Advance Fee Scam

Fraudsters contact victims to inform them that they have won a prize and ask for money/information to process the same.


  • Participating in dubious lucky draws
  • Responding to messages saying you've won when you haven't participated in the first place


  • If the call/email is genuine, why would caller require your information? They should already have it.
  • Why does the call require you to pay fees for getting the prize?
  • Did the caller address you by name or simply mentioned “Sir/Madam”?


  • Never share your personal details with anyone, it can be used to take money from your account or card
  • If you suspect that your personal details have been compromised, report it immediately to your bank
