So without much ado, let’s look at some of the famous lottery scammers of all time. The next time you hear from them, you know exactly what to do!
Lottery Scammer #1: Hafiz Malik – The Scamming Clerk
Back in June of 2004, a store clerk called Hafiz Malik scammed a customer called Lorraine Teicht out of her winning ticket by swiping it as his own and claiming the fortune six months after the drawing. Soon when Lorraine and her colleagues grew suspicious of the identical ticket, because they had been playing the exact numbers every week, they hired a private investigator to look into the matter. It was soon revealed that Hafiz did in fact scam his customer and had banked a fortune worth $6 million! Lorraine was very upset over the thievery, but unfortunately died just before Malik served a mere one year in prison in 2010.
Lottery Scammer #2: The Jamaican Lottery Scam
This one is about a 55 year old Lorinda Houtchings, who recently got tangled in summer lottery scam for $2.5 million. Lorinda, who is currently taking care of her 79 year old mother, mentioned that she received a call informing her that she was a winner of $2.5 million and a Mercedes Benz from the Publisher’s Clearing House Winner’s International. She instantly believed it because she thought it was one of the many contests her mother had entered. First she was asked to send $205, which she did, then she was asked to send $499 for border pass, which she sent again, then she was asked to send another $500 for a gold stamp, and unfortunately she listened to them and sent them that.
They promised that the prize money would arrive the very next day. But the following day something else happened. They told her that the driver was caught for speeding and she was supposed to pay the fine of a few hundred bucks and that’s when Lorinda decided to verify the facts. Fortunately or unfortunately she found out she was a victim of a scam and that the money paid would never be reimbursed and there was no prize money either. The scammer then got arrested early October 2014.
Lottery Scammer #3: Frank “Fizzy” Onyeachonam
Now this happened early July 2014 and it’s about Frank “Fizzy” Onyeachonam or Fizzy. The lottery scammer was known as Fizzy because of his love for champagne! The 38-year old who resided in Canning Town, east London, ran a massive lottery scam that was originally based from his native place – Nigeria. In order to fund a luxurious lifestyle for himself, he extracted up to £600,000 from various pensioners, mainly because there were very vulnerable. As soon as the law found out, he was jailed for eight years for charges of conspiracy to defraud.
