Lottery Scams

Avoid the Lotto Scams, email scams, avoid any scam for that matter.

Scammers always try to trick you into thinking you've won.

  1. Global lottery Secrets does NOT RUN OR OWN ANY Lotteries or sell Lottery Tickets. We only refer you to official companies that do.
  2. Don't ever pay any money to anyone who claims you've won a lottery.
  3. Don't ever give your details to someone who contacts you unexpectedly for whatever reason.
  4. Don't click on links in unsolicited emails, even if they use a real company's name or logo (scammers will even use OUR logo and pretend to be Global Lottery Secrets).
  5. If you (or your syndicate) didn't buy a lottery ticket/s, there's no chance you've won anything.
  6. If you fall prey to the scammers, THEY are the only winners. DON'T LET THEM WIN!

Types of Scams

The scammers will use different ways of trying on the scam. They use Telephone, letter and email scams in many different ways.

They will use logos in letters and emails that look like real professional companies, (we have even had our logos ripped and used in emails). Emails will even look like they have been sent from legitimate email addresses.

The advance fee scam is still used a lot where they ask for a fee to release your much bigger prize money. COMPLETE AND UTTER BS! No lottery company EVER asks for a fee to release prizes.

Don't click on links in emails, especially ones that are supposed to come from your bank, they usually lead to a Spoof Scam website and believe me, they make them look like the real McCoy and suck people in and get all their financial details, logins,passwords and the cash.

Always type in web links in your browser and be careful with passwords. You can even get a password manager if you have a lot of them. I use one called RoboForm, best password and login manager I have ever used.
