Malaysian Lottery Brochure Fake

  • Share via E-mail

How the scam works:

(with video below exposing fake scratchies) In the last few months, a well-designed travel brochure has been hitting millions of homes. It has started in Australia a few years ago and now is in full blast all over the world.

The publication contains lottery scratch tickets offering complimentary lottery prizes to celebrate a new investment opportunity. The scratch tickets reveal a prize of $175,000. Since the winning is published in a nice and glossy magazine, several people really believe they hit the jackpot!

The winners are informed there is a $7,000 government tax to pay before the proceeds can be released and the travel company will pay half. The recipient just has to send the other half by wire transfer, to Malaysia or Hong Kong.

The publishers of the brochure require the winners to provide a copy of their passport for authentication, along with bank account details. As you can imagine, the "winners" of $130,000 are waiting in vain to get their money after that, as there is no prize.

Watch the video below to see over 25 exposed fake brochure pages with winning prizes - see if you received one of them!

How to avoid:

Ignore the fact that is a well-designed travel brochure. It’s not a real deal. Scammers can make everything nowadays look official, especially with the advancement of technology. Above and below you have real pictures of these fake brochures. As you can see they have similar design, sign that behind the scam are the same people. There are more pictures below.

    yep got the glossy brochure in the mail as well saying I won the 2nd prize $175000. Alex Wong and Trevor Lin were the names used. Had to send $4100 to get an authentication form from the Chinese govt. Very convincing and clever but bastards!!!!! Had me sucked in and I am no pushover for the scammers. As soon as I had to send money I became suspicious.
