Protect Yourself and Report the Latest Frauds, Scams, Spams, Fakes, Identify Theft Hacks and Hoaxes
"UK Online Lottery Result Headquarters" is another UK National Lottery Scam. Claiming to be the "online version", the scammer will send you an email from a fictitious person like "Mrs Grace Parker" and tell you to contact another fictitious person "Mr Felix Btown" (their "claims processor" or "fiduciary agent").This pathetic scammer can't even spell a simple name like "brown" correctly. Of course, you cannot win ANY real lottery without buying a ticket. There is no such thing as a "computer draw system" and your email address cannot and will never win any lottery! The names, "Mrs Grace Parker", "Mr Felix Btown", may be different; they keep changing them to con you!
DO NOT reply to any emails you receive that claim you have won a lottery that you did not enter. They are frauds. You will lose your money. There is no "free lunch"; don't be foolish and believe a scam! We can not say it any more plainly: YOU WILL NOT BE NOTIFIED BY EMAIL BY ANY LEGITIMATE LOTTERY THAT YOU WON A PRIZE. If you do receive such an email, it IS a fraud, do not reply to it! If you DID reply to one, click here to see what you will likely receive back.
For your education and entertainment, we have highlighted some of the obvious clues that this is a scam.
