Customer: replied 2 years ago.
i got the prize on my ticket number and lucky winning threw a serial number and that was in the 3rd category and the problem that i need to check that they send me letter of award and they need to transfer some money to be able for them to finish all my papers at (LA-CAIXA) in (SPAIN) so i want to check what is that taxs and if it is right to transfer my money from JORDAN to SPAIN to get my prize to be transfered to my account in Jordan
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
tell me for any information that i can help
Expert:  FiveStarLaw replied 2 years ago.
Thank you for that new information. I am afraid that I have bad news for you.

This appears to be a common scam that reappears in many places and under many names. A legitimate winning would deduct the taxes and send you a check for the net difference

Unfortunately in this situation the con artist may even send you a cashier's check or money order and request that you deposit it the check and send back a portion of the funds. At sometime in the future - after you have sent the money - you will find that the check you deposited was fraudulent and the money will be assessed against you.

Here is the site to file a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center: http://www.ic3.gov/complaint/default.aspx

Wish I had better news.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
i had received on my address a letter send and signed from (euromillones) and it is origional document that i can show and after that i was surprised that there is temporary stop order and i should pay as 1% tax for (LA-CAIXA) and almost i should pay some money as to have a certificate of not using this prize in (terror-way) so is that right to pay all this taxs and money or not and they will not transfer my money unless iam paying what is written above.
Expert:  FiveStarLaw replied 2 years ago.
Unfortunately this is fraudulent. You will not receive any money I suggest that you do not send them any money

I hope that it helps to know this information

It is your decision and your money. It appears to me to be a scam -- we see several of these fact patterns a day
