Hi, and thank you for asking your question.

If you received any message on Facebook notifying you about a large sum of money won supposedly via a Facebook lottery, I'm afraid that's a hoax/scam, and NOT from Facebook. Please check these links:

If you already paid them what they asked for, please start a chargeback process with your bank/credit card company ASAP - they will be able to get things sorted out for you.

If you need any further assistance with this issue, please be sure to reply back to me below.
