Warnings about loterry scam
We have noticed that there is one scam on the internet using our company name. This is not connected with our company in any way.
Do not believe you have won a prize in a lottery in which you never participated.
Always be suspicious if you are asked to pay advance fees in order to get a prize! If it seems too good to be true - it probably is!
Be aware that your identity details can be used by the offenders to commit criminal offences in your name, to get access to your bank accounts, or to open up lines of credit in your name.
- Do not reply to any of these messages
- In particular, do not send any money
- Do not send or hand over identification documents - not even copies
- Never surrender details of your bank accounts or payment cards
If you are already in contact with these criminals or have already paid advance fees: Save all documents of transactions and remittances
- Never agree to meet the criminals in person in order to receive a prize - you will not receive any money and you may be putting yourself in danger
- Contact your local police immediately and follow their advice
