Please bear in mind this one simple fact:
you can't possibly have won a prize in a lottery you never ever entered in the first place. (As the old saying goes, if you receive an offer in the mail or via email which sounds too good to be true, then it probably is!).
NEVER SEND MONEY TO CLAIM A PRIZE IN A LOTTERY YOU HAVEN'T ENTERED.
When you win a large Prize in a Lottery which you've legitimately entered through OSA, you'll be called and asked only how and where you want your full cash winnings to be sent. The actual prize remittance to the bank of your choice is a FREE SERVICE offered by OSA. You will never be asked by OSA to send money in the form of "processing fees" or "taxes" to claim your prize.
If you have any doubt at all about the legitimacy of a lottery prize "win" you're mailed or emailed, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
. You may also fax a copy of the questionable mail piece to (+31 20) 7083081
. An OSA Help Desk Representative will be glad to assist you.
Please be vigilant. These lottery "scams" are cleverly and convincingly written, but deceptive and completely fraudulent. Thousands of people have lost money paying "commissions" and "charges" to receive cash prizes they've been told (falsely) they've won. The opportunists behind these scams have been stealing large amounts of money from gullible people and they tarnish the integrity of legitimate marketers of Government Lotteries.
OSA has been entering players into overseas Government Lotteries and Draws, and sending them their winnings since 1988. Over 155,000 players have taken advantage of this service. Please take care to avoid any misleading "Lottery Win" scams. We recommend you continue to play for a genuine chance to win in the Government and State Lotto offers you receive from OSA in the future.
