WARNING SIGNS OF A SCAM:
The official lotteries do NOT know who the winners are until they come forward with a winning ticket. The lottery not notify YOU, you will notify them.
The official lotteries NEVER requires the payment of any money in order to claim a prize. No one should ever send any money to pay a ‘processing fee’ or any another requested fee in order to claim a prize.
Never provide any personal or financial information to a scammer, especially phone numbers, national ID details, mobile money details, bank account numbers, and credit card numbers.
If you suspect a scam, report it to our Fraud Unit via our website or mobile app or the Police.
