    Hi frens, more than a month ago I subscribe with d above 4 a fee of euros 9.90 monthly in order to place a bet.Done thro internet.Dis free Lotto NL is based in Rotterdam,Netherland. D stakes r (1)10,000/ euros - fast cash, (2)1,000,000/ euros give away , (3)10,000,000/ euros superbuck.
    Very recently I was declared a winner of(1).Lotto NL requested me to submit my particulars to their paying bank in Netherland in order for them (d bank) to send me the winning stake. So...I was expecting to receive a foreign draft or a cheque from d bank. Instead I received n instructions from d bank to open an a/c there.They r 2 send me necessary forms to facilitate d proccess of opening an a/c & 2 return 2 them with minimum deposit.
    This is d catch where I suspect d mode of d scam. I part with my money however minimum is & dats the end if it. I email them my suspicion of d whole affair & contrarily if its genuine I requested them 2 just send me either a foreign draft & a cheque. Almost 2 weeks have gone & they r complete silent now.Of coarse I did not send them any money.Infact I've already canceled my subsricption immediately.

    No one gives out free money like that. Its definitely a scam. Be wary of such things.

    Take Special Note: The examples below, while promoting the fact that you have won a lottery, are sent predominantly by email and represent a consumer targeted version of the Nigerian Advance Fee Fraud which usually targets businesses and religious organizations.
    The Nigerian scammers running this operation find that collectively seeking an average victim loss of about $1500 from individuals is easier and quicker than the average $10,000 they regularly take from businessmen who are offered a percentage of millions of dollars for their assistance in transferring funds overseas.
    The various sweepstakes lottery names such as El Gordo Netherlands, Oy Keikkaus Netherlands, Algemene Loterij, Werken Bij Delotto and the Star Johannesburg all use roughly the same address, presumably either a mail drop or fictitious, of Burdenstraat 21B which they suggest exists in both Amsterdam and Rotterdam as well as in South Africa.
    Note: The names of some reputable and valid lotteries have been misused by the scammers.

    This is an interesting scam, if its one... smells like one...

    They make money from the monthly fee, and once in a while they pick a "winner" where they'll be able to scam more money out of them! Like a fail-safe get-rich-quick scam. They're becoming sophisticated nowadays!!!
