And I was forced to pay about $100 in total, including subscription fees and monthly payment.
No matter how I asked them by E-mail; "How long should I wait?", "I do not know how to confirm.", their answer is always mechanical. These are two types of their answer I got:

---------------------------------------------------------------
Hello.

Thank you for your message to the FreeLotto FAST Helpdesk.

Automatic game entries and automatic prize payment processing are two of the
main features for our FreeLotto FAST subscription service. Because you are a
FAST player it is not necessary to forward a win claim to us. FAST players are
automatically sent their $1 and $5 wins within 60 to 90 days of the win date,
and are contacted by us via regular mail for 1st and 2nd place prizes.

Each FreeLotto results e-mail displays the drawing results for a particular
day, which show how many numbers you matched to the winning numbers. When a
player wins, there is a dollar sign next to the ratio that reads as follows:
3/6 $1. This means that a player matched 3 of 6 numbers, and the prize is $1.

----------------------------------------------------------------

and

----------------------------------------------------------------
Hello.

Thank you for your note to the FreeLotto Helpdesk.

The email you received informs you of the name of some FreeLotto winners to
date and notifies you that you have prizes pending which in fact will be paid
to you upon submission of the winning entry in accordance with the rules of
FreeLotto. You can view our rules at http://www.freelotto.com/Rules.asp .

It further states that you can do so using the convenient F.A.S.T. service and
if you prefer, you can play for free by going to http://www.freelotto.com.

To date FreeLotto has awarded nearly $76 million in prizes to lucky people just
like you. We encourage you to play at FreeLotto.com or if you prefer to use the
convenient F.A.S.T. service.

In any event, your chances of winning and the prizes you can win are identical.

Good luck in FreeLotto.

Sincerely,

FreeLotto Customer Care

After realizing that this was a fraud, I immediately changed my card number, so that they could no longer take my money away.

d**n, Freelotto. Is there any way of really making them pay the money that they have promised?

UPDATE

AUTHOR: Satoshi - (Sweden)

Now Freelotto.com says in their FAQ page:

-------------

Q1. I think I won, how do I collect my prize?
.
.
.
If you receive a notice that says PENDING next to your name it means that you can win that prize pending the submission by you of a winning entry in any future FreeLotto drawing. It does NOT mean that you won a prize.
.
.
---------------

As far as I remember, I did not see this discription before. Now I can see that they are desperately trying to defend themselves. How could someone continually send E-mails with winning "notice" of over $1,000,000, which is in fact just "pending", to people around the world indiscriminately? They are not qualified to any excuse.

Who is this Kevin J. Aronin supposed to be?
Where the h**l is Grand Central Station??
