Lottery Winner Donation Scam



Lottery Winner Donation Scam: How It Works

The scam is trending now in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Regardless of what country or state you live in, here is an ingenious approach that scammers take when it comes to lottery winners. The last few names that the scammers use are Dave Johnson, Mavis Wanczyk, Christy Davis, Michael J Wiersky, as well and Frances & Patrick Connolly. These are all real Powerball winners!

In this article, we will show you how the scam works and how to find out if a profile is fake. Let’s look at two examples first: Cristy Davis and Kelsey Zachow.

In the first case, victims receive emails or Facebook messages like this below:



Hello, this is Cristy Davis the Powerball winner in Michigan on Feb 2/2020. I’m using this time to give out 20 people $50,000,00 to each USA citizen I randomly picked. Watch me on this link  https://youtu.be/qod1Sgxyi6U  get back to my agent with a text  901 699 6836 if you’re really interested to be one of the luckiest man/Woman“. Horrible grammar, but let’s see more.

Take the case of Kelsey Zachow, a real lucky girl who won 66 million dollars.

lottery winner donation

Criminals created fake Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter accounts using her credentials. How did they have them? It was an easy thing to find because lottery winners are featured in the news with their success stories (you know those pictures with 6/49 millionaires holding checks, right?). Crooks use not only 6/49 or Powerball millionaires, but also Publishers Clearing House winners, as well.

Using Kelsey’s full name, the crooks posted a generous promise of donating $1,000 from her winnings to the first 75,000 Instagram followers – see the image above.



Alternatively, the scammers send emails offering the donation (amount varies). In order to do that, they ask the victims for their bank account, in order to transfer the promised money. In exchange, they are required to pay ‘a small tax’ that apparently is needed for international donations.

Needless to say, the ‘lucky’ followers were rather unfortunate for giving their personal information away. However, be aware that scammers may use other names too, such as philanthropists or business people.

Watch the video below to see a different variation of the Lottery Winner Scam exposed:

Potential victims are taking this to social media, exposing the scammers. Here is the last Tweet from user @maelen:

 

Lottery Winner Donation Scam: How to Avoid

Keep in mind that new scammers could copy this scheme and use lottery winners’ names from your region. Be very careful. As a fact, lottery winners are advised on the day of claiming to close their social media accounts temporarily. Not to mention that – within days – they are approached for donations by hundreds of people and various local organizations.

Meanwhile, be careful about all kinds of scams that promise big outcomes such as the Gold IRA Investment Scam, GoingFast.us Scam, and any kind of loan approvals.



 

How To Find Out If a Profile Is Fake

    On Saturday morning I received a befriend from Julie Leach. Saying, she won a lottery of 310.5mil. Since her winnings, she wants to contribute to struggling people. I immediately went to her page, and it verifies her winnings. Also, she is a praying Christan she just wants to bring happiness to more people. I then googled her it also says she’s a winner. Checking back to her FB page, then scrolling there was a list of people holding cash or a check they supposedly received from her. Then it describes she has hired people from FedEx to deliver to you this money. Supposedly she asks if you have WhatsApp or google App that allows you to talk to and see the FedEx person. You are given a number to dial from these apps. What stopped me was, WhatsApp asking you to allow them to have access to your contacts. That stopped me in my tracks. I didn’t go any further. Later I showed it to my daughter, she did her own investigation. 1. Julie Leah knows nothing about this, and her residence is in Michigan. 2. Also, my befriender says they live in NY. 3. Looking further at my scammer, she had a list of people friends that just became her friend, only having one friend. 4. My daughter googled the phone number which was (713) 966-3174 which was given to me by the scammer, it went to a hotel in Texas. All of this investigation you can do yourself. The sad thing the scammer is using real people’s names. Keep your eyes open and heads up.

  4. Here’s the exact text I got. “””Good News,This is Mr&Mrs.Tammy and Cliff Webster the power ball winner of $316.3 million jackpot in Wisconsin jan 5/2022 Congratulations you have randomly picked to win $150,000USD to each USA citizens Me and my wife donating to 50 random individuals if you get this message then your name was selected after a spin ball.

  6. Dave from Brooklyn New York is back it’s July 2022 and I just got an email him trying to send me $30,000. What a scumbag whoever these people are

    1. I got one to from dave johnson saying i was randomly picked to get 30.000 just send the agent 100.00 but they give me the agents name.

  7. I received this text today which I’m sure is a scam. I looked up the names and they are using real people.
    It came up as: telco11@xmegax.com
    Message reads: (used copy/paste)

The cellphone number you received this message is your reference code. Best Wishes*9

  8. I received the fake Michael Weirsky Twitter scam indicting that he was a NJ lottery winner and giving $50,000 to the first 50 followers. Received a text from the “ agent “, Jason Ransom, (501)203- 9139. He stated that I had to purchase $100 from Amazon for the delivery authorization code!

