These and similar mails are received by millions daily from all over the world. According to the FBI International con artists use lottery scams such as this to defraud Americans out of more than $120 million a year.

Further,Federal law prohibits the cross-border sale or purchase of lottery tickets by phone or mail.

Foreign lottery scam artists will drain your bank account or steal the money you sent to pay for the tickets, duties, and taxes.

The FBI website is giving valuable info regarding these scams and how it can be stopped in that for example the FBI partnered with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and others to identify, disrupt, and dismantle organizations perpetrating these schemes, to seize the proceeds of their operations, and to return stolen money to victims.

Thanks to these partnerships, a Canadian man was sentenced to 78 months in a U.S. prison on July 17 after pleading guilty to racketeering, mail and wire fraud, and conspiracy for his role in a lottery scheme that stole more than $8 million from elderly widows and widowers in the U.S.

Further, according to FBI advice "Don't respond to calls, e-mails, or mailings promoting foreign lotteries. If you think you've been victimized by one of these scams, report it to your local FBI office. Or, if you were scammed online, file a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center, a partnership between the FBI and the National White Collar Crime Center".

You better of buying state lottery tickets were you have more luck to win than ever seeing any winnings from these cons.

In my state a lot of Banks and Western Union warn costumers by posting warnings regarding these and other schemes including Nigerian letter fraud at every counter with contact info.

Even our local Newspaper had several write ups with local law enforcement warnings and info. That in itself should WARN people.
