Playing Online Lotteries – Important Tips:

Make sure that the online lottery site is secure:

Look for the lock! Websites that are secure will have a small symbol of a padlock obviously displayed - this indicates that your personal information will be safe. If you don’t see that symbol of safety and security, hit the back button immediately and do not enter any private information!

Always check the requirements of the online lottery site:

If there is a requirement that you must be at least 18 years old to play, (which there probably will be) then don’t sign up if you are under that specified age. You will need to prove your age to claim a prize.

Check to see if the lottery site will charge a fee on your winnings:

A legitimate, honest online lottery site will not impose fees on your winnings.

Does the online lottery ticket vendor display contact details?

If a website is untrustworthy about offering up their contact details and other information, there is probably a reason and it is likely to be one that doesn’t count in your favor. Make sure there is adequate contact information.

Only play lotteries online from your own home computer:

Just a note About #LotteryStrategies

Finding and playing lucky numbers is based on fun more than facts.  Mathematically, every number has an equal chance of being chosen as a winner.

Remember –

Previous results have no bearing on future ones.

The key to successful lotto number selection methods are playing the probabilities.

If you play a pattern that occurs only five percent of the time, you can expect that pattern to lose 95 percent of the time, giving you no chance to win 95 percent of the time. So, don't buck the probabilities.

Lottery numbers are randomly drawn. But randomly drawn numbers form patterns that can be tracked and used to your advantage.

Is the Brazil Quina a Scam?

Absolutely not! The Brazil Quina was launched in in 1994, an is still going strong over 26 years later.

Unfortunately, fake wins with other institutions have become a regular occurrence – Scammers are getting increasingly sophisticated in their attempts to get your money or personal details. Be alert and protect yourself from being scammed by following our tips.   

Most important and Step 1 – If you think you have provided your bank account or credit card details to a scammer, contact your bank or financial institution immediately.

A lottery scam is an attempt to fraudulently extract money from someone by pretending to be a legitimate lottery company or winning player. It has sadly become a too common method of deception as such scams prey on people’s desire to win money and the popularity of big lottery games.

Did you receive a notification that you have won a prize in a lottery? Perhaps the Microsoft Lottery? If so, don’t get too enthusiastic as this is almost certainly a scam.  Players need to find the winning numbers in a newspaper, the internet, or on TV and compare them to their ticket. 

Win notices from foreign lotteries are even more suspicious. Not only do foreign lotteries have the same restriction as domestic lotteries, but it is also illegal to sell tickets for foreign lotteries across international borders.

Therefore, unless a player actually was in a foreign country and bought a lottery ticket, foreign lottery notifications are frauds.

Only buy tickets from authorized lottery retailers.

Offers to sell international lottery tickets by mail or online are usually illegal.

If you didn't buy a lottery ticket or participate in a second-chance lottery game, you didn't win no matter how convincing a text message may sound.

The lottery doesn't notify players when you win; players alone are responsible for checking your winning tickets.

Players are NEVER required to pay money up-front to receive a winning lottery prize.

lottery scam is a type of advance-fee fraud which begins with an unexpected email notification, phone call, or mailing (sometimes including a large check) explaining that “You have won!” a large sum of money in a lottery.

What to do:

If you receive a letter or email claiming that you won a prize for the Brazil Quina Lotto but did not enter, it is strongly recommended that you:

Delete or destroy the letter or email immediately.

Do not open any link contained in a suspicious email.

Do not respond to, or contact, the sender.

Do not disclose any personal or financial information.

Do not send any money.

If you have already responded, break off contact with the fraudster immediately.

If you have provided personal or financial details, alert your bank immediately.

If you receive a suspicious email, or believe you have been the victim of internet fraud, report it to the police.

Important!

If players feel that their computer or device has been hacked or infected with malware or ransomware, run a virus check immediately!

If players suspect one of your online accounts (e.g. your bank account, email, online shopping account or social networking site) has been compromised, change passwords immediately. Most reputable websites provide step-by-step instructions for how players can recover a hacked account.

Clues to look for:

The email is sent from a free webmail address (e.g. @hotmail.com, @yahoo.com, @gmail etc.)

The letter or email starts with something vague like ‘Dear Winner’.

Scam letters are often on poor quality, photocopied letterhead (although some will include a genuine business address in an attempt to provide legitimacy).

Strict time limit to claim the ‘prize’. This is intended to put the potential victim under pressure and deter them from seeking advice or investigating the matter further.

Confidentiality is often demanded as a ‘condition of winning’. Again, this is to deter the recipient from seeking the advice of friends or family who may be more familiar with this type of scam.

Poor spelling, grammar and syntax are usually a good indication that the letter or email is a scam.

Scammers will often try to take advantage when you’re feeling vulnerable and try to extract more money from you through a follow up scam.  A common follow up scams includes:  Offers from a law enforcement agency to investigate your scam and retrieve your money for a fee. Law enforcement agencies do not charge for their services

Lottery Scams don’t only come by mail, email or phone call either –

SMS – text message

Text messages often contain vague messages of congratulations coupled with an impressive dollar amount of winnings and a link or email address to contact and collect. The Text messages will be brief but dangerous because those active links and email addresses can result in engagement and entrapment in the blink of an eye! Links sent can open malware and spyware to be loaded onto devices. Smaller screens on phones and devices make fraudulent websites more difficult to spot.

Tip!  Make Sure Your Internet Connection is Secure. Use a Secure VPN Connection!

In person

Unbelievable – yet true! Perhaps the most brazen of attempts at a lottery scam is the in-person attempt, preying on the goodwill of people. The most vulnerable of the population such as the elderly are often targeted. A scammer will pose as an illegal immigrant claiming to have a winning lottery ticket, but that only citizens of the country can claim it. If the victim will hand over cash as collateral, they are sent to claim the winnings on the scammer’s behalf in exchange for a portion of the winnings. Sometimes scammers work in teams to provide a willing helper to convince the victim it’s a good idea. Of course, the ticket is not a winner, and the scammers quickly leave with the money obtained.

Cyber safety tips for sr. Citizens

Make sure your computer has security software on it and also check that the auto-update feature.

Passwords need to be unique and strong -Never reveal your password to anyone. Passwords are an excellent guarantee of safety and security online.

Understand how privacy settings work on social networks.

Never respond – or even open an e-mail with a deal that is too good to be true.

Never believe that someone you don’t know is going to give you money.

Do not believe a person from another country who just needs you to “help transfer funds” and need your bank account number to do so.

If you never entered a lottery, you can't win the lottery.

Don’t believe a really rich, famous person just wants to help you out and mysteriously needs your address, phone number, bank account information to do so.

Don’t automatically install free software – these types of software are generally riddled with spyware.

Attachments can contain a virus

Never trust a link sent to you by someone you don’t know.

Never trust an e-mail that asks for your personal or account information.

Joining a lottery “club” will not improve your chances of winning foreign lotteries although Con artists will claim that pooling your money with other people means you can buy more tickets and have more chances to win.

The biggest note to remember – It’s impossible to win a lottery without buying a ticket and never share your banking or personal details with anyone!

The chances of recovering money from foreign crooks may be even worse than that of actually winning a lottery. Most lottery scams are executed by con artists in other countries, sometimes using U.S. addresses to disguise their real locations. Differences in legal systems, difficulties of conducting investigations in other countries, and expenses involved in pursuing cross-border fraud make the chances of getting your money back very, very slim to none.
