    Contact the credit card agency and let them know (best if in writing!) that you could be a victim and that you need the numbers changed. Once they hear that, they are then responsible for not taking measures to change cards, etc. Don’t wait, do that right now! The credit bureau also has a service you can buy that will protect you against ID theft, look into that! Please let us know what happens, will you?

    thank you

  22. Praveen Bhargava says:

    I myself am dealing these type of lottery winning prizes scheme not one but at least
    20 of them.I am taking all the SPAM EMAILS linked with these lucrative promises to pay 500000 USD or 1000000 USD in one lottery or other.I am replying all of them promptly and with the details they ask for.
    Now when the stage of asking me to pay 500 USD or 2500 GBP comes I without any hitch ask them to deduct it from the winning amount and send me the balance through telegraphic bank wire transfer channel.
    I take it sportingly. Now I am sure in all the 100% cases I am dealing with them (20 cases at present)they will in no case be agree to accept my scheme to first deduct all the expenses /charges etc. at your place and only then after making you satisfied with deduction of all type of expenses out of my winning prize money then the remaining lottory prize money be send/Transfer to my Savings Bank Account at my placethrough telegraphic bank wire transfer channel.
    I am a bit crazy and useing my spare time to go in deep into their dirty network.
    I do not know what is finally stored for me in involving me so deep into it.In few of the present 20 cases after my flat refusal to first pay the charges of 500-2500 USD or GBP no reply is coming from them.
    I ask all the effected persons with this type of luxury imaginative dreams to become BillGates overnight,to fight this bad evil with courage and defeat their goal with the grace of Almighty God.
    REMEMBER
    ONE CAN WIN LOTTERY ONLY BY PURCHASING TICKETS
    NOT BY SITTING ACCROSS THE COMPUTER WINDOW

  23. VICTORIA says:

    Just want to thank you guys for this..i just receive same email like this,just yesterday..but now i know this is a big joke and scam. so no more replying anymore..

    although ive sent already my contact i mean..name add..etc..we should be careful next time..

  24. prakash ganta says:

    i receved a mail from yahoo / MSN Lottery promotions that i win the amount of GBP 750,000 and the bank name is barclay commercial bank of london.
    so please conform me that mail was true or false.

  25. Sophie says:

    When I 1st got one of these emails, I thought my dream had all come true. I was so excited I when out and told my friend and family and I replied to their email. Then they stared to ask for money, ( money I didnt have to start with). I paid the 1st lot of money, thinking I would receive my 1.5 million but no, all I got was excuses and demands for more money. Thats when red flags when up and thats when I talked to my bank manager. He saved me from making a terrible mistake. Thank you Paul.

    How can these people be so evil. You cant player with peoples feelings like this. You build up peoples hopes, then you steal their money and leave them with nothing. That is just down right nasty. I believe in what goes around, comes around and you will get your.
    There must be someone, someplace or something we can go to, to fight these people. Dont tell me to delete them because they keep sending them.
    Thank you for letting me vent feelings on your page.

    i have responded to this stupid scam! i never should have gave my info! but i wasn’t thinking clearly as i just got home from work when i opened it. all the people that got this spoof should all get attorney’s and counter this problem. thats the only way they are gonna learn. i am thinking of getting one already. we should all sue them and make them pay for real.
    i will have to delete all my email adresses from now on if this is a scam.

  39. enceng says:

    saat ini sejak pertengahan bulan saya mengalami hal yang sama. dapat e-mail. yang serupa. dan dipertengahanbulan ini lebih dari 10 email dengan alamat berbeda tapi tujuannya sama masuk kealamat e-mail saya. Bahkan dalam kurun tidak lebih satu bulan ada 3 hadiah yang ditujukan buat saya antara lain yahoo promo, bmw promo dan honda promo. yang saya tidak mengerti mengapa mereka bisa menyadap no email saya. kalau memang ada lotere semacam itu. terutama dari yahoo buatlah prosedural sistem yang sekiranya bisa menyempitkan pergerakan orang yang tidak bertanggung jawab.

  40. Khmer Lee says:

    They sent me an email with attachments..at first i was so amazed about it..imagined the 820,000.00 GBP to be claimed in the NedBank of South Africa? The most prominent evidence is the word (eight hundred and twenty British pounds only)

    I’ve recieved 4 email s from a [email protected] to say that I had won a Yahoo Internet Lottery ffor 320,000 British Pounds followed by a phone call by someone who couldn’t speak English properly. The first email had graphics etc which made it look genuine. I was stupid enough to repond. and give a scanned passpo. I am now looking at a printed copy of the bank cheque from the Royal Bank of Scotland. I am supposed to contact a local person to pay $5,000 to who will organise a courier to drop off the consignment. Lucky I did some research and realised that these a leeches who are invading honest lives. I agree….MAY GOD PUNISH THEM ALL.

