Game Over: The Lottery You Can Never Win
It can happen to anyone. The phone rings and a skilled telemarketer excitedly
announces that you’re a winner. The game might be El Gordo from Spain or a lot-
tery from Canada, Australia or some other far away land. Before you have time to
even ponder how this could be possible, they are dazzling you with all the ways
your life is about to change. Your grandkids will go to the finest schools. You will
travel the world. You will have the best of everything. Money will never again be a
Think again. Federal law prohibits foreign lotteries. You cannot win. Yet, every week
AARP ElderWatch receives calls from consumers about foreign lotteries and the
promise of collecting their prize. On a good day, callers look to ElderWatch to con-
firm whether or not they are about to be scammed. They are. Other times, the vic-
tim has already parted with thousands of dollars and the money is gone forever.
The scam scenario can vary. Sometimes the caller pretends to be a representative of
U.S. Customs because they’ve impounded a check for a large sum of money. In order
to claim it you must send money immediately. In other cases the caller pretends to
be a government representative of the country awarding the prize, but before you
can claim your winnings you must pay the taxes, processing fees or any other
charges that they can conjure. In almost every case they want an urgent wire trans-
fer of funds. Sometimes, they will conveniently have your address and be able to
direct you to the nearest wire location.
If they successfully victimize you once, the calls will continue, and the only money
you will ever see are the dollars you send. One victim sent over $80,000 incremen-
tally over several months and then tried to refinance her home because she learned
that she had won an even bigger prize and with it came even higher fees. The bank
contacted AARP ElderWatch to try and convince her that she was caught up in a
scam. She refused to believe she’d been duped. She had lost too much to accept reality.
Blame greed. Blame ignorance but blaming victims accomplishes nothing. These con
artists are masters of the game. They prey on any information they have and use it
to their advantage, and if sticky sweet kindness doesn’t score some money, they turn
vicious. Placing calls in the middle of the night, using profanity and threatening vic-
tims are just some of their manipulative tactics. Older people living alone are forced
to choose between paying and feeling safe. Then, they feel so utterly embarrassed,
ashamed and afraid that they would rather suffer in silence than admit to having
been so devastatingly deceived. And the perpetrators brazenly dial their next
Most of these lottery operations are conducted outside the United States and many
are connected to forms of organized crime with the moneys they collect used for
drugs or other illegal activities. Multiple law enforcement and government agencies,
advocacy groups and others are working to stop this form of financial abuse, but as
long as these criminals continue to draw money, lottery scams will continue.
The solution is simple. Hang up the phone. Don’t argue. Don’t engage in conversa-
tion. Don’t wonder at the possibility of winning. Hang up. Game Over!
