Spanish Rip Off Lottery Scam

AUTHOR: Rohit - (Australia)

Dear Sir,


Please note that I had been an unfortunate victim of a very big lottery scam that originated from Madrid in Spain.

I received a letter on the 30/11/04 through normal mail from Madrid, Spain claiming that I had been one of the lucky winners of a major lottery draw for which the results were released accordingly on 20/09/04. To convince me with the trap and to believe the information they submitted me, they had a declaration form attached with the covering letter for me to give my bank details so they can immediately transfer my winning money. In the letter it also stated that after receiving this letter I'm suppose to give the operation Manager a call in Spain who will transfer my money to the required designation.

I gave the Operation Manager a call in Spain and he introduces himself as the identity of the person specified in the letter. Firstly he congratulated me then thoroughly explained me how I had been selected as a winner among the other 25,000 selected participants throughout the world. He seriously had those strong convincing powers that lured both me and my Mrs to believe with his information. He strongly recommended me to send my bank details so that the money could be immediately transferred to the respective beneficiary that was me. I asked him on several occasions as to how I won the lottery and he told me the computer selected me randomly and I must have purchased a Spanish product in my country. Then to further induce me he told me to give a call to the lottery company and speak to the vice president and then confirm your price because he was just an agent looking after my money. I rang to the Vice President and somebody by the name Antonio introduced himself as being the secretary to the vice president. I explained him the situation and he told me to wait for a while until he grabs my file and then he looks in the computer to confirm my prize.

After this confirmation he urges me to deal with my agent for the processing of the prize.

After faxing all the required particulars to him then the agent gave me call early in the morning at 6.00am Australian time on 1/12/04 and told me that he has received my fax and in order to finalise my claim he needs my identity and well as $2080 euro dollars which is $3808.14 in Australian dollars. He convinced me that he needed this money because I am not a Spanish citizen and in order to transfer such a large sum of money they needed a government clearance. Later me and my wife we both spoke to the vice president of the lottery club to confirm whether we should be actually paying for the clearance and he told us that's one of the major requirements in order to transfer the fund and they also promised us that after this I wont be paying any extra money. I sent them the required amount through Western union on 1/12/04 which they received on the same day. I gave them a call to confirm if they have received my money. They told us that the money is now with the bank and the bank will contact me within 7 hours. On 2/12/02 an officer who identified himself as Loius and also gave me his bank name and number and asked me that for telegraphic transfer I have to give them $6567.00 euro dollars which is part of the bank commission. This was the only time I became suspicious that to transfer my own money how can the bank charge me so much money, Later they reduced the amount which made me believe that we were falling in a serious trap.

Later I rang to several authorities in Australia which included the Spanish Counsellor, Police in Spain and Melbourne, Westpac international bank services, Fraud investigation Department in Melbourne that could assist me with this major issue.I also rang the agent for them to return my money back to me which I doubt. They still speak to me over the phone and if for investigation purposes if I had to call them I can do that.

I shall be grateful if my case is studied deeply and investigated and my money is refunded to me. My main concern is to punish those criminals who are misleading the public and putting our life in such a stress and ripping the public off financially.

If nothing is done and these criminals are set free then in the near future they'll set up another scam more disasterous. I hope any of the authorities could help me out with this issue and the public is also made fully aware not to fall in a trap like we did.

Grateful if the above matter is resolved as soon as possible so that we are able to get our money back.
