A Deaf man made a video on the Deaf Lottery. Here is what he said in his warning video.
Hello. I want to warn you big time... Someone tried to connect with me. Her name is Andrea White from Glasgow, near the airport area. How did we meet? through Facebook. She contacted me. I mailed her, asking who she was, could I see a picture of her face. She told me that she was new to facebook, that she wanted to make friends. So I decided to see how we got on, in conversation. She said that she was a Deaf woman living in Glasgow. I told her I was from Bristol. I asked her which school she attended. She said it 'was far away." I asked again WHICH school she attended. She said 'Australia'. I told her I was from Australia myself, I'm from Yorkshire but told her I moved to Britain, to see what she had to say, as a test. So I asked her the name of the school she attended. She would not tell me. This made me suspicious. You know Deaf people always say which school they attended, and tell me more, that's to be expected. However this woman was very reluctant to tell me, this is very strange.
There is something strange there. She tried to tell me about the Deaf Lottery. Well, the Deaf Lottery is trying to CON YOU. Also, if you want, anybody, to be all excited that you won the lottery, it's actually someone trying to trick you, the person, it doesn't matter who or what name you get, the Deaf Lottery is trying to trick you, in getting your bank details, credit cards,and so on. You pay Â£500, and if you 'won', you'd get GB STG Â£600,000! They say that the deaf lottery's money is from the world. I asked the person where the money was from. he said France. I thought it was strange. Ok. We continued on chatting. He told me that If I won 600,000, fine. If not, I'll get my money back, The Â£500, but they would take Â£200 in 'banking charges'.
I pay Â£500. They give me Â£300 back, keep Â£200. BUT that I'd certainly have won Â£600,000. I was suspicious, and asked them for details of their website. They told me their website isn't updated with the latest information yet, so I was to wait. I told them I would look at the website and read the information FIRST before making any decisions. Well, they were extremely persistent in trying to get me to sign up. Well, forget it! I'm WARNING YOU, If someone wants to connect with you on Facebook, and you don't know this person, IGNORE IT! If you know this person well, then you can add this person to your facebook. It happened to me. So I removed these people from my Facebook. SO I WARN YOU, avoid anything to do with Deaf Lottery. It's already happened in America. A lot of Deaf people's lives were ruined there. I googled a lot of information on this scam, and also looked at Youtube videos where Deaf people gave signed accounts of the scam, over losing money. They never actually won anything. I'm warning you. Please don't let them fool you! I warn you. I support the British Deaf community, and other Deaf communities worldwide. Ok? Thank you for listening to me.
