chixsy asked in Games & RecreationGambling · 1 decade ago this true?

my brother have been receiving a lot of emails from freelotto telling him that he is one of the pending winners of $1,000,000. it says we need to claim it by the 26th of dec, the 30th, and now the 2nd of jan. the email even contain names of people who have allegedly won this price money and some "erik prevost" who won $10,000,000. there's an instruction in the email on how to claim the said price and from there, we're asked to enter personal info's and credit card info's and then we found out that we also need to pay $9.95 for some service fee or something...i really don't want to believe it although this emails seem really true. most of the winners that are listed in their emails and in their website is from the USA so i guess im curious whether people from the US knows anybody who have won with this thing....

    They said you won One million, ten thousand and three hundred. Free Lotto has also started a new scam that they claim they are the distributors of the winnings and sellers of legitimate lottery tickets. They are claiming a prize of one hundred and nine-five million dollars. There is no TSN number or C V V code it is part of the scam. Free Lotto is a credit card scam run by a criminal group called PlasmaNet from a P.O. box at Grand Central Station in N.Y. I am a retired Police Officer that as a hobby investigates Internet fraud. Free Lotto is one of the biggest scams. Go to and enter the search words Free Lotto and you will find hundreds that have been taken in. Internet Survey companies are the biggest source of scammers getting your email address. Free Lotto sells your email address to other scammers so be aware, you will, in all probability, have more scams come across your computer screen. Free Lotto, once they have your credit card information draws anywhere from $9.95 to $20.00 a month from your account. You must notify your bank in person immediatly. The checks that have come to winners from Free Lotto are in the $00.18 (18 cents) to no more than $1.00 (one dollar) range and they are drawn on accounts that don't exist. Bouncers. If you have been a victim, as many have, your local FBI Office will have an email address that you can forward the offending email to. Call your local office and ask for the address. Tell them if you are a victim or not. The Federal Communications Commission also has an investigative arm that you may forward the complaint to. Here is the Name, address and phone of the crook that runs Free Lotto. I suggest those that have been taken, is give him a call. Kevin J. Aronin, 20 Echo Bay Place, New Rochelle N.Y. (914) 654-8900. He may have changed his number by now because I have advised many that have contacted me to call him. Many complaints have gone to the Attorney General of New York but they have found no reason as yet to investigate. There are hundreds that have had their accounts stolen from even after they have "Unsubscribed" from Free Lotto so I find it curious that law enforcement has done nothing on this scam. Just be aware. I have read many of the questions on this site on lotteries and every one I have seen here is a scam. There is no free lunch, there is no "Pie in the Sky" but what there is are a lot of crooks that are very smart on the computer, but as a whole stupid on the scams they run. They play to the victims greed and the something for nothing that baits many in. Use common sense. I suggest that those that have been taken in by Free Lotto advise the I.R.S. of Income Tax fraud by Mr. Aronin. The I.R.S. will make his life more miserable than the FBI can. The FBI can jail him but the IRS will hound him for the rest of his life, in fact, even after he is dead they will hound him
