Special Warning – Lottery scam

SAMMAN Law & Corporate Affairs has been informed about the reception of scam emails announcing financial gains in relation to an alleged “Microsoft/Bill Gates Foundation lottery” unlawfully using the name, and sometimes picture, of Thaima Samman.

These emails ask the people targeted to send their personal details in order to “claim their gains”.

SAMMAN Law & Corporate Affairs wishes to warn against these types of emails, which correspond to a fraud attempt sometimes referred to as “Nigerian” or “419” scams, and asks the persons having received such emails to ignore them and in particular not to reply to them.

The persons targeted by these emails or wishing to obtain more information about them are invited to get in touch with their country’s authorities in charge of the fight against fraud or the services of Interpol in order to make an official complaint.
