Harry Black Gave You Part Of His Lottery Winnings

This is an odd one that preys on your greed – Harry Black is not going to share his lottery winnings though.

I spotted this in my SPAM Arrest inbox today:

from: Lacour, Sarah Banks

Harry Black gave you part of his lottery winnings as charity contact him via e-mail (harry.black0147@rogers.com) You can view this link http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2013/05/28/harry-black-lotto-649-winner_n_3349204.html

True Link but Fake Email

The link to the Huffington Post (Canada) story is a true link – I verified it by typing it in rather than clicking the link directly – to the story about Harry Black winning 37.1 million dollars on the 6/49 Lotto.

But the email is fake. I haven’t tried it but I guess you’ll be conned into parting with some money in order to ‘release’ the winnings to your account or something equally devious.

As usual, these sort of emails are too good to be true. There’s no indication that Harry Black will be distributing his winnings. In fact he plans to travel and then buy land to build his dream house. Good luck to him!

Beware of emails like this – the spammers behind them are out to cheat you.

    I got the same email from someone claimin ro be harry black. The email came from harryblack1@rogers.com sayin that he radomly chose me to giv two million dollars to. But i have to deposit 563 dollars in order to open an account wit the bank hsbc before harry could deposit it. My husband believed it but i knew something was wrong. Glad i looked into it.

    • JPaston on August 16, 2013

      There you go, Ashley, well done for looking it up. Give yourself a pat on the back for checking first rather than blindly following through. Your husband should be proud of you.

  • clifford on August 20, 2013

    I got this email and immediately checked it out as it came from tmailto:BMathias@pierce.ctc.edu]. Too good to be true.

  • Jackie Brown on August 20, 2013

    Thank you so much for posting this.
    I got an email too, my husband left me via email half a year ago and I’m struggling to make ends meet, so this was like manna from heaven, and I replied back with photos of family and myself, but then googled and found your post.

    Sometimes people can be so disappointing and disgusting.

    • JPaston on August 27, 2013

      It’s true, there are too many scam merchants preying on people like you. Glad you caught it in time before you became further out of pocket.

    I got this very same email TODAY which happens to be my birthday!
    The email sent from shows as a well known Professor from a well known University.. I called the Professor and he assured me he had nothing to do with it (but I already knew that).

    Anyway, heads up with this email, use common sense and report it.

    Blessings,

      Thanks for that info, Michael, and good to know the details of what happens if you reply to the original offer email.
      As you say, let it be a warning to anyone hooked into this scam!

  • Lisa on September 30, 2013

    Just got mine this morning and I was intrigued as anyone would be :) but I to am leery 2013 who would’t be. Now reading I see why, Thanks guy’s..

  • John on January 15, 2014

    I just got mine, too, and all I can say is: WOW!

    First thing I’m going to do this morning is give my two weeks’ notice, then I’m cracking some champagne and then, well shoot, the sky’s the limit!

    I figure between Harry’s good will, that African prince who’s sending me $20 million just for giving him my visa card info, and that rich widow who just needed a place to park $250 mil while her deceased husband’s estate is figured out, well I’m never going to have to work another day in my life!

    The generosity of people on the Internet around the globe is so heartwarming. It literally brings tears to my eyes….as soon as I receive the funds from one of these three people, I’m sending $10,000,000.00 to that dying child in Sri Lanka who needs the kidney transplant. I figure it’s the least I can do since I’ve been so fortunate!

I am very happy to hear from you because I believe this is a life time opportunity for you and your family, and i have decided to make sure this is put on the internet for the world to see and to ease your skepticism.

    After taken care of the needs of my far relations, make some of my friends millionaires because i believe in making others comfortable and happy like me. I have decided to assist the local fire department, the Red Cross, Haiti, some hospitals majorly involved in cancer treatment, and some other charity organizations in Africa, Asia and Europe that fight cancer, Alzheimer’s and diabetes. However, since i won the jackpot Lottery, I have been investing ahead of the future, also traveled to scotland for visit.

    I like to re-assure you of the legitimacy of this donation as i will not be involved in any fraudulent act and will never be, i only want to feel good by helping people, i will advise you as the prospective lucky winners to be calm not to lose this great opportunity which millions of people are trying to entangled but the chances just couldn’t come for them because a lot of people are out there to discourage them as they don’t know how it works and have never seen such before.
