Euromillions of fraud scams play a very special role on the Internet, because black sheep often appear especially where there is a lot of money involved.

This page is intended to provide a few tips and hints to ensure that no fraudster has a chance with the lottery players who inform themselves about


How do you spot a Euromillions scam?

Often Euromillions scammers become active through e-mails, text messages or phone calls. They usually pretend to be official lottery employees and ask for sensitive information. Neither we nor a reputable provider would ever request such data. In most cases, Euromillions of scams can be identified by one of the following points:
- The contact happens unexpectedly and suddenly.
- You are supposed to have won a prize without taking part in a competition.
- You should always react immediately or very quickly, otherwise your alleged prize will forfeit.
- The email address or phone number is not an official number.
- You will not be contacted directly.
- The person on the phone does not speak your language well and seems to read a formulated text.
- The message is full of grammar or spelling mistakes.
- Something about the message seems strange and incongruous to you (serious companies spend a lot of time and effort on their customer communication).

What you should always avoid at the Euromillions:

- Never pass on sensitive information, best hang up immediately or delete the e-mail unopened.
- Never reply to such an email and don't click anything in the email.
- Never open an attachment from an unknown person, especially no .zip or .exe files.
- Never call back a suspicious number.


What you should always do instead:

- Take a close look at who is calling or sending the email. The email address, which is often instantly recognizable as fraudulent, is usually hidden behind a username that matches the subject. Don't let this fool you and always search for the full email address.
- Search the Internet for the subject of the email or the phone number. Euromillions of scammers have to send thousands of e-mails to make their scams worthwhile. Often there are already reports about their fraudulent intentions on the Internet.
