13th May 2019 - Lottery Scam

On 13th May 2019, telephone number +12028500531 was reported as being used by scammers to pretend to be William Ben using email address as part of a Lottery Scam.

A Lottery Scam is a variation of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam. Instead of the victim being offered an inheritance or some other funds by a stranger, they will be told that their email has won an online lottery and to collect their prize they just have to email someone to claim it. Of course, there will be fees that need to be paid, and the prize (usually cash, but sometimes luxury cars as well) doesn't actually exist. These scams often pretend that the lottery is being sposored by a multi-national corportation sch as Ford, BMW, Microsoft or Facebook; although sometimes they claim to actually be a real lottery such as the UK National Lottery. There is no such thing as a lottery that picks random email addresses to win - if you haven't purchased a ticket for a specific lottery then you can't win it.

Here is the email that the scammer sent to his victims.
Heading home 4000 Aberdeen Rd, Nashville, TN 37205.
