I have just recieved an email as of (october 23/06) from this company:
Kevin J. Aronin/PlasmaNet Inc./FreeLotto.com
This was the link provided in the email for me to use my credit card to purchase a subsciption to FreeLotto.com and for appropriate prize distrubution.
obviously once I realized I had to enter my credit card number I knew something wasnt right.
however the email is very convicing. Apparently it comes from sender (please reply before october 26/06) The subject is (Please Do NOT Delete - Important Account Information)
It states very clearly that I have won 1 million dollars:
Eligibility Requirement: Complete the Payment Directive Form on the following page. Upon submission of a winning entry in accordance with the rules of FreeLotto, it assures you that using the convenient F.A.S.T. service, [removed name] and only [removed name] will be paid $1 Million dollars in the Classic FreeLotto Game or any other cash that you shall be entitled to. Note that untimely response may result in forfeiture.
Also, on the chart note that it states that I have active pending payouts, and the total of these payouts equal to $1,050,300
I have the email saved to my HDD, if anyone stumbles upon this email do not respond and definitally do not give them your money or credit information.
I am wondering if there is any legal action that can be taken here, this email falsely claims that I have won 1 Million Dollars and even has my full name on it. It is signed by Kevin J. Aronin: Chairman & CEO.
So what's the deal? This is still happening to people? Why hasn't this been stopped?
