas, and a copy of your ID or your passport in advance. Do not send it!

  48. Muhammad Yoserizal says:

    I after receipt the letter like this !
