REPORT FRAUDULENT EMAILS AND SMS TEXTS

If you believe that you have received a fraudulent message or if you are a victim of fraud, please contact us immediately and send a copy of the scam message to answers@bigfreelotto.com. We also advise you to contact your local consumer protection officials or the National Fraud Center at www.fraud.org. You may also submit a complaint to the Federal Trade Commission at their website: www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov

If you reside in United Kingdom we also suggest that you report the fraudulent message to the ActionFraud website http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/scam-emails, which provides information about fraud and internet crime. They will forward these fraudulent messages to the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau run by the City of London Police for collation and analysis. This will enable crucial intelligence to be gathered and preventative action to be taken. The activity will seek to disrupt the fraudsters and close down the links between them and the victim.

HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF

If you get a text or an email that's unsolicited or from an unidentifiable source, protect yourself with these tips:

• If the message appears to be from a legitimate source, contact the source's main phone number (not the number provided in the text) and verify. Legitimate businesses, such as banks, do not send out texts that elicit a response.
• Delete messages from unknown sources without reading.
• Do not click on links or download apps from an unverified source.
• Never provide sensitive information to an unverified texter or email sender.
• Add security software to your mobile phone and/or computer.
• Contact your phone provider and alert it to the messages you've been receiving.