    I had already looked up this scam online. I proceeded to see what amount of money was going to be asked for.

    Be Careful everyone! You know the ole saying “ If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

  9. I have just received a scam text message about a lottery winner who wants to give me $200,000 and I need to call the agent and then give him my phone number. The lottery winner is a Laura Spears a Michigan lottery winner and then the agent is name Frances Baldwin and his number is 708-941-1426. The person text me from this number 713-966-9688. Also there are like Four other numbers

    1. Hi Latisha, my name is Kathy and I got the same scam text. At first I wasn’t sure if it was real so I decided to check it out by acting like I was falling for it. The agent name stated by Laura Spears was Jenkins Clifton and I was supposed to text him my full name and lottery code number. I texted him my name and code. He texted me back wanting my address, age, occupation, m/f, picture, and phone carrier service. Wow, what a way to steal my identity. I texted him back and asked him how I won since I didn’t play the lottery and I only signed up with KY lottery but never actually played. Then I remembered that Laura Spears said that I was somehow picked among lucky winners to receive $200.000 this month from her give away program. The number they texted me was 816-305-0786 and the number they gave me to text them with was 502-501-3605. After I texted them the question I mentioned earlier they never texted me back with an answer. What douchebags!!!

  10. 2 May 2022
    I have bee in touch with “Mike J Weirsky” ovr IG and via video chat. While it looks like him and he is only asking for a 25.00 EBAY card to “release the funds” (according to his accountants and attorneys wishes.) I find it very odd that I have to “pay” a red cent to receive a gift? I have gone so far as to ask for the contact information for both his accountant and his attorney. (Why am I not surprised that that information could not or would not be shared?) Again, if someone is giving anyone something, why is there ANY need to pay for it?????
    Namaste’
    Scot

  11. I am reporting that I too have received a scam text message from a person pretending to be Scott Godfrey. The text included other phone numbers in it of those in the Washington, DC area, 202-246-5799, 202-867-1206, 202-534-0290, and 773-983-7697. I do not know any of these phone numbers nor the people that have them.  
    The text message reads:

I get a call from the shipping office asking for a picture of my drivers license, i said no, ide sign and show id when the cash arrived. this lady called me 5 times . she didnt seem to get it, then she sent me a text saying 1500.00 to send the cash overnight, then 1000.00 for 3 night delivery 500.00 for 7 day delivery, i said im not payong anything send it in the mail and ill give you the 1 dollar stamp. she kept going on that if it gets lost shes not responsible i said fine then i only lose a dollar right? she kept texting me . i stopped and said no im not interested

  13. Whenever you are promised a donation and soon after you have to pay tax or legal fees the whole story is a scam.
    In Nigeria, they have a law that calls this kind of fraud advance fee scam 419. I also advise checking the IP of the sender.
    In case the lottery winner is in the USA and the IP refers to an address in China expect the offer fraudulent.

  14. I just received this message in a group text
    Hello I’m Dave Johnson from Powerball powerplay New York lottery am the powerball winner of $298.3 mega millions jackpot winner I am donating to my people from the states and other countries so you have been picked among those I will be giving $30,000 are you ready to get your get your own winning prize package or not because am not here to force any one to have my money?

  15. I received a newsletter on my phone from these scammers. The lawyer supposedly handling this scam is Rafael H. Quijada. The newsletter was dated 09-40-50. LMAO!!!!!!

    1. He’s still at it. Mine was dated 21-00-51. His first email is pretty convincing (besides the Gmail email address). He even has an almost convincing website. The second stage is where it becomes apparent it’s a scam when you have to pay to receive the check from an off shore bank account through an international private courier.

  16. Joseph K Heaton scam

  19. JOHN TORSTENSON

    I JUST got scammed recently. NOW I am on edge. A woman befriended me on Twitter, said she was a lottery winner, asked if i had credit card debt. I screenshot my debt of $384. She asked for my phone number which i reluctantly gave. She had her SO called financial advisor Jeff text me from number 336-496-1649. Said this is 1000% legit, just show him the statement. I did, he gaveme banking information complete with routing and account number and name on account of CHRISTY DAVIS. I plugged that in and his sent payment. I then AND ONLY then realized…. WAIT…. I am being scammed. I texted him back and said I know this is a scam so forget it. He replied, SORRY I already paid it, now you need to pay back $500 to charity. I refused. I blocked him. NOW i am getting called from my CC company’s fraud dept. I am nervous and do not know what to do now.

  20. A scam revolving recent or fake lottery winner Dave Johnson, has an Instagram account, davejohnson577978, promoting that he will send $30,000 to his first 2,000 followers.
    He’s only requesting that the alleged winner send a payment that coincides with the “account winner” sending different amounts to either receive the payment in shipping day or several.
    Clearly a scam.
    The individual that is impersonating Dave Johnson is also using a cell phone number 1 (619) 404-1253.

