ILS

A brightly coloured (wheel of chance style) wheel with the wheel having stopped  on the win slot

ILS claims you have won up to $65,000 in the ILS Big Draw Campaign.

The money will be transferred straight into your bank account.

Claim your prize and you’ll be eligible to win a new Audi TT or an additional $23,000.

Wait, there is more. You can also participate in the German Lotto 6/49 with the unique ILS-Club system. It will only cost $19.95 to play 250 Lotto Rows or $34.95 to play 500 Lotto Rows.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. WA ScamNet contributors have never heard of anyone winning one of these prizes.

Remember, “up to $65,000” could mean just $1.

This is just another lottery ticket seller.

If you are going to play lotto then stick with the government regulated system in Australia. Profits from the Australian lotto system go to legitimate charities that help fellow Australians … not foreign company profits.

It is important to remember that the promotion of overseas lotteries in Australia is illegal.

Aside from the illegal conduct, WA ScamNet has general concerns about these types of promotions:

  • The ticket prices may be higher than the face value of the actual lottery ticket;

  • Consumers usually don't receive the tickets but instead receive statements providing information about the prize draw and any "winnings".

  • Consumers often don’t know if they are part of a syndicate or the size of the syndicate; or even if their money is actually spent on purchasing tickets;

  • It is questionable whether any small “winnings” consumers may occasionally receive are actual prize payouts. The so-called “winnings” could be funded from other consumers’ ticket money as a ploy to keep people “in the game”;

  • Lottery hustlers have been known to use victims’ bank account numbers to make unauthorized withdrawals or their credit card numbers to run up additional charges.