    First, they ask for personal dates: Full name, telephone, ex. Naturaly , if one don’t have nothing for lose, submit dates. After, come other e-mail: it tell that contact other agent. Telephones of agente or Director of remittance uses reals indicatives of United Kingdow or Sudáfrica:: +27 ó +44 70 . Also, it tell, they need drivers license or passport copy for identification. CURIOUS FORWARD THE PROCESS: they don’t require passport again, it is a lie! . Forward the process, the agent orders to fills an formulary: “WIFE TRANSFER”. Until this, all seems real. I gave my dates, and they don’t stole nothing of my account. But, here follows the good: In the authorization of Ministry of Finance or Republic Bank of your country, it demands approval fees of $USD 879.90. I ask to acquaintances, and they says that for money order don’t charge this sum large! Besides if it is real, because they don’t deduce from prize the TAX or approval fees? . In fact, it is swindler’s net good elaborated!

    We received a similar mail and were about to fall for it. Luckily happened to search the net for such schemes (scams). In our case the perpetrator went one step ahead and sent an Identification of Card of someone claiming to be yahoo international lottery agent to lend credibility… In fact we made a couple of calls to the given number also……

  65. leigh says:

    I have received one and thank yahoomail a lot since the message that I received was filtered in my Scam mail. I was a bit curious so I read the whole page and browsed through yahoo web of the person involved. Thanks, I found myself here with the rest of us…

  77. RAVI PRAKASH SHARMA says:

    I have received the mail from yahoo internet lottery division on7/01/08.The payment consists of 800000GB# and the payment number is GB 30922 AND THE AMOUMT WOULD BE PAID THROUGH the “UNITED EUROPEAN BANK”,LONDON.I have been asked to furnish the details of my particulars in a form.

  78. Christopher Wilson says:

    I got between one and three winning notifications out of four draws one lotto said they had each month, and got winning notices from at least five lottos in the past year. Some had sentence word choices that looked retarded. Do you think they think Interpol can’t find their email addresses and names? They put them on the award notices with phone numbers, if their scam is illegal, police should have no trouble calling them or sending them an email the same day they are noticed or reported.

  79. Albu Maria says:

  80. RCT says:

    I just read all fraud information about Yahoo Internet Lottery in this Google search!! Right now, I will also stop to contact to those people who are contacting me to steal my money!! I was almost believing them if I did not try to check about it by google search!! Thanks for all the people who wrote such suggestion!
    They wrote me there in my yahoomail: I won the Price of One Million Pound!!!
    At first when I read it,I thought I was going to be a little small BILL GATES!!!!
    But who trust now!!!
    Be careful anyone to send money for such case!!!!
    RCT.

  81. Jewel Joanna S. Cabardo says:

    I have actually watched a special feature on the Oprah Winfrey Show about it. The minute I received the email, I large part of me knew this was what the show was talking about especially since they used a country in Africa as a classic bank reference.
    Anyway, I jus checked it out for myself since the information they were asking seemed to be harmless.
    Upon receiving the second notice by email, I knew it really was a fraud. At first I thought of course how could Yahoo and Hotmail know about your whereabouts since you just filled up limited information to have an email account with them. I thought of it as their way of confirming your personal information. I was right, this is a hoax.
    Here is a copy of their second email.

    I received a simillar letter saying I won 800,000 British Pounds for November Yahoo Internet Lottery Promotions.
    What saved me was that I made inquiries about the Lottery through Google search engine.
    Thank you for providing these informations about these cyber thieves.

  86. Pumlani says:

    Me too, I just won the lottery twice in one week and more than 10 times in 3 months!!! I won different lotteries such as Bill Gates!!! This happened after I had problems with spyware Virtumonde Trojan! But I manged to fix it! Surely you can’t win a competition you didn’t enter. This is a scam!

  87. Rev PC Lalropuia says:

    I received this kind of offer time to time. Anyway, knowing these are not real I steel love to play with them and respond them as if i am really interested on it. Making money is not easy..using money is easy..believing an offer of huge amount of money is not easy..believing an offer of prayer is most acceptable…

  88. Sablicious says:

    I received something very similar myself in my Hotmail account… maybe even more legit-looking! It stated I’d won 600,000 British Pounds! The curious thing was I didn’t even get a peep to this effect at my Yahoo account… the very account the prize was being attributed too! XD

    Not me!