    1. I have the same number that’s texting me but a different Instagram account this one is dave_johnson_6668 that’s funny. They not getting my money.

  21. here is a scam email i just received:
    My name is Charles W. Jackson Jr, the mega jackpot winner of $344.6 million on June 01, 2019. I intend to use the winning funds to pursue a variety of passions and make some charitable contributions to humanity.

    1. Henry van Engelen

      I was also scammed by the fake Mr Jackson. He used Watson Spence of Albany as his lawyer and a spanish bank was supposed to pay out the three million dollars. The email address of the lawyer was different from the real address I found later. In spite of the fact that I exposed his actions he continued send me his letters urging me to follow his instructions. I lost $ 1500 in the process. The facebook account of Charles Jackson is also fake and managed by the criminals.

  22. I received a friend request from a David Johnson who won the New York Lottery for 398miilion claiming to be rewarding $100.000

  23. I was hit up on Instagram from Dave Johnson saying I am the lucky recipient of 50000. Is this real or a scam???

  24. I got scammed hard, my whole stimulis check ans more from the lottery winning scam. They will tell you that you were selected. Pay for the delivery fees, and then there is this problem and that problem so the fee costs go up and up then they say they are paying you more for the inconveinance. DO NOT FALL FOR IT LIKE I DID.

    Have a deep feeling this is a scam which is unfortunate and heartless considering I have fallen on rather hard times and this could have really helped me.

  34. Very upset after realizing this is just a scam, I recently started a Go Fund Me page trying to receive the money to finish my last semester in college. So I can begin my career in psychology and start helping troubled kids, teens and young adults. I have also reach out to a few organizations so when I received the email below I was truly hopeful my prayers were answered in abundance. These people should be ashamed of themselves, A chance like this would change my life forever… Don’t be so heartless and tease the less fortunate.
    (Email I received below; they new exactly how to grab my attention and make me believe it was a large donation toward my cause).

    Dear Beneficiary,

    Greetings to you. This is a kind notification that you have been chosen to benefit from my charity project aimed at touching lives and helping those that i can across the world as God has blessed me. My name is Mavis Wanczyk of Chicopee I won the Powerball Jackpot of $758 Million the largest single ticket jackpot in American lottery history on August 23, 2017 and i have voluntarily decided to donate the sum of $200 Million Dollars to charity.

    This donation of $6 Million is made out to you so to enable you strengthen your personal issues and mostly to generously help us extend hands of giving to the less privileged, orphans and charity organizations within your locality.

  36. I was sent this email (see below) in my spam folder….this is definitely SCAM….
    _______________________________________________________________
    _______________________________________________________________

    I (SONIA DAVIES) won a Jackpot of £61Million UK Pounds fortune in Euro Millions Jackpot Lottery in August 2016. After seeking financial advice from my legal counsel with my pastor who advised to donate 10% of our lottery winnings to people as a tithe and thanksgiving. I have now decided to fulfill the promise I made to donate the sum of 500,000 GBP(five Hundred Thousand Great Britain Pounds) each to 10 unknown lucky people as part of my charity project to improve the lives of these lucky individuals from around the world.

    Fortunately, if you receive this automated email transmission which was electronically selected as beneficiary of this giveaway then you are one of the 10 lucky recipients to receive 500,000 GBP(five Hundred Thousand Great Britain Pounds). All you should do is to contact my attorney In-Charge BARRISTER Billy Morgan via E-mail with the following information below for fund release from my paying bank.

    We also thought this was a scam when we won but we stood by ourselves and prayed to God almighty. Please see the link below.

    http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/euromillions-61million-jackpot-winner-just-8549775

    Winner of £61m EuroMillions jackpot was given all-clear on tumour days before http://www.mirror.co.uk

    Doctors gave Sonia, 53, the all-clear following the surgery – so she knew she had to buy a ticket after her good fortune

    Contact my attorney with REF NUMBER: SD/2016/QR919/17

    Good-luck,

  37. Beware of "Davies family charitable trust" email from davies@donation.com. Obvious scam – asks for personal details claiming that the Davies family have picked out certain people to continue to fight cancer. The scammers have also used a picture of (whom I assume to be the real Davies family) the Davies family.

  38. Mary McAnally

    I recently got an email from Thomas Morris saying they want to help people and that good things can happen…. They are telling me they want to donate a large sum of money to me and I’m curious if it’s a scam or not??

  39. I am Rohit
    I am from Kolkata. My Mobile number is "+91-9163666333"

    Today I got a SMS from +91-8468847192. The sender email is bion.mar@yandex.com
    It is said in the SMS that the person is dying of cancer. And he/she have 4.5 million dollar for donation for helping poor people.
