European Lottery Foundation
"from Franca Willophy""

Here is yet another typical scam lottery winning notification. 

 Also see this page for a sample in the UK.

Below is another example of a fake lottery.

Judy wrote us to tell about her experiences with the "European Lottery Foundation".

I received a letter from the European Lottery Foundation. When I started pressing the person the letter told me to call he started yelling and hung up. In the letter was a very real looking check that i was to cash and then send a part to the French government for "duty tax". In return I would then be sent my lottery prize of $220,000. THIS IS A SCAM. PLEASE BEWARE!!!!!

The names on my letter are Micheal Dubios, Alferd Yevis, Bronson early bird sweepstakes and Raymond Gifodia. This made me very ANGRY. My family and many others could use money like this and it looks so real your hopes get up even as you know it can not be true. I have been told I can do nothing legally......However I can call the toll free no# every 5 minutes and tell them what i think of them. If anyone else would like to join me the no# is 1-888-298-6148. i know the phone # will be changed soon, but maybe if we can keep the # posted on the internet as they change (and their name which they also change) and continue to hound them it will at least make it harder for them to keep this up! thank you Judy
